The Victory Study Club was begun in 1942 in San Angelo, TX when a group of young women petitioned the Literary Review Club to sponsor a junior club. The first meeting was held at Massie Clubhouse with 15 charter members. Their motto is “The path to Victory is learning.” In its early days it helped with the USO and now spends its time learning about different cultures around the world. The collection contains seven boxes on the history of the club dating from 1942 to 1987, a box of records dating from 1959 to 1993, awards, booklets dating from 1943 to 1997, by-laws, membership information, handbooks, duty lists, club reports from 1962 to 1992, photos, minutes, and miscellaneous materials, including a journal, a cash book, and guest books.
