Established in 1929, the San Fernando Women's Club evolved from a number of civic,
literary, and social organizations, and was formed as a non-profit organization. The
first of these clubs was the Elective Study Club, founded in 1907. In 1926, this
organization merged with another group and became the San Fernando Woman's Club
(SFWC). In 1929, the new club merged with the San Fernando Ebell Club to become the San
Fernando Cosmos Club. In 1959, members voted to change the club's name back to
SFWC. Also in 1959, members of the San Fernando Junior Cosmos Club, founded in 1930,
voted to change their name to the San Fernando Junior Woman's Club.
