Dates of existence
The Dalhousie Women's Club (DWC) was established in 1951 largely through the efforts of Jean Elizabeth Macdonald (née Frazer) and Evelyn Olive Longard (née Nickerson), both of whom were alumnae members of the Board of Governors. The purpose of the club was to promote acquaintance and friendship among the women of Dalhousie University, King's College and affiliated institutions.
Tea parties, dances, fashion shows, guest lectures and field trips provided an opportunity for club members and their families to convene. In addition, the DWC organized a special luncheon each September—referred to as the “Newcomers' Party”—for incoming female faculty members and the wives of male faculty.
During the 1960s the DWC began forming interest groups such as a book club and the “out to lunch” club. The Dalhousie Women's Club ceased operation in 1995.
