Hopkinsville, Kentucky

Founded April 1902


Becoming a member of Athenaeum

The society is limited to 40 active members. As of now they must be male. The nominating committee proposes names of prospective members, and the society votes on them by secret ballot.

The committee nominates those men gifted by their inteligence, their ability to produce worthy papers, and their compatibility with other members.
