Biography/History

The Pullman Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) was organized in December 1917 as a branch of the Association of Collegiate Alumnae which merged in April 1921 with the Southern Association of Collegiate Women to form the AAUW. On January 27, 1927 the Washington branches, including Pullman, met at a convention in Longview and voted to establish the Washington State Division of the AAUW. Through this division the Pullman Branch participated in international, national, and regional projects. One of these projects is the Million Dollar Fellowship, established in 1927, which encourages higher education for women throughout the world, This fellowship prompted the establishment of the Washington State fellowship fund, the Margaret C. Snell Fellowship, in October 1933.

The Pullman Branch hosted the Washington State AAUW Convention in 1967 in honor of the branch's fiftieth anniversary and its members' active support in promoting better opportunities for women through higher education, improved education at all levels, and the betterment of the American and world communities, Toward these ends the Pullman Branch formed or supported literature groups, the Library Gift Fund, the Reading is FUN-damental Program, money drives for UNICEF, a Status of Women Committee, and Global Interdependence Study Groups.
