Creator:Coterie. (Minneapolis, Minn.)
Title: Coterie Collection
Quantity: 1.0 boxes
Repository: James K. Hosmer Special Collections Library


The Coterie lays claims to greater age than of any other club in Minneapolis except the Tuesday Club. The Coterie's inception dates from the fall of 1880.

During the whole of the club's history, literature had been the one unvarying pursuit and every suggestion that the club depart from this study even for a time, was met with disfavor. The 43 years devoted to literature had proved to many a liberal education. In 1927 there were still in the club membership many who were charter members.

The Coterie joined the Woman's Council in April, 1892, and a few days later the General Federation of Women's Clubs, joining the states federation in 1895. (History excerpted from 1927 newspaper clipping, M/A 2000.111.01)
