- Biographical or historical data
- The Virginia Federation of Women’s Clubs was founded in 1907 in Lynchburg, Virginia. The first president elected was Mrs. James Kyle, of the Lynchburg Woman’s Club. The Virginia Federation was a state branch of the national organization, the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, which had been established in New York in 1892. The organization consisted of literary, sewing, and social clubs that were founded primarily as a means for self-education and development for women. Gradually, the emphasis of most local clubs changed to community service and improvement.
