Following World War I and prior to the incorporation of the Society of Women Engineers in 1950, a small group of women created the American Society of Women Engineers and Architects, a professional network to support working women engineers and counsel young women interested in pursuing engineering as a profession.

The American Society of Women Engineers and Architects Collection includes correspondence related to early members Lou Alta Melton and Hilda Counts' 1919 female engineering college enrollment survey; newsletter and correspondence of the American Society of Women Engineers and Architects; correspondence to and from member Elsie Eaves; and a copy of Alice Goff's 1946 publication, Women Can Be Engineers.
