Abstract:

The PLF (Progressive, Literary Fraternal) Club records contains materials that document the club's activities from its incorporation in 1900 through its dissolution in 1967.

In addition, the collection includes records from the Washington Federation of Women's Clubs, of which the PLF Club was a member throughout its 67 year existence. These records date from 1928 to 1968, however, the bulk of the material date from 1949 to 1968. Amongst the PLF Club's administrative records, the most valuable are the detailed meeting minutes, which document the interests and activities of the club from 1911 to 1966. Sixty yearbooks, covering 1900 to 1967, provide summaries of the club's membership, activities, and philosophy. The financial records include cash books, receipt books, receipts, and bank statements which provide specific documentation of the club's donations to a variety of charitable causes. Club efforts to support the Whatcom Museum of History and Art in the 1950s and 1960s are particularly well-documented. Other noteworthy documents include a history of the club through 1934, and two reports funded by the club. The first of these two reports, dated 1913, presents the results of a study on the feasibility of using Lake Whatcom as a reservoir. The second, from 1945, is an appraisal of public health resources and services in Whatcom County. Of most interest amongst the WFWC materials are the three scrapbooks, which are contain clippings, event programs, and memorabilia.
