Dec. 9th, 1887

The regular meeting of the club was held on the evening of Friday Dec. 9th, at the studio of the Secretary. Of members, there were present Messr’s. Church, Farrer, Free, Thos. Moran, Nicoll, Sabin, Shelton, Schilling, Share, Van Elten, Twachtman&Smillie.

The minutes of last meeting were read and approved.

The following candidates were then unanimously elected to Membership. Reginald Cleveland Coxe, of Baltimore, Maryland, was elected to Non-Residence membership of the New York Etching Club soon after completing only his first few etchings. The Art Review reported in November 1886 that “demand for etchings prompts artists to take up the etching needle. One of the latest to do so, and with a measure of success that invites attention, is Mr. R. Cleveland Coxe.” His etchings were reproductive after his own paintings. Coxe’s quick rise to membership in the club could only have served to alienate many early and loyal non-member exhibitors like J. Wells Champney, John Henry Hill, Stephen Ferris, Benjamin Lander, John Millspaugh, and F. De B. Richards, all of whom ceased exhibiting independently with the club shortly after.
