History

The Minneapolis Business and Professional Women's Club was organized June 16, 1919 as Business Women's Club of Minneapolis. The organization dinner was held at Dayton's Tea Room. Six hundred women were at the dinner, augmented by two hundred more at the business meeting following the dinner. On April 7, 1941, the name of the club was changed to The Business and Professional Women's Club of Minneapolis, Inc. The purpose of the club was "to strengthen friendly and business relations of its members." Membership was "open to women who are actively engaged or employed in business or a profession. The membership in this club shall be classified as founder, charter, active, special, and honorary." Gratia Alta Countryman, chief librarian of Minneapolis, was the club's first president. The first club magazine, Junior Partner came out on December 15, 1920. On February 14, 1921, the name of the periodical was changed to Minneapolis Business Woman.
