With the Club’s 92nd birthday approaching, who better to reflect on a near century of history than the Members who lived it?
Drew Damron, the Club’s Library manager and an archival research specialist, adds the caveat that there’s no time like the present to preserve the past.
“When it comes to oral history, time is a factor,” says Damron. “It’s really important to get it down as soon as possible before all that memory and heritage is gone.”
At this retrospective evening, Damron presents an overview of the Club's milestones and hosts a panel of Members in conversation on the past. From 6:30pm, scan any old brochures, invitations, photographs and other Club documents to contribute to the Club's growing archive.
With the Club’s centennial anniversary on the horizon, Damron knows time waits for no one.
“Tokyo is constantly rebuilding,” Damron adds. “In an interesting way, the Club reflects that.”
