Welcome to the Somerset Hills Branch of AAUW

AAUW is the oldest women’s organization in the USA. Our mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research. We have general meetings and various interest groups. Our major fundraiser is our annual used book sale.

All members, even new ones, are encouraged to participate as board members, group chairs, convention attendees, and book sale workers, in order to get the most out of the AAUW experience.

Somerset Hills AAUW Program – February, 2015

Lincoln at the Dawn of the Photographic Era
 
Lincoln was not the first president to be photographed (he was the eleventh), however, he was our first true “media” president.  What was it that made Abraham Lincoln, self-proclaimed as “homely”, such a popular subject for photographers?  New Jersey photojournalist Jim DelGiudice will look at images of the man, his times, and the evolution of press photography, its place in the industrial revolution, and its evolution into today’s internet and celebrity photography.
 
Join us for an interesting talk on Tuesday, February 10th starting at 7:00pm at the Bernards Township Library. Prior to the program, light refreshments will be served starting at 6:30pm. The meeting is free and open to the public.
