Abstract This collection is interesting largely as an institutional history or in the context of other, similar organizations formed around the same time, including but not limited to other YWCAs. Its target audience was somewhere between that of a settlement house and a working women's guild; while each involved elite women attempting to help those in need of aid, the class status of the second group was not identical. Historians may wish to investigate whether these differences affected relationships between the various constituencies.
