History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

An early Columbia alumni association originally used to designate those classes older than the Early 80s and the Upper 80s (Classes 1880-1889) and the Forty-Niners (1890-1896), the last classes to graduate from the 49th Street and Madison Avenue campus. By the 1920s, any alum past his 30th reunion could join the Society of Older Graduates.
