Hi-Fairnessee Girls Club Records

The Hi-Fairnessee Club was founded in 1931 by a group of Corpus Christi High School (now Roy Miller High School) students as a social outlet and to focus on pursuing a high school diploma.  In that era, such an educational attainment was rare in the local Hispanic community. Indicative of the aspirations of these young people, the club’s motto was:  “Reach Your Goal.”  The term Hi-Fairnessee derives from an old English word meaning “friendly.”

Although it contained both boys and girls in the beginning, in January 1932, the club was reorganized by the female students as an exclusively girls’ organization called the Hi-Fairnessee Girls Club. It focused on its members attending and graduating from High School and having a wholesome social environment. It has maintained a constant presence in Corpus Christi so that in 2011, it celebrated its 80th anniversary. 

The club membership came through invitation only and has held a yearly series of events.  Since its beginning the club has had approximately 2000 members and has included girls from all the high schools in Corpus Christi and even from high schools in the surrounding metropolitan region. Many of these girls became leaders in business, the professions, and governmental affairs of Corpus Christi.  The Hi-Fairnessee Girls Club has likewise developed into an organization that emphasizes community outreach and civic activity. 

To commemorate its 80th anniversary the group under the leadership of Hi-Fairnessee alumnus Terri Poses Longoria assembled the club’s historical records from numerous members. These documents comprise approximately six linear feet and include photographs from the 1930s forward, newspaper clippings, typed memoirs of early club members, proclamations, invitations, correspondence, annual books the club produced from 1956 forward chronicling its yearly events, as well as other historical materials.  In conjunction with the gathering and donation of these items, Dr. Thomas H. Kreneck, head of the Special Collections & Archives, conducted a series of oral history interviews with club members from the 1930s until 2011.  Altogether, these records provide a valuable resource on the history and aspirations of Mexican American women and their clubs in Corpus Christi over the last eight decades. 

The role of the Hi-Fairnessee Girls Club makes it one of the most historic groups in Corpus Christi. These records illustrate how its members comprise much of the fabric of the Corpus Christi Hispanic community, especially its middle class.

The archival processing and creation of the inventory of the Hi-Fairnessee Girls Club Records was done by Mitchell Winters in the spring semester, 2012.  Preliminary organization of the collection was accomplished by Grace Charles in 2011-2012.
