The Spartan Wives Club started in 1946 or 1947 as an organization for women who were either married and attending Michigan State College (now Michigan State University) or married to men who were attending Michigan State. The organization was a social network for wives who planned family picnics and helped arrange baby sitting for children. They also volunteered in the community holding classes, hosting Christmas parties for underprivileged children, and sponsoring a mobile x-ray unit for tuberculosis checks.
