The Society of Citizenship was organized in 1920 by Mrs. Mary D. LaRue. It was federated with the state and district in 1922 and with the general federation in 1929. The club believed that women should more thoroughly understand the history, basic principles and functions of government. The purpose of the club was to build up within its own membership a nucleus of vitally interested and correctly informed opinions on questions that concern the United States as a World Power in war and peace. The club also endeavored to promote an intelligent and loyal citizenry and to arouse apathetic citizens to an understanding of cause and effect in world affairs. Meetings were held at the Nicollet Hotel. In about 1944 the meeting location moved to the Alice Ames Winter House at 1630 Hennepin Avenue. Meetings included speakers and musical performances. Club members were also active in charity organization including the Red Cross.
