Description“University City and the American Woman’s League” was published by the Lewis Publishing Company. It is undated, but was probably printed in March 1908. It was intended to be a promotional piece for University City, featuring Lewis’ “University City Plan” for development in the recently incorporated city, as well as for the American Woman's League with its broad range of benefits. Original plans for the League included not only the correspondence school and a postal library, but also a retreat for indigent members, an orphanage, and a loan and relief fund. An exchange program, under the supervision of the People’s University, was intended to provide members with an outlet for fancywork and other products that they made in their homes. (Note: Pages 17 and 18 are missing)
