    Administrative History

    The College Women's Club of Pasadena was organized in May 1921. Meetings were held at the Pasadena YWCA. As stated in the club's constitution, the purpose of the club is to "promote the education of women, to strengthen the fellowship of the college women of Pasadena, and to stimulate their continuous intellectual development."
    In 1923 the club formed a Scholarship Committee to give loans to local students wishing to attend college. In 1961 the structure of the organization changed with the formation of the Scholarship Foundation, which was incorporated as a separate non-profit entity. Since 1969 all awards have been fellowships or scholarships and loans are no longer granted.

    Scope and Content

    The College Women's Club of Pasadena Collection (1921-present) includes organizational papers, yearbooks, monthly bulletins, presidents' and treasurers' reports, annual reports, minutes, notes, correspondence and records of loans and scholarships awarded.
