History

The study club was organized in 1915. By 1916, the meetings were set for alternate Tuesdays. The topic for the 1916/17 years was Spanish America; each meeting covered aspects such as Mexico: Aztec Civilization and Mythology or Columbia and the Panama Canal. By 1917/18, the by-laws were printed in the program. The by-laws stated that there would be five standing committees appointed by the president, membership was limited to 35 members-25 active and 10 associate, sixteen meetings held a year with two social meetings, club dues were $2.00 for members and $3.00 for associate members, music (frequently) and a luncheon accompanied the meetings. In subsequent years, the themes selected for programs included India—specific meetings might be about art and sculpture in India, religious systems in India, American drama, modern Japan (1920/21), Negro problems (1923/24), or factors to be considered in promoting peace (1925/26). Program papers were limited to twenty minutes. Speakers from outside of club membership occasionally spoke; i.e. a representative from the League of Women Voters. Current event reports might be given concerning local events, political activities, the League of Women Voters, the Women's Community Council, or the Women's Welfare League. Comments on local events such as the Walker Art Gallery being built or money being collected for wounded soldiers at Fort Snelling would be shared at the meetings.

By 1916, Heatherdale was a part of the Fifth District Minnesota Federation of Women's Club, which was a part of the General Federation of Women's Club of Minnesota. The Heatherdale Club would use the Rules of Order followed by the Fifth District Minnesota Federation of Women's Clubs. An act granting a charter to the General Federation of Women's Clubs was enacted by the congress in March 3,1901 and amended by an Act approved in April 28, 1904. The objective was to unite women's clubs and like organizations throughout the world for the purpose of their common interest in education, philanthropy, public welfare, moral values, civics, and fine art. They were to have dues and an annual convention.

Heatherdale Study Club founded in 1915 thrived until 1982 when it was disbanded. Some of the members or their relatives were active from inception and helped celebrate the organization's twenty-fifth and fiftieth anniversaries.
