Foxon Homemakers Club Records

Identifier: 1990-0033

Scope and Content

The records of the Foxon Homemakers Club, an associate member of the New Haven County Extension Service, consist of by-laws and guidelines, correspondence, membership lists, miscellaneous papers, publicity material, descriptions of programs and projects, and reports of meetings and activities. The collection offers a perspective on homemakers' organized group activities in Connecticut for a period of sixty years as well as some insights into the wider culture. The correspondence reveals that after World War II, paid employment outside of the home increasingly precluded attendance at the club's meetings and programs. The focus of the programs and projects suggest some of the larger society's concerns, as well as establishing a timeline for the introduction of certain technological innovations into Connecticut life.
