Additional Information: 

The Monarch Club was a national organization with branches in towns across the United States. This button commemorated the National Monarch Club convention of 1932 held in Syracuse, New York. Every year a vote would take place to determine the location of the next convention. Durham, NC was chosen as the site of the 1933 convention and John Sorg (of Pittsburgh, PA) was re-elected as national president. The previous 1931 national convention took place in Richmond, Virginia.

As a whole the Monarch Club were engaged in civic matters. In 1941, the Monarch Club of Cortland raised funds via a public dance for the local blood bank and the Rochester Monarch Club hosted a steak-roast and G.O.P platform informational session for those interested in 1931.
