by Tricia
(Boston, MA, USA)

Presented by Dr. Dorothy E. King

Wednesday, May 18 6:00 - 7:30 pm
NEHGS, 99-101 Newbury Street, Boston

Created in 1899, the Saturday Evening Girls began as a reading group at the North Bennet Street Industrial School in Boston. It expanded into an educational club of the Boston Public Library and became a progressive movement to educate and socialize young women in the North End. Best known for establishing Paul Revere Pottery, the organization also published a newsletter, sponsored ethnic and cultural events, and trained women for leadership responsibilities in local and broader arenas. Join Dr. Dorothy E. King, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Penn State Harrisburg, to learn more about the organization and the young Jewish and Italian women who participated in the program.

Dr. King is hoping to locate and interview the descendants of the Saturday Evening Girls for her research. If you have a grandmother, great aunt, or cousin who might have been a member of the group, please email her at
