Arrangement and Description

The records are organized in two series: Administrative and Special Projects. With two exceptions, the folders retain the original headings. General Information, 1970-1974, became Executive Board Agendas, correspondence and other material. Miscellaneous files and clippings, receipt books, fashion show programs (1971-1976) became Fashion Show, 1967-1976. The new titles are more descriptive of the actual content of the files.

Scope and Content

The records of the Faculty Women's Club span the years 1941-1976. These records include administrative and financial material such as minutes, treasurer's reports, dues books and membership lists. The information for special projects is not as comprehensive as the information for administrative matters. There is some material on the service projects, the Commencement Tea, the Senior Reception and the Fashion Show.


Administrative/Biographical History

The Faculty Women's Club, founded in 1913, was a social organization founded "to promote sociability among its members and further the interests of the University." The women included faculty and wives of faculty members at the University of Idaho. From 1941-1976 meetings were held quarterly. In addition to regular meetings, special interest groups met once or twice a month. As part of its association with the Idaho Federation of Women's Clubs, the Faculty Women's Club sponsored an auxiliary organization for students wives (the Dames Club) as well as several annual public service projects. The club also hosted the annual Senior Reception for graduating seniors and their parents. Until 1965, the women's club served the annual Commencement Tea. The biggest event of the social year was the Spring Fashion Show.
