Itinerants Literary Society, Hobart
Agency Number:
Start Date:
01 Jan 1896
The Society began as a result of a dispute within the Hamilton Literary Society in 1894 when a group of members broke away to form a separate society. They are 'itinerants' in that they meet at each member's home in turn. The Society's rules set out the number of members, hours of meetings and terms of membership. Papers are wide-ranging and the records preserve a little - known aspect of Hobart women's cultural and social life.
