Administrative history

The Scientific Club of Winnipeg was founded in 1905 by a group of eight individuals who wanted to establish a small private society to discuss new and current scientific questions. Members met every two weeks to discuss problems and record progress. Membership was initially restricted to forty but due to popular demand gradually increased to one hundred in 1926. Meetings continued until 1981.

Custodial history

The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Marion H. Ferguson in 1981.

Scope and content

The fonds contains the constitution, membership, attendance and committee lists, notices of meetings, annual reports, papers, abstracts, questionnaires, correspondence, and minute books of the Scientific Club of Winnipeg.
