The Eagle Club was formed towards the end of the Second World War to allow New Zealand women to meet and share experiences with other New Zealand women who were engaged to or had married American servicemen. About 1,500 New Zealand women married Americans who came to New Zealand to train or for rest and recreation between 1942 and 1945. After the war most of these couples went to live in the United States.
