One of the first USC organizations to start supporting athletics was “the Trojan club,” which started in 1923 and created the “Monday Morning Quarterback” lunches where the football coach would review the previous game.
The Trojan club was also a star-studded group in the late 1940’s. Actors Clark Gable, Robert Taylor and Edward Arnold were members in “good standing.” Los Angeles mayor Fletcher Bowron was also a member.
Gable and Taylor were huge movie stars during this time.
This leads to an obvious question: Would Clark Gable have renewed his season tickets if he were alive? Or would he say, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”
