Biographical Note

The Faculty Wives' Social Club of North Texas State Teachers College began in 1947 for wives of faculty at the University of North Texas to socialize and become part of the community. In 1971, the group changed its name to Women of North Texas State University, which it would remain until 1989.  It then became the Women of the University of North Texas, which lasted through 2012. The Faculty Wives’ Social Club sponsored The Dames Club for the wives of graduate school students, as well as the Newcomers Club, for wives whose husbands had been faculty for less than two years. Eventually, the clubs were opened up to husbands, female faculty, and female graduate students.
