Historical Note

The UTMB Faculty Women’s Club is a social organization that was founded in 1946 by Mrs. Elizabeth Leake, wife of Chauncey Leake (UTMB’s Executive Vice President from 1942-1955). In a speech given by Mrs. Leake on May 15, 1953, she describes the club as one that [includes] all women connected with the Medical Branch for the purpose of furthering friendships and helping newcomers find homes and adjust to changed surroundings and climate and avail themselves of the cordial spirit displayed constantly among the Medical School group and in Galveston itself. Currently, the Faculty Women’s Club is comprised of female faculty as well as the female spouses of UTMB faculty.
