The West Indian Club Ltd, incorporated in 1898 and active until the 1970s, was a gentlemen’s social club, made up of members from London, elsewhere in Britain, the West Indies and beyond, who shared an interest in the West Indies. The club provided a social space for members, regular luncheons and dinners with invited speakers and guests, as well as promoting sports activities, including early cricket tours to and from the West Indies. This paper explores some aspects of the early history of the Club, its activities and membership.
