HISTORICAL NOTE
Science Club was a student organization founded on May 7, 1909 and was, according to the 1910 Rockety-I yearbook, established "for the purpose of promoting the study of the natural sciences." The club initially met every Friday where its members attended a lecture on a science-related topic. The club was not featured in the majority of the Rockety-I yearbooks during this decade; originally, Science Club consisted of only male members, but females participated in its 1921 re-introduction to the Rockety-I. The club was sponsored by a Club Council of students and faculty such as Dr. J.P. Magnusson and professor Hal Yingling.

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The Science Club Collection is very small and consists primarily of correspondence concerning the purchase and payment of the Science Bulletin for club members, minimal financial records, and a few scientific articles. The the majority of the articles (typed and handwritten) appear to be student and professor contributions and include: "Enzymes and Enzyme Reactions" by Carl Rylander, "Gelatine" by Leroy Stark, and "Colloids" by J. P. Magnusson. Also included is a 1923 edition of The Science Newsletter.
