Biographical/Historical Note
The Women's City Club was formed in 1911 and, at its peak in 1925, had more than 2,000 members. It played a vital role in the city's campaigns for a city manager charter, a central library, smoke abatement, a drive for pasteurized milk, and many other civic reforms. Its successive clubhouses also provided convenient headquarters for many women's groups and helped to urbanize the women of Rochester.

Scope and Content
These papers are concerned primarily with the club from the time of its disbandment in the fall of 1930 to the final disposition of its property in 1935. Included in the collection are business letters, bills and statements, treasurer's reports, bank statements and cancelled checks, four bank books, a check book, and a financial ledger which includes a list of the members of the club.

Immediate Source of Acquisition
Presented to the University of Rochester Library by May Bragdon, about 1950.Access
