  • Notes 
    • The "Berlin" YWCA was founded on April 14, 1905 by a group of women who first met at Zion Church, Weber Street, Kitchener. Following the example of groups in other cities, these women wanted to set up an organization which would provide for both the spiritual and the physical needs of young women--particularly those women and young girls who were coming from rural areas to work in the rapidly industrializing Kitchener area at the turn of the century. To serve this purpose the YWCA set up a wide variety of programmes and facilities for working women as well as programmes for students and mature women.

      The fact that these women were undertaking to establish a YWCA did not go without comment in the community--the local YMCA had just closed due to monetary difficulties and the men felt it would be impossible to finance the new organization!

      The founding Board of Directors consisted of the following women:

      President: Mrs. Mary Kaufman
      Vice President: My. W. H. Becker
      Recording Secretary: Mrs. C. L. Laing
      Corresponding Secretary: Mrs. E. P. Clement
      Assistant Secretary: Miss Alice Moyer
      Treasurer: Mrs. W. H. Breithaupt
      Directors:

      Mrs. J.F. Honsberger
      Mrs. G. Harrison
      Mrs. W.A. Bradley
      Mrs. W.M. Cram
      Mrs. W.L. Schmidt
      Mrs. J.C. Breithaupt
      Mrs. E.D. Heist
      Miss M. Tier
      Miss A.A. Uttley
      Mrs. W.H. Bowlby
      Mrs. S. Rumpel
      Mrs. R.L. Janzen
