SCOPE AND CONTENT

After a period of dormancy during the first quarter of this century, the Alumni Association was reorganized in 1937 with the appointment of a secretary. The majority of the records in this collection date from that year. In March, 1946, following a break during World War II, the Association was again established with the appointment of a new secretary-treasurer. The "Alumni Letter" that had been started during the war was continued as "The Alumni Bulletin".

In 1948, a campaign was begun with the assistance of the Texas Medical Alumni Research Foundation and the University of Texas Development Board to raise money for an alumni-student building. The campaign was unsuccessful and a second campaign was launched in 1956. Sufficient funds were finally raised and in 1969 the Alumni Fieldhouse was opened.

The Alumni Association has sponsored reunions, receptions and, in the past, organized foreign tours for alumni. At each commencement program since 1965 four distinguished alumni are presented with the Ashbel Smith Distinguished Alumni Award. Information concerning these and other activities involving the Alumni Association is found in these records.
