The Alice Paul Institute, a not-for-profit corporation based at Paulsdale in Mount Laurel, NJ, was established in 1984 as the Alice Paul Centennial Foundation. This founding group of dedicated volunteers kept Alice Paul’s papers intact after her death by purchasing them at auction and donating them to the Smithsonian Institution and Radcliffe College. They then took on the monumental challenge of buying and preserving Paulsdale, Alice Paul's birthplace. The API's principal mission is to increase public awareness of the life and work of Alice Paul (1885-1977), woman suffrage leader and author of the Equal Rights Amendment. The organization also promotes gender equality through programs for the education, development, and empowerment of young women leaders.
