Texas Business and Professional Womens' Club

Correspondence and state reports comprise the majority of this series. The correspondence is between state and District II officials of the club, and club members at the local level. The state reports are divided into financial and membership sub-series. Finances of the state organization, including contributions from district and local clubs are found in the financial files, and similarly detailed information about membership trends across the state in the membership files. Another sub-series of note is the minutes of the state board of directors meetings held monthly. These documents offer a detailed look at how the club functions at the state level. The series also contains issues of the state organization's publication, Texas Business and Professional Woman, in a nearly complete from 1948 to 1978.
Arranged by form.
