Biographical / Historical

The Monday Evening Club was founded in October 1896, by Sarah S. Fuller and George S. Wilson of the Associated Charities. The club was organized for professional social workers, but by 1898, membership rules were changed to admit volunteer social workers. By 1909, the club had become a clearinghouse for those interested in social work. One of the declared objectives of the club was the “coordination of effort to obtain for the city of Washington the best possible program of social services.” The club was involved in numerous social service efforts including the establishment of the Women’s Police Bureau; revised school attendance and child labor laws; the establishment of Gallinger Hospital; the expansion of the DC Public Library, and the revitalization of the Health Department.
