What is the Detroit Athletic Club?

In the beginning of Bulletproof Jack, a dead body shows up on Kim Otto’s doorstep, introducing a new mystery to solve. But earlier in the evening before this incident, Kim was having dinner at the Detroit Athletic Club. When I worked in Detroit, the DAC was one of my favorite spots. Do you know it?

The DAC was founded in 1887 and modeled after the Palazzo Farnese, or the Farnese Palace, in Italy. It’s a private social club and athletic club located in the heart of Detroit’s theater, sports, and entertainment district, just across the street from the historic Music Hall.Over the years, the DAC has provided financial assistance and training opportunities for many athletes preparing for the Olympic Games. For example, at the 1956 U.S. Olympic Team Trials, springboard divers Jeanne Stunyo and Barbara Gilders-Dudeck were sponsored by the DAC. Stunyo and Gilders-Dudeck qualified for the Summer Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia. At the Games, Jeanne Stunyo won the springboard diving silver medal, and Barbara Gilders-Dudeck finished in fourth place—less than one point from a bronze medal. You can read more about the DAC here!
