Scope and Content of the Papers

Correspondence, minutes, agendas, reports, printed materials, photographs and artifacts make up the papers of Alice C. Young. The collection is organized into two series. Series I: Georgia State University Professional papers includes reading files; materials relating to the many professional, GSU-related, and community organizations to which Young belonged; and records about her interests on campus, including returning and non-traditional students, leadership and management. Finally, the series contains a number of widely assorted subject files. Series II: Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta Records reflects Young's long-time commitment to her church.

Artifacts have been separated and largely include pinback buttons and name tags from professional conferences.


Biography of Alice C. Young

Alice C. Young was born in 1923 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She graduated from Georgia State University in 1969 with a B.A. in sociology. After a few years of outside part-time employment, Young returned to the university, and served fom 1973 until 1989 as Assistant Dean for Student Services and Director of the Student Center. In 1978 she received an M.A. in education administration from Georgia State University. She was married to Robert Young and later to Henry Malone.

Besides her administrative work for the university, she belonged to several professional organizations from the mid-1970s through the mid-1980s.
