Association for Women In Science Records, 1976-2002 | University of Houston Libraries
These original materials are available in Special Collections.
The current collection consists of general organizational records. Administrative materials such as agendas, minutes, financial reports, bylaws, correspondences of the AWIS Gulf Coast Chapter are present. Events, fundraisers, magazines, newsletters, publications and other programs make up the rest of the collection. The bulk of the papers are dated between 1993 and 1999.
The records are arranged into twelve series: Organization, Events, Financial, Fundraisers, Magazines, Membership, Mentor, Newsletters, Publications, Scholarships, Other Organizations and Miscellaneous. The arrangement is alphabetical and chronological by year. Financial materials are separated into treasurer's reports, chapter dues and bank statements. Some related documents also are included in Fundraiser and Scholarship Series. The Events Series is a mixture of documents relevant to AWIS events and other organizations' events. Newsletters have been sorted by those published by Gulf Coast Chapter and those from national AWIS. The current organization was imposed upon the collection to standardize the various methods of filing.
