Polish and American World War Veterans Auxiliary

The archives staff recently completed the processing of the records of the Polish and American World War Veterans Association Auxiliary, New Bedford post, dated 1938 to 2008. These records were donated as part of the effort to collect the history of member organizations  of the New Bedford Council of Women’s Organizations. The Veterans Association was formed by veterans returning from World War I; at about the same time another organization was formed by those veterans who had volunteered for the United States service with the Polish Army. In 1923 the two associations combined, and in 1936 the Ladies Auxiliary formed. The collection includes scrapbooks, programs from charity balls and various ceremonies and dedications, photographs, and a uniform.  For further information, contact the archives at 508-999-8686 or email jfarrar@umassd.edu.
