Description
The Assistance League of Los Angeles is a female-driven community service organization dedicated to improving the lives of impoverished children in the Los Angeles area. The organization that eventually became the Assistance League of Los Angeles was formed in the late 1890s, when Anne Banning and Ada Edwards Laughlin, two wealthy Los Angeles socialites, began organizing charitable projects with other local prominent women using the moniker "Assistance League." The Assistance League of Los Angeles Institutional Archives span from 1907-2014 and include bussiness records, meeting notes, photographs, newspaper clippings, correspondence, and membership lists for the auxiliary groups of the Assistance League of Los Angeles.
