Brief humorous account, finely printed of this hunting and fishing club (with by-laws and roster of members), first organized in 1908 at Bova's restaurant in Boston after an outing to Damariscotta, Maine. The three members were Travers D. Carman (whose card is affixed to the first leaf), William E. Hall, and Allen H. Wood. Carman worked for The Outlook, and was apparently friendly enough with another keen sportsman, Theodore Roosevelt, to accompany him to the 1912 Republican convention.
The history of the club is told in six "Gasps" recounting the convivial circumstances under which the club was formed.
