ABSTRACT

Not so long ago, Mr. George Crossette undertook to look up the lives and various backgrounds of the 37 founders of the National Geographic Society. This led him to the assumption, somewhat erroneous as it turned out, that it would be not too hard a chore to do the same thing for the founding fathers of the Cosmos Club of Washington, DC; in fact, he found a number of men who were founders in both groups. Although clubs of all kinds have never found the same place in American urban life that they have in London and, in Britain generally, the Century Club of New York and the Cosmos Club are notable exceptions.

Reading through the short biographical essays and seeing the pictures of the venerable fathers of the Cosmos Club is a little like digging into a newly discovered book of ancestors or looking at someone's old family album.
