Pan American Club

PAN AMERICAN CLUB The Smith College Pan American Club began in 1949 and its objects were 1) to promote better feeling and understanding between Latin and North America; 2) to give Latin American girls the occasion to meet North American girls and speak English; 3) to provide North American girls with a knowledge of Latin American countries; 4) to sponsor Latin American movies, lectures, and any other activities and to give receptions for visiting lecturers; and 5) to promote cultural relations which had been lacking on this campus. The group went about accomplishing these goals by holding meetings monthly and organizing numerous events such as Latin American movies, lectures and forums, dances, teas, and more. The only requirement for membership was a sincere interest in the goals and policies of the group and a willingness to devote time and energy to its causes. While the club earned initial respect for its ambitious goals, it ceased to exist as its own entity when it elected to merge with the International Students’ Club in 1952.
