This collection contains the records of the Speakers' Club of Los Angeles for the years 1931-1935. Established in 1931, the
club aimed to facilitate cooperation between government officials and agencies and the public.
The Speakers' Club of Los Angeles was founded by Emery E. Olson in 1931 with the goals of disseminating information about
the administration of government, helping its members develop their public speaking skills, and encouraging cooperation between
government personnel and the public. Membership was limited to fifty male members, and to be eligible for membership, a prospective
member had to occupy a prominent position in public administration in a federal, state, county, district, or municipal office
or be engaged in an academic or other research pursuit concerning government affairs. The club, sponsored by USC, met the
last Wednesday of each month.
