Scope and Contents

This collection contains one list compiled by the Office of the Dean of Students, which lists Georgia Tech alumni from 1908-1912. The list also mentions the alumni's occupation and residence after graduation.

Administrative History of the Alumni Association

Individuals interested in forming an alumni association met in 1896 at the home of Georgia Tech's first graduate, Henry L. Smith (ME' 90). Together, they drafted the first set of by-laws in 1898. In 1906, they petitioned for a charter, which was granted on June 20, 1908. The group reorganized in 1919, drafting new by-laws under the name of the Georgia Tech National Alumni Association, led by W. H. Glenn (1891).

In 1922, Albert H. Staton (ME '22) was hired as the first executive secretary. He also served as the editor of the Georgia Tech Magazine, which debuted in 1923. Other former Tech students have also held the position of executive secretary: George C. Griffin (CE '22), Jack Thiesen (EE '10), Howard Ector (IM '40), Roane Beard (IM '49), Robert Rice (IM '49), John B. Carter, Jr. (IE '69), and Joseph P. Irwin (IM'80).

Certain programs have developed out of the Alumni Association. While Griffin was secretary, he created a placement service in 1923, which later transferred to the Tech's administration. In 1947, the Alumni Association began the annual fund raising campaign known as the Roll Call.
