Historical Note:
The Kingsport Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) was organized 26 August 1948 after a meeting of thirty-five interested college women. The AAUW is the national organization that seeks to promote education for women after college. Members must graduate from an AAUW qualified college.
The Kingsport Branch received its charter on 23 December 1948. The first president was Joanne Allen. In its early days, the group held monthly business and educational meetings. As the focus of the organization changed, the group began holding both day and night meetings and combined branch meetings in the months of September, December, and May.

ABSTRACT:
The Kingsport Branch collection of the American Association of University Women contains a variety of materials that detail the group’s leadership, membership, activities, and publications from the branch’s founding in 1948 through 1999. Materials include minutes, by-laws, scrapbooks, correspondence, and yearbooks.
