Duluth Branch’s History:
Miss Anna Hare, a teacher at a private boarding school for girls,
attended a national AAUW convention in 1892. On her return she
organized the Duluth Branch in 1894. The school later closed and the
Branch was disbanded. The Duluth Branch was again organized in 1901
with 28 members under the leadership of Mrs. Linus Kline. (Our earliest
members never used their first names!)
The Duluth Branch members have worked over the years to provide leadership
and programs in areas such as gender equity, workshops for girls on career opportunities, and sharing research done on women’s issues.
Providing scholarships for post Baccalaureate study has been an ongoing project for many years. Our Branch meetings are a good place to network and enjoy the company of some of the most interesting women in Duluth.
Our 170,000 members and supporters span local and virtual communities, cities and college campuses, all over the world. On campuses, we foster the next generation of women in leadership and in the workplace. After graduation, we mentor, fund, and support educational and professional development. From college through career and beyond, we’re working to change the future.
