Description : The YWCA in Louisville operated in 1912 with programs focusing on religious studies, physical fitness, and education. Over the years the programs grew to meet the changing times. Some examples include summer camps, a hostess house for soldiers at Camp Taylor during World War I, special training programs during the 1930s, teenage parenting programs in the 1970s, as well as spouse abuse programs. During the 1950s and 1960s there were several branch expansions. The collection contains material documenting the legal, social, administrative, and fiscal history of the YWCA in Louisville, from the founding of the central branch in 1912 and the West End Phillis Wheatley branch in 1922, into the 1970s. Records include legal documents including the constitutions and bylaws, board of directors and various committee minutes, correspondence, printed and published material, photographs, and financial records.
