Montana: 1897-1916. The Woman’s Club of Butte was organized in 1897 while the greater Montana Federation of Woman’s Club came together in 1904 as a congress of the state’s clubs. In addition to being social clubs, the various Woman’s Clubs provided a center for civic, educational and philanthropic work. Annual reports provide insight to the various clubs' programs leaning heavily towards, music, literature and the arts. Committees at large include Education, Civil Service, Art, Public Health, Legislative, Forestry and Libraries. Try as I might I found no references to Women’s Suffrage, which seems surprising.

The collection ranges from simple string-tied pamphlets to more elaborate gilded programs and bound books. Most are in good to very good condition although several suffer from soiling and light water damage. More scans available upon request. Full inventory is below. These ephemeral pamphlets are scarce with only a small handful found at the Montana State Historical Society and the Library of Congress. No copies of the various Woman’s Club of Butte pamphlets were found in institutions.
