Two volumes of minutes of the meetings of the San Jose Music Study Club for 1921 to 1927. Includes membership lists and several programs.
Background
According to an article in the San Jose Mercury News, published April 12, 2010, the San Jose Music Study Club was founded in 1918 by a group of residents who included a singer, choir director and instrumentalists. “It was formed for women to learn more about all aspects of classical music and to help the community learn more about good music,” according to a member quoted in the article. The club originally required that two-thirds of its members be performing musicians, but later relaxed that rule.
