Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Encino Woman's Club Collection documents club administration, activities, philanthropic endeavors, and the acquisition and management of their clubhouse. It details membership and committee work through business and executive meeting agendas, minutes, and attendance records. Fundraising events and local field trips are documented by press clippings, photographs, scrapbooks, club bulletins, yearbooks, and records assembled by the club Historian. These materials provide insight into San Fernando Valley cultural life through member events and charity fundraisers, as well as women's twentieth century social networks in the Los Angeles region.
The Encino Woman's Club was founded in 1927 by a small group of local women that met regularly for a monthly potluck and game of cards. The early years of the Club were spent on leisure activities, establishing their club room, and charitable activities that included sewing for the Pacific Home and the McKinley Home for Boys.
