Wyatt Scrapbook - YWCA Membership Campaign Committee

In November 2011, I purchased a scrapbook at an antiques mall in Carson, California. The scrapbook is believed to have belonged to Laurine Wyatt. I am transcribing the articles and documents contained in the scrapbook with the hope that it may be of value to genealogists who may be researching the individuals named.

This is another of the numerous articles and documents related to the Y.W.C.A. contained in the scrapbook.

"Y. W. C. A. Membership Campaign Committee

"–Banner Staff Photo.

"One of the committees working with enthusiasm for the Y. W. C. A. annual membership drive is the Business Women's Committee, of which Mrs. Weaver Harris serves as colonel. The campaign was launched Wednesday with a luncheon attended by 300 women. In the above group, reading from left to right, are, first row: Miss Callie May White, Miss Gertrude Miller, Miss Lorena Davis, Miss Mai Gregory, Miss Evelyn Stark, Mrs. Robert Parrish; second row: Miss Elizabeth McGregor, Miss Mamie Akin, Miss Margaret Kain, Mrs. Paul Cherry, Dr. Edna Pennington, Mrs. Emil Marugg; third row: Miss Rush Worley, Miss Katherine Morris, Miss Frances Beasley, Miss Ina Sherrebeck, Miss Alice McMahon, Miss Dessa Ainlay; top row: Miss Marie Hayes, Miss Fannie Rogers, and Mrs. Weaver Harris."

Note: It is likely this photo appeared in the Nashville (TN) Banner; however, the date of publication is unknown.
