Organizational History

The Lyceum Club was established in March 1931 by Dr. May Agness Hopkins, Dr. Juanita Wade, Mrs. Cloyd Read, and Alma Thurman. The group was established as a place where women could meet and discuss literature, art, music, and drama. The name Lyceum was chosen after Aristotle's school. The club is still active and in 2006 celebrated its 75th anniversary.
