Scope and Contents note

This collection consists of records of the Michigan State Federation of Women's Clubs (founded 1895) primarily from the administration of Luella Mumford, 1928-1930. Mrs. Mumford (d. 1960) was the wife of Eben Mumford, professor of sociology at Michigan State College. The M.S.F.W.C. is an affiliate of the General Federation of Women's Clubs.

Papers include correspondence, accounts, programs from member clubs, minutes, motion picture reviews, resolutions, yearbooks, and reports on organization activities in such areas as art appreciation and child care.

Earlier records include issues of The Interchange (1894-1903), the  Michigan Club Bulletin (1916 – 1917), a women's magazine which was for a time the official publication of the M.S.F.W.C., an account book recording club dues (1907-21), and a checkbook (1925-1927).
