Germania Club scrap book

 Item
Identifier: Case-+V-208-326
Abstract A large scrapbook containing material on the activities of this music-appreciation club for German-Americans. Chartered in 1869 with possible origins in the organization of a choir to sing at President Lincoln's lying-in- state in Chicago, the Germania Club became a meeting place for Chicago's German elite. The name was changed to the Lincoln Club during World War I and changed back in 1921.
Dates: 1921-1931
