Archive of LWV Saratoga History
Former longtime president, Barbara Thomas, has organized and compiled the historical records of the League of Women Voters of Saratoga County, and our Board has donated the records to the M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections & Archives, University Libraries, University at Albany, State University of New York. The University at Albany already holds the archival records for our sister leagues from Albany, Rensselaer and Schenectady Counties.
The archival Box List includes records of our League from its founding in 1965 through 2010. These archives are now available to researchers and the public at the University of Albany's uptown campus, on the third floor of the Science Library, 1400 Washington Avenue, Albany, New York.
