About this collection

In 1950 the Beaumont Symphony Society was formed.  After several of its members had visited symphony orchestras in Houston and Dallas, the Society decided to sponsor numerous guest appearances of out-of-town symphonies to perform in Beaumont.  Out of this endeavor a Beaumont Symphony Orchestra was created in 1953.  A Beaumont Women's Symphony League was soon formed in 1955 to help organize major fund raising activities for the newly constituted city orchestra.  The League came to sponsor such fund raising events as the Viennese Ball, Debutante program, and the Symphony of Trees each December.  Then in 1993 the Beaumont Women's Symphony League changed its name to become the Symphony League of Beaumont.  This collection consists of scrapbooks for both the Beaumont Symphony Society and the Women's League.  The scrapbooks are arranged in chronological order and contain newspaper clippings, photographs, program guides, correspondence, and newsletters for the time period from 1950 to 1989.
