Description

A list of magazine subscriptions held by members of the Oviedo Magazine Club, which would later become the Oviedo Woman's Club (OWC), in 1916. Subscriptions included The Century Magazine for Mrs. Crawford, Harper's Magazine for Mrs. Stoner, Pictorial Review for Mrs. West, Good Housekeeping for Ms. Lawton, Munsey's Magazine for Mrs. Cushing, and The Delineator for Mrs. Dixon.

The Oviedo Woman's Club was founded in 1906 as the Oviedo Magazine Club by seven charter members: H. B. McCall, Edith Meade, Georgia Lee Wheeler, Lillian Lee Lawton, Mattie Aulin Wheeler, Milcah Yonge, and Mary King. The first clubhouse was constructed in 1914 and also served as Oviedo's first library. In 1916, the club joined the FFWC and officially changed its name to the Oviedo Woman's Club. In 1923, the woman's club was federated under the umbrella of the GFWC. A new clubhouse was built in 1961 on property donated by R. L. Croom, a former member, which is located at 414 King Street. The Oviedo Woman's Club is involved in many civic projects, including the annual Great Day in the Country Arts and Crafts Festival, the Spring Fundraiser, Tasting Luncheons, and Celebrate Spring Teas.
