Historical Note

The Woman's Club of Beaumont began in 1895, when Mrs. Hal W. (Sarah) Greer, not content to rear her children in a community devoid of all avenues of cultural pursuits, decided to do something about it. She invited four friends, Miss Hattie Farrand, Miss Mary Lamb, Mrs. T. A. Lamb, and Mrs. E. C. Wiess, to form a club with her. Each of these first five members invited one other friend to join, and then the ten members each invited one more friend, until the group numbered twenty, all that a home could comfortably host.

According to a 1911 newspaper article, the original "purpose of the organization was self-culture, mutual improvement, and pleasure."

Greer, in a presentation to the club on its fortieth anniversary, said that the club was initially named the Reading Club, and it met once a week to read articles from several cultural magazines. The name was soon changed to the Woman's Reading Club of Beaumont.

The club met with early and lasting success because of its willingness to affiliate with other organizations. The club joined the State Federation of Woman's Clubs in 1899, the General Federation of Woman's Clubs in 1901, and was chartered in 1905.

The club became a department club in 1908. This meant that while the club would have general meetings which all the women attended, it also had a number of different departments in which women could study a range of topics, including art, music, and literature. At this time, several different women's cultural groups merged into the club, including the Shakespeare Club and the Matinee Music Club. The name of the club was changed from the Woman's Reading Club to the Woman's Club of Beaumont in 1927, reflecting its change to a department club.

The Woman's Club was one of the first clubs in the state to own their own house. They earned the money for the building through activities such as editing the Christmas edition of the Beaumont Journal. They purchased two lots at the intersection of Liberty and Willow, but later sold these lots and bought a single lot on Magnolia in December, 1908. The first meeting in the club house, located at 575 Magnolia, was held on April 23, 1909. The two-story house of semi-colonial style has a large parlor, entrance, kitchen, and meeting rooms. Several uses for the second floor were considered, including a ballroom and a studio, but it is currently used for storage.

The clubhouse suffered considerable damage after Hurricane Rita in 2005 and Hurricane Ike in 2008, but was extensively renovated and reopened in 2010.

The Woman's Club was determined to create a more beautiful city. They not only did beautification work such as planting shade trees on Hazel and Broadway, but also lobbied the city council for improvements. Mrs. Joe Cunningham offered a resolution for keeping chickens off the streets and out of flower beds. The Woman's Club also supported city garbage removal.

The Woman's Club early recognized the need for a public library in Beaumont. In 1901, the club offered the city a lot to build a library, with the expectation that the city was to pay the cost of the library and give the club a place to meet. The city declined their offer. Instead, the club opened a small library of its own. This library, which consisted primarily of reference works, was open on Saturdays to the public. Only members could check out books.

As the club's founder noted in 1935, the club has been "a progressive factor in the cultural and civic life of Beaumont." Its contributions to the culture of the community include not only their work for a public library, but also sponsoring piano recitals, concerts, and art exhibits. They have hosted a number of impressive speakers, including Cornelia Otis Skinner, Governor Price Daniel, and Congressman Jack Brooks, whose mother, Grace, was a member of the club.

The club motto, "Onward and Upward," is reflected in their work for the community good, including funding scholarships to Lamar University, taking part in anti-tuberculosis drives, and purchasing books for the Sour Lake Reading Center. During the 1915 hurricane, which devastated Port Arthur, the Woman's Club was headquarters for flood relief. The club also actively contributed to the war effort during World War I and II, aiding the Red Cross by rolling bandages and working in the Red Cross County Sewing Units.

The departments of the Club have changed many times over the years. Present departments include the Chorus Department, Piano Ensemble Department, Craft Study Department, Gardening Department, Literature Department, Bible Study Department, Gourmet Hostess Department, and a Museum, Antique, and History Department. The Club holds two annual fundraisers: the Fall Food Fair, and the Style Show in March.

Scope and Content Note

The Woman's Club of Beaumont Records reveal the history of one of Beaumont's oldest cultural societies. The records include most of the Club's regular meeting minutes, dating from 1897 to 1976, and a great deal of the minutes of the Board of Directors, from 1905 to 1976. These minutes record the history of the Club as it grew, and show the concerns of its members as they confronted Beaumont's needs both in times of peace and in times of strife. Minutes of some of the departments of the club are also included, such as the Music Department, Literature Department, Shakespeare Department, and Art Department, and show how the Club's organization changed over the years. The records include topical subject files, arranged in alphabetical order, which include many of the club's projects and interests. The photographs depict early members and early views of the clubhouse. An early ledger lists the books held in the Club's library, and contains a handwritten description of the first meeting of a library commission, held March 20, 1896, which was created to investigate the possibility of establishing Beaumont's first public library. The records include comprehensive membership materials, including both applications and resignations, dating from the 1920s to the 1970s. Yearbooks, dating from 1899 to 2002, are also collected in the records. Finally, scrapbooks of newspaper clippings demonstrate the crucial role played by the Woman's Club in the social life of Beaumont.
