Administrative: Local Leagues, 1930 - 2013

 Series — Multiple Containers
Identifier: MSP 55, Series 2

Scope and Contents

Within this series, the correspondence subseries largely consists of letters to elected officials and civic groups concerning policies supported by the League. The annual reports document a variety of issues the League considered important, including environmental action, land use plans, hiking and parks development in addition to work on the status of women. The "Look Books" outline general League procedures and platforms on a number of national and international issues, and the League Newsletters, titled "The Bulletin", document the ongoing evolution of League stances on these issues. "The Bulletin" is a strong documentary source for all of the League's actions.
