How Did Local Branches of the American Association of University
Women Contribute to Their Communities, 1900-1940?

American Association of University Women (AAUW) leaders in Binghamton focused their efforts on improving education, and three aspects of their educational work are especially noteworthy: their loan program for local women college students; their creations of study groups open to the wider community; and their support for improvements in local schools.
