Bohemian (1900 reference) A person with artistic or literary interests who disregards conventional standards of behavior. They were the elite of Lanark County, the so called cream of the crop. You had to be somebody to be part of the Bohemian Club.

Evening clothes worn by men (and also appropriate for women) included tail coats with white vests and ties. In the early twentieth century dinner jacket tuxedos also began to make their introduction, and although not historically typical for attire for a formal ball, a modern tuxedo will not be out of place for a Ragtime event. In the 1860s women’s dresses featured hoops, in the 1890s leg-of-mutton sleeves were in fashion, and in the 1910s the style changed to loose fitted dresses of light materials. You wore the best of everything for a Lanark Bohemian Club event.
