History

Organized October 26, 1897 by a group of south Minneapolis neighborhood women. They were interested in serious study, thus sending out their argosy -- their ship -- to bring back to them knowledge of different countries, geography, art, literature, and outstanding characters. Programs were given by club members and in later years by University professors.
