Biographical / Historical

Durham businessman Edward L. Cannon, president of the Duke Alumni of Durham formed a club of fellow Durham businessmen and Duke University supporters. The first meeting of seven or eight attendees was held in the Fountain Room at the Washington Duke Inn on April 16, 1935. Later meetings were held at a barbecue restaurant on Cole Mill Road at Huckleberry Springs, leading to a nickname of the Huckleberry Alumni Group.
