The NYJL Through the Years

In 1985, NYJL volunteer Emma Mai Ewing undertook the task of putting the New York Junior League’s then 88 year history into words. In her book, Through the Years, she takes much of what she had written for a piece in Town & Country in 1951, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the New York Junior League, but expands on the accounts with deeper information and historical clarity.
