The Aero Club met at The Hub in Oak Park, Illinois. The Hub is the nickname for the department store chain, Henry C. Lytton & Co; the Oak Park branch was opened in the early 1930s. The Hub Aero Club met for the first time in May, 1934. It was an organization made to educate and instruct members in the ways to construct model aircraft. The group met on the second floor of The Hub, in the model airplane section of the store; they also visited local schools and organizations to teach others about the materials used in aircraft.
