Women's History and Resource Center
Founded in 1984, the Women's History and Resource Center collects, preserves, interprets, and promotes the history of the GFWC and women volunteers. The WHRC documents the social and political contributions of GFWC clubwomen from 1890 to the present through the GFWC archives, related special collections, and publications.
GFWC Virtual Exhibits
Explore GFWC history through our virtual exhibits, GFWC History Timeline: 1868-2009 and International Presidents of the General Federation of Women's Clubs: 1890-2011. Showcasing GFWC accomplishments, milestones, and International Past Presidents; each exhibit directs you to related records in the WHRC online catalog.
WHRC Online Catalog
The WHRC online catalog currently provides access to a growing body of information and images related to GFWC's history, including archival material, photographs, publications, art, and artifacts. Tips for searching are available by clicking the Help button on the search screen. To avoid too many hits, leave out GFWC when searching for names of clubs and state federations. Watch for catalog updates as new material is added.
