Collection Overview

Biography / History
History of the Division, 1860-1930
The Alumni Association had its beginnings shortly before the Civil War. Since that time efforts were made by the college to keep in contact with graduates and former students. The contacts were meant to solicit support for Georgetown College's mission and programs. The first annual gathering of Alumni took place in June 1860. Since that time, Alumni have met during the week of commencement. In 1879, it became known as The Students' Association. At its 1885 annual meeting, the association became incorporated and committed itself to endowing a professorship of history and political science and raising money for scholarships. Dr. Arthur Yeager (Class of 1879 and president of Georgetown College, 1908-13) was the first to be appointed to the chair. When the college began conferring degrees to women in 1893, the Women's Association was organized five years later to raise scholarships for women attending the college. The organization of alumni efforts became more complex in 1900 when the Alumni Association was formed to include both men and women's divisions. The men (Students' Association) and women (Women's Association) kept their organizations in addition to the umbrella organization. It was from this time also that local alumni associations began, starting with the Scott County Alumni Association. The trustees gave the Association the power, in 1908, to nominate four of its members to the board. In 1920, the alumni efforts were restructured to include a General Alumni Association and the Women's Association. For the first time, too, the office of Alumni Secretary was created with a permanent office on campus. An organized, continuous effort was started to gather information about current addresses, degrees, honors, jobs, and family information of alumni and former students around 1921. Although this information had various uses, it also provided the needed information for updating biographical data on graduates. Periodically, special editions of the catalog were published, which listed graduates since the college's founding.
Scope and Content
These are the first records to be organized that belong to the Alumni Association and to the Affiliated Organizations Record Group. They include information on students, former students, and alumni. Students completed publicity cards in the early years of the 20th century, which were used by the public relations office in notifying newspapers whenever students were involved in different campus activities. Information includes a student's name, home address, hometown newspapers, birth date, high school, parents' names, and academic major and minor. The Alumni Association asked former students and alumni to submit updated information on their personal lives and career. A Former Student Record includes the name, degree, class year, birth date, denomination, home address, current address, marriage information, children, post-Georgetown College education, jobs held, volunteer work, club memberships, and publications. Earliest alumni date from graduating classes in the 1870s. Newspapers clippings are also included. Photographs of these students are organized separately.
