Scope and Content Note

The club was a Catholic working women’s organization, and the collection contains records of investments, stocks, donations to charities as well as club histories.

Historical Note

St. Helena’s Cooperative Club was founded in 1916 at the suggestion of one of the sisters at St. Helena’s Commercial College. Designed to “enable the Catholic working girls to co-operate with each other . . . in charitable and educational undertakings,” the club operated for over 85 years as a charity and social group for working women. The club founded St. Helena’s Cooperative Night High School in the 1920s and hosted dinners and other gatherings for soldiers in both World War I and World War II. The club disbanded in 2002 because of a decline in membership and a lack of members willing to serve as officers.
