Entre Nous Records 1908-1990
Name of creator
A group of women who had belonged to literary societies at Grinnell College organized Entre Nous in 1908. Originally, papers presented at meetings focused on a central theme, such as Italian cities, Iowa history, or modern sociological problems. Since about 1926 members have presented book reviews at the meetings. Membership is loosely balanced between town- and college-related women.
