Biographical/Historical Note: The Brandeis University National Women’s Committee was a group that began to provide philanthropic support to Brandeis University which was founded in 1948. Once they had helped the University gain resources for their on-campus library the Committee continued to raise money and gather books for other libraries and the justice system to be used in prisons. Their work was highly regarded at local, state, and national level, receiving letters from first ladies, and members of the state assembly as well as meeting the Speaker of the House.

Scope and Content: Documents pertaining to the Atlanta Chapter of the Committee’s fundraising and membership events, as well as internal documents such as chair women manuals, from 1950 to 2006. There are also University materials such as documents from the first commencement.
