|Title:||Ramblers Club Collection|
|Repository:||James K. Hosmer Special Collections Library|
In September 1896 a group of Minneapolis women formed a study club. The general purpose of the club was the advancement of social, educational and benevolent objectives. Their plan was to have a travel club to discuss the topography, art, literature, and music of different countries.
In 1912 the club was incorporated and called "The Ramblers". Meetings were held once a week, in the Minneapolis Public Library from September through April. Membership was limited to 40 active and 10 associate members.
The club was involved in many charitable causes including providing entertainment for factory works, serving for the Red Cross, and donating clothes and money those affected by World War I.
