KC Manuscript Collection 150
The collection contains seven scrapbooks created by the Ridgefields Garden Club between 1957 and 1999. The club was organized on February 5, 1956 by a group of nine women “for the study and arrangement of all plant life as it particularly pertains to our homes and community life.” The scrapbooks are mostly comprised of photographs taken at club events. In addition, there are newspaper clippings, yearbooks, and other miscellany. The Ridgefields Garden club is also planning to donate the minutes of the club in fall 2006, as well as the current scrapbook, which will be donated when full.
There are no restrictions on use of this collection for research purposes. The researcher assumes full responsibility for observing all copyright, property, and libel laws as they apply.
