Ohio and West Virginia Field Committee minutes and reports, 1904 March-1911 September
Scope and Contents
Minutes of meetings of the YWCA of the U.S.A. Ohio and West Virginia Field Committee and reports from secretaries in the field. Field work committees work to unite local associations and assist in serving the united purpose of the YWCA of the U.S.A. Committee meetings concern confirming new associations, finance and business matters, planning, and secretarial reports. Monthly Field Secretary reports provide a narrative overview of their work in the field with emerging and established associations. Secretaries make recommendations, evaluate the associations and work to unite the field under the purpose of the YWCA of the U.S.A. In these early years of the Ohio and West Virginia field much of the work is with student associations.
