The Saint Anthony Falls Club was organized in 1897 and federated in 1903. The purpose of the club was educational study. The official colors of the club were brown and maize. Each year a theme for study was selected. Meetings were held twice a month from September through April. Meetings were held every other Monday afternoon. (Note: from about 1932 until 1940 meetings were held on Tuesday afternoons). Meetings were held at the home of one of the members on a rotating schedule. In about 1938 a Drama Section, a Poetry Section and an International Section were added. These sections each met separately.
