The SUNYA Women's Club was founded in 1951 by Virginia Collins as the Faculty Wives Club of the New York State College for Teachers. The club's purpose was to encourage the wives of faculty members to become acquainted. The club's name went through a number of minor changes. It was offically named the Faculty Wives Club of SUNY at Albany from 1959 through 1979 (commonly known as the SUNY Faculty Wives Club). In 1980 the club adopted the current name, the SUNYA Women's Club. Prominent club activities included sponsoring foreign/international students and helping them adjust to life in this country, organizing bloodmobiles, giving university tours, and providing volunteers for university activities. Social and fund-raising activities included running fashion shows and teas. The club also founded and ran a nursery (1951-66) in Brubacher and Sayles Halls open during club meetings. The club is now divided into ten geographical areas. Each of these areas has its own activities which aim at fostering closer ties between members of the university community. Current activities of the club include running a scholarship fund for one U.S. student per year, holding orientation for new faculty and spouses, raising funds for the Ann Lee Home by hosting a yearly fashion show, running bloodmobiles for the Red Cross, and maintaining a list of volunteers willing to work during university activities.

The files contain bylaws, committee reports, correspondence, membership directories and lists, newsletters, publicity releases relating to the club's social and community activities. The files detail the club's community activities which included sponsoring foreign students, bloodmobiles, giving university tours, and providing volunteers for university activities. Social and fund-raising activities included fashion shows and teas. The files are arranged in alphabetical order and chronologically there under by title.

The scrapbooks contain letters, membership directories, newsletters, newspaper clippings, and photographs kept by the SUNYA Women's Club. The earlier scrapbooks (especially the first one, 1953-1969) consist mainly of newspaper clippings with some letters and photographs. The last two scrapbooks contain photographs of the social functions. The scrapbooks are arranged in chronological order.

The collection has two series and is arranged alphabetically.

These records were transferred to the M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections & Archives, University Libraries, University at Albany,by SUNYA Women's Club and its predecessors.
