Associate Alumnae,, 1976-June 1977


  • 1976-June 1977

Scope and Contents

The Associate Alumnae was founded by the first graduating class of NJC in 1922 and its journal, the Alumnae Bulletin, was first published in 1926. This office worked closely with the college's deans, and, among other things, provided a source of contributions for annual scholarships and, most importantly, the unrestricted Dean's Fund, used to finance special projects at the Dean's discretion.

Thick file. Begins with the commencement of Jewel Plummer Cobb's deanship.

Documents include records relating to special trusts and bequests, memoranda, correspondence, some chapter newsletters, as well as several editions of the Alumnae Bulletin. There is a copy and mention of a Freshman Survey conducted by the Assoc. Alumnae.

Contents provide evidence of the important role played by Douglass alumnae in areas of fund raising and student recruitment, as well as career counseling, financial aid/scholarship assistance, and networking. Involvement of Dean required personal appearances at functions and on-going correspondence.

A portion of the folder's documents relate to the Nielson Project, an oral history project that was initially endorsed by various state alumnae associations, but controversy arose over the projects director and continued support was rescinded.
