Alliance of Pan American Round Tables
Records of the Alianza de Mesas Redondas Panamericanas (AMRP, Alliance of Pan American Round Tables) will be on display in the main reading room of the Benson Latin American Collection until May 2017. AMRP is a nonprofit women's organization with member Tables at the local, state, and international levels.
Florence Terry Griswold founded the first Pan American Round Table in 1916 in San Antonio, Texas, to "cement a close and everlasting friendship with the women of the Western Hemisphere." In 1944, all existing Tables met in Mexico City and established the Alliance of Pan American Round Tables.
The materials include director-general office records, meeting minutes, correspondence, convention documentation, photographs, artifacts, and other material documenting the international women's organization.
