Alumnae Association Formed

In 1900, the Class of 1899 first organized an association of the women graduates of Brown. The organization was initially named the Andrews Association, in honor of Brown President Elisha Andrews, who worked to help gain women admittance to the college. In 1906, it became the Alumnae Association of Brown University, functioning under that name until the merger of Pembroke College and the men’s college in 1971, when the two alumni clubs merged as well.
