Historical Note

The Faculty Women's Club (FWC) originated as a political action group at Los Angeles Normal School, focused on gathering support for the creation of a four-year college in Southern California. When the Los Angeles State Normal School became the Southern Branch of the University of California in 1919, the group's initial political objective was met.
Subsequently, the FWC met to consider the club's future. By the spring of 1920 the first constitution and purpose of the FWC of the Southern Branch of the University of California had been drafted. The Club's purpose became the promotion of good fellowship for UCLA women faculty, faculty wives, women staff, and wives of staff who are directly connected with the academic aspects of the University. FWC also sought to promote educational and social activities and to provide educational scholarships for UCLA students.
