The Meaning Behind The Crest

The Club's crest was designed in 1961 during the Presidency of Ella Dunham.  A committee was appointed to design an elegant, but simple crest that would express the cultural aspects of our Club as a complete whole:  music, art, literature, and intellectual study.  This committee submitted a crest with the following details.  A book was selected as the most symbolic of all the phases of classic culture so predominant in the participating clubs and departments.  A lyre for music was selected, so we could hear and understand what the author had created, and a paint brush was selected for the art produced in so many beautiful forms, reminding us that the beauty seen is partly in him who sees it.  Mrs. Dunham's Board of Directors adopted this design as the official crest of The Woman's Club of Fort Worth.
