Science Club
0.4 Cubic Feet plus clippings
Historical Note

The VPI Science Club was organized in 1914 by "those interested in scientific work at the V.P.I." The club was primarily a faculty organization, but was open to undergraduate students in the "Junior or Senior classes." In 1958, the Science Club changed its name to the VPI Science Council, developed new objectives, and changed its organizational structure, "to better the promotion of science." At that time, it became wholly a faculty organization, "with particular emphasis given to coordinating science activities where needed, formulating resolutions, and sponsoring special council projects." The organization was abolished in 1960.

Scope and Content

The Science Club records include: minute books (handscript and typescript, 4 vols., 1914-58), scattered correspondence, memoranda, financial reports, membership rosters (1936-58), receipt and expenditure books (2 vols, 1938-46), and two small receipt books of dues (1945-48). The Science Council records include scattered minutes, correspondence, and memoranda (1958-60).
