HISTORY

The Harvard Annex Alumnae Association was established in 1887 and renamed the Radcliffe College Alumnae Association in 1897. It was administered by a president, a board of managers and an executive secretary (who was first appointed in 1920) and included representatives who served on the Board of Trustees of Radcliffe College. Since 1908 the Association has published an alumnae directory and since 1916 The Radcliffe Quarterly. The Association has also been involved in other activities such as fundraising and special programs; overseeing the Radcliffe clubs; and coordinating annual class reunions. Three annual awards are given by the Association: the Founders Award, the Alumnae Recognition Award and the Graduate Medal. Alumnae representatives meet every two years at the Alumnae Council (formerly the Conference of Radcliffe Representatives) held at Radcliffe.
