On March 16, 1972, Eloise Milam—the Beaumont Altmsa Club's International Relations chairman with the help of Mrs. I.B. Morris, asked Beaumont women who came from eleven different countries to talk about their experiences. The women involved in the program continued to meet informally after this first program and in October of 1972 officially organized with the following aims: "to contact and cultivate understanding and fellowship between foreign residents and Beaumonters, to entertain and help foreign visitors, and to promote foreign languages" The members of this club were active in social and civic projects in the Beaumont area. This collection contains eight scrapbooks of the International Club of Beaumont covering the years 1971- 1995. These scrapbooks document the activities of the Club and contents include correspondence, cards and postcards, membership lists, newspaper clippings, photographs, and programs.
