Biographical / Historical

These clubs were all founded by Columbus, Georgia women to provide opportunities to learn and to discuss various topics. The 1897 constitution of the Students' Club of Columbus, Georgia, for example, states “With a desire for wider culture, mutual enjoyment, and by the friction of mind upon mind to keep in touch with the progress of thought, and to stimulate one another to the noblest ambitions, we . . . do form ourselves into a Club. ” The rest express similar motivations.
