Administrative history

In 1914, members of the Ladies' Auxiliary of the American Men's Club formed the American Woman's Club. The organization aimed "to bring together in a social way American women living in Vancouver, B.C. and vicinity to endeavour to broaden and strengthen the intellectual and social life of its members and, through them, make a club a power of good in the community". The Club disbanded in 1989.
