Creator: Q K Club

Provenance Note: Minutes, records, research papers and meeting brochures documenting the activities of the Quest for Knowledge Club (Q K Club) of Bozeman, Montana were donated to Special Collections by a vote of the club's membership on March 10, 1996. Prior to that time various papers were deposited by Merrill Burlingame and other members of the Q K Club. In 2008, 2011, and 2012 additional papers were donated to the collection by club members, and regular deposits are expected thereafter.

Historical Note: The Quest for Knowledge Club is a private organization in Bozeman, Montana which provides a forum "for the purpose of fostering specialized, intellectual discussion and thought." The Q K Club was established in 1921 by Dr. Alfred Atkinson, Rev. R.P. Smith, M.L. Wilson and others. The club's bylaws have kept membership capped at around 25 selected professionals from the Gallatin area. The club has provided a forum where Montana State University professors and local businessmen and professionals could gather to discuss the issues of the day, aspects of an individual's professional expertise, philosophy, theology, and other intellectual pursuits. The club has met between 6 and 8 times a year since the 1921. The club's year begins in the fall, during October, and it ends in the spring generally around March or April. At each meeting a professional research paper is delivered by a club member followed by criticisms of the paper prepared by selected members.

Content Description Note: The QK Club papers consist of the club's bylaws, meeting minutes, membership records, yearly bulletins and the papers and criticisms presented at their meetings. Series have been delineated by document type and have been placed in chronological order. The Bylaws series contains a copy of the original bylaws drafted in 1921. Any changes in the bylaws can be found in the Minutes. The series of membership records gives a listing of which Bozeman professionals became members of the club and how often they attended meetings. It also gives an accounting of the club's finances. The collection of Printed Materials contains the club's program bulletins and club newsclippings. The program bulletins are complete and give a listing of how often the club met during the year and of what papers were to be delivered by selected members. The final series of papers contains many of the papers delivered at the meetings as well as the criticisms which followed. The topics of the papers include history, theology, medicine, and politics. While the collection of QK Club papers is extensive, it is not quite complete. The collection currently consists of six series, with the last representing material that was accessioned in 2008.

RESTRICTIONS APPLY: Copyright for the intellectual content of any individual research paper in the records remains with the author, and permission to quote must be sought from those authors.
