The Ladies of the Round Table were established in 1909. Their name came from the Knights of the Round Table. Their club motto was, "Its object shall be to pursue such a course of study as shall at different periods be elected by the members, for mutual benefit and instruction." Prominent subjects of study included countries of the world, United States, nature study, Minnesota, and miscellaneous topics. Moreover, the group also partook in a number of community and charity efforts, both local and international. Some efforts included supporting a French orphan and contributing to the World War I relief program. This club was part of the larger Minnesota Federation of Women's Clubs. The membership consisted of women from the Minneapolis area.
