The Calgary Town and Gown Club was founded ca.1961 to bridge the perceived gap between those who had struggled to obtain a Calgary university and the new academic community. Although the meetings were not as formal as the name suggests, they did provide occasion for dinner and debate. The first club dinner was probably in January or February of 1962 at the Highlander Motor Hotel. The Club celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1987-1988
