Biographical history

In 1941, a group of women, concerned about the seeming apathy of women in public affairs, formed the Vancouver Women's School for Citizenship. The founders included Laura Jamieson, Evelyn LeSueur, Helena Gutteridge and others. The aim of the School was to better inform women of the problems and duties of citizenship. The School taught Parliamentary Procedure and public speaking, presented guest lecturers, arranged field trips, and held book review meetings. The School was disbanded in 1958, but book review activities continued under the name of the Vancouver Book Review Club.
