Florentine Lyceum, member lists, 1911-1998

    The Florentine Lyceum, founded in February 1908, was a sister organization of the International Lyceum Club for Women Artists and Writers, founded in London in 1903 by Constance Smedley. It was a club for women involved in literature, art, music, science, teaching, philanthropy and public interest activities, in which they could hold meetings and engage in networking activities. The club promoted women’s education and professional participation in the workforce and also offered accommodations for foreign women travelers in Tuscany for part of its history, particularly Smedley and other British women. The historic archives of the Florentine Lyceum contain both membership lists for the club and a list of names and addresses of foreign women in Florence associated with the Lyceum.
