Wednesday's Wonderful Collection - Army and Navy Woman's Club records, MS.00336

 After World War I, Mrs. Ira C. Hopper conceived the idea of organizing a club for military wives, especially those at Camp Pike, Pulaski County, Arkansas. Women established the group in 1923 to support patriotic goals and to teach the proper observance of patriotic holidays. The membership was limited to mothers, widows, wives, daughters, and sisters of present or former commissioned officers (including female) of the uniformed defense forces of the United States of America. The Army and Navy Woman's Club presented copies of "Code of Ethics of Our Flag" to fifth grade students in the Little Rock and North Little Rock, Arkansas, schools. The club supported veterans in the hospital and needy veterans at home with food, clothing, and toys, particularly at Thanksgiving and Christmas. The organization disbanded in 1981.
