Noteworthy in the fact that this material is "fresh" to the golf collecting hobby, having recently been located on the upper East Coast. It's original owner was Hebert Jacques a renowned New England industrialist, architect and golf enthusiast. He was a member at The Country Club, Brookline, Massachusetts known as the first 'country club' in the United States which also had the acclaim as being among the first five founding members of the U.S. Golf Association. Jacques ascended to the 1907-08 Executive Committee of the U.S.G.A and became the eighth President of the organization in 1909-10. He remained ingrained in the administrative side of the game as the President of the Massachusetts Golf Association when Brookline hosted the 1913 U.S. Open. Long after his death in 1916, Jacques family was still highly involved in golf with his son Herbert Jacques serving as President of the U.S.G.A in the term 1933-34.
