The Friday Morning Club Cook Book

[Los Angeles]: The Friday Morning Club, 1924. First Edition. Octavo; 80pp. A fine copy in original tan stapled wrappers titled in black. The Friday Morning Club was founded by abolitionist, suffragist, mother, and Los Angeles homemaker Caroline Severance in 1891 and became the largest women's club in California, with membership of over 1,800 women by the 1920s. When World War I swelled their numbers the club built the current 6-story Italian Renaissance Revival style structure in 1923. The Figueroa Hotel was built directly across the street from the Friday Morning Club in 1925. It was also financed and run by women, to meet the needs of business, professional, and traveling women in Los Angeles. The two are a microcosm of the increasingly important and complex roles women were playing in American society in the 1920s. The club sold the building's title in 1977 and it is now a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. (Wiki). Item #19830
