Collection Description

Historical Note

When the University was incorporated in 1785, UGA became the first state in the nation to charter a state-supported university. In 1834 a group of 71 graduates met in the Chapel to organize an alumni society. A constitution was adopted, officers were elected and UGA became the fourth college in America to establish an alumni society. Today, the Association connects UGA alumni worldwide who gather together through community service projects, networking opportunities and leisure activities. The Association also funds scholarships and fellowships for outstanding UGA students and provides assistance to many campus programs.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of minutes of the Alumni society, a class of 1912 scroll, class of 1912 reunion information, posters explaining the importance of the Alumni Society, centennial alumni society rosters, 1785-1901, alumni directories, commencement programs, miscellaneous materials, speeches, WPA rosters of UGA graduates and matriculates (1804-1909), photographs, and 27 University of Georgia class of 1892 senior class pictures.

The University of Georgia Centennial Alumni Catalog including biographical sketches of students prior to 1901 is available online:
