XV Club

January 20, 1938

The XV Club in Little Rock offered a presentation still fondly remembered for its title, “The Human Mind: Its Cause and Prevention.” For more than 100 years, the fifteen members of the XV Club have met fifteen times a year for dinner and discussion. Since 1904, more than a hundred prominent citizens of Pulaski County have been part of this select organization. The constitution of the club states that its “object shall be social intercourse and the discussion of literary, scientific, historical, political, and all current topics.” The minutes of the first meeting elaborate that its sessions are “cultured but not too cultured, literary but not too literary, political but not too political, scientific but not too scientific, funny but not too funny, serious but not too serious.” (more)
