A bi-national local history club that was founded in 1934, and still at it with an active membership. The meeting alternate monthly between a Windsor location and one in Clawson.

Anyone know anything about them, any members here?

Andrew-I know absolutely nothing about the Algonquin Club, but I do recall many years ago that Bob Lee, former curator of the Dossin Museum gave his fascinating lecture on the "History of Prostitution in Detroit" at the Algonquin Club.
Bob knew a lot more about Detroit's history other than just about the steamships that sailed by his beloved museum.

Until the other day I was unaware they were even in existance, despite having operated since 1934.

Talk about flying under the radar!
