Overview

The records include a history of the organization, membership information, correspondence, financial records, and information about special projects and events.

Historical Note

The society, "All Maine Women", was founded at the University of Maine in April, 1925 to recognize distinguished leadership, scholarship and service to the University and campus community by outstanding women of the incoming senior class.

It is the highest honorary but non-scholastic society for women. Members are chosen from the three upper classes on the basis of exemplary character and integrity, MAINE spirit, scholarship, leadership, and potential for continued contributions to the University of Maine.

Members of All Maine Women can be distinguished by their special pins, sweaters, and the tiny pine tree they wear on their cheek one day a week and at special functions.

The Living Library Project was a joint project with the University of Maine President's Council of Retired Council.

Arrangement

The University of Maine All Maine Women Records are arranged intellectually by the series 1. Member Relations Records, 2. Event & Meeting Records, 3. Financial Records and 4.
