Overview and metadata sections
No Subnote Content
The Biological Clubs Records documents the activities of two short-lived clubs related to the study of biology shortly after the department was formed at the University of Pennsylvania. The minute books record the decisions and programs undertaken by the clubs and the membership volume contains the names (men and women) and place of residence of the members. In addition to this there is a copy of the constitution of the Zoological Club of the University of Pennsylvania. The recollections of Dr. J.P. Morris provide some history and context of these clubs in their related fields.
The records are organized into four single-item series: Journal Club of the Biological Department, Biological Club, Zoological Club of the University Pennsylvania, Hstory.
Transferred from the University Libraries in 1974 (Accession 1974:14).
