    Seeking information about Phillis Wheatley Clubs in Ohio

    Ric Sheffield Newbie

      I am looking for information about a "colored women's club" known as the Phillis Wheatley Club.  Chapters of this club were organized in some rural communities in Ohio.  I have a news clipping of one such club in Coshocton, Ohio from the 1940s and hope to find a photograph of the members, a club roster, and meeting minutes.  The club in Coshocton was sponsored by and met in the YWCA of that small town.  I would appreciate any assistance about such clubs in rural Ohio towns.
