The Club motto was a quote from Samuel Johnson: "He who from travel would bring home knowledge, must take knowledge with him." Charter Members included Mrs. Charles L. (Ella Henderson) Bartholomew and Mrs. George (Cora McDuffee) Beach. Meetings were held at the Public Library in Minneapolis on alternate Fridays from September until April. Membership was limited to 25 women.
