Toastmasters began as a series of speaking clubs organized by Ralph C. Smedley during his time as director of education, at the YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association) in Bloomington, Illinois in 1905. He saw a need for the men in the community to learn how to speak, conduct meetings, plan programs and work on committees, and he wanted to help them. However, these clubs did not have the support needed to sustain them. In 1922, 17 years later, he transferred and began working at the newly organized YMCA in Santa Ana, California. His dream to have speaking clubs for men did not die. Two years later, October 22, 1924, the first official Toastmasters meeting was held. Ralph C. Smedley died in 1965. In 1970, Toastmasters International admitted its first female member, Helen Blanchard, under the name Homer Blanchard. In 1973, Toastmasters began officially admitting women, and in 1985, Helen became Toastmasters’ first female international president. Today, 94 years later, Toastmasters has 16,400 clubs in 141 countries with over 352,000 memberships.
