Scope and Content Notes

The Alumni Association Records document the alumni of Oregon State University and the Association's administration and activities, and publications. The collection includes the records of individual graduating classes documenting activities during their student years as well as reunions and other special events after graduation. Lists of alumni and alumni directories are part of the collection. Subject files pertaining to notable alumni; faculty, staff, and friends of OSU; special events; and other university-related topics comprise a large component of the collection. The records of special events such as homecoming, class reunions, and the centennial of Oregon State University as well as fundraising for special projects such as a new football stadium and the carillon for the Memorial Union are included in the records. The collection includes extensive materials documenting the Association's publications - the alumni magazine, the Orange and Black, alumni directories, and sets of sound recordings of Oregon State songs. The collection also includes sound recordings by Bob Eberhard of Oregon State basketball games (in about 1957); a speech by Fred Shideler about the value of OSU to the Corvallis community; and an interview with Dan Poling about Corvallis and Oregon State College during World War II.

An addition to the Alumni Association Records (Accession 2013:057) is made up of materials documenting the nomination of various people for three awards organized by the OSU Alumni Association: the E.B. Lemon Distinguished Alumni Award, the C.H. "Scram" Graham Leadership Award, and the Dan Poling Alumni Service Award. In addition to nomination packets made up of biographical information and letters of support, these files also contain cds, event programs, floppy diskettes, newspaper clippings, photographs, and speeches. Numbering about 400 images in total (300 prints and 100 negatives), the photographs consist of portrait shots of the award recipients as well as depictions of the ceremonies. There are also images of the 2011 Homecoming parade and bonfire in this transfer. The 6 floppy diskettes and 2 cds contain a combination of digital images and text documents.
