The United Spanish War Veterans Holland Camp No. 38 was founded in Holland, Michigan, in 1904 for veterans that had participated in that conflict to provide support and comradery to its members. The club provided forms of welfare and representation to their fellow men, as well as those in their respective communities, including assisting with hospital bills and pension receipts, organizing and participating in Memorial Day services, and even buying the occasional bag of groceries or a bouquet of flowers for a fellow comrade’s wife. The collection includes records of the auxiliary, Constitution of the United Spanish War Veterans, correspondence, encampment information, meeting minutes, membership information, photographs, and a poster.
