Description/Abstract

In 1991 the Portfolio Club still thrives. Despite the social upheavals of the 20th century—especially the evolution of the role of women—the Club has maintained its intellectual vitality, while preserving a quality of graciousness that reminds one of a time long past. In 1990 the Club gave Syracuse University its archives from its founding through 1978. This article highlights much of the Club's history, drawing from sources from Syracuse University's Special Collections.
