Administrative History

In 1896, fifty-one Southside Chicago women organized the Englewood Women's Club for the purpose of promoting social interaction through educational and cultural events. During the Club's History, they sponsored programs on a variety of topics related to sociology, music, visual arts, and education. The club co-sponsored a lecture series and produced plays with the University of Chicago, which took place at the People's Liberal Church and brought together faculty and community members. Club members undertook various philanthropic and community service initiatives, including work with Englewood High School and fundraising drives for war relief. The club remained active through the 1920's.
