Scope and Contents

The YWCA Oklahoma Rural Project was a project to organize a district association across the state of Oklahoma and bring YWCA work to small and rural communities that would be otherwise unable to maintain an affiliated association. The project was born out of rural extension work of the University of Oklahoma that initiated Girl Reserve clubs in rural communities. The history of the project is further discussed in historical overviews throughout the documents. The documents are arranged chronologically and include progress reports, program plans, committee meeting minutes and reports, community notes and correspondence concerning the organization and development of the project.
