The Medical Faculty Wives at the University of California, Los Angeles, began with an informal luncheon in 1949 to discuss
the desirability of such an organization as a benefit to the medical school (founded in 1945). Originating members included
Mrs. John Lawrence, Mrs. Charles Carpenter, Mrs. Norman Nelson, and Mrs. Stafford Warren (chairwoman). As stated in the Constitution
of the Medical Faculty Wives, the organization sought to "encourage wider acquaintance among the members and the sharing of
common interest in the development of the School of Medicine and Hospital." Activities of the group included regular meetings,
the organization of charity events, and operation of a patient library.
