Dates of existence
The Faculty Club originated from Carleton University's presence on First Avenue. Originally, the Club brought together people a few times a year for parties. According to Professor Emeritus of Chemistry, Don Wiles, the club, "...evolved into a sort of Friday night bar, then more of a restaurant. The most important thing about the club was that is became a daily meeting place for faculty members from all departments."
The Faculty Club was essentially a luncheon club that served a noon meal for members. It had a modest program of dinner-dances and parties during the school term. There was a Thursday Dinner Club with speakers and the club was available for use by individuals and groups. The mandate of the Faculty Club was to encourage social, cultural, and intellectual exchange between university staff and guests, as well as to provide opportunities for cooperation in advancing the interests and welfare of Carleton University.
