To celebrate Women’s History Month, the University of Houston Libraries will feature archival stories from the Carey C. Shuart Women’s Research Collection, which preserves the records of women’s organizations and the papers of Texas women.

The photo is from the Houston Area Women’s Center collection of photographs, which contain both color and black and white photographs of various sizes, proof sheets, negatives, slides, and some correspondence. The bulk of the collection chronicles the varied activities of the organization, including staff activities such as work, picnics and parties, fundraisers, demonstrations, conferences, seminars and programs. The collection illustrates the development and growth of H.A.W.C. from a small volunteer grass roots organization to a professional group with a complex agenda and organizational structure.
