The Kirksville Kiwanis Club was born on or about October 25, 1920, when a group of the city’s business and professional men held an initial organizational meeting, elected temporary officers and made plans to meet again in a few days for formal organization.  At the next meeting on November 9, the constitution of the international organization was adopted and the temporary officers were named to continue in their positions for the ensuing year.

The first weekly luncheon meeting was held the following Thursday, November 18, with over 50 in attendance.  The program that day was an explanation of the proposed new city street lighting plan, which the membership voted to endorse.  Other business included a decision to hold the weekly meeting on Thursdays and the election of a delegate to the District Convention to be held in St Louis the following week.  They also agreed they were not yet sufficiently organized to accept an invitation to take charge of the up-coming county Red Cross drive. 

The Club received its Charter from AC Maher, Governor of the Missouri-Kansas District, at its “first annual" banquet on February 11, 1921.

Two collections have been combined to create this Archive.  The earlier documents were a gift of Kiwanis charter member Paul Owen Selby (1890-1982), a Kirksville native and member of the Northeast Missouri State Teachers College [Truman State University] faculty.  He held the offices of secretary and president of the local club and was District Lt Governor in 1929.  He also served as long-term editor of the Weekly Bulletin, usually writing under the name ‘San Pablo’.  Dr Selby donated his extensive collection of Kiwanis documents and publications to Pickler Memorial Library’s local history collection after his retirement in 1960 and continued to add to his initial gift in later years.  Other Club members with University ties have contributed items since his death.

During the summer of 2005, the Club decided it was time to find a permanent home for its records so they could be preserved, housed in one place (rather than with individuals), and made accessible to all members or historians.  Pickler Memorial Library's Special Collections Department was selected as the repository and the first batch of files were delivered to the Library under a Deed of Gift on July 14.  Additional files were received in 2007 and others will be added to the Archive as they become inactive in future years.

  Beginning Fall 1964, the 1965-66 editor ceased numbering each issue and failed to date many of them making it difficult to determine how many and which issues are missing; there are 31 issues which seem to be 1965, but the last few may actually be 1966
