Alumni Union, 1879-1945

ADMINISTRATIVE HISTORY: The Alumni Union at St. Jerome's College was established in 1879 to promote the interests of the College and to cultivate friendship among its current and former students. The Alumni Union elected a President, 3 Vice-Presidents, a Secretary, a Treasurer and an Executive Council of 11 members. The officers of the Union were ex-officio members of the Executive Council including the Reverend President of the College. Meetings were initially held annually at the College on Commencement Day. An 1884 amendment to the Union constitution changed the regularity of the general meetings to every second year, although until 1983 meetings were actually convened every three years. Some time during the early 1920's the name of the Union was changed to the Alumni Association of St. Jerome's College. It continued into the 1950's. SCOPE AND CONTENTS: This series includes 2 copies of the Alumni Union constitution; an acccount book (July, 1879 - June, 1898); minutes of Union meetings (1882, 1883, 1887, 1890, 1893, 1910, and 1935); a copy of the Alumni issue of THE BEE (Vol. I, August, 1899) which published an article on the history of the Alumni Union; circular letters; an alumni reunion program for 1899; and a list of donors to the St. Jerome's College Villa Fund dated 1915. The records are arranged by subject.
