Scope and arrangement
The Contemporary Club collection includes minutes, membership lists, and correspondence detailing the workings of the club. Minutes before 1959 are extremely detailed and include all business conducted, members present, new members accepted, the names of speakers, and often a summary of the topic and discussion. Correspondence, primarily from 1971-1992, includes communication from the club's leadership, letters of resignation from members, and exchanges regarding the club's ongoing viability and future. There is also a folder of annotated constitutions and membership lists, all of which date from the 1970s.
Boxes one and two contain minutes and correspondence; box three contains the club's gavel.
