General Vertical Files and UNMA Vertical Files

Over the years the Center for Southwest Research has kept some folders with newspaper clippings, research notes and articles related to women in New Mexico. There are two folder sets - one for general broader New Mexico history and one for University history topics.

For the broader New Mexico ones, there is a computer file of the folder headings on the Reference computer in the Anderson Reading Room, of the Center for Southwest Research. The list is also online

The UNMA Vertical Files are also online. 

You can request the folders at the CSWR Anderson Reading Room.
