WOMAN’S
CLUB OF ORANGE


RECORDS,
1872-1974


     


 


           
A female newspaper writer, Jennie June Croly, was refused a
ticket to a dinner given by the Press Club of New York to honor
the 1868 visit of Charles Dickens.  This offense caused Ms.
Croly to develop a plan for a club for women, which she named
“Sorosis.”  At the same time, Bostonian’s
Mary Livermore and Julia Ward Howe, among others, organized a 
woman’s club with men as associate members, unaware of the
action of the New York group.  These women all realized that
as individuals they could not expect recognition, but that united
they could demand, and receive consideration.  The two
organizations became the nucleus of the woman’s club
movement.


 


           
The Women’s Club of Orange evolved from a February, 1872
meeting at the home of Mrs. Louise Lord Riley in East Orange, New
Jersey, and the club (the fifth woman’s club in the country)
was formally established in April 1872, with fifteen charter
members.  The original purpose of the club was “the
discussion of the topics of social and general importance for the
purpose of awakening in its members a  more vital interest
in such topics.”  The list of topics considered during
the first years of the club’s existence included the
following:  “Can the ladies of Orange, by a unified
effort, do anything to improve domestic service?”; “Is
the extravagance of American women the cause of the overwork and
premature decay of American men?”; “Do the women of the
middle and upper classes do their share of the work in the
world?”; “What duties does the right of suffrage
entail?”; and “Does a liberal education unfit a person
for a practical life?”


 


           
During the early years each member of the club was expected to
furnish a topic for discussion, and to prepare a paper on their
topic.  Failure to do so meant a fine, first of fifty cents,
and then a dollar.  This method stimulated discussion of
“worthwhile” topics, such as education, dress, nursing,
social duties, temperance, suffrage, personal responsibility, and
the abolition of war.


 


           
However, the club grew slowly due to prejudice against formation
of clubs for women, and by 1879, the club had only increased its
membership to forty-four.  These difficulties didn’t
dissuade the club from becoming involved in community affairs,
and committees were established (taking the place of individual
topics) to accomplish this objective.


 


           
In 1873, the club established the first evening school for girls
in the Oranges, which had a sixteen-week term, and was attended
by about thirty girls.  The school was a success and it was
continued by the city of Orange.  During that same year, the
club gave $10.00 to each public school in the Oranges towards
their school libraries, and thus entitled the schools to an equal
amount of funds from the State of New Jersey.  A few years
later, the club joined two other organizations in employing a
woman as Sanitary Inspector in Orange.


 


           
Sorosis, the original woman’s club, celebrated its
twenty-first anniversary in 1889, by inviting other women’s
club presidents to attend their anniversary ceremonies.  Then
in 1890, Sorosis invited the ninety-seven clubs then in existence
to send representatives to a meeting in New York to create a 
permanent national organization.  Sixty-one delegates
attended, and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs became
a reality.  Mrs. Charlotte Emerson Brown of Orange was
chosen as its first president, and on December 29, 1893 the
General Federation of Women’s Clubs was incorporated in
Newark, New Jersey.


 


           
The existing clubs in New Jersey, enthused by the events taking
place, eagerly accepted the invitation of the Woman’s Club
of Orange to assemble in Union Hall, Orange, on November 16,
1894.  Here the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s
Clubs was founded, and on March 15, 1895 the charter members
roster closed with thirty-six clubs.


 


           
The woman’s club movement was growing, and the Woman’s
Club of Orange saw its membership reach five hundred in 1903,
with a waiting list of 200.  Club membership included Mrs.
Thomas Alva Edison, and other wealthy and socially prominent
residents of the Oranges.  The membership’s increased
size, and its prominence in the community, enabled the club to
successfully champion causes to improve the welfare of women and
children.  The Civics and Legislative Committees
investigated the need for a reformatory for women, accelerated
passage of a law controlling immigration, aided in the
establishment of the milk inspection bureau, and initiated action
toward the support  of a  pure food bill.  Also,
the Civic Committee engaged a field secretary, who investigated
the milk supply, baby-saving work, and housing conditions in the
Oranges, for a period of two years.  Results of her
investigations were published in pamphlet form, and used as a 
model throughout the country. 


 


           
Although they lacked the vote, the club members were able to
accomplish noteworthy social improvements in the Oranges,
including the establishment of the first playground in New
Jersey.   The Orange Employment Bureau (later taken
over by the Federal Government) was started by the Women’s
Club, and in the first year placed 1,291 men and 1,068 women in
permanent positions.  While committed to community welfare,
the Woman’s Club of Orange still remembered its first
commitment to the feminist cause.  They clamored for the
legal recognition of women’s right to vote, and the
Nineteenth  Amendment was ratified on August 26, 1920,
largely because of the efforts of feminist leaders and
organizations like the Woman’s Club of Orange.


 


           
In 1926, membership reached 1,200.  In the same year, the
Junior Woman’s Club of Orange was organized with two hundred
members and a waiting list.  The Junior Woman’s Club
was open to women between the ages of twenty and thirty, with the
purpose of bridging the age gap, and bringing in members to the
senior club already trained in group skills.


 


           
The highest membership for both the Senior and Junior
Woman’s Club of Orange occurred during the 1920s to the late
1940s, and during these years the clubs artistic members wrote
plays and staged costume productions of both classical and modern
plays.  Also, Sunday evening twilight musicals were started,
lecture series were sponsored, and extension courses were offered
on subjects ranging from French to horseback riding.


 


           
The social functions of the club were gradually superseding its
commitment to social welfare and legislative reform programs. 
However, the club did continue to contribute time and money to
charitable organizations, and in 1956, voted to set aside
one-tenth of its annual income to  be contributed towards
philanthropies.  This action resulted in the government
reclassifying the club as a charitable organization, making it
exempt from further excise tax.


 


           
The membership in the Senior and Junior Woman’s Clubs of
Orange began a downward trend in the 1950s and 1960s, causing the
dissolution of the Junior Woman’s Club of Orange on November
20, 1969.  When the Junior Woman’s Club dissolved it
had only twenty members, but was financially sound with assets
totaling almost $10,000.  These funds were disbursed to
charitable organizations in Essex County. 


 


           
The Senior Woman’s Club of Orange had fallen from 1,200 to
250 members, which caused a vote for dissolution in  1976
and the formulation of a  plan for disposition of its assets
totaling $93,000.  The funds were divided among charities in
Essex County, with the largest gift given to Upsala College in
East Orange.  Upsala College received $50,000 to establish a
trust, with  the annual income used for scholarship aid in
the name of the Woman’s Club of Orange.  The formal
dissolution of the club took place in April, 1977.
