Summary
This collection includes a typed copy from R. Norris Shreve in Lafayette, Indiana on 1967/11/10 regarding the history of the club and descriptions of some members
Biographical or historical data
The Parlor Club of Lafayette, Indiana was founded in 1877 with Mrs. Helen M. Gougar being one of the founders. According to its bylaws, "The usual literary exercises of each evening shall be an essay and a discussion." The constitution allowed for no more than 30 active members, and there was a desire the membership be balanced between the University and town members. After one discussion of an essay which led to the throwing of furniture, it was decided that there would no longer be discussions of essays. A separate group, led by someone in the Parlor Club, instituted the discussion of essays, with the essay to be written and read.Harvey W. Wiley, a member, became famous as Chief Chemist of the Bureau of Chemistry in Washington, D.C. He is know as the father of the Pure Foods and Drug Act.
