Scope and Contents

Minutes and reports from the YWCA of the U.S.A. West Central Field Committee. Field committees unite local associations under the general purposes and missions of the National YWCA, assist with emerging and established local associations, arrange conferences and camps, and oversee fundraising campaigns. Materials include reports from field secretaries. These narrative reports summarize work with local associations, make recommendations and requests for personnel and finance, report on association program, assess the state of local associations, and assess the needs of local populations. Early years in the West Central Field center around growing associations, recruiting new members, religious education, and delivering a united message to all associations. World War I shifts the attention of all committees to war work and following the war effort increased attention is given to immigrant populations and employed women.
