Administrative History

The Indiana Birth Control League was formed on March 4, 1932 in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was affiliated with the American Birth Control League, Inc.

In 1934, the Indiana Birth Control League reorganized and became known as the Maternal Health League of Indiana. In 1942, the American Birth Control League became Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the Indiana league became an affiliate of that federation.
