Biographical / Historical

The Charlotte Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) began in 1913 as a college club for literary study. This club soon affiliated with the Southern Association of College Women and, in 1921, joined the AAUW. The North Carolina Division was formed in 1927. As one of the largest branches, the Charlotte AAUW has taken an active part in the development of the statewide organization. Among the branch's most successful projects have been the Interpreter Service, the Charlotte College Library Project, and its annual book sales. The Charlotte Branch has supported a variety of local and national causes, including the Little Theater of Charlotte and the Equal Rights Amendment.
