Collection is comprised of eleven scrapbooks that document the history of the Las Vegas Literary Club, a social and cultural organization that was formed in 1937 by LDS members Della Wittwer, Louella Thornton, and Erma Stewart. The club members celebrated anniversaries and weddings and also mourned losses together. In addition to regular meetings, two socials were held each year to entertain members and their husbands. The scrapbooks contain photographs and newspaper clippings that focus on the clubs activities, events and celebrations between the years 1973-1994. One bound volume documents the clubs early history dating back to 1937 and includes autobiographies of members. In addition to the scrapbooks, two record books contain meeting minutes, membership lists, programs, and financial records from the years 1976-1980.
