Table of contents What's This?
These records consist of administrative papers of the Speakers' Bureau including the founding constitution of 1954 created by the College for Women, meeting minutes, policy development about speakers on campus, and informational material for prospective speakers.
The Speakers' Bureau at the University of San Diego has served a series of functions since its founding in 1954. Founded by the Associated Students of the College for Women, with the support of Academic Dean and English Professor, Mother Aimee Rossi, the Speakers' Bureau served as an avenue for students to improve their speaking skills and exchange ideas. The first meeting was the first Student Marian Congress held in 1954. USD students as well as junior and senior women in area Catholic high schools were invited to attend. All speeches were conducted by members of the Bureau. In 1955, the Bureau continued to invite area high schools to their meetings but included public as well as private school students.
