Ohio Girls' Club of Washington, D.C. picnic
Description: Members and guests are pictured attending an Ohio Girls' Club of Washington, D.C. picnic hosted by Grace Young on June 23, 1934. Founded in 1918, the club provided women who were natives of Ohio, but lived and worked in Washington, D.C., with the opportunity "of forming friendships, of making their social lives more pleasant, and of entertaining soldiers, especially from Ohio, stationed in the vicinity." Social events, activities for returning servicemen, and supporting charitable causes were among the club's activities. The club disbanded in 1982. Pictured in the first row are: Fausta Puffenberger, Mary Kinney, Ruby Corbin, Anna Parks, Leona Shields and Fanny Davis; in the second row, Grace Young and Martha Montgomery; and in the third row, Arista Huber, Helen Wangness, Margaret and Emma Charters, Adah Fink, and Mrs. Ealy.
