Scope and Content of the Papers

Correspondence, minutes, agendas, reports, printed materials, photographs and artifacts make up the papers of Alice C. Young. The collection is organized into two series. Series I: Georgia State University Professional papers includes reading files; materials relating to the many professional, GSU-related, and community organizations to which Young belonged; and records about her interests on campus, including returning and non-traditional students, leadership and management. Finally, the series contains a number of widely assorted subject files. Series II: Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta Records reflects Young's long-time commitment to her church.

Alice C. Young was born in 1923 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She graduated from Georgia State University in 1969 with a B.A. in sociology.
