Administrative history

The Brodie Club, founded in 1921, and held its first meeting at the Royal Ontario Museum. Intially the club was called the Toronto Naturalist’s Club but changed its name to the Brodie Club in 1923 when a separate club, the Toronto Field Naturalists was formed. Among the original members were J.H. Ames, H.H. Brown, E.J. Deacon, J. Edmonds, J.H. Fleming, A. Kay, C.W. Nash, E.V. Rippon, R.B. Thomson, and E.M. Walker. The Brodie Club continues to be an active club whose aim is to enhance its membership's interest in natural history.
