Each fall from 1951 through 1958, a group of women scholars met at the Women's Archives to choose a broad topic for the year: e.g. women in a particular period of American history. They met bi-monthly, one member presenting a paper at each meeting, with refreshments and discussion. The papers were collected and kept in the Women's Archives. In 1951-1952 and 1952-1953 they were typed and bound in binders; later papers are loose. Plans to publish the entire collection never materialized, nor did plans to develop an undergraduate course or seminar on women. Membership dues were assessed when the Library could no longer manage the expense. The group disbanded in 1960.
