An unrecorded pamphlet containing numerous "historical sketches" of the various groups within the 13th District Baptist Association Women's Auxiliary in Shreveport, Louisiana. The work contains a history of the Antioch Baptist Church Missionary Society which began in 1889, and sketches on the women of the Broadway Missionary Church Mission Band, the Lakeside Baptist Church, the Little Union Missionary Baptist Church Mission Society and Woman's Missionary Union, and many, many more groups from area churches. The text is illustrated throughout with dozens of photographs of notable officers, members, and other figures within the groups, various churches, and more. An excellent snapshot of Shreveport-area women's church groups, with no copies in OCLC.
