Abstract

Organized in 1933, the Aeolian Chapter of the National Federation of Music Clubs objectives were for mutual help and the advancement of music in the community. The collection is composed of club records, yearbooks, scrapbooks, a manual, reports and sheet music.

Historical Note

On January 20, 1933 a group of women met at the home of Mrs. A.H. Hoppe for the purpose of organizing a music club under the auspices of the American Association of University Women. At this time, it was decided to study the regular course outlined by the National Federation of Music Clubs which was based on four years regular work. In 1934, the club became federated with the National Federation of Music Clubs. The Club's objectives were for mutual help and the advancement of music in the community.
