Discover Unique Family Connections to Southerners Living in New York
In the late 1890s, a group of Tennesseans living in New York gathered together to form a small societal organization. All were graduates of the state university and wished to maintain their friendships in a large, diverse place. Thus was formed a luncheon group called the N.Y.U.T. Club (New York – University of Tennessee Club). This expanded to a group of societies focused on every Southern state and many non-Southern states and International communities.
