Collection Scope and Content Note

The collection provides an incomplete record of the organization through meeting minutes, records of the treasurers and presidents, meeting programs, photographs of members and their children, and miscellaneous materials.

A major strength is the complete run of the Recording Secretary’s Books, 1932-1990, the Treasurer’s Record and Report Books, 1934-1977, and the Scrapbooks, 1953, 1999 (4 volumes) and Photograph Albums, 1897, 1953 (3 volumes). These volumes document the history, members, and interests of the organization.

Of special interest is the Baby Spoons Record Book, September 1962-October 1964, which documents the organization’s ongoing tradition of giving a spoon to each member who was also the mother of a new infant. The babies and mothers are described in interesting detail in the book.

The 50th Anniversary of the organization is documented in Notes and a Program, 1978. (The 75th Anniversary materials are found in the Faculty Women Collection.)
