Summary The collection documents the San Fernando Women's Club's activities, which largely pertained to drama, literature, and music. Through minutes of club meetings name changes and mergers are clearly documented, and by-laws indicate each new club's goals. The collection includes newspaper clippings, minutes, a scrapbook, reports of club officers, membership lists, yearbooks, and guest books. Financial records and some resolutions are also found in the collection.
Note Established in 1929, the San Fernando Women's Club evolved from a number of civic, literary, and social organizations, and was formed as a non-profit organization. The first of these clubs was the Elective Study Club, founded i n1907. In 1926 it merged with another group and became the San Fernando Woman's Club (SFWC). In 1929, the new club merged with the San Fernando Ebell Club to become the San Fernando Cosmos Club. In 1959, members voted to change the club's name back to SFWC. Also in 1959, members of the San Fernando Junior Cosmos Club, founded in 1930, voted to change their name to the San Fernando Junior Woman's Club.
