Title
The History of the Alumnae Society of McGill University, 1889-1959
Abstract
In 1889 the first eight women to earn degrees at McGill formed the Mu Teta Society and in 1890 the name was changed to the Alumnae Society of McGill University. The Society's original intention was to maintain close contact between former classmates and to provide assistance to McGill women students. Its objectives have expanded to include educational and social service activities for the Montreal community. The Alumnae Society has continued to accomplish these objectives through the work of its various committees which have given support to special projects at times, such as the University Settlement, the Montreal Children's Library and the St. Anne's Military Hospital Library. Throughout the Society's life, it has maintained close connections with Royal Victoria College and is affiliated with the Canadian Federation of University Women and with the local Montreal Council of Women.
