Name of creator
The Vancouver Business and Professional Women's Club was founded in 1922 to promote the interests of self-supporting Vancouver women. One of the club's early projects was the formation of a revolving Loan Fund to help young women financially unable to complete their education and to help finance courses for mature women wishing to re-enter business or professional life. The club also carried out various educational, social and charitable activities. It was affiliated with regional and national organizations.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of minute books, (1922-1930, 1946-1989); scrapbooks and publications; miscellaneous correspondence; Alberta Peters' historical notes, (1977); and a 1991 pamphlet.
Immediate source of acquisition
Records donated by Agnes Milne in 1982, Bunny Parton in 1991 and Edna Bird Dollray in 1994.
