Historical Note - Freolac Club

The Freolac Club was organized in 1916 to bring together men of culture, having diverse interests and professions, who were concerned with keeping alive their quest for knowledge and truth in many fields of intellectual interest. Meetings are held once a month during the months of October to December and February to June. Members present papers on a topic of interest to them. Until 1981, members attending the meeting would provide critical feedback on papers presented. After this date, this practice was discontinued.
