This record group includes material which documents the legal, social, administrative, and fiscal history of the YWCA in Louisville, from the founding of the central branch in 1912 and the west end branch (Phillis Wheatley) in 1922 into the 1970s. Record types include legal documents (constitutions and bylaws), board of directors and various committee minutes, correspondence, printed and published material, photographs, and financial records. Some photographs from these four shipments were removed and segregated into a separate photograph series. A portion of the records are in poor physical condition. Access to the personnel records requires the permission of the University Archivist.
Open to researchers with the exception of some records relating to personnel, which are restricted.
