The Los Angeles Athletic Club literally grew up with Los Angeles, its membership roster reading like a “Who’s Who” of the city, with names like Chandler, Dockweiler, Doheny, O’Melveny, and Slauson. During the Golden Age of Hollywood, stars of the silver screen congregated at The Club, among them Mary Pickford, Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Harold Lloyd and Johnny Weissmuller (“Tarzan”). Perhaps our best known resident was Charlie Chaplin, who lived at LAAC during his formative years and cherished the privacy it afforded. Over the years, our guests have included such luminaries as Jack London, William Randolph Hearst, and WWI Ace Eddy Rickenbacker. At a 1913 banquet held in his honor, aviation pioneer Glenn Martin was surprised to find his early biplane in the Fleet Room, being used as a dining table!
