About the author
Pauline Allen Chandler was born in Georgia during the mid-thirties--a time when segregation and racism was rampant in our country. She grew up in a typical African-American family of that era. She was taught to be God-fearing, hard working and above all the importance of education and service to others. She carried those principles with her throughout her life--from her elementary and high school years to college and even into motherhood. Her son and only child, Jamal, was a graduate of the famous Morehouse College which made her proud and brought her much joy in his accomplishments. Therefore, it was more than devastating when her son died an untimely death at the age of twenty-six. Nonetheless, Chandler, who had grown up being God-fearing, relied on those strong religious beliefs as well as the support she received from St. Alban's Episcopal Church of Edison, New Jersey where she served as Lay Eucharistic Minister to survive such a great loss. Chandler was accomplished in the field of Health Administration where her degree in Health Information Administration allowed her to work as Director of Medical Records and Quality Assurance at hospitals throughout New Jersey and New York. However, it was in 1988, when she became a member of the National Association of University Women (NAUW), Plainfield-Brunswick Branch, that she found her opportunity to serve and to pay forward those who had helped her in her pursuit of higher education. As a member of the NAUW, Chandler gave generously of her time, talent and treasure at every level. When the concept of compiling a pictorial history of over 100 years of services provided by the NAUW, Chandler readily accepted the challenge to serve as National Historian (2012-2014) and worked diligently with three other members, to make this history book a reality. She became enmeshed in outlining the sisterhood, service and leadership of thousands of African American women a reality. Unfortunately, Chandler did not live to see the book actually published in this hardback edition. Yet, it is because of her leadership and determination that you have the opportunity to share in what is an outstanding account of like-minded women working together
