History of the Club
■Fmerson once said in an essay upon
■T^£pensat?on," "Speak and act your
latent conviction and it shall become
hl'unive^al sense/ Thirty-five years
,„ a small number of Los Angeies
fn Se°n meTto organize an athletic cub
In Los Angeles and the foregoing
phrase was quoted. These few men
believed that an athletic club could
and should be formed in Los Ange es
They backed this belief by organizing
the Los Angeles Athletic club. Hur
rying through the intervening years
Je find the one grand result of that
meeting to be the Los Angeles Athletic
club of 1908, now grown to the pro
portions of one of the foremost insti
tutions of the great west. ..
\ Organized in the year 1873. with
hardly a hundred members and an in
.lllation fee of »20, the club now has
800 members and the initiation is $100,
and before many months have passed
it will be $250. Starting with a couple
:of small rooms In / the .. Downey, block
It was moved after two years into the
Stewell , building, now . the •: Germain
block, and in 1898 it again was moved,
this time to the present location at 534
South Spring street. It struggled along
in this locatlSh for about a year and
In 1899 suspended for lack -of funds.
The club held its original charter, and,
what .was more important, held a few
of the veteran members, who still be
lieved that the club would be made a
success ,and were willing again to
spend time, money and energy In the
attempt. They believed that if they
could get the business men of Los
Angeles Interested in the club and sell j
the club stock they could put the club
on a permanent'basis. Leading advo
cate* of this plan were R. A. Rowan
of the real estate firm of R. A. Rowan
'&|Co, Frank A. Garbutt, Theodore
Besslng and Charlie Eyton.;
Old Club Reorganized ;
' These • old • standpatters * reorganized
■ the * club In December, 1805, with .an |
issue of capital.. stock in the sum of j
$500,000., -They attempted to sell the
stock; to local business men, who at i
flrst were skeptical, but soon saw that |
the men -behind the club were repre
sentative citizens of Los Angeles, and j
R. A. ROWAN. President.
this inspired confidence as to the fu
ture of the club, with the result that
today every share of the stock Is held
by 141 of the most prominent business
men of Los Angeles.
Only last Friday a contract tor club
bonds in the sum of $500,000 was sent
to a brokerage firm in New York city,
and It is expected that this firm will
purchase these bonds, thereby furnish
ing the necessary funds for the erec
tion of the new million-dollar club
house on Olive street near Seventh.
The Los Angeles Athletic club as lt
ls today ls surpassed by no other 'like
institution in the country, as regards
its various physical, mental and social
advantages. Its corps of instructors ia
the best that could be found after a
careful search throughout the country.
Unlike many of Its eastern contem
poraries the club does not confuse ath
letics with mere training in any one
particular line of sport. Instead the

■ , The affairs of the club are adminis
tered by a board of five directors, who
are elected by the stockholders and
the officers of the \ club consist |of a
president, vice ■ president, treasurer,
secretary and assistant secretary. The
present officers of the club were elect
ed at the first meeting of the new or
ganization, which was held a few days
after incorporation, and because of
faithful -service they have been re
R. A. Rowan
R. A. Rowan Is president of the
club. He was born In Chicago in 1876
and moved with his parents to Los
Angeles in 1876. He attended the local
schools and about ten years ago es
tablished the real estate firm of R. A.
Rowan & Co., of which he is the senior
Frank A. Garbutt
Frank A. Garbutt is vice president
of the club and is very popular among
the members. He everywhere is
known as a lover of true sport. He
is extensively interested in oil inter
ests in Southern California. He also
ls a prominent member of the South
Coast Yacht club. He was born at
Mason City, 111., in 1868. At the age
of 3 years he moved with his parents
to Colorado and came to Los Angeles
in 1882. He attends to tile general
business of the club and devotes a
great portion of his time to the organi
Robert W. Kenny
The treasurer of the club is Robert
W. Kenny. He was born in San
Francisco in 1863' and came to Los '
Angeles in 1886, taking a responsible
position with the Los Angeles National
bank, and in 1898 was appointed cash
ier of the Broadway Bank and Trust
company, which position he now holds.
All his life he has been connected,
more or less prominently, with the
banking business and is well able to
hold the position as cashier.
Charles Eyton holds the position of
of Secretary. He was born in New
Zealand in 1873. After many years at
the theatrical business along the west
ern coast of the United States and
throughout Australia he came to Los
Angeles in 1900 and took the position
of assistant manager of the Burbank
theater, which position he now holds.
Eyton is a great believer in clean am
ateur sports, one of the foremost box
ing referees of the day, and .has done
much toward elevatln- general sporta
throughout Southern California.
Bill Henderson .
As Eyton's ' theatrical ' business re
quires a large portion of his time, it
was necessary to find a young man
who could manage the details of the
club business and act as assistant sec
retary. j Such a man was found by the
officers within two weeks after the re
organization of the club. This was the
present holder of the position, "Billle"
Henderson. Billle is 28 years of age,
was born in Hamilton, Ontario, and
came to California at an early age. It
was a case of the position seeking the
man. From the day Henderson entered
the office he has been untiring In his
efforts to conduct the club j business
along systematic business lines.
Al G. Treloar
Al G. Treloar, physical instructor, has
been trained by many years of prac
tical work and almost can see at a
l glance what his many pupils require in
the line of physical training. He was
born at Allegan, Michigan, in 1873, and
graduated from the Manister high
school at an early age. He then en
tered Harvard I university, where he
took up the normal course In physical
training, and after graduating from
the university acted as coach for the
Harvard freshman rowing crew for one
; year. He then accepted the position of
j physical instructor of the St. Paul Ath-
I letic club. Later he taught privately,
i and for ten years he traveled all over
I the country, giving private lessons to
I a host of pupils who had heard of his
I system of teaching. . In January, 1907,

the directors of the Los Angeles Ath
letic club learned of his success and
lost no time in employing him. The
veteran coach of Stanford university,

DeWitt Van Court .
There is a. gray-haired boxing in
structor at the club whom the boys call
"Van." His name is DeWitt C. Van
Court, and the boys, beside knowing
his as one of the best fellows in the
whole wide world, consider him the
best boxing Instructor in the country.
Van's actions when on the floor be
lle his gray hair. He is as quick as
lightning, and the greenest pupil soon
finds* him to be as harmless as the
thunder. No matter who you are, Van
laughs with you, not at you. Every
man who knows him ls his friend. He
stands without a peer as the master of
the clean and manly sport, the are of
self-defense. ■• ?■• .

the years 1806-1898. when he was with
the Los Angeles Athletic club. He went
back to the Olympic club at San Fran
cisco, where he remained until the re

the coast championship at 158 pounds
In 1887. Frank Cooley of the Olympic
