Legends of finance and wealth were members of the Piping Rock Club, Locus Valley, New York started in 1911. In this membership book of 1914 the initiation fee was 200 dollars and the semi-annual dues were 150.00. At that time membership was restricted to men and total membership was not to exceed 550 men
The book lists members like J.P Morgan, Frank Nelson Doubleday and Benjamin Strong. But the list is impressive. There are by-laws that were written in 1012. If you have ever played on their golf course or know others who have it is an interesting piece of history worthy of collecting.
