This series consists of materials of the Alumni Association of the School of Mines. Annual alumni list booklets, drafts of alumni news articles, fundraising materials and reports for the Engineering Fund, and correspondence regarding a civil engineering badge are included in this series. Also found within are the Association's governance documents: its constitution and bylaws as well as a certified Photostat copy of the Alumni Association of the School of Mines certificate of incorporation. Alumni events materials in this series represent annual dinners and meetings. The bulk of this series concerns the Committee of Ten of the Alumni Association of the School of Mines. Correspondence between committee members, faculty, and alumni, committee meetings minutes, research into the School's curriculum, subcommittee reports on departments of the School, and the committee's final report to the Alumni Association and the Trustees of Columbia College form the Committee of Ten's records.
