Background
The Reseda Woman's Club was formed in 1918 when a group of nineteen women gathered at Marian Elementary School to organize the Mother's Club of Marian. Mrs. Martha McClure, principal of the school and club initiator, was elected the first president. In 1922 the town of Marian was renamed Reseda, at which time the club changed its name to the Reseda Woman's Club. The society was incorporated into the California Federation of Women's Clubs (CFWC) in January 1923, and became one of 33 members of the Sierra-Cahuenga District, affiliated with CFWC. Founded in 1950, the Reseda Junior Woman's Club, for young women aged 18-35 residing in Reseda and vicinity, was dissolved in 1970.
