Scope and Contents

The Utah Federations of Women’s Club Collection was donated in 2010, by

Gayla Hansen on behalf of Ann Hansen. Ann Hansen served as president of the Polio

Ogden Emergency Volunteer Club for 1953-1954 and 1965-1966. She later served

as president of the Ogden District of the Utah Federation of Women’s Club for the

three terms of 1974-1975, 1976-1978, and 1978-1980. Ann also served as the

Historian and Photographer for the World Affairs Club, as well as the president

during the term of 1982-1984. Ann served as President and Historian for the

International Relations Study Club, and was also a member of the Ogden Business

and Professional Women’s Club.

The Utah Federation of Women’s Clubs, including the Ogden District of the

UFWC, represented many clubs. These clubs served their communities by holding

fundraisers, benefits and programs helping local establishments and institutions

financially and bringing public awareness to them, including the Weber County

Library. They held regular meetings and events, yearly conventions, and personal

club outings. Clubs that were under the umbrella of the UFWC were:

 World Affairs Club

 International Relations Club

 Home Culture Club

 Polio Emergency Volunteer Club

 Challenger Club

 Business and Professional Women’s Club

 League of Women Voters of Weber County Club

 American Association of University Women

The UFWC Collection includes scrapbooks, newspaper clippings,

photographs, club reports and official papers, meeting notes, correspondence,

convention programs, publications, and various other materials. There is no

organization of materials for individual clubs since most of the materials were in

scrapbooks, but publications, photographs, and loose newspaper clippings are

organized chronologically, as well as some of the UFWC and Ogden District

convention materials.
