Historical Note

The International Club was established in 1910 as the Cosmopolitan Club, and almost faded from the campus scene from 1928 to 1944. In the fall of 1944 it was reorganized as the International Club. The first International Festival sponsored by the club was held in 1945.

Scope and Content

The records of the International Club include International Festival records (ambassadors' messages, programs, photographs, brochures, news clippings and correspondence) (1945-1958); programs from social events sponsored by the Club (1944-1969); correspondence, including some with guest speakers (1945-1969); photographs of international students and members of the International Club (1922-1969); records of international exhibits on campus (1956); the Clubs Constitution (1962-1965); membership lists (1966-1967); and miscellaneous brochures, newsletters, and programs. Only one scrapbook (#184) contains any information earlier than 1944. The photographs in scrapbook #184 came unglued from the pages and were placed in envelopes. It was impossible to determine their original order.
