2Title:  Women's Art Club of Cleveland Records     
 Creator:  Women's Art Club of Cleveland 
 Dates:  1912-1962 
 Abstract:  The Women's Art Club of Cleveland was established in 1912 in the Gage Gallery as the first exclusively female art organization in Cleveland, Ohio. The club formed when the Bohemian Club split into a men's club, The Arts Club (later The Cleveland Society of Artists), and a women's club, The Women's Art Club of Cleveland. The mission of the club was to bring female artists together in order to facilitate community and higher artistic ideals. Also, the club wanted to advance the artistic interests of Cleveland through educational programs and exhibitions of members' artwork. Further, they sought recognition, respect, and support based on their exhibitions from the Cleveland community with an interest in the city's cultural growth. Women became members by filing applications and being voted in by the club. The four classes of membership (active, associate, sustaining, and life) were based on whether or not the woman created artwork. Active members created artwork, but associate members did not. Associate members had an interest in art, but did not vote or hold office. Sustaining members were active or associate members who toke a larger financial responsibility in the club. Also, life members were active or associate members who paid a designated fee. The Board of Trustees had ultimate control over the club. The Trustees elected from among themselves the President, Vice-President, Recording and Corresponding Secretary, and Treasurer. Various committees conducted the activities of the club. Exhibitions and social events were the main focus of the club. The collection consists of scrapbooks.

10Title:  Judy Chicago Dinner Party Site Project Records     
 Creator:  Judy Chicago Dinner Site Project 
 Dates:  1975-2001 
 Abstract:  "The Dinner Party" Site Project (DPSP) first formed as the Ohio-Chicago Arts Project, Inc., (O-CAP) as an endeavor to display Judy Chicago's (b. 1939) controversial magnum opus, The Dinner Party, 1979, in northeast Ohio. Judy Chicago initially conceived "The Dinner Party" to be a piece of art to commemorate and inform people about women's roles in history in 1974. It evolved into a multi-media installation which generated controversy because of its use of vulvar forms in its representation of historical female figures. The work served to solidify Chicago as a pioneer in the Feminist Art movement. "The Dinner Party" seats both mythological and historical women at a dinner table in the shape of an equilateral triangle with each side containing thirteen place settings. The place settings pay tribute to such figures as, Hatshepsut, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Blackwell, Virginia Wolfe, and Georgia O'Keeffe. Chicago sought not only to represent women, but chose art forms that have been traditionally thought of as women's craftwork, including painted china ceramics and needlework. A Heritage Floor which contains the names of 999 additional women on porcelain tiles complemented the 39 place settings. Before arriving in Cleveland, "The Dinner Party" exhibited in San Francisco (1979), Houston (1980), Boston (1980), and Brooklyn (1980). Efforts to mount the first Midwest exhibit of "The Dinner Party" in the Akron, Ohio, area began in the summer of 1980 when representatives of eight women's groups (Akron chapter of the National Organization for Women, Adult Development Committee of the Institute for Life-Span Development of the University of Akron, Akron Rape Crisis Center, Akron Task Force for Battered Women, Ohio Black Women's Leadership Caucus, Planned Parenthood Association of Summit County, Women's Caucus for Art, and Akron Women's Network) held a meeting during which they formed the Steering Committee of O-CAP. O-CAP added more members from the northeastern Ohio area to the group and incorporated shortly thereafter as a non-profit organization. Initially, O-CAP sought to bring "The Dinner Party" to Akron and have it exhibited at the E. J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall in the spring of 1981. Ultimately, O-CAP ended up mounting the exhibit in Cleveland Heights at the former Temple on the Heights on Lee Road. "The Dinner Party" opened its Midwest premiere on May 8, 1981 and ran through August 16, 1981. The exhibit proved popular and profitable, the profits being donated to various local women's organizations. In 1985, O-CAP disbanded due to a lack of activity. However, five years later, some members of O-CAP reunited to plan and celebrate the 10th Anniversary of "The Dinner Party's" exhibition in Cleveland. At that time a search was underway to secure a permanent display site for the exhibit. The convergence of these two events prompted some former members of O-CAP to re-establish it under the new title of "'The Dinner Party' Site Project" (DPSP) in 1991. DPSP sought to secure a permanent site for the exhibit in the Cleveland area. Mickey Stern, a founder of O-CAP, became the President of DPSP in 1992. Beginning in 1993, DPSP hosted an annual International Women's Day reading of the biographies of the women represented in "The Dinner Party" as an effort to enlighten the public about the exhibit and, more generally, the marginalized histories of the women it depicted. DPSP hosted various other related events throughout its existence, including art auctions, but failed to secure permanent housing for "The Dinner Party" in Cleveland. The group disbanded in 2001. In 2002, "The Dinner Party" found a permanent home at The Brooklyn Museum in New York where it has been on permanent display since 2007 at the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. The collection consists of articles of incorporation, budgets, bylaws, correspondence, flyers, journals, ledgers, legal documents, lists, magazine articles, minutes, mission statements, newsletters, newspaper clippings, notes, organizational documents, press releases, proposals, reports, rosters, and tax records.

15Title:  Odette V. and Paul Wurzburger Family Papers     
 Creator:  Wurzburger, Odette V. and Paul Family 
 Dates:  1927-2006 
 Abstract:  Odette Valabregue Wurzburger was a French resistance fighter during World War II, a lawyer and teacher, and an active community leader, especially in the arts. She was born in Avignon, France, in 1909, and she died in Cleveland in 2006. Her husband, Paul Wurzburger was an entrepreneur, inventor, patron of the arts, and honorary consul of France. He was born in 1904 in Lyon, France, and died in 1974 in Cleveland. He entered the United States in 1941 and became a citizen in 1946. He became honorary consul of France in Cleveland in 1962. Paul's father, Hugo Wurzburger, was born in 1887 in Heilbronn, Germany, and died in Cleveland in 1952. Paul's mother, Marguerite Bacharach Wurzburger, was born in Lyon, France, in 1882 and died in Cleveland in 1967. The couple escaped Nazi-occupied France in 1941 and went first to Cuba, arriving in the United States in August 1942. Hugo Wurzburger was a successful industrialist and inventor. He invented several synthetic fabrics and also manufactured pipe fittings, the patents for which were licensed to Cleveland's Weatherhead Company before World War II. Paul's first wife, Margarethe (later Marguerite) Wolf (1900-1976), was born in Germany and died in Cleveland. The couple lived in Liechtenstein in the early 1930s and came to the United States in 1941, where he continued his father's association with the Weatherhead Company. With degrees from universities in Strasbourg and Frankfort, Paul Wurzburger held patents for various valves in the United States, Canada, Germany, Holland, Great Britain, Australia, Japan, France, Sweden, Italy and Belgium. Throughout his career as an engineer, he was associated with three different firms: Ermeto, Flomet, and Patex. Among other activities, Paul Wurzburger was a trustee for the Salk Institute of Biological Studies and the Musical Arts Association. He was Vice-President of the Federation of French Alliances in the United States for the Central States and chairman of the board of Maison Francaise de Cleveland. He was also on the Case Western Reserve University Board of Overseers and a commander in the French Legion d'honneur. Odette Valabregue earned a law degree from the University of Montpellier in 1930 and was a judge in France prior to the German occupation. As part of her legal career in pre-war France, she was a strong advocate of social services for children. From 1943 to 1945 she was a volunteer in the French underground, saving the lives of many Jews, including her own parents. Her pseudonym during her work with the French resistance was Anne-Marie; under this name, she published a brief account of her experiences during and immediately after the war. This account appeared in French in 1945, as a chapter in a book edited by Suzanne Normand, Liberte Ship (Paris: Editions NAGEL, 1945). Odette Valabregue came to the United States in 1960 when she married Paul Wurzburger, after his divorce from Marguerite (Wolf) Wurzburger. Odette Wurzburger continued her professional activities in Cleveland and became an active member of the community. A member of the American Bar Association, she taught classes for the Case Western Reserve University School of Law and was an adjunct professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in San Diego. She spoke often on law and biology and the human genome.
