The Archives for Women in Medicine (AWM) is a project of the Joint Committee on the Status of Women and the Countway Library’s Center for the History of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. The AWM’s goal is to recognize outstanding medical leaders, and to document the social phenomena that brought large numbers of women to the forefront of medicine. The AWM’s objective is to actively acquire, process, preserve, provide access to, and publicize the papers of women physicians, researchers, and medical administrators. A list of collections in the AWM can be provided.
