Name of creator
The Kitchener-Waterloo Council of Friendship was formed as a separate group in 1943. Its beginnings were in the International Club of the Kitchener-Waterloo YWCA headed by Mrs. W.P. Clement. Its membership was made up of Canadians, other national groups, community groups, service clubs, and women's organizations. Minnie Maines was part of the Executive Committee.
The Council offered language classes, a scholarship fund, special events, and other activities.
Scope and content
Fonds contains a notebook and records collected by Minnie O'Hara Maines from 1948 to 1971 in her capacity as a member of the Executive of the Kitchener-Waterloo Council of Friendship. There are blank forms regarding tax deductions and employment contracts for English-speaking classes, along with newspaper clippings that cover registration for and advertisements of these classes in Kitchener. The fonds also includes other promotional pamphlets and cards for the classes and for the Council in general, along with lists of winners for the Council's scholarship funds and names of contributors.
Immediate source of acquisition
Donated by Colleen Gildner. Mrs. F. Maines was her mother who was part of the Executive for the Kitchener-Waterloo Council of Friendship.
