Scope and Contents

Official programs and reports of YWCA of the U.S.A. state committees arranged alphabetically by state covering Indiana through West Virginia. Materials include convention and conference proceedings where the overall status of the state's associations may be discussed in addition to matters of finance, membership statistics, and organizational management and governance. Summaries of addresses and discussions serve to provide an overview of the focus of the associations. Materials may also report on the status of specific student, city, or factory associations, discuss religious education, provide a history of a state's association work, and report on missionary work and support.

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.
