Student conferences, 1913-1926
Scope and Contents
Documents concerning conferences of YWCA and YMCA student associations in the Middle Atlantic region. Conferences meet in Eagles Mere, Pennsylvania to unite under common purposes and discuss the issues facing college students and international issues and the role of religion in the lives of the college student. Minutes of planning meetings and pre-conference materials sent to delegates concern the selection of discussion topics, the structure of the conference and arranging for speakers and discussion sessions. Conference bulletins and proceedings report on the conference sessions and discussion groups. Early conferences are for YWCA of the U.S.A. only and joint YWCA-YMCA conferences begin after 1922.
