Series 3: Events, 1934-2003 Add to Shelf
Series 3 is comprised of records from Dads Day, Dads Weekend, and Dads Banquet events held at Oregon State University between 1934 and 2003. In the early years of the club, the Dads Banquet was held during Homecoming and Dads Day was held in winter term. The banquet and Dads Day events were later merged and, in 1962, Dads Day was expanded to Dads Weekend, and included events and activities across three days. These events were designed to showcase the university and encourage parental support and involvement. The Dads Club assisted in registering attendees, coordinating events, and providing activities for participants. The records document these efforts and include registration information,  "special letters" which were sent to targeted guests, correspondence, financial data, follow-up reports and newsclippings. The series also includes programs produced for these events between 1934 and 1975.
