The Colony Club of New York




A membership booklet for The Colony Club of New York (chartered December 7, 1903) for the year 1940. The booklet lists the organization's members, by-laws, and constitution. Additional booklets include the House Rules and a Junior Members list. Listed as a Resident Member is Mrs. Robert Grigg Reese (Louise de l'Aigle Seyd Reese).

This book was placed in a time capsule by Louise de l'Aigle Seyd Reese around 1941.

The time capsule was recovered by members of the DeLaigle (de l'Aigle) family in 2015 with permission from the Augusta-Richmond County Government.
