[Business & Professional Women's Clubs]

Two, 8 x 10 1/2, scrapbooks of newspaper clippings about the Business & Professional Women's Clubs, one from the Arkansas Gazette and the other from the Arkansas Democrat for the years 1935 and 1936. The articles cover all aspects of this national women's organization: board elections, the speakers at various conventions, district conferences, the organization of safety councils, social meetings, the conducting of surveys to find the facts which enabled clubs (as sound thinking women) to participate intelligently in the vital task of helping to rebuild the nation shaken by the years of depression. Other articles discuss feminist voting power, an invitation by UVA for the BPWC to participate in the annual Institute of Public Affairs (this was the first time in its history that UVA invited a national women's organization), information about specific Presidents and Board Members of the clubs, their political agenda, and much more. Membership in the Business & Professional Women's Clubs provided opportunity for a wide acquaintance with women in all types of professions and with women who are outstanding in their own particular field in the United States. It gave an introduction to nearly 55,000 women in all parts of the U.S. and in a number of foreign countries. The nature and importance of membership in the Business & Professional Women's Clubs were chiefly in the scope of its programs passed and in the wide opportunity the membership provided women of many business fields to associate to a mutual advantage. $125.
