In the early twentieth century Herbert was very much involved in the clubs of New York. The clubs represented recognition of professional achievement as well as refuge from the stresses of an urban environment. It was a place where men of like mind and ability could enjoy each other's company. Clubs at this time included the Lambs, the Friars, the Lotos Club, the Society of Arts and Science, the American-Irish Historical Society, the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, the Friends of Irish Freedom, the Bohemians, and the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) that Herbert help found.
