Content Note

An organization with the purpose of advancing the status of women, the Soroptimists chartered its Wichita branch in 1936.

This collection includes scrapbooks, photographs, publications, minutes of board and business meetings, and other business records.

Administrative History

Soroptimist is a word created by combining the Latin words for sister (Soror) and best (Optima). Advancing the status of women is one of the purposes of the organization.

October 1921 in Oakland, California, saw 85 women executives sign the first charter of the Soroptimist Club. By 1928, the Soroptimist International Association was formed. The individual clubs participate in and initiate civic enterprises for the social, cultural and economic betterment of their communities. They also help develop interest in national and international affairs.

The Wichita branch of the Soroptimist Club was formed in 1936 with 16 members. In the early years, the organization focused on serving the community by sponsoring lecturers and projects.

World War II began, and the club turned its attention to the nation. In 1942, the club began the Wichita Canteen which provided snacks and personal items to the soldiers departing for military duty.

In 1950 the club purchased a house at 3754 East Douglas in Wichita. The house became the club's permanent meeting place.

The club raised funds for the Eisenhower Foundation Memorial in 1954. Five pylons were erected at the memorial by the Soroptimist clubs of Kansas and the Kansas Daughters of the American Revolution.

During the years that followed, the club sponsored many projects serving the citizens of Wichita: Wichita Art Museum, Junior Achievement, Wichita Symphony, public television and others. The club has continued to sponsor speakers and projects, and has recognized many local leaders in an effort to pursue its goal of the betterment of woman and service to the community.
