Records date past the life of the club; after the club disbanded, members continued to meet through 2001 and the records reflect these continued meetings.

Administrative history

The Detroit Club was formed in 1882, when, lawyer Samuel Douglas and banker/broker James T. Campbell decided to rent a small house in an adjacent Detroit neighborhood; hire a fine chef and run a club where like-minded peoples could meet to dine, exchange news, conduct business, and promote fellowship. Douglas and Campbell were able to convince 100 other associates of the idea and The Detroit Club was born.

Those who formed the club had a clubhouse in mind; however it would not be ostentatious, yet would have certain features including a small attached establishment for members to enjoy certain privileges, and include a Women’s Department. The original club was a little wooden house on Lafayette between Wayne and Cass. Early members included those of Detroit’s elite businesses, including Russell A. Alger, Hugh McMillan and James B. Book.

Within the first year, the club had outgrown its original clubhouse, and they moved into the home of one of the members at Wayne and Fort Streets. The club continued to flourish, and in 1892, a four-story Romanesque Revival style structure designed by Wilson Eyre Jr. of Philadelphia, was built at the corner of Fort and Cass.

A number of pivotal events occurred over the years, including the organizational meeting of the Automobile Club of Detroit in 1902; in 1922, Michigan Governor Alex Groesbeck held strategy sessions to decide whom to tap to fill the open Senate seat due to Truman Newberry’s resignation, ultimately choosing James Couzens. In 1930, Governor Fred Green met with Detroit bank presidents to work out details for closing the city’s banks, and during 1944 and 1945, Henry Ford II regained control of The Ford Motor Company from Harry Bennett. Later, Lee Iacocca used the club to launch his campaign to restore the Statue of Liberty and develop Ellis Island into a museum. Along with the significant events, many dignitaries visited the clubhouse including Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Herbert Hoover, Gerald Ford, and other influential people such as Prince William of Sweden, Empress Zita of Austria, the Duke of Windsor, Margaret Truman, Charles Lindbergh, Gene Tunney, Admiral Richard Byrd, John D. Rockefeller, and Edward G. Robinson.

Membership had reached its peak in the 1950s with over 1,000 members, however; membership began to transform when the first African American and Jewish men were admitted to the club in the late 1960s. By the early 1970s, membership had declined to approximately 800 members, and by the 1980s, and membership began to significantly wane. After years of a being a traditional men’s only club, the first woman walked through the front door in 1972, when Myra Wolfgang accepted an invitation for lunch. Membership for women began in 1976, when attorney Sharon Wood became the first female member.

Membership has significantly declined since the late 1990s, and the financially strapped club sold their Cass Avenue building to longtime member Nick Abraham and his life Lorna. The Abraham’s will maintain the structure and utilize it for private events.

Scope and Contents note

The collection of the Detroit Club documents the activities of the social club from its inception in 1882, until its disbandment in 1996. After the club disbanded, members continued to meet through 2001 and the records reflect these continued meetings. This collection is a comprehensive documentation of the club’s activities. The collection is arranged into three main record groups: Administrative records,  Financial records, and  Membership records. Each record group documents the activities of the organization and have been further arranged into series and sub-series. Files within each record group and series have been arranged alphabetically; with the exception of oversized materials and digitized materials.

The FINANCIAL record group documents the monetary transactions and fiscal responsibilities of the club, and have been further arranged into six series: Annual Reports; Appraisal Reports; Artwork; Audited Financial Statements; Stock Certificates, and Stock Certificates Returned.  Annual Reports document the club’s fiscal activities throughout the preceding years, from 1906-2002, with subsequent gaps from 1910-1913, and from 1924-1959. The  Appraisal Reports series documents the club’s artwork collection, and includes documentation regarding purchased and donated works, as well as includes artist name, title, dimensions, and monetary appraisal from 1940-1998. Furnishings and property appraisals are also reported.  Artwork series documents the art collection as well as loans, and sale of works. Records were created for insurance appraisals.  Audited Financial Statements include a complete run of statements from 1973 through 1989, and record the club’s financial activities. Lastly, the series of  Stock Certificatesand  Stock Certificates Returned, documents the legal member ownership of the club from 1883 through 1999.

The MEMEBERSHIP record group expansively documents membership procedures from 1883 through 1996, and include applications for membership, member acceptance and resignations; membership proposals; inventory cards with name, occupation, date of birth and death; and membership committee meeting records from the mid-1980s and mid-1990s.
