THE MORSE TELEGRAPH CLUB, INC. was founded at Los Angeles, Calif. in April, 1942 to perpetuate the knowledge and traditions of telegraphy and American Morse Code, to foster and maintain friendship among telegraphers and to honor Samuel Finley Breese Morse for his invaluable contribution to society.
The club was reorganized in January, 1973 in Illinois with the Grand Chapter at Chicago and local chapters throughout the U.S. and Canada. Annually at a meeting on the last Saturday of April, each chapter commemorates Prof. Morse's birthday, April 27, 1791. At these affairs local telegraph circuits usually provide "background music," and in some cases intercity circuits are established by means of adaptive equipment which enables telephone circuits to be used as Morse "wires."
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the history and technology of the telegraph.
