Scope and Contents
The collection, 1920-2002, includes minutes, reports, correspondence, financial and membership records, scrapbooks and albums, and other materials that document the history and activities of the Western New York Branch of the National League of American Pen Women. The records also include the branch's newsletter Pen Whims, 1950-2000.
The president's records, 1952-1998, provide documentation for the organization's activities not covered due to gaps in the minutes and the annual reports. Additional documentation can also be found in the scrapbooks and albums, circa 1921-1997 that not only document the activities of the organization but also document the activities of its members.
The records also contain two written histories of the branch (1959, 1963) and a tape-recorded history by Virginia Cummings dated May 1986.
