DescriptionTwo minute books, a lecture record book, and a postage book for the association. The minute books, dating from 1967 when the group was formed, contain a record of committee meetings held on a monthly basis, until its winding down in 1982 due to dwindling numbers and loss of subscriptions. They detail the finances of the association and plans for annual lecture programmes, including speakers and titles of papers. Also includes newspaper cuttings and some loose correspondence relating to national and international women's issues. The lecture record book contains details and sometimes a synopsis of each lecture delivered to the association by its invited speakers, and also contains newspaper cuttings describing the lecture and its attendance. This book was also used to record meetings of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women. The postage book records financial outlay for postage and stationary from 1968-1979.
