|Organized on March 11, 1911, the Victor Alfieri Literary Society was formed to help young Italian men meet fellow immigrants to help each other find jobs and adjust to American ways. The founders also agreed that the social club should have an Italian name to attract the young immigrants. So it was named after Vittorio Alfieri, a popular playwright and poet who lived in Italy from 1749 to 1803.
But, in accord with Americanizing the club’s members, the writer’s Italian name was Anglicized to “Victor."
