University of Michigan. Faculty Women’s Club.

On October 26, 1921, Nina Burton, wife of U-M President Marion Leroy Burton, gathered together at the President's House fifty women - wives of professors, department heads, deans, and administrative officers - to form a faculty women's club. Then, as now, the purpose of the club was to promote acquaintance, friendship, and collegiality among its members.

The Faculty Women's Club (FWC) was designed so that women faculty and wives of faculty members who shared similar interests would be able to form close friendships in small interest groups. In 1922, the FWC had three interest sections: Drama, Day Nursery and Athletics. Today, there are 39 active sections reflecting the diverse interests, activities and enthusiasms of the members.
