1914-15 Constitution of the Young Women's Christian Association
Date: 
September 1914

Included in the 1914-15 student handbook, published by the Christian
associations, is the full constitution of the Young Women's Christian
Association. Prior to 1913 only parts of the YWCA constitution were
printed in the student handbook. The constitution included information
on membership, meetings, Bible study, mission study, missionary work,
conventions, student conferences, and its mission statement. Article II
of the constitution states that the object of the organization "shall
be the development of Christian character in its members and the
prosecution of active Christian work particularly among the young women
of the institution." Kathryn Hodgson held the position as
president. Vice-president was
filled by Mabel Dexter, Ina Mitchell held the position as
secretary, and finally Ethel Wagg acted as treasurer.
