The Science Club Receives a Telescope

Members of the Cleveland Natural Science Club worked in small groups and committees based on their personal interests. The formation of these sections, which were usually composed of fewer than fifty persons, was meant to promote the exchange of ideas through informal group discussions. Following the receipt of a four-inch telescope as a gift in the late 1930s, plans were formulated for the creation of an astronomy section. Other groups were devoted to photography, folk-dancing, the promotion of natural science in elementary schools, maintaining the public nature trail, and planning group trips.
