Virginia Organization Web Archive

Collected by: Library of Virginia

Archived since: Sep, 2008

Description:

In addition to the papers of individuals, families, businesses, churches, and other entities, the Private Papers section of the Library of Virginia also collects materials from Virginia organizations. Hoping to capture the online presence as well as the more traditional records of these groups, the Library has begun the process of archiving Web sites of organizations that are already represented in our collection. These include social, civic, service, cultural, and other groups that may be either entirely Virginia-based, or the Virginia branches of larger organizations.

URL: http://www.vabpwfoundation.org/

Description: The National Business and Professional Women’s Club held its first convention in St. Louis in July 1919. The same year, Dr. Orie Latham Hatcher, Cornelia Adair, Geline MacDonald Bowman, Ella Graham Agnew, Katherine Hawes, and Mrs. Beverly B. Munford called the meeting at which the Virginia Federation was formed with the clubs of Richmond, Roanoke, Lynchburg, and Danville as its charter members. Virginia was one of the earliest state federations to affiliate with the National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs. The Virginia Federation established the Virginia Business and Professional Women’s Foundation (Virginia BPW Foundation) in 1984. In 2009, due to declining membership, the Virginia Federation dissolved. The Foundation is still in existence.
