Scope and Content Note

The Washington State Vassar Club Records contain the club's constitution, correspondence, mailing lists and meeting minutes. The bulk of the collection is from the years the group was known as the Puget Sound Vassar Club. Also included is a register from the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, which was held in the summer of 1909. Although the register was apparently meant to be a list of Vassar alumnae who attended the exposition, many people with no connection to the college added their signatures.
