Scope and Contents

The Class of 1926 Freshman Banquet Program documents a banquet held on May 19, 1923 at the City Club, providing a class roll, officers, and statistics (i.e., participants in sports), as well as details on the evening's events. The program appears to be inscribed "Ruth Steed"; however, Robert Jackson Hood's name is marked where it appears in the program.

History of the Class of 1926

The Class of 1926 entered Georgia Tech in 1922 with approximately 700 members, some of whom were veterans of World War I. The class produced Tech's first four-letter man and ended a nine-year losing streak by beating the University of Georgia. Doug Wycoff, Ike Williams, and Carter Tate Barron consistently held leadership positions on the class council. Emory Brown Rumble, whose papers the Archives also holds, graduated with this class.
