Biographical/Historical Note

Three ladies formed the History Class of 1884. All three ladies had recently moved to Atlanta, Georgia from the northeastern United States and had all been members of a study club and discovered Atlanta did not have a similar organization. They formed the History Class because they were "missing the pleasure of studying with a group whose interests would be like their own." Additional biographical information about the History Class of 1884 has not been determined.

Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of organizational documents, programs, newspaper clippings, and membership information. There are also copies of reports presentated by Miss Tommie Dora Barker to members during club meetings.
