Series II. Charter, By-laws, and Organization, 1894-1974

Scope and Content Notes:

Series II contains organizational records. While there is a constitution for the National Council of Jewish Women, sections are governed by their own by-laws and standing rules. These are frequently revised and this series contains many revisions from 1926 onward. Mrs. Zugsmith's historic survey mentions, "the Pittsburgh Section, NCJW took out a charter and became an incorporated body... in May, 1909." No trace of this charter has been found to date. This series also includes the incorporation papers of 1921.
