Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the development, history, programs and organization of YWCA of the U.S.A. associations and programs in Texas. Documents are arranged alphabetically by town beginning with the Dallas district and ending with El Paso. For developing associations that have yet to be affiliated, materials include letters of interest, advisory correspondence with regional and national representatives and visitation reports. The YWCA of the Dallas District includes counties in a roughly fifty mile radius of Dallas. The records include information concerning its affiliation and history as well as its discontinuance. As a fully affiliated association, the YWCA of El Paso has the most materials in this section. These materials include constitutions and bylaws, administrative records, a completed residence survey, visitation reports, lists of staff and volunteer leaders, a report of a study of the association and advisory correspondence. Following the materials concerning the whole association is a brief history of the association's international institute and a letter recommending that the institute be reopened.
