Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Women's Board of the San Francisco Museum of Art was formed in December 1934, just before the 1935 opening of the Museum. Its purpose was to advise the Board of Trustees, raise money, organize and administer social functions, and assist with educational programs. The Women's Board Records document the activities, special projects, and internal administration of the Women's Board and its auxiliaries through correspondence, financial records, press releases and announcements, newspaper clippings, scrapbooks, meeting minutes, and other manuscript materials. The collection spans the group's forty-one year history (1934-1975), but the bulk of the records date from 1950-1972.
24 linear feet (14 cartons, 1 oversize box, 1 card file box, 1 tube, 30 scrapbooks)
