Oriental Club

RIENTAL SOCIETY The Oriental Society was founded in 1889, its object being “to stimulate interest in the ethical, social, and religious ideas which have emanated from the Orient.” Membership was limited to upperclassmen, who participated in a variety of discussions and lectures under the guidance of club advisor Professor Wood. Toward the end of Professor Wood’s leadership, in 1919, student interest shifted drastically and the club failed to hold the interest of its members. It was decided that the club would be allowed to lapse until student interest was renewed, an event which did not occur until 1935. The organization was reformed in 1935, but there are no available records of its activities following its first meeting on November 11, 1935.
