The organization credits its formation to the inspired leadership of Mrs. Mary Belle Powell.

Sponsorship of newsletters, presentations and letter writing campaigns characterized the Association's activities. This collection contains one scrapbook and one folder compiled by Alyce J. McWilliams, former President of the Beaumont Chapter of the Association of Retired Teachers. Newspaper clippings reveal that retirement pensions and medical care were the major issues.
