The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 50
The Alumni Association is composed of graduates of the University. It holds an annual meeting on Wednesday and Thursday of commencement week, and is addressed in the University chapel by an orator previously selected from its own body.
The objects of this society are the promotion of education, especially in the halls of the Alma Mater, the reunion of early friends and co-laborers in literary pursuits, and the revival of those pleasing associations which entwine themselves about academic life.
The fee for membership is $2. This is added to the permanent fund, the interest of which, only, is used. It is hoped that all graduates of the University, whether academic or professional, will become members of the Association. The Librarian solicits aid in securing facts for the next triennial, and will be thankful for published notices of, or books, or pamphlets and articles, published by officers and graduates.
Information is also asked for, touching all who have held offices in the University, especially those who are deceased. Before the issue of the next triennial, it is hoped information will be collected for a biographical sketch of each of the deceased officers and graduates.
The officers of the Association are: Col. A. T. Alexander, Pres.; E. W. Stephens, 1st V. P.; C. B. Rollins, Sec., and J. S. Clarkson, Treas.
