ONE OF THE OLDEST AND
GREATEST TRADITIONS of the University Club is the
discussion of intellectual, social, legal, artistic, historical,
scientific, musical, theatrical, and philosophical issues in the company
of educated, bright, and appropriately provocative individuals, all
under the beneficent influence of substantial amounts of tobacco and
spirits. The University Club Cigar Society
embraces this tradition and extends it with its fortnightly Informal
Smokers, monthly University Series lectures, and quarterly
Cigar Society Dinners, in which cigars, and from time to time
pipes and cigarettes, appear as an important component of our version of
the classical symposium.
