A Historical Synopsis Of The National Association Of University Women
The College Alumnae Club was founded in Washington D.C. in 1910 by Mrs. Mary Church Terrell, Dr. Sara Winifred Brown, Dr. Nancy Fairfax Brown and Miss Mary Cromwell.
On the shoulders of these visionary women, the organization has grown to more than 50 branches nationwide.
The tenets of the association remain the same and serve as its bedrock: to stimulate women to attain professional excellence; to exert influence in various movements for civic good; and to promote a close personal and intellectual fellowship among professional women.
