Incorporation records, by-laws (with revisions), and annotated lists of membership for this private hunting and fishing club in Ridgeway, South Carolina, organized by John Magee of Corning, N.Y., William de F. Haynes, of New York City, and Clinton G. Gilmore, of Lenox, Mass., in 1904, for the purpose of preserving game and shooting on the club properties. The club operated from November to April each year. Club rules set daily limits on quail (20 per day, or 30 per day for member and guest).
The membership was initially limited to fifteen, and a correction notes that the limit was raised to seventeen. Two typed addenda list fourteen and nine members (the latter list dated 30 January 1918). Other corrections and insertions record amendments to the by-laws.
A New York merchant, William de F. Haynes (1862-1932), was a member of the South Side Sportsman’s Club, and was elected to the Cascapedia Club in 1910 and served as the Secretary of the Cascapedia Club from 1913 until his death.
