Meeting books and scrapbooks of the Entre Nous organization.
Entre Nous was organized in 1910 in Grand Forks, North Dakota, to further the culture of its members and to fulfill worthy enterprises the club wished to undertake. Membership was by invitation and limited to a minimum of twelve, but no more than fourteen, who were elected by ballot. Meetings were generally held twice per month from October to the following May, and were hosted at the homes of members alternating by alphabetical order. Topics of discussion were chosen by the presenter. Entre Nous remains an active organization in Grand Forks to this day.
