The Ten Dons was a literary and social organization consisting of ten men living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Tradition has it that the organization grew out of a history study club. The object was "to provide opportunity for social recreation and mutual mental development." Each member of the Dons was required to prepare and read a paper to the club. At their monthly meetings they had a dinner, presentation of their papers on various themes, followed by discussion. The organization went out of existence soon after 1968.
