Historical Note

The Inter Nos Club of Indianapolis was started in 1894 and was federated in 1911. The club's name means "between ourselves" and was an organization for women only. The club's objective was to promote intellectual and cultural studies and consisted of active, associate, corresponding, fifty-year, and honorary members. The club's official colors were lavender and pink and its mission was to be "a place where kindly thought is cherished; where high ideals are fed and nourished; where charity in all its beauty is said to be a sacred duty; and members meet on common ground."
