Calgary Knights of the Round Table fonds
63 cm of textual records
The Knights of the Round Table were organized as a service club in the USA. An organizer visited Calgary, Alberta in the mid-1920s and helped form a local club. Founding members were Alexander Calhoun, A.B. McKay, Dr. G.D. Stanley, Dr. Richardson and George Clarke. By 1930 the club steered away from the nationalistic expression of the parent organization. A prime goal of the club is to provide a forum for speakers from all walks of life. The high quality of speakers often attracted press coverage. Over the years speakers have come from within the club or have been invited. Women were admitted to membership in 1975.
Scope and Content:
The fonds consists of minutes (1956-1979), notices of meetings, including brief biographies of guest speakers (1957-2006), membership records (1925-1981), procedure manuals (1960-1973), and attendance registers (1929-1982).
