On verso: "Campaign Workers from Washburn school". Mrs. Arthur (Jessica) Washburn who operated Washburn preparatory school was part of a cadre of women recruited to help with the $100,000 building fund drive. On June 2, 1914, the Y.W.C.A. of San Jose started their 10 day building campaign with a goal to raise $100,000. They succeeded and raised $105,310 which they used to build a three story building on Second and San Antonio streets in San Jose, California. From: Smith, p. 24-29.
