The ASUVCW Collection consists of encampment proceedings (1933-40), constitutions and by-laws, rituals and other assorted materials (1918-43). The Collection also contains general orders from both the national headquarters (1930-42) and the state of Illinois Department headquarters (1929-43). This collection arrived as a component part of the Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW). Because of the size of the SUVCW collection, as well as recognition of the independence of the Auxiliary, the original box of SUVCW materials was divided into the SUVCW and the ASUVCW Collections.
