Description
The San Jose State College Patrons Association Records, 1933-1990, a division of the California Congress of Parents and Teachers, documents the history of the organization over a sixty-year period. The collection consists of history and publicity scrapbooks pertaining to the organization, as well as administration and membership records.
Background
Established in 1933, the San Jose State College Patrons Association was a division of the California Congress of Parents and Teachers, The college-level equivalent of the Parent-Teacher Association (P.T.A.). The San Jose State College Patrons Association fostered educational and social events for San Jose State College students, maintained close relations with the College administration and faculty to promote student welfare on campus, and sponsored a wide variety of campus activities and events, including annual dinners and potluck luncheons. The Student Emergency Fund and the Welfare Fund were the two major projects of the Patrons. In 1954, the SJSC Patrons Association withdrew from the P.T.A. and became a free-standing club on campus. New by-laws were created, but the Association retained its original philosophical tenet of being continually dedicated to the support and welfare of San Jose State College students.
