Today's club reaches out to all seeking to support each other in their curiosity and knowledge in all fields of science whether sociology physics, biology or computers.
All members are explorers of science irrespective of their occupations whether wives, mothers, artists, teachers or scientists
Members write and share papers on any scientific subject of personal interest in a thorough and scholarly or logical manner.
The challenge, pride and depth of understanding that comes from sharing such presentations cannot be overstated.
"εις to φως" - Greek for "towards the light"
From its early roots over 100 years ago in the woman's suffrage movement, Eistophos has attracted those interested in science, encouraging them to expand and grow.
Starting with its members' papers being published in the proceedings of the Chicago Worlds Fair, it was initially an auxilliary of the National Science Club but by 1893 it broke off calling itself Eistophos Science Club of Washington DC.
Our members actively reach within themselves to under-stand scientific topics of personal interest to present to others.
In 1895, before the Wright brothers flight, Mrs. Oldman presented "Aerial Navigation. In 1974, Mrs. Dryden presented "Skylab". And in 2009, microbiologist Diana Hudson-Taylor presented "String Theory -Tying Everything Together".
Information about Eistophos can be found in the Washington DC Public Library's Washingtonianna Collection, the Martin Luther King Jr. Library, and the Library of Congress.
