Nevada Federation


​Republican women

The records of the Nevada Federation of Republican Women (NvFRW) were donated to the University of Nevada, Reno Special Collections Department in 1995 by former NvFRW President Patsy Pumphrey. The collection consists of two cubic feet of records which date from 1969-1995. There are no restrictions on their use.

There is very little in regards to actual documentation from the founding of the NvFRW in 1950 through the 1970’s. The following is information compiled from materials found at the UNR archives; records given to me by various individuals, including Edna Henner’s collection (former NvFRW Historian, CCRW member and historian); brief histories compiled by individual clubs for both the NFRW in 1972 and the 1975 25th NvFRW anniversary celebration; and, records of the NvFRW in my possession dating from 1979 through 2009. All materials will be submitted to the UNR archives at the completion of this project. All compiled information will be posted on the NvFRW website  It will be updated/corrected as additional information becomes available.
