Documents concerning YWCA of the U.S.A. associations and the organization of new associations in Louisiana. For developing and emerging associations such as in Hodge and Alexandria, YWCA of the U.S.A. secretaries make visits and correspondence advising on how best to proceed with development of the association. Visitation reports make assessments of the existing leadership and YWCA program, membership and community interest, and the needs of the women and girls of the community. Documents concerning the affiliated associations in Baton Rouge, Bogalusa and Monroe include constitutions, administrative records, historical summaries of the associations, lists of leadership and correspondence with the national services. Also included is the Louisiana bill related to the incorporation of not for profit corporations.
