The Liberal Club, begun in 1913 by Henrietta Rodman (also a member of the Heterodoxy Club — a feminist debating society that was a haven for bisexuals and lesbians), played an integral role in establishing Greenwich Village as a bohemian enclave. The club’s yearly “Pagan Routs” became one of their most visible activities and were their primary fundraiser. Poster is signed by “Rienecke”.
