■OMEN’S CLUBS (Continued from page 1) number of strong clubs in some of the larger cities of the country, but they were not affiliated and the lar ger idea of 'effecting the social regen eration of the race was scarcely con ceived of . Among the earlier chibs the Wo man’s League of Washington, I>. C. organised in 1892 and the Woman’s Era Club of Boston organized in Jan uary, 1893. The Woman’s League claims to have originated the idea of a national organization of Colored Wo men’s Clubs. The Harper’s Woman’s Club of Jef ferson City, Mo., was formed in 1892. 1. B. W. Club of Chicago, IU., organize ed November, 1894. The Bell Phoebe! League df Pittsburgh, Pa., organized November, 1894. The Woman’s League of Denver, Colo., The Phyllis Wheatley Club of New Orleans, The Sojourners Club of Knoxville, Tenn., organized in 1890. It will thus be seen that from 1890 to 1895 the character of Afro American womanhood began to assert itself in definite purpose and efforts in club wofk. The incentive in most cases was quite simple and direct. How to lengthen the short school term in Some impoverished school district. How to interest and instruct defi cient mothers in the difficulties of child training are some of the motives that led to the formation of the great majority of the clubs. The Woman’s Era Journal of Bos ton, began to agitate the matter of a national organization in 1894 and re quested the clubs to express them selves through its columns.
