Since 1898, the group has had a representative on the Board of Trustees. In 1899 the alumnae set up the Student Loan Committee which has provided tuition funds to worthy candidates in the form of loans and scholarships. In the late 1920's the AABC raised funds for the purchase of Barnard Camp, a country retreat which operated from that time until as late as 1974. The AABC has published a magazine since 1912. Originally called Barnard College Alumnae Bulletin, it is currently called Barnard Alumnae Magazine and is published quarterly. Issues of the magazine comprise collection BC 11.8.
