History

The PHILOSOPHICAL CLUB OF CLEVELAND is a convivial organization whose members meet biweekly for dinner and the reading and discussion of papers on a variety of personal interests but concentrating on the topics of sociology, business and economics, arts and humanities, government, and science. It was an outgrowth of the Cleveland Council of Sociology (later named the Chamber of Commerce Club), which had a membership of approximately 100. Feeling that large membership inhibited meaningful discussion, several members, under the leadership of Case School professors CHAS. H. BENJAMIN† and CHAS. S. HOWE† instituted the Philosophical Club during the summer of 1902. Membership constitutionally limited to 30; new candidates are nominated upon the death or resignation of a member. Members of the Philosophical Club are primarily engaged in college instruction, business, and other professional occupations. .
