Collection Description

Historical Note

The Twentieth Century Coterie was a social and literary women's club first organized in 1906 in Atlanta, Georgia. It was known as the Minerva Coterie until 1910. The objective of the group, as stated in the earliest constitution was "mutual helpfulness in study and research, and social intercourse." Each year, the coterie devoted study to a specific topic or region, ranging from Japan to Scotland to the South as portrayed in literature. Group membership was limited to 25 members.

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of the records of the Twentieth Century Coterie from 1906-1934, including correspondence, constitutions, financial records, minute books, and yearbooks. The first constitution was handwritten between 1906 and 1910, as it bears the club's first name, the Minerva Coterie. The second constitution bears the Twentieth Century Coterie name. The minute books document the club's activities, including subjects of discussion, papers read, and musical entertainment. The club discussed a wide variety of subjects, including literature, geography, history, and philosophy. The yearbooks provide a list of members and committee assignments, in addition to lists of each meeting's agenda and hostess. The collection also includes some correspondence to and from club officers and other regional and national women's clubs.
