A New Radcliffe Room

The College Club of Boston, 117 years old, calls itself the oldest such women’s club in America. Radcliffe was represented among the 19 pioneers who gathered in 1890 to form a club where college-educated women could “‘enjoy sociability and companionship’ while advancing their knowledge of literature, public affairs, history and the arts” (see www.thecollegeclubofboston.com). In restoring its Victorian townhouse at 44 Commonwealth Avenue, the club’s board members dedicated the 11 guest rooms to its founders’ schools; among them is the Radcliffe Room, designed by John Montgomery and Susan Able, RS ’97.
