Series 2
Reports and minutes, 1904-1980
Boxes 9 - 10

Scope and Content Note

This series contains a variety of materials that can generally be designated reports and minutes, although their fragmentary nature offers only glimpses rather than a comprehensive view of the operation of the Georgia WCTU. Included are copies of the state organization's constitution and bylaws, minutes of a few meetings of the state board, reports and minutes of a few local unions, and a more complete set of local union report forms. A more complete sequence of short reports on union activities throughout the state is located in this series. These appear to have been written for the Atlanta newspapers when they published weekly WCTU columns about the organization's activities throughout the state.

A number of organizational histories of the state WCTU, compiled at different periods and offering the perceptions of various WCTU officers, represent the most valuable portion of this series. A copy of a 1978 master's thesis covering the Georgia WCTU from 1883 to 1918 is also located here.

Other material related to organizational matters is located in Series 1, Correspondence, and Series 3, Financial and Membership Records.

Arrangement Note

The series is organized according to type of document and then arranged chronologically.
