Administrative History

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) Austin Branch was organized on November 15, 1923, with Mrs. F. L. Jewett elected the first president of the branch. The first general meeting was held on February 8, 1924 with the speaker, Dr. F. L. Ellis, giving a speech titled “Status of Women in College and University Faculties.” In November 1925, AAUW Austin member Grace Delano Clark persuaded the organization to take on a project establishing a public library for Austin. Austin Public Library Association was established and erected a temporary wood frame building on the site in 1926. Clark volunteered as the first librarian. The branch also purchased Austin Public Library’s first Bookmobile in 1951.

In 1927, the AAUW Austin Branch established an endowment fund at the University of Texas. The endowment was completed in 1992 and is used for annual fellowships to women in the last year of their doctoral program at the University of Texas at Austin. Additionally, AAUW Austin Branch helped found the Austin Woman’s Club in 1928. During the 1930s, the AAUW established a milk fund for children in Austin, coordinated with other organizations to provide food and clothing to local residents, and introduced the first “talking book” for the blind. In 1937, the organization helped start a Well Baby Clinic and worked to improve conditions at Brackenridge Hospital. The organization co-sponsored (with the City of Austin) the Chalmers Nursery School in 1941, a Works Progress Administration project. The name changed to Austin Community Nursery Schools (ACNS) in 1944 while under Community Chest. It then changed to Mainspring Schools under United Way, but the AAUW Austin Branch continued to provide support. In 1996, the branch started an endowment fund for Mainspring teachers to further their education.

In the early 1950s, the branch sponsored meetings to stuff thousands of envelopes with information on Infantile Paralysis and helped staff downtown booths on the first day of the March of Dimes Campaign. They also sponsored “Sales Days” in the 1950s to raise money for the AAUW UT scholarship fund and assisted teaching English and U.S. citizenship exam preparation at the Pan American Center. In the 1960s, the AAUW branch members volunteered at the new educational TV station KLRN-ETV and participated in the Community Council of Austin and Travis County (which later became part of the United Fund).

The AAUW Austin Branch celebrated their 50th anniversary in November 1973 at the Driskill Hotel in the same room where the first meeting was held. Three of the original members were in attendance. Prompted by the national AAUW biennial topic “Our Beleaguered Earth,” the Austin Branch joined with other local groups to form We Care Austin, a women’s environmental coalition that worked with Austin area planners on development plans for Austin. In 1975, AAUW Austin developed and helped fund Women in Early Texas, a collection of biographies on notable women who participated in the early history of Texas. In 1983, the branch established what is now Literacy Austin and continued to support and serve on the board of directors until 1997. From 1993 to 1994, the group assisted in educational equity workshops and Austin Independent School District Sexual Harassment Policy formulation.

Throughout the early 2000s, the group raised money for the Legal Advocacy Fund through hosting fashion shows. They also collaborated with several community organizations to host “Woman-to-Woman,” an intergenerational dialogue on cultural background and identity. Starting in 2012, the branch began volunteering with Girlstart and Latinitas, two local non-profits that bring hands-on STEM and STEAM education to 4th-8th grade girls in programs throughout the school year. In 2013, the branch hosted an event with AAUW Texas and AAUW Georgetown titled "When Women Succeed, America Succeeds" with Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi at Austin Community College for Women's Equality Day. AAUW Austin participated in Equal Pay Day at the State Capitol in April 2015, collecting signatures for the Governor and Lieutenant Governor, and visited legislators at the Capitol in May 2015 to rally for passage of HB 187, authored by Representative Senfronia Thompson and addressing unlawful discrimination in employment compensation. In 2019, AAUW Austin members promoted the AAUW Work Smart program at the Women's Empowerment Conference and AAUW Fellowship recipients presented on their academic research to AAUW Austin members.

Scope and Contents

The collection is arranged by yearbooks (1925-2011), membership cards (1940-1960, 1970-1988), and chronological files (1923-2011). The chronological files make up the bulk of the collection, and are grouped by president from 1923-1973. Chief correspondents are the president as well as the treasurer of the branch during that term. From 1973-2011, the files continue chronological order but as an additional donation, they did not retain the organization's original grouping by president.

The yearbooks date from 1925-2011 and contain membership directories as well as lists of officers, calendars, programs of yearly meetings, and branch bylaws. The membership cards date from 1940-1960 and 1970-1988 and provide more biographical information on members than some of the yearbooks, including colleges attended, majors/degrees, and occupations/employers.

The early chronological files from 1923-1940 contain less documentation compared to other decades, and largely consist of meeting minutes; correspondence on a national, sectional, divisional, and local level; and branch reports. In the 1927 branch report, the secretary states that "the chief activity of the Branch has been establishment and maintenance of an Austin Public Library, which through the tireless efforts of Mrs. David Lee Clarke and her efficient committee, has been accomplished with credit to the organization." The reports also contain budget information, membership numbers, and activities of the branch including book groups, international relations committees, and education committees. Additional materials dating from 1925-1938 were accessioned later and document the state and national conventions, children's clinic, children's theatre, and the public library project.

Chronological files dating from the 1940s and 1950s consist of minutes, correspondence, and branch reports as well. Scrapbooks contain printed material including newspaper clippings about AAUW Austin and various event programs. Material documenting the group's involvement in community efforts during World War II is of interest, including a KTBC radio series the AAUW produced on women in war. Documentation of the purchase of the Austin Public Library's first Bookmobile in 1951 is of interest in the correspondence and financial records during Mrs. C. E. Browning's term as president. The 1960s is represented largely through correspondence, minutes, branch reports, bulletins, and various documentation on conventions and legislative programs. Committees including the Fellowships Committee, Community Affairs Committee, and Program Development Committee are represented as well as the group's focused study topics throughout the years.

The records from the 1970s and 1980s consist of correspondence, minutes, financial reports, convention materials, and various printed materials on events and areas of study. Of note is correspondence from Austin City Council members to then-president Kay Goodwin acknowledging her support for the adoption of the 1971 Library System Development Plan. A 60th anniversary speech from 1983 contains memories of events throughout the branch's history.

Material from the 1990s consists of membership lists; documentation on special events, including an Antiques Forum and various award ceremonies; and a scrapbook documenting the branch activities from 1994-1999. President notebooks, correspondence, and handbooks are also represented. Color photographs from 1999-2000 document meetings, luncheons, forums, fashion shows, holiday party, endowment awards and contain identification (photos #044-073). Photos from 2008-2009 largely document the 2008 Membership Open House, as well as the 85th Birthday of AAUW Austin Branch in November 2008. Other material from the 2000s includes scholarship information, conference materials, and partnerships with the school district and Mainspring Schools. Of note is documentation of the Frances Malmberg Endowed Scholarship recipients in the mid-2000s. The scholarship was created in 2004 to assist female students, 25 years or older, enrolled at Austin Community College.
