A group of girls who studied at Miss Ireland's School at 9 Louisburg Square, Boston, formed themselves into a club named ERIN-GO-BRAGH (Ireland for ever) in 1889. They met frequently for lunch for many years thereafter. In 1914 a fund was begun which later was presented to Radcliffe College as the Catherine Innes Ireland Travelling Scholarship, 1927.


The records consist of the minutes of the annual meeting, 1915-1952 (1 v.), letters from various members of the club, 1914-1953, letters, etc. re the Catherine Innes Ireland Fund, 1914-1953, material about Emily Greene Balch, Alice Bache Gould, and several early photographs of the group.
