The Club Rooms

In this issue we present for the first time two pictures of the rooms of the American Alpine Club at 140 East 46th Street, New York City, the main room, where Council meetings are held, and one of the library-stack rooms being shown. These room and the Journal are the two chief items for which our revenues are expended, as will be made clear by examination of the Treasurer’s report. Within the rooms are contained what is probably the finest mountain library and collection of Alpine memorabilia in this country. All items have been methodically catalogued, and are at the disposal of members. The library, containing more than 5000 volumes, has the Montagnier collection as its nucleus and additions are constantly being made. Members living at a distance will find much to interest them, and should take the opportunity of examining our headquarters when in New York.
