The Cyclone Club came into existence in 1859 and included in its membership some of the brightest young men of St. Louis, among them a number of whom have left the impress of their handiwork in almost every honorable calling. The founders of this club were Ed Bredell, a St. Louisan, and M. W. Griswold, a former resident of Brooklyn, N. Y. and a captain in the U. S. Army. Through the exertions of these base ball enthusiasts and organization was perfected embracing eventually with others the following: M. W. Alexander, the well-known druggist; Ed. T. Farish, lawyer; Jno. P. Collier; Ferd. L. Garesche; Joseph Gamble, now a clergyman in one of the Eastern States; Basil Duke, lawyer and later a brigadier-general in the Confederate Army; Dr. Gratz Moses, John Lapsley, Rufus Gamble, Jno. T. Davis, son and successor in business of Sam'l C. Davis; Alfred Bernoudy, Recorder of Deeds; Ed Bernoudy; Edward Bredell, afterward one of Mosby's men in Virginia; John S. Fullerton, lawyer, Brigadier-General in the Union Army and after the war postmaster in this city; Leonard and W.H. Matthews, druggists, and E. O. Matthews, now a commodore in the U. S. Navy; Alex Grossman, a son of a captain in the U. S. Army; John Waddell, nephew of Gen. D. M. Frost, a confederate soldier and later a state officer; Col. J. Griff Prather, the Democratic statesman, and Willis C. Walker, merchant.
-E. H. Tobias, writing in The Sporting News, November 2, 1895
Based on the writings of Tobias, Griswold, and Leonard Matthews, I now have a list of thirty-one men who have been mentioned as members of the Cyclone Club. While I have no confidence that this is a complete list, I'm comfortable saying that most of the members of the club have been identified.
