Dear Ms. Brindle,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Lists of Officers and Members of State Councils of Defense, 1917-1919, the series Records Relating to State and Local Women's Committees, 1917-1918, and the series Questionnaires, 1917-1918 in the Records of the Council of National Defense (Record Group 62) that include information about membership in Women’s Committees. These records have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about these records. You also may wish to explore other records created by the Council of National Defense's Committee on Women's Defense Work in the Catalog.
Next, we located the series Summaries of State Reports, 1917-1918 in Record Group 62 that was created by the Registration Department of the Committee on Women’s Defense Work. These records have not been digitized. Please contact RDT2 with any questions you might have about them.

As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
More information about the Woman's Committee of the Council of National Defense may be available on the Library of Congress’ website, and WorldCat offers links to 75 collections of archival materials related to the Women's Committee.
Additional information about individual collections of registration cards and other records related to the Women’s Committee also may be located online, for example WWI – Women's Registration Cards and The Woman's Committee of World War I.

We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
