The Fox Club is one of the eight originally male-only final clubs at Harvard University. It was founded in 1898 by a group of six undergraduate students. Originally known as the Digamma Club, the name Fox and the Club’s symbol, a fox carrying the letter "F", grew from the similarity between the letter "F" and the archaic Greek character for "Digamma", which primarily signifies the number 6. The clubhouse has three floors that serve both the undergraduate and alumni membership, as well as an underground level where club members may invite guests. The clubhouse was built in 1906 and designed by Guy Lowell, a prominent American architect who also designed the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the New York State Supreme Court Building. The building is located on 44 John F. Kennedy Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and is a city historic landmark or otherwise protected property.
