The University of Houston Women's Association (UHWA) Records contain records of the organization from its founding in 1962 through 1994. The bulk of the materials date from the 1980s. Most of the UHWA papers consist of paper documents with a few photographs. The collection is arranged chronologically within each series, adhering as much as possible to the original order. However, the organizations of some items varied with the majority of the material, resulting in slight reordering. Materials regarding the Faculty Wives' Club, the Women's Club of the University of Houston, and the American Association of University Women, initially found among the UHWA documents, were removed and arranged in separate collections. The researcher may find it helpful to examine these smaller collections as well as the University of Houston Women's Association Papers.
The fourteen series of the UHWA papers largely follow the chronological order of the overall collection. The series are: the Executive Board, Business Meeting Minutes, Financial Records, Mary H. Hoffman Scholarship, Membership, Publicity, Activities, Newsletters, Correspondence, Photographs, Yearbooks, Miscellaneous, Board Binders, and Unprocessed Materials.
