Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Quarter Century Club, whose members have been affiliated with the Davis campus for twenty five years or more, was organized in 1939. This small collection contains the club's meeting minutes from 1939-1989 as well as several clippings that feature the club.
According to the minutes of the club's first meeting in September 1939, the idea for the group was formed at a reunion of men who had been affiliated with the University Farm. The minutes state: "To commemorate the olden days and to stage a sort of old timer's reunion, it was suggested that we call the "actives" together during the sheep show at the Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island."
