January 28, 1912 - Progress Club's Fortieth Anniversary
From: "The Enduring Community" by William B. Helmreich
The Progress Club was founded in 1872 by seventeen young Jewish men. The original name for the club was the "No Name Club". This was done to arouse the inquisitiveness of non-members and make them anxious to join.
