History

The creation of the Johns Hopkins Club was inspired by Herbert Baxter Adams who, after a visit to the Yale Graduates Club in New Haven wanted to provide a similar facility for Hopkins. The club was officially organized in December 1899, with 260 charter members.

The club includes a membership of both men and women, restricted to alumni, faculty, and full-time graduate students of Johns Hopkins University. The Club now is home to over 4,000 members.[1]

Installations

When the University moved to the Homewood campus, the Johns Hopkins Club moved with it, occupying the Georgian buildings on campus. It has a dramatic spiral staircase insider. Several additions have been made since then, including offices and additional dining and kitchen space, notably in 1956, 1981 and 1987.
