    The Social Committee was organized in 1937, replacing the former Board of Control of Social Activities.

At its inception, the student members of the committee were appointed by the executvie committee of the Students' Union and the faculty members were appointed by Dr. Bergendoff.
        The committee planned numerous all-school social events throughout the school year, including Halloween and Christmas parties as well as a Spring picnic.

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT
