Women’s History and Resource
The WHRC welcomes inquiries
from GFWC members on a variety of topics, including the preservation of
historic records, buildings, and artifacts; the organization and
publication of club history; and creative ways to use GFWC’s history
for community outreach.
Your club’s history is valuable to your community and
to GFWC. The WHRC
can help you preserve your club’s archives, record the oral history of
longtime members, and write an engaging historical narrative. The WHRC
has prepared two free guidelines to help you with these projects:
