Overview and metadata sections

In 1931 students came together to form the Haverford College Debating Council with three goals 1) "To increase substantially the material reward for varistiy debating" 2) "To win a reasonable proportion of inter-collegiate debates by placing the best available team on platform" 3) "To make way for a continued influx of relatively inexperienced materials, with adequare and sincere assurances to this less experiened material of a fair and reasonable chance to participate in, at least, an alternative capacity, in outer-collegiate debates." Their minute book only includes entries for two meetings, one in September 1931 and one in October 1931.

This collection contains the constitution and a few pages of minutes from the Haverford College Debating Council.

This collection is arranged in one volume.
