Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the YWCA of Tulsa's African American branch and the Tulsa District YWCA. The North Tulsa Branch of the YWCA of Tulsa serves the African American women and girls of its community. Its functions, purpose and relationship to the central association are established in its constitution and bylaws and visitation reports describe and assess branch program, leadership and activities. Other branch documents include a program for an anniversary celebration, correspondence and a branch fact sheet. The Tulsa District YWCA is a federation of small community associations that are otherwise unable to maintain an affiliated association. The communities in the Tulsa district are absorbed into the state's district in 1933. Documents include historical overviews of the district and work with rural women around Tulsa, visitation reports, suggested program activities, its application for affiliation with the YWCA of the U.S.A. and its constitution and bylaws.
