History

The Minneapolis Social Club, originally known as the Lonesome Club, was organized in September 1924 as a dance group for middle-aged men and women who enjoyed "old-time music." Membership was restricted to people over 28 years old and a lifetime membership cost one dollar.

The club was formally incorporated in 1937. Its stated nature was to "the promotion of sociaibility and friendship among people of middle age who are eligible for membership." It was known for holding regular dances, card parties, picnics, and other similar social functions.

By the late 1960s and 1970s, membership was in decline and the club's regular dances had been discontinued in favor of occasional card playing. Many of the club's officers were in advanced age and wanted to resign their positions. In February 1973, the club's officers officially disbanded the club.


Collection Description

The collection consists of one box containing financial records, membership listings, meeting minutes, and other items from the Minneapolis Social Club. Many of the ledgers of the meeting's minutes also include clippings from local newspapers on the club, obituaries for the club's former members, and other items.
