Mrs. I.M. Raymond founded the Thursday Morning Lecture Circle of Lincoln, Nebraska in 1904 after she visited a woman's lecture circle in Washington, D.C. The constitution of the Circle, first written down in the 1920s, stated that the Circle's purpose was to "afford a means of self-improvement for its members." This was done through the presentations of visiting lecturers discussing a wide variety of subjects. Through the years, the Lecture Circle depended upon faculty members of the University of Nebraska to supply speakers.
