Name of creator
The Signus Club of Vancouver was formed in 1936 as a non denominational service club for young women. Under the leadership of Mrs. William Holland, the organization took as its object "the development of character through study, personal contacts and service to humanity." The club has organized many fundraising and social activities and maintained a varied community service program. Initially, the club's membership donated cash and supplies to a variety of causes, but gradually came to concentrate on cerebral palsy research and treatment. In support of this cause, club members offered an annual prize to a UBC medical student, and supported the work of the G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of minutes, annual reports, financial records, newsletters (the "Signus Flier"), correspondence, scrapbooks, membership and executive lists, clippings and photographs. The records are organized into eight series and listed alphabetically by series title.
