Series I: Administrative Records and Artifacts 1917-1995 bulk

Physical Description: 3 Boxes, 26 Folders

Scope and Contents

The East Palo Alto Women's Club Records document the history of the organization from their early formation as a "Mother’s Club" to become an official branch of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GWFC). Women's clubs across the United States influenced local, state, and national politics long before women were granted full voting rights nationally. The Palo Alto Women's Club records provide an interesting view of the activism of women in the South Bay during the formative years of the club and after. Typical organizational records of this kind, the collection includes information concerning the annual budgets, memberships and officer lists, the club charter, constitution and by-laws, as well as scrapbooks that document club events.


The administrative records are arranged chronologically and by subject.
