Title: Federation of Women’s Clubs Portraits

Dates: 1892-1980

Collection Number:  00388

Quantity: 126 items

Abstract: This collection contains portraits of early individual members of the North Dakota Federation of Women’s Clubs as well as group portraits taken at state conventions.  Some of the Sakakawea Junior Girls’ Clubs group portraits are included, as this organization was established by a NDFWC member.  Photos of destitute Native American families in the 1940’s are present, probably representing a humanitarian cause of the NDFWC.  Members and group photos of other local North Dakota clubs, such as the Shakespearean Club, Current Events Club, and the Alfredian Club are also included in the collection.

Provenance: The State Historical Society of North Dakota acquired the North Dakota Federation of Women’s Clubs Records (MSS 10202) as a gift of the Federation in May 1978. A gift agreement was signed by Alice Power August 13, 1982. These photographs were removed from the records and transferred to the Photo Archives in November 1982.

Property Rights:  The State Historical Society of North Dakota owns the property rights to this collection.

HISTORICAL SKETCH: NORTH DAKOTA FEDERATION OF WOMEN’S CLUBS

The North Dakota Federation of Women’s Clubs was organized at the Devils Lake Chautauqua in July 1897. Mary Whedon, editor and general manager of Western Womanhood, suggested holding a “Woman’s Day” at the Chautauqua with hopes of organizing a state federation. The General Federation required a minimum of nine clubs to form a state federation. There were only eight clubs in attendance but the founders quickly organized the Nineteenth Century Club of Devils Lake to meet the nine club requirement. The purpose of the North Dakota Federation of Women’s Clubs was to “bring the women of the State into communication for acquaintance, mutual helpfulness, and the promotion of higher intellectual, social and moral conditions.” Membership is open to “all clubs organized for literary, artistic, musical, philanthropic, scientific, or other educational purposes, who owe allegiance to no political or sectarian control.”
The North Dakota Federation of Women’s Clubs has been involved in numerous projects, including the establishment of the pure food laws, erecting a statue of Sakakawea, gathering data for the Pioneer Mother Project, maintaining libraries and museums, and purchasing the first bookmobile in North Dakota. Currently the North Dakota Federation of Women’s Clubs has 1,852 members in 94 general clubs and one junior club.
