Name of creator
The University Women's Club of Vancouver was founded in 1907 by Evelyn Farris and eight other Vancouver University women who wished to "stimulate intellectual activity; promote interest in public affairs and to afford an opportunity for the expression of united opinion; and to facilitate social intercourse and cooperation among university women". The University Women's Club has been actively involved in promoting women's and children's rights and social issues. It has been a recognized voice in community affairs as well as funding scholarships and bursaries.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of minutes, annual reports, financial statements, bulletins and newsletters, Canadian Federation of University Women Triennial Conference material and a small amount of memorabilia. Fonds also includes photographs depicting interior and exterior views of Hycroft, the club's headquarters, as well as other images of prominent buildings and streets in downtown Vancouver.
