Associated Women Students (AWS), formerly called the Women's League, was formed between 1953 and 1954 at the University of Maryland. A self-governing body of women students, the association's purposes were establishing and enforcing standards of conduct for women students; sponsoring cultural and social activities; coordinating women's activities on campus; and promoting the development of leadership, good scholarship, and self-responsibility among the co-eds. The records of the Associated Women Students consist of five scrapbooks dating from 1957 to 1961 and 1964 to 1967. The scrapbooks document the various activities sponsored by AWS and include minutes, by-laws, constitutions, publications, and newsclippings. There are also photos of individual members, group meetings, and various activities of the association.
