Biography or History
The Chili Club was established in 1938 by a group of prominent Santa Fe men. The original name was AXIS, but that was soon changed with the advent of World War II. The clubs’ twelve members, with diverse professional backgrounds such as architecture, art, business, education, engineering, journalism, law, medicine, ministry, and writing, presented papers and discussed human problems for mutual benefit. If a member drops out of the club, a unanimous vote of the remaining members is required to replace him. There are no officers, just a two-member steering committee, chosen by majority vote, which looks after programs and affairs for a term of one year.
