Gregory, John Goadby, 1856- "The Parkman Club"

The Parkman Club: This article discusses the formation of the group in Milwaukee in 1895 to provide a meeting place where men who loved history could meet to read and discuss historical essays. It recounts how Gardner Stickney (1863-1965), Henry Legler (1861-1917), William W. Wight (1849-1931), Rev. John N. Davidson (1848-1945), and John G. Gregory (1856-1947), who all admired the work of historian Francis Parkman (1823-1893), originally came together following his death. It discusses the publication by them of 17 research papers, their disbanding in 1898, and the two later pamphlets issued over its name. The article includes a bibliography of the club's publications.
