Collection Creator Biography:

The Senior Council was an undergraduate student government organization that existed at Princeton University from 1905 to 1927. It was formed to provide a body through which undergraduate leaders of opinion could consult with faculty and trustees on relevant matters. Despite some initial success, the Senior Council was limited in that it was composed entirely of seniors, and therefore was not representative of the undergraduate student body as a whole. Following a heated debate about student car use on campus in 1927 the Senior Council resigned. It was subsequently replaced by the somewhat more representative Undergraduate Council.
