Biographical / Historical

The Women Poets of New York was formed in 1924. It was disbanded in 1987 because of declining membership. No records were maintained by the organization until the 1960s and 1970s when a member, Frances Higginson Savage, compiled this scrapbook. Consequently, the scrapbook holds no documents earlier than the 1950s and no later than the 1970s. With the termination of the group, a small balance of remaining funds was given to the Poetry Society of America and member Rhina Espaillat arranged for the scrapbook to be donated to N-YHS.

(The above note is based on documents in the scrapbook.)
