Women’s history books donated by AAUW

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 - Updated: 4:19 PM

JOHNSTOWN -- In honor of Women’s History Month, the Amsterdam-Gloversville-Johnstown branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) reached to area libraries to donate copies of the book "Remarkable Women in New York State History".

Libraries in Canajoharie, Fort Plain, St. Johnsville, Amsterdam, Sharon Springs, Johnstown, Gloversville, Fonda and Northville received copies of the book.

The book -- produced as an NYS AAUW project, funded by the Syracuse branch -- is a compilation of biographies submitted by members from across New York State. The local AAUW branch contributions to the book include biographies of Rose Knox and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, compiled by Virginia Mazur, of Gloversville and Amelia Bloomer, submitted by Elizabeth Russo, of Johnstown. 

The donated books were purchased with donations from AAUW branch members Sandra Maceyka and Linda Hammond. Proceeds from the sale of the donated books went to the AAUW Educational Opportunities Fund, which provides scholarships, fellowships and grants nationwide to empower women and girls though education, advocacy and research.

AAUW members Ginni Mazur, Liz Russo, Sandy Lane, Ella Ryder, Linda Hammond and Bonnie Van Wie delivered the books.
