Historical Note

The Woman's Club of San Antonio, a club organized for charitable work, education and fellowship, was founded on October 1, 1898. It is the oldest women's civic and social organization in San Antonio, and was the first women's club in Texas to endorse women's suffrage. Among the charter members of the Club were San Antonio suffragists Eleanor Brackenridge, Marin B. Fenwick and Anna Hertzberg. The civic interests of the Woman's Club include, but are not limited to, dvocating vocational training for girls in public schools, supporting public health and safety measures, writing members of Congress regarding immigration policies, initiating flower shows to foster local beautification efforts, and establishing March 8 of each year as Friendship Day. The Woman's Club has served the community by offering scholarships and loans to women in college, helping to establish the Witte Museum, supporting the Bexar County Tuberculosis Association, providing volunteers to the State Hospital, and participating in a variety of fund raising events for local charities. One of the largest events in which the Woman's Club participates is Fiesta. The Woman's Club coordinates the Fiesta Flower Show, Fashion Show and Teenage Coronation, and is involved with the Fiesta River Parade and the Pilgrimage to the Alamo. The activities sponsored by the club are well documented in the 'club' pages of the San Antonio Express-News and the former San Antonio Light.

The club has owned two clubhouses, the first on Camden Street, and the current clubhouse on San Pedro, the Woodward House, which is both a state and national landmark. Through meetings, luncheons and community involvement, the Woman's Club provides members with opportunities for friendship, exchange of ideas, professional networking and philanthropy. As of January 1996, the Woman's Club continues to meet and engage in community activities in San Antonio.
