Series 1: National Organizations, 1827-2011
Collection Description & Creator Information
Consists primarily of administrative materials such as correspondence, meeting minutes, notebooks and reports belonging to both national and regional associations and their committees, most from the first half of the 20th century. Also contains newsletters, alumni directories, scrapbooks, photographs, and materials documenting reunions and alumni organization activities from the late 19th century forward. The earliest items in the collection are a cash book for the Alumni Association of Nassau Hall from 1835, which lists a donation by James Madison in the amount of $20, and a minute book for the same organization, kept by John Maclean from 1826 to 1878. Also notable in the collection are the memoirs of Donald Griffin '26, who served on the alumni council for 30 years.
No arrangement has been imposed on the series; the papers remain in their original order.
