Administrative History

Chapter 5 of the Alice Louise Reynolds Clubs (1932- ) was a Provo, Utah chapter of a women's club created to honor Alice Louise Reynolds.

The central Alice Louise Reynolds Club was created in 1933. The original constitution was presented in September of 1933 and adopted Feb. 6, 1937. The constitution established by-laws, the executive structure, officer duties, and membership dues. The purpose of the club was stated in the constitution as to "honor Miss Reynolds, to further ideals for which she stood, to participate in cultural activities, and to maintain and develop friendships through study and social contacts." The Executive Committee was composed of a President, Vice-President, and Secretary-Treasurer. At its peak sixteen chapters of the club existed-- 14 along the Wasatch Front, a Hurricane, St. George chapter, as well as chapter in New York City.

Chapter 5 of the Alice Louise Reynolds Clubs was centered in Provo and created to uphold the ideals enumerated by the Central Committee. The constitution of the chapter stated that membership would be held at about 25, and dues were established at $1.75. Chapter offices included President, Vice-President, Secretary-Treasurer, and program committee.
