Scope and Contents: The majority of the records deal with the internal workings of the Y.W.C.A. The materials contain correspondence, minutes of meetings, fiscal records, reports, and lists of officers. The papers also contain information on projects, circulars and brochures, programs, and articles. There are two manuscripts: one of Norma Kidd Green's book The First Seventy-Five Years, 1884-1959, of the Young Women's Christian Association of the University of Nebraska and a second by Helen Thoburn titled Grace Coppock, a Person for Today. Also to be found is information on the 50th anniversary celebration of the Y.W.C.A., alumni information, and scrapbooks. In July of 1957, a rain storm resulted in the loss of all Y.W.C.A. records stored in the basement of Ellen Smith Hall.
