Women's Travel Club
Modeled on the men-only Harvard Travellers Club, the goal of the Women's Travel Club was to provide a venue for women who had taken unusual trips to share their experiences and provide help and advice to other female travelers. The club held monthly and annual meetings, usually with a speaker. In its early years, the club frequently had guest speakers who were not members, including Margaret Mead, Jane Goodall, and Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen). During World War II, the club formed a Red Cross Sewing Unit, which met weekly to sew layettes; members also invested in U.S. War Bonds. In 1968, the club began making travel grants to women wishing to study or do research abroad. As of 2014, the club was still active.
