Records of local Wisconsin chapters of a national women's organization, the auxiliary of the Grand Army of the Republic, established in the state in 1884. Although also concerned with general charitable endeavors and patriotic education, the corps was primarily concerned with aiding veterans and their dependents, particularly those at the Grand Army Home at King, Wisconsin. Microfilmed records include minutes of groups at Columbus, Delavan, Evansville, Fond du Lac, La Crosse, Monticello, Neenah, Omro and other communities, as well as a few charters, financial records, scrapbooks, and correspondence. From the department headquarters there are histories, sample forms, and copies of general orders and circular letters pertaining to Wisconsin. The photographs include images of individuals and groups associated with the Woman's Relief Corps. Also included are holiday cards from the corps, an envelope imprinted with “Corps 1090,” and a ribbon from a candidate for national president of the Woman's Relief Corps.
