Scope and Content

The records of the Idaho Third District Federation of Women's Clubs span the years 1946 to 1986 with the bulk of the material covering the years 1975 to 1986. The material includes the constitution and bylaws, the secretary's correspondence and financial files, minutes of state and district conventions, the treasurer's record books and check registers, convention registration records and programs, and five scrapbooks, four of which contain newspaper clippings, newsletters, programs, photographs, and correspondence, and one which contains yearbooks from all member clubs.


Administrative/Biographical History

The Idaho Third District Federation of Women's Clubs was organized in 1902. Its object was to unite all women's clubs in the third district, an area from Lewiston north to the Canadian border, for mutual federation. Membership was open to any club which was not a partisan, political, or secret organization. All clubs also had to belong to the Idaho Federation of Women's Clubs and the General Federation of Women's Clubs. By 1986 the membership had dwindled to seven clubs located in Moscow, Lewiston, Coeur d'Alene, and Sandpoint; by contrast, there were 18 clubs in 1965. Since none of the members was willing to hold an office the delegates at the 1986 district convention voted to dissolve the organization and have the member clubs absorbed by the adjacent second district.
