In 1952, 21 women, representing 10 oil and allied companies in the Sabine area met to form the Beaumont Desk and Derrick Club. The group met at the Hotel Beaumont and received their charter on March 22. The Club's objective was to promote a clearer understanding of the petroleum industry through educational programs. The Club also sought to "provide acquaintance and entertainment for the membership." The Desk and Derrick Club produced this scrapbook in its first year of existence. The collection includes newspaper clippings of the Club's organizational meetings, and original activities. Photographs represent more than half of the collection's material and cover Club meetings and activities.
