Saturday Morning Club (Boston, Mass.)

Hide Profile

The Club was founded in 1871 by Julia Ward Howe to promote "culture and social intercourse" for her daughter Maud and other young women. The Club met for lectures by Lucy Stone, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Abba Woolson, Annie and James Fields, and professors from Harvard University and others, and to discuss the lectures. Beginning in 1874 the Club produced plays and sponsored parties; eventually presentation of original papers, many of them autobiographical or biographical, by Club members became its major function.
