46 boxes (18 linear ft.)
Collection number: MS 354

Abstract:
International organization. Records of Officers, Board of Trustees/Directors, and Annual Meetings make up aproximately half of collection. Correspondence and memoranda are extensive. The other half consists of files of various committees, including the Project Grants Committee, whose members screen grant applications and recommend, semi-annually, the most promising ones to the Board of Trustees/Directors for funding. Records of VGIF sponsorship of the International Federation of University Women and of the Asian Women's Institute are particularly strong, and other project grants are also well documented.

Historical Note

Originally called the Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund for University Women, the VGIF was founded in 1969 by a group of women affiliated with the International Federation of University Women. They sought to create a fund to provide monies for projects "which further the development of educational theory and practice, foster the development of human resources, and advance the cause of mutual understanding and cooperation among university women throughout the world," particularly in developing nations. The incorporators named the fund for Virginia Gildersleeve, Dean of Barnard College from 1911 to 1947, in honor of her commitment to the concept that women college graduates could, given the resources, make significant contributions to the development of their countries and to the world at large. To this end, the organization regularly underwrites conferences, workshops, and educational projects undertaken by individuals and organizations all over the world.

For a comprehensive history of the Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund, please see History: 1968-1978, by former president Althea K. Hottel in SERIES I: ADMINISTRATION.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

Because VGIF officers have requested that additions to the records be processed periodically, the container list consists of two parts. Part I (8.5 linear feet) dates from 1969 to 1996, and Part II (9.5 linear feet) dates from 1972 to 2002. Regarding time periods when documents were generated, there is some overlap in Parts I and II.

Part I covers the years 1969 through 1996, and Part II documents the years 1978 through 2002. More records will be added when they are no longer in current use by the organization. Approximately half of the collection is comprised of files of the Officers, the Board of Trustees/Directors, and the Annual Meetings of the general membership. The administrative files are for the most part complete and span the organization's entire history, with some exceptions: the records of the Secretary cover only 1972 to 1978 and 1993 to 1996, and the years 1985 and 1986 are missing from the files of the Board of Directors/Trustees. The correspondence and memoranda are extensive, and reveal much about the workings of the Officers and the Board with regard to the purpose and functioning of the organization. The other half of the collection consists of the files of various committees, including those of the Project Grants Committee, whose members screen grant applications and recommend, semi-annually, the most promising ones to the Board of Trustees/Directors for funding. Records of VGIF sponsorship of the International Federation of University Women and of the Asian Women's Institute are particularly strong, and other project grants are also well documented.

Series Descriptions
(1969-2003)
9.5 linear ft.

This series contains general administrative records and those of the President, the Secretary, the Treasurer, the Board of Trustees/Directors, and the Annual Meetings of the general members. Material pertaining to general administration is arranged alphabetically, and other records are listed in the order given above. Types of material include correspondence and memoranda, agendas and minutes, reports, financial information, proxies and ballots, and brochures and newsletters. In keeping with the original order of the records, the President's files are arranged by topic, and each of these subseries contains correspondence, memoranda and reports pertaining to the topic at hand. Records of Annual Meetings consist mainly of agendas, minutes, and reports; however, because the officers and members of various committees often corresponded about the annual meetings, other documents pertaining to the meetings may also be found in the officers' records and in SERIES II. COMMITTEES. The Board of Trustees/Directors met annually in April from 1970 until sometime between 1984 and 1987, after which they met semi-annually in April and November. Records of the meetings of the Board are arranged chronologically.

(1970-2002)
8.5 linear ft.

This series consists of the records of the various committees formed as necessary to attend to specific VGIF business. Types of material include correspondence, memoranda, photographs, and reports. The committees are listed alphabetically, with the exception of the Project Grants Committee, which, due to the volume of material it generates, is listed last. Project Grants Committee material is comprised of project proposals submitted for possible funding, and is arranged alphabetically by continent and subsequently by country. Correspondence pertaining to a specific project is filed with that project; general correspondence and memoranda in which the project is mentioned along with other business may be found in the general correspondence of the Project Grants Committee. Researchers may also wish to cross-reference material in this series with the records of the Officers and the Board of Trustees/Directors in SERIES I. ADMINISTRATION.
