Woodstock Business and Professional Women's Club Records, 1934-1980
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: A small collection, the Woodstock Business and Professional Women’s Club Records have limited research value.  The by-laws, minutes, correspondence, and annual reports are incomplete, covering only a few years between 1948 and 1979.  There are no records for the early years of the organization’s history.  Nevertheless, the newsletters, scrapbooks, and newspaper clippings reveal the nature of the programs and projects undertaken by the club since 1934.  The remaining materials contain a small amount of information on other area clubs, the Illinois Federation of B.P.W. clubs, and the National B.P.W. Club organization.
