Organizational History

The Canterbury Review Club was founded in Spring of 1947 by Mrs. John T. Knox, and its constitution was modeled on the book review club of her mother, Mrs. D.H. McFadden. One of the many book review clubs in Dallas inspired by Mrs. Ermance Rejebian, the Canterbury Review Club sponsored literary reviews through the presentation of a work of current literature by a reviewer.
