Description
The Tarzana Woman’s Club was initially formed as the Runnymede Women’s Club in 1915, an auxiliary to the local men’s social organization, the Runnymede Poultry and Berry Association. The women’s association disbanded in 1923, but twelve former members re-formed as a separate organization shortly thereafter. In 1927, the club was renamed the Tarzana Woman's Club. It dissolved in 2001, as membership continued to decline. The collection consists primarily of the club's budgets and charitable gifts. Also included are approximately three years of meeting minutes in longhand, membership handbooks, and newsletters.
