Atlanta Woman's Club (primary source)
I found an article published in 1906 from the Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Vol. 28, under Woman's Work and Organizations. It is entitled "The Effect of Club Work in the South." Sage Publications and JStor made this available. This article, written by Mrs. A. O. Granger, discusses the recent arrival of woman's clubs in the South. The author argues the fact that although woman's club were new, they achieved a great deal of improvement. She states, "The efforts of the club women of Atlanta, Georgia were principally responsible for the establishment of a reformatory in their county..." and continues listing their achievements. I believe this article will provide useful information that will enable me to compare and contrast woman's club in the South in general and Georgia in particular.
