Abstract

The Woman's Club (University of Kentucky) records document all aspects of the organization. Materials include correspondence, meeting minutes, annual reports, photographs, financial materials, scrapbooks, yearbooks, and clippings, 1909-2005.

Biography/History

The University of Kentucky Woman's Club was founded in 1909 by a handful of charter members as a social group for wives of university professors. The club provided cultural entertainment and coordinated service work for its members. Over time the club expanded both its membership and its scope. Woman's Club members were active in campus life, organizing welcome events for new faculty members, sponsoring workshops and lectures, raising funds for various scholarship and student loan programs, and providing assistance to international students. The club also provided a variety of entertainment and enrichment activities for its members, including plays, concerts, fashion shows, luncheons, dinner dances, reading groups, and history tours. Today the Woman's Club has over 300 members and continues to provide a full calendar of activities for its members while also serving the university community.

Scope and Content

The Woman's Club (University of Kentucky) records document all aspects of the organization. Materials include correspondence, meeting minutes, annual reports, photographs, financial materials, scrapbooks, yearbooks, and clippings. Materials date from the club's founding in 1909 through 2005. The collection also includes the records of the Dames Club, an organization of student wives that was sponsored by the Woman's Club. Dames Club records include newsletters, minutes, correspondence, annual reports, financial materials, member lists, photographs, and scrapbooks, and date from 1945 through 1975.

The club records include information on the club's service work for the university community, including student welfare projects, scholarship programs and fundraising activities (such as cookbook sales), and annual receptions for newcomers to the university. The records also document the various cultural activities sponsored by the club, including workshops, lectures, plays, and concerts. The collection includes records of interest groups within the club, such as the book, garden, and antiques groups. Social and entertainment activities of the club, such as luncheons, dinner dances, fashion shows, and history tours, are also documented.

Prominent club members represented in the collection include Frances Jewell McVey, Dean of Women at UK from 1921-1923 and wife of President Frank McVey; and Chloe Gifford, Director of Community Services at UK and President of the General Federation of Women's Clubs from 1958-1960. Chloe Gifford's tenure as President of the GFWC is thoroughly documented in the Woman's Club press books from that period. Also of interest are records documenting the charitable work of the Woman's Club during the two World Wars. The collection includes a 70th anniversary club history, a 90th anniversary club history, and a series of articles in the 1999-2000 club year newsletters chronicling the club's history by decade; these materials, along with the club president's annual reports, provide an overview of the club's activities throughout its history. Please see the scope note for each series for additional information.

The Press books subseries consists of albums of clippings compiled by the Woman's Club historian. The historian clipped all references to Woman's Club members and activities that appeared in local papers (typically the Lexington Leader , Kentucky Kernel , and university staff bulletin), keeping track of the total number of inches of newsprint that were published. The press book was then entered into a competition against other members of the Kentucky Federation of Women's Clubs (KFWC). Several of the press books include prize ribbons won in this competition. Although the Woman's Club withdrew from the KFWC in December 1966 (effective end of 1966-1967 club year), press books were still created through 1973. Press books were disbound for preservation purposes, interleaved where newsprint was present, and foldered in original order.
