Records of The Northwestern University Settlement Association Evanston Woman's Board

 Collection
Identifier: 41/8
All records have been removed from three-ringed binders in which they were originally kept.

Boxes 1-3 contain records relating to the “Dollar Letter” program, spanning the years from 1928 through 1979. The “Dollar Letter” Lists include the names of each Evanston Woman's Board member with the addresses of all the people that she sent pledge letters to and the amount of money received. Due to the different methods of recording and maintaining the address lists and the returns, the dates sometimes overlap. Materials relating to the “Dollar Letter” program are also included with the President's Records and the Treasurer's Records.

The President's Records, 1958-1981 (Boxes 3-6), contain annual reports, meeting agendas and minutes, correspondence, “Dollar Letters”, financial records, and newspaper clippings. The Publicity Chair Notebook, 1968-1972, also contains meeting minutes and newspaper clippings.

The Treasurer's Records, 1911-1983 (Boxes 6-7) contains deposit, withdrawal, and receipt records, dues payments, and “Dollar Letter” returns. The Treasurer's Reports include monthly and annual Treasurer's Reports, expense estimates, and some correspondence for the years 1956-1984.
