The Oliver Wendell Holmes Club was organized in 1894 in Minneapolis. The motto of the club was "sapere aude", a Latin phrase meaning "dare to discern". The club founder was Mrs. Frederick. E. Hobbs. The name of the club was chosen because two of the charter members of the club claimed kinship with Oliver Wendell Holmes. The club gave its members an opportunity to continue their education. Each year a theme for study was selected. Meetings were held at the homes of club members on a rotating schedule.
