Records of the Manzanita Club of San Jose, founded in 1884, including yearbooks and minute books.
The Manzanita Club was one of a number of women's clubs founded in San Jose and Santa Clara County in the late 19th century, part of the national woman's club movement. Its aim was "the intellectual improvement of its members." The Constitution of 1913 specified a maximum of 25 members, to be endorsed and approved by a secret committee of three. The group was to meet at the homes of the members every alternate Monday.
