FORTNIGHTLY CLUB MINUTES BOOK
The collection consists of a minute book for the Fortnightly Club, a literary and social
club of Lynchburg, Virginia. The Club, organized on 16 December 1890, held regular
sessions at which an original essay was presented, along with readings and recitations,
and a symposium for the discussion of various subjects. Membership was limited to 99
persons, although the recorded minutes do not indicate such a large membership.
Although the minutes end with the session of 5 April 1892, the Club continued to meet
for a period of time.
