1939 - 2000 Faculty Women's Club (FWC)

16 May 2001 - present  Queen's Women's Association (QWA)

Thanks go to Mary Balanchuk, FWC President 1998 to 2001 for researching and writing the Brief History of the Faculty Women's Club (FWC) in 2000. The document was presented to the University in 2000 when the Faculty Women's Club (FWC) changed its name to the Queen's Women's Association (QWA) in 2001. The major material for the website is based on Mary`s contribution.

Shirley Brooks-Purkis, who joined the FWC in 1941, left Kingston but returned to join in recent years, also added oral memories of her time with the FWC and QWA,

Material was arranged for this Website by Mary Zureik, President 2006-08
