A collection of nine manuscripts by Hylah Hasbrouck (1882-1979) dealing with various subjects which were presented to 'The Fortnightly Club' based in Warwick, New York which was based along the lines of a Choutougua Club model. The club was formed around some forty local citizens who meet to give and hear educational presentations, discuss issues and socialize. Ms Hasbrouck was a long time member of the club and over the years gave presentations and wrote articles on Warwick history. Among the manuscripts is a 15 page "History ofthe Fortnightly Club of Warwick, New York" written in 1921 while she was secretary of the club. It goes into the founding members, intial committees, along with many of the topics covered and voted on. Among them were Suffrage, Prohibition, annexing the Philippine Islands, joining the League of Nations, travels, and history. Along with the club history are eight other presentations that Ms Hasbrouck made to the Club over the years (1908-1931). They are: The Evolution of Lighting, 1915 - 28 pages (12 pages on street lights coming to Warwick); Desdomona, 1908 - 10 pages; Charles Dickens, 1912 - 21 pages; Russia, 1913 -27 pages; The World's Food Problem, 1917 - 10 pages; Constantinople, 1923 - 15 pages; I.Q.s, 1928 -12 pages; The Effects of Russia's 5 Year Plan, 1931- 16 pages; along with two related items for the club, one a manuscript and the other typed. Altogether an interesting group of papers by a very bright mind. All unpublished. Bookseller Inventory # 9657
