Iroquois Club House

As early as 1890 Darrow was a member, along with John Peter Altgeld, of the Iroquois Club in Chicago. It was formed to create "a substantial society in the form of a social club that should be representative of progressive democratic principles . . . ." Other members who would figure in Darrow's public were DeWitt C. Cregier, future mayor of Chicago, and Stephen S. Gregory, one time president of the American Bar Association.
