Detailed Collection Information

Historical Note

Like the other local YWCA groups, the YWCA of Germantown is a membership organization organizing the Women’s Christian Association to provide training and assistance "for the temporal, moral and religious welfare of women, especially young women, who are dependent upon their own exertions for support." 

In the fall of 1917, the plan of organizing a branch of the Germantown YWCA for African American women and girls was first formulated in midst of World War I. A group of white women interested in African studies became concerned about the needs of the black community in Germantown. They formed a committee, raising enough money to pay a secretary who, in turn, gathered over 1,000 memberships to start the Branch. An office building in central Germantown (6128 Germantown Avenue) was bought (the central building was at 5820 Germantown Ave.) and in 1918 the “Branch for Colored Girls and Women" opened. 

The Germantown YWCA had its own Committee of Management and its own paid director, although the branch was to submit monthly reports to the Board of Directors of the central YWCA. The director was from the beginning an African American woman, as was the chairperson of the Committee of Management after the first 5 years. As the chairperson of this committee, she became a member of the Board of Directors of the main YWCA and also the first African American woman on the Board. As the Germantown YWCA grew in membership, its staff and program grew as well. 

Although the programs at the Germantown YWCA were based chiefly on the needs of the African American community, the organization worked enthusiastically in furthering race relations. During the 1920s and 1930s there was a committee on race relations which sponsored many special events. These included the celebration of “Negro Achievement Week" in March 1928, an art display of painting and prints by African American artists in 1935, and a number of interracial tea parties throughout the 1930s. They also helped form a community committee, the "Interracial Committee of Germantown," which consisted of business people, interested community leaders, and other branch organizations of YWCA. 

By the 1940s the integration in the YWCA was undertaken, so that "the purpose of the YWCA be recognized as involving the inclusion of Negroes in the mainstream of Association life and that such inclusion be adopted as a conscious goal." The goal of the integration was decided on that spring and the first step, after discussion by the membership and a vote by the board, was the opening of all programs to all women regardless of color, as "the community patterns do not require such separation." All offices of the program and staff from the 6128 building were moved to the 5820 building in 1947. The staff from both buildings were unified and the program was streamlined; the 6128 and the 5820 committees worked jointly on programs to serve the entire community.

It includes secretary’s monthly reports, meeting agendas and minutes, annual reports, board meeting minutes, reports of executive directors, and lists of board of directors.

We find in the series membership annual meeting minutes, cards and job descriptions, committee minutes, agenda, correspondence and reports/survey. The dates cross from 1917 to 1970, membership history of over half a century. 

Series 4:  Correspondence, 1920-1970. Keeps the personal correspondence of the branch officials. These are, mostly, administrators of the YWCA of Germantown, from the first secretary to the last chairman of the organization. Some correspondence are personal letters, official communication forms, or business connections. They recorded the relationship between YWCA and coordinating agencies, or other outside agencies. This series has been arranged in the alphabetical order by last names. 

Series 5:  Personnel, 1903-1970. Contains the YWCA of Germantown personnel records, such as the information of employment applications, letters, job descriptions, salary scales, schedules and guides, staff training (education) programs, and the like. It also contains the health and welfare council survey and insurance plans. Staff conference, meeting minutes are also included in this series. Personnel record file is one of the largest among all series. 

Series 6:  Finances, 1913-1968. Contains budget anticipated explanation and reports. This is a broad range of the budget reporting, covering the financial documents of the organization through years -- from 1913 cash disbursement records, cafeteria financial reports (1917-1925), to yearly budget reports in late 60s (1919-1968). Some very detailed reports of expenses or specific purchasing have been kept in the files. 

Series 7:  Building Use and Maintenance, 1911-1968. Keeps the files of how the buildings of YWCA Germantown had been used and maintained. It covers verities of concepts relating to the building, such as accident reports, administration house reports, contracts and policies for rental, dance license, legal suit and repair costs for use and maintenance.

Series 8:  Labor Relations, 1939-1971. Covers YWCA staff members’ benefits and labor protection by law through the union. It seems that the union was not formed until early 40s. Thus the record covers a comparatively shorter period between the years of 1939 and 1971. The series reflects how the union worked with agreement, contracts, dues records, grievance files and negotiation committee minutes. 

Series 9:  Statistical Reports, 1919-1968. Contains the YWCA of Germantown official statistical records, mainly of the staff health and welfare, social audit and statistical reports. It also includes the Branch’s statistical report to the National Board of YWCA. 

Series 10:  Public Relations, 1920-1971. Generally describes the relationship between YWCA Germantown Branch and other social organizations. It clearly indicates that none of these organizations was isolated in the society. None could have existed without mutual support. It also shows how YWCA Germantown Branch made themselves well known through their publicity and regular news release.

Series 11:  Department, 1916-1970. Contains the records for various departments, programs and clubs of the Germantown YWCA, as well as that of the activities and special events sponsored by YWCA Germantown. They reflect the ongoing efforts the Germantown YWCA made to the colored women in the neighborhood in those well-organized activities. Through most of the activities, the clubs and departments not only provided recreations but also served to provide better quality of life for the minority communities. The series consists of business documents and reports of industrial, professional conferences, of high professional education and recreation departments, and program reports around the neighborhood.

Series 14:  National Board of YWCA, 1922-1969. Records the relationship between the Germantown YWCA and other YWCA branches. The main conferences of east regional organizations take a larger part of the series. 

Series 15:  Coordinating Agencies, 1919-1968. Refer to the local coordinating agencies. In this series, the materials document the united campaign of fund raising and health and welfare counseling activities. A specific study of these campaigns describes how the YWCA Germantown shifted its focus to addressing the usage of the united fund. 

Series 16:  Outside Agencies, 1917-1967.  Reflects how local organizational activities informed outside agencies of their discussions and decisions, so as to seek for moral or economical support or help from others. Participants got from their national and regional parent organizations specific tasks -- form analysis of their own constituency and services to discussion among staff and members on policy issues. The series made it clear that the YWCA Germantown Branch scattered their integrate connections with other organizations, both around the neighborhood or nationwide. 

Series 17:  Scrapbooks, 1918-1960. Early record of the YWCA. It could be considered verity of the history or inventory of the branch.
