The Morgan State University Women: The First Sixty Years, 1934 - 1994 is the history of the organization as told by members of the club, as well as from primary documents such as newsletters, newspaper articles, correspondence and archival materials found in the MSUW collection in Morgan State University’s Soper Library. The study includes the reasoning behind starting the organization, how it evolved through the Depression, changes in their exclusive membership status, and their involvement in the campus and surrounding community. Additionally, the book includes an overview of the clubwomen’s movement and the establishment of auxiliaries and faculty wives groups at other historically black colleges and universities.
