History

The Bohemian was the quarterly of the "Our Literary Club in Bohemia" or the Bohemian Club. The club was organized April 21, 1898, at "The Nest," corner East Belknap and Harding streets, Fort Worth, Texas. The object of the Club was for the self improvement, mutual benefit and the development of Southern literature. The club met every second and fourth Fridays at "The Nest", the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henrie C. L. Gorman. The motto of the club was: "The fruit of my own pen is my offering". The Bohemian included historical articles, poems, photographs, short stories and other literary efforts. The members included many prominent citizens of Fort Worth including B. B. Paddock, Judge B. R. Webb, Judge C. C. Cummings, Dr. J. L. Cooper, Fanny L. Armstrong, D. S. Landis, J. P. Brashear, J. T. Brantley, and Rev. Homer T. Wilson.
