The Vagabond Club (1914-1928) was a Vancouver literary society for men intended for those interested in literature and possessing a sharp wit. A member was expected to verbally "attack" his fellow members in an amusing way. The Vagabond Club was formed at a time (1914) when this form of "verbal jousting" was commonplace. The Club was very much a Vancouver organization with a distinct focus on British Columbia and Canadian literature.
