Broun, Little, and Teague Women of Auburn Endowed Fund
The Auburn Alumni Association Board of Directors has approved the establishment of the
Auburn Alumni Association Broun, Little, and Teague Women of Auburn Endowed Fund for Excellence to support the “Women of Auburn” strategic initiatives.
This Fund for Excellence is established by the Auburn Alumni Association to honor the first three women to attend Auburn University enrolling in 1892.
Katherine Broun – Katherine C. Broun (1873-1952) was the daughter of Auburn University President William L Broun, who held the position from 1882-1902. In order to be admitted as an inaugural female student, Broun took tests in English, Latin, history, and mathematics. She was most notably Auburn’s first graduate student after receiving her bachelor’s degree in 1894.
Willie Little – Willie Gertrude Little (1873-1949) was the daughter of Auburn’s mayor and one of the first women to attend Auburn University in 1892. She graduated two years later with a bachelor’s degree and honors. Little has a hall in the Upper Quad named in her honor.
Margaret Teague – Margaret Kate Teague (1873-1960) moved from Arkansas to Auburn after her mother’s death. Along with Broun and Little, Teague was admitted to the university and graduated with honors. Teague Hall in the Upper Quad is named in her honor.
