Description
The San Fernando Women's Club was formed as a non-profit organization in 1929. The club evolved from a number of civic, literary, and social organizations. The colleciton consists of organizational records which document the objectives of the group and describe its activities, which largely pertained to drama, literature, and music.
Background
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.
