Indiana, circa 1913-1950
Scope and Contents
Documents concerning YWCA of the U.S.A. associations in Logansport and Marion, Indiana and interest in new associations in La Porte, Ligonier, Michigan City and Mishawaka. Prior to organizing a new association the YWCA of the U.S.A. assesses the current interest in the community, the community needs and other organizations doing work with girls and women. These efforts are documented through correspondence between the local organizer and a representative from the national organization in addition to visitation reports following a visit from a YWCA of the U.S.A. secretary. Documents concerning the affiliated associations in Logansport and Marion include visitation reports, constitutions and bylaws, lists of professional and volunteer leadership, a residence survey for the YWCA of Logansport building and administrative records.
