Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The San José Woman's Club Records consists of administrative records and pressbooks documenting the club's activities from 1922 to 1993. The collection materials include ledgers, meeting minutes, a receipt book, scrapbooks, photographs, and correspondence.
The San José Woman's Club was formed on December 3, 1894, when a group of nine women gathered to discuss the possibility of forming a club devoted to women's issues. Membership grew steadily to 81 members by 1902, leading the Club to purchase and renovate their first club house in 1906. The club was incorporated as a non-profit in 1909, with meetings held every Saturday afternoon at 2:30 P.M.
