Administrative history

This organization resulted from the amalgamation of the Soldiers' Comfort Club (founded 1915) and the Overseas Auxiliary [1916]. It sent newsletters and gift parcels to University of Alberta students on active service during World War I. The contents of the parcels were provided by fundraising activities and by an active group of knitters among the staff, spouses and students. The newsletter provided a clearinghouse for the soldiers' letters and news of their fellows.
