TitleSC98 Old Men's Association Records Finding Aid
AbstractThe Old Men's Association was a social organization that met for 25 years in Kansas City beginning in 1893 up to 1918. Men had to be 60 years old or older in order to qualify for membership. Prominent names associated with the group include Alexander Holland, Judge Stephen Twiss, S. M. Philbrook, Frank Holsinger, Edward L. Dimmitt, Thomas Lewis, Judge W. R. Brown, W. F. Cloud, and many others.

The collection contains the records of the Association and includes two record books (1893-1918) which contain the organization's minutes, membership rolls, financial accounts, newspaper clippings, and some ephemeral items. Programs included local speakers although Ezra Meeker of Oregon Trail fame also appeared at a meeting in 1908.
