Collection Description & Creator Information

Description:

Consists of records of the American Whig Society (1769-1941). The materials document the growth and development of the oldest literary and debating society in the United States, from its inception in 1769, through its rivalry with the other campus literary organization, the Cliosophic Society, to its final merger with Clio in 1941. Included are minutes of meetings, financial records, and correspondence of members, as well as committee reports, membership lists, constitutions, and by-laws.

Collection History

Archival Appraisal Information:

In the process of organizing the Whig records, several items were discarded, including numerous check stubs written by the Whig Treasurer. Records of these checks exist in the Treasurer's documents. In addition, The Clerk's Question Books, two volumes, were discarded because the debate topics exist in the Final Minutes.
