Biographical / Historical
The Orides Club was an organization for independent women at the University of Oregon. The Club also included many female community members from Eugene, Oregon. The Orides Club was organized to provide an independent sorority atmosphere for non-affiliated girls, but grew to include independent women on the campus. They were known for giving teas, banquets, and dances. It is believed that this club was active from the middle 1930s to the middle 1970s.
