Papers of the Innominate Club (Liverpool)
Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Innominate Club was founded in December 1930, as a dining/debating society for medical practitioners. For the first few years of its existence meetings were held in members' homes, and subsequently in various Liverpool University premises. At each meeting a paper is given, usually of a non-medical nature, and a discussion is then held. Currently the Club, which is still thriving, meets six times per year.
