President's records, 1931-1955, 1960-1964

 Series — Multiple Containers
Identifier: MSP 146, Series 3

Scope and Contents

The president’s records include membership and treasury information, meeting minutes, and a diverse assortment of correspondence and ephemera. The records for 1931-1932 and 1932-1933 are relatively formal and focus primarily on membership and treasury records and meeting minutes. Of note in these years is correspondence between the Dames and the University acknowledging their contributions to the Dean Carolyn Shoemaker Scholarship Fund, copies of the newsletters that the Dames produced while they held the chairmanship of the National Dames Association, and the reasons for their separation from the undergraduate dames. Later years more closely resemble a scrapbook than official records, and they contain a vast assortment of correspondence and ephemera relating to the club’s contributions and activities. After a five year gap in the records, they resume a more formal style (1960-1964); these records note the existence of a club scrapbook, but it was not included with the collection. Also noted in 1964 is the reunification of the undergraduate and graduate sections of the Dames.
