Lester Park Literary Club

In visiting the new local history librarian at the Duluth Public Library, I am uncovering even more gems about the history of writing and literature in Duluth.

One of those gems is the Lester Park Literary Club.

Literary Societies were for social polishing, personal enrichment, civic engagement, philanthropy and more. While they tended to be found on college campuses, they also grew organically in community.

I kind of wonder who these people were.

The Duluth News Tribune ran an article about the club.

I doubt that the club still exists, but I bet some of its members, or their children, still do. Can anyone tell me some stories?
