Historical Note

The first Pan American Round Table was founded by Florence Terry Griswold in 1916 in San Antonio, Texas, to "cement a close and everlasting friendship with the women of the Western Hemisphere." In 1944, all Tables met in Mexico City and established the Alliance of Pan American Round Tables. The Alliance is a civil society organization registered at the Organization of American States (OAS) since 2001.

Geographic Distribution: In 1958, the Director General recommended to the assembly of the VI Convention to amend the Constitution and Bylaws of the Alliance to allow for the geographical division of the American Republics into six areas (i.e. six zones) and to elect an associate director every two years for each zone. Circa 1960, the Alliance began having Zones; originally, there were three Associate Directors but by 1962, there were seven Zone directors plus an Assistant Director General.

Alliance Archives: During the 1950s-1970s, the archive of the Alliance of PART had a semi-permanent home in Mexico City before coming to the Benson Latin American Collection. On August 17, 1977, the Board of Directors discussed the possibility of finding a new home for the Alliance archives because they had to move them from its then present location (the house of a Mexico City PART member). The Board was unable to make a decision because the Alliance statutes designated the Mexico City PART as the custodian of the archives and the issue was tabled at that meeting. Following parliamentarian procedures, the Pan American Round Table of Mexico City submitted a proposal to amend the Constitution and Bylaws of the Alliance to move the archives from Mexico City. The proposal was presented and accepted by the assembly at the Alliance convention held in Fort Worth, Texas, October 1978.

The 1979 Alliance Constitution reads: "The permanent archives of the Alliance shall be maintained in the city of Austin, Texas, U.S.A. This Table shall be responsible for their care and maintenance (Approved in Fort Worth, Texas, 1978)."
