Biographical / Historical Notes
In 1930, after a joint goodwill tour by women’s organizations in America and Cuba, the Pan American League International was formed for the purpose of promoting friendship across the borders of the American continents. The Pan American League of San Diego was non-political, non-sectarian, and non-commercial, and its purpose (as stated in its Articles of Incorporation) was “the promotion of friendship and better understanding through education and cultural channels and activities between the peoples of the United States and the other Pan American Nations.” In 1936, following her return from Washington D.C. where she had become interested in Pan-American affairs, Mrs. Mary B. Steyle organized a branch of the League in San Diego. Toward this end, the San Diego branch sponsored several events and helped many Latin-American students through its scholarship program.
Scope and Content
This collection contains materials related to the Pan American League of San Diego and its administrative processes from founding in 1936 through 1981.

Much of the collection is fragmented, but most of the important records (minutes, financial records, scholarship program records, yearbooks, and historian’s scrapbooks) are quite complete in their chronological scope. Also included are materials related to Pan American Juniors, a subsidiary organization.
