Overview and metadata sections
The Brookline Women's Club was a social and service organization for women in the Brookline neighborhood of Haverford Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. The group was active from the early 20th century until the first years of the 21st century.

Financial records include cancelled checks, check stubs, treasurer's reports (1950-1984), and one volume from 1916 to 1917.
Other materials in the collection include guest books, circa 1950s, and a small amount of correspondence with the Delaware County Federation of Women's Clubs (DCFWC) and other DCFCW-related materials, circa 1970s.
Gift, circa 2008.
Summary descriptive information on this collection was compiled in 2012-2014 as part of a project conducted by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania to make better known and more accessible the largely hidden collections of small, primarily volunteer run repositories in the Philadelphia area. The Hidden Collections Initiative for Pennsylvania Small Archival Repositories (HCI-PSAR) was funded by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
This is a preliminary finding aid. No physical processing, rehousing, reorganizing, or folder listing was accomplished during the HCI-PSAR project.
In some cases, more detailed inventories or finding aids may be available on-site at the repository where this collection is held; please contact Haverford Township Historical Society directly for more information.
