[85] Winship, Hon. Robert Luce, Rev. Frank O. Hall, Koda Koaymar, Dr. Parker, of Harvard College, Rev. Peter MacQueen, Brigadier-General Aaron S. Daggett, Colonel Edwin C. Bennett, and many others, whose names will readily occur to those of our members who were fortunate enough to be present at the particular entertainments at which they presided.

They were satisfied with the rather meagre reward of grateful and enthusiastic audiences, and the consciousness of having aided in the commendable objects of the club.

It has been the custom of the club now for many years to set aside one evening of the season as Ladies' Night, which should be foremost in many respects of all the club offerings. One of the features would be a banquet, followed by a varied entertainment of musical and literary excellence, the artists frequently coming from long distances to be present.

The rapid growth of the club under the vigorous administration of its first president, Mr. Mills, and his able corps of officers amply shows how well and heartily were these efforts supported by our members.

Isaiah H. Wiley was our second president, being elected December 21, 1899, and continuing in office for six years. The other officers were F. W. Marden, vice-president, A. M. Haines, secretary, F. M. Wilson, treasurer, and Rev. H. D. Maxwell, Harry Haven, and A. E.
