The Junior League of Dayton Records document a nonprofit organization of women committed to educating the community, developing the potential of women, and improving the quality of life in the Miami Valley. Dayton's Junior League was the second of its kind in Ohio, in affiliation with the Junior League of America, and was established in 1920. Since its commencement, the League has provided support through member led volunteer work, educational opportunities, fundraisers, and monetary contributions to other nonprofit groups. The collection includes administrative records and publications that date back to the beginning of the organization. Ledgers were used to manage administrative, community, and other funds through the 1990s. Photographs, slides, and negatives of members, meetings, special events, and projects are included from every decade of the League's existence. The collection also contains newspaper clippings and event information, including extensive coverage of the Town Hall Lecture Series from 1956 to 2011. Floppy disks, video reels, CDs, and other forms of electronic media document events and projects from 1966 to 2014.
The records are in English
