Background on Girls Club of Greenfield

Founded in 1895, the Girls Club of Greenfield provides high quality early care and educational services to the girls of Franklin County, Massachusetts, and advocates for the rights of children and their families. During the school year, the Club offers diverse programming, ranging from day care and preschool to after school activities that promote teamwork, community spirit, social skills, and confidence. Since 1958, they have also operated a summer camp, Lion Knoll, in Leyden.

Contents of Collection

This collection documents nearly one century in the life of the Girls Club of Greenfield, from the organization's founding in 1895 through the early 1990s. The bulk of the material dates from the 1940s through the 1970s, though there are records from both the earliest and the more recent days of the Girls Club. Materials include annual reports, meeting minutes, financial materials, and correspondence both incoming and outgoing, formal and informal. Additional types of materials include record books such as ledgers, account books and registration books; program records; scrapbooks; newspaper clippings; photographs; slides; artifacts.

Broadly, this collection documents the workings of a girls club in a medium-sized community over the decades of the twentieth century. It conveys a sense of the administrative workings of the club, and the sorts of activities undertaken by both its leaders and its members, from annual meetings to summer camp, Founder's Weeks to Christmas pageants. One can also derive, through the club's association with outside organizations, a sense of its place in the community. These papers convey, with evocative clarity, the role of an organization whose avowed mission is to "promote character development of girls through a program of cultural, vocational and recreational activities, which will assist them to become better citizens, mothers and homemakers."
