  • Mss 004, The Standard Club Records

    The Standard Club is the outgrowth of the Concordia Club, which was established in 1867, as Atlanta’s first Jewish social club. Originally located on the third floor of a building on the corner of Forsyth and Marietta Streets, the Standard Club would move five times in the succeeding decades. The records are composed primarily of papers relating to the land and financial transactions necessary for the club’s move in 1905 to the William C. Sanders mansion on Washington Street and for the club’s purchase in 1929, of a lot at 400 Ponce de Leon Avenue. The records consist of financial statements, correspondence, invitations, newsletter, and programs.

  • Mss 006, Jewish Progressive Club Records

    The Jewish Progressive Club was established in 1913 by Russian Jews who felt unwelcome at the Standard Club that had been founded by German Jews in 1867. Its organizers set up a holding company with a capitalization of $25,000 to invest in real estate. In 1916, they constructed on Pryor Street a clubhouse which included a hall for dances, a billiard room, and a swimming pool. It was one of the only clubs in America to express its Jewishness openly. The records consist of meeting minutes, newsletters, and newspaper clippings.
