The Chico Women’s Club (also known as Chico Womens Club) records contain records dating from the 1930’s through the 2000’s. Earlier records are scarce and the bulk of the records date from the 1950’s through the 1990’s. Administrative records, including club minutes and yearly reports make up a large portion of the collection. There are also a fair number of press books and scrapbooks most of which contain newspaper clippings, photos, and yearbooks.
The Chico Women’s Club Records contains many documents on committees and community projects including: Annie’s Glenn, Caper Acres, Bidwell Mansion Restoration, Bidwell Papers, California Heritage, Indian Affairs, Citizenship, Veterans, Safety, Crime Prevention, HOBY (Hugh O’Brian Youth Foundation), Legislation-Special Program, Arts Department, Health, Today’s Living, Make a Wish, Status of Women, and International Affairs.
Interspersed within the Chico Women’s Club records are items related to the GFWC and CFWC as the club often participated in committees and projects organized by these two larger groups. The Chico Junior Women’s Club records form a separate series as they had their own meetings and projects.
