The Caxton Club, located in Chicago, was founded in 1895. It is a private social organization and bibliophilic society bringing people together from different backgrounds who have a communal love of books and literary study. The club was named after William Caxton, a noted printer during the fifteenth century.
While the club did not allow female membership until 1976, it has gone on to have three female presidents. The club holds dinner and lunch programs, sponsors various events and exhibitions, and publishes books and a monthly newsletter, the Caxtonian.
