Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Highland Girls' Club Munitions Workers was founded in 1916 for girls brought from Stornoway to Glasgow by the Board of Trade to perform essential munition work during the first World War. The Club's purpose was to provide a place for the girls to meet and to secure the "best methods for promoting their social welfare". Early meetings took place in the Christian Institute on Bothwell Street and 106 West George Street, Glasgow. Membership cost a fee of one shilling in 1916 and members had to sign a register on entering the club. It is unclear as to when the Club disbanded but the minutes incate that the Club continued on after 1923 when this minute book ceases.
