Smoker – (n.) An informal social gathering for men only
Sick of letting the boys have all the fun, the Young Women’s Republican Club of Milford, Connecticut decided to have a “smoker” of their own. On the evening of May 20th, 1941, the girls drank, smoked pipes, wrestled, and had their very own strip-tease. Life Magazine’s Nina Leen documented the debauchery.
