Historical Note

The Spartan Wives started in 1946 or 1947 as an organization for women who were either married and attending Michigan State University or married and their husbands were attending MSU. The organization was a social network for the wives, planning family picnics and helping arrange baby sitting for children. The group also volunteered in the community hosting Christmas for underprivileged children, classes, and a mobile x-ray unit for tuberculosis checks.
