Scope and Contents

Minutes and reports of the field work committee and its secretaries for the east central field, covering Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Reports from the industrial, student, city and county and office secretaries detail the condition of existing associations and populations served, make recommendations for improvements, summarize their trips and comment on the general needs of the region. Executive secretary reports summarize the work of all field secretaries and the program emphases of the regional work. World War I brings a focus on war work for all girls and the increased needs in the areas of industrial work and work with foreign and immigrant women.

Conditions Governing Access

From the Record Group: This collection is open for use without restriction beyond the standard terms and conditions of Smith College Special Collections.

However, by agreement with the YWCA of the U.S.A., microdexes known to contain financial records or personal health information (usually on job applications) were not digitized and/or not published in our online repository as part of the CLIR Digitizing Hidden Collections grant. These microdexes may still be accessed on the original microfilm, and digital files may be made available to individual researchers upon request.

Conditions Governing Access

From the Record Group: Until we move into New Neilson in early 2021, collections are stored in multiple locations and may take up to 48 hours to retrieve. Researchers are strongly encouraged to contact Special Collections (specialcollections@smith.edu) at least a week in advance of any planned visits so that boxes may be retrieved for them in a timely manner.
