History by the Decade

1941 - 1950


1941       The U.S. entered World War II and the nation's interest and energies centered on the war effort. Tough times for clubs everywhere, but 25 loyal members of our club struggled to keep our organization alive and our building unsold.


1946-47    The Marshall Plan brought recovery to Post-War Europe, and the Junior Woman's Club, revived and reorganized, became a Department of the Southside Woman's Club. A drive to raise funds for a Baptist Hospital began, with our club playing an active role, and our President on the Advisory Board for this drive.

 

1950       The U.S. began a "police action" in Korea, the club organized a Little Women's" group for our teenagers and reactivated its Scholarship Fund.
