Founded in 1894, the Woman’s Club is a “non-profit organization committed to providing an educational and cultural center for its members, preserving the integrity of its historic clubhouse, improving conditions and opportunities for women, and enhancing the quality of life in our community.” During the late nineteenth century the Woman’s Club, originally known as the Current Topics Club, was the only woman’s organization in El Paso. The group’s members were instrumental in establishing the first public school kindergarten in Texas as well as supporting pure food laws, city sanitation and beautification efforts, historic preservation of the San Jacinto Plaza, and many cultural events in El Paso.
This is a collection of interviews of past presidents reflecting on their year in office.
There is a Finding Aid that provides more information about the Club.
