The Lincoln Dinner Club was begun in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1942, for the purpose of "exchanging ideas and information following a good meal." Meetings, at variable intervals, were held at the Hotel Cornhusker. At each meeting a speaker would preside. This was an organization for both men and women; a limited number of people could join at a given time. Due to dwindling membership and lack of funds the organization disbanded in May of 1969.
