Scope and Contents

Documents concerning YWCA of the U.S.A. associations in Enid, Lawton, McAlester and Muskogee, Oklahoma. Administrative records and correspondence for the YWCA of McAlester indicate that is discontinued in 1933 due to financial reasons and may have become part of the Oklahoma District YWCA. YWCA of the U.S.A. activities in Lawton began as USO work during World War II and reports suggest a desire to continue the association there after USO work ends. The administrative history of the associations in Enid and Muskogee can be traced through iterations of constitutions and bylaws in addition to historical notes and association fact sheets. Visitation reports describe and assess the association's program, leadership, activities, facilities and services. Other documents include correspondence concerning relationships with the YMCA, lists of professional and volunteer leaders and advisory correspondence with regional and national leaders.
