Administrative history

The Calgary Women's Musical Club was organized in Calgary, Alberta in 1912 by Mrs. Herbert E. Anderson, "to stimulate an interest in, to encourage the study of and to uphold the standard of good music in the community". These objectives were achieved by club sponsorship of recitals and public musical performances, and by the presentation of scholarships to music students. In 1955 the name was changed to Calgary Musical Club. The club played a leading role in Calgary's musical life until 1967, when it folded due to declining membership. For further information see Florence Musselwhite "Calgary Women's Musical Club" Canadian Encyclopedia (online).
