Historical Note

Founded in 1915, Southern Methodist University Woman’s Club has been in existence since the opening of the university. At the time, there was no way for the faculty members’ wives to become acquainted with each other. In the fall of 1915, Julia Morrison, wife of J. Ray Morrison, Lucy G. Campbell Kern, wife of Paul.B. Kern, and May Payne McIntosh, wife of John S. McIntosh, along with sixteen other women, created The Faculty Wives Club.

The next year, membership was broadened to include female faculty and executive heads. The Faculty Wives Club then became the University Woman’s Club of Southern Methodist University. The club’s name changed again in 1968 to its current name: the Southern Methodist University Woman’s Club.

The SMU Woman’s Club is a social club, in which women congregate to discuss current events, produce plays, and volunteer for the university community in the spirit of friendship.
