Scope and Contents
Minutes and reports of the National Board of the YWCA of the U.S.A. and its executive committee. There are no microdexes two or three on this reel and the materials for 1943 were filmed out of order and appear following 1944. Minutes concern national business, budgets and finance, committee business, resolutions and recommendations and personnel. Throughout these materials discussion of the international situation continues to increase. In addition, materials may include reports from various committees, reports of programming and method, and summaries of conferences and conventions.
