Duke Surgical Women Club Records

The Duke University Medical Center Archives is happy to announce that the Duke Surgical Women’s Club Records are processed and open for research. The collection contains records pertaining to the club whose members were the spouses of interns, residents, and fellows in the Department of Surgery at Duke.

This collection documents the philanthropic and social activities of the Duke Surgical Women’s Club, including the October 1977 vote in which the club voted to change their name from Duke Surgical Wives to Duke Surgical Women. Materials include the club’s newsletter, The Probe; publicity committee materials; scrapbooks created by club members; and clippings pertaining to the club and their activities.
