History of the Century Association

The Century Association, a club designed to promote the fine arts and literature in New York City, was formed in 1847 at a meeting of the Sketch Club, which had been in existence since 1829. The Century Association’s first Constitution was adopted on January 13, 1847. One hundred gentlemen engaged or interested in letters and the fine arts had been invited to join in forming the Association. Forty-two accepted the invitation and became founders; forty-six others joined during the first year. In 1857 the Association was incorporated by an act of the Legislature of the State of New York, which was amended in 1883. Membership has always been made up of writers, artists, and amateurs of the fine arts. The Century Association has been prominent in the community of creative artists in New York since its inception.

 


Scope and Contents

The Century Association Records consist of correspondence, reports, minutes, photographs of the members and other materials relating to the history of the Association from the inception of the Organization until today. The records of the Century Association were loaned to the Century Association Archives Foundation for a period of fifteen years in 1997. The Foundation is charged with organizing and preserving these materials, and is responsible for materials generated by the Century Association that are ten years old or older. Processing of the collection is still in progress.
