|Creator:||Athenaeum Club. (Minneapolis, Minn.)|
|Title:||Athenaeum Club Collection|
|Repository:||James K. Hosmer Special Collections Library|
Organized in late 1920 by a group of young mothers who felt the desire to continue the study they left off when leaving school. The name was chosen because the word originally meant a school for the promotion of literary and scientific study. Miscellaneous subjects were studied as well as Wells' "Outline of History."
Description of Collection
One box of programs from 1924 to 1940 and a brief history of the group. Programs include clubs' creed, officers, programs and presenters for the year, and club directory.
