Biographical/Historical Note

The Appalachian State University Women's Club is an organization for women who are employed by ASU or who are the wives of ASU employees or ASU Retirees. Under its current name, the Women's Club has been operating since at least 1961. The "Faculty Dames" appear to have been a precursor to the Women's Club, and these records also contain some files from the Faculty Newcomer's Club.
