Collection Description & Creator Information


The Margaret Snyder Papers document her involvement with organizations working with African women, including the Kenya and East African Women's Seminars, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, the African Training and Research Center for Women, the United Nations Development Fund for Women, and the Sirleaf Market Women's Fund. These organizations' development projects often focused on poor and rural women and included programs in Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Pacific. Some notable projects include the World Assembly of Youth, International Women's Year, the International Women's Decade, Women and Food Cycle Technologies Project, and the Green Belt Movement.

The papers contain correspondence, speeches, photographs, reports, interviews, publications, agendas and meeting minutes, United Nations documents, scrapbooks, conference and seminar papers, financial information, project proposals, brochures, and other material documenting training workshops, research, and fund raising activities.

No materials were separated from the 2014 donation or the 2018 donation. No information about appraisal is available for other donations.
