University Women's Club, 1939-2015 | Southern Illinois University Special Collections Research Center
The University Women's Club Records document the groups from 1939-2012. The collection consists of various clippings dated back to the very beginnings of the club. The annual reports are from different officers such as the President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. The reports address the duties of the individual officer or the club, provide an overview of activities and progress for that year, and suggest new ideas for next year. There are minutes from all of the meetings in 1939 to 1989 with a few overlaps or gaps in between. There are also files containing the directories of members from 1959 to 2011. Some documented events include Women's Day, Luncheons, Calendars, and Fashion Shows.
Another portion of the collection is comprised of scrapbooks. The scrapbooks contain all of the achievements and activities of the Women's Club. The scrapbooks span from 1957 to 2012 with few gaps in between. The scrapbooks contain pictures and articles pertaining to annual coffees, scholarship recipients, annual lunches, interest groups, and many other aspects of the club.
