Record of the Contemporary Club, student society, University of Glasgow, Scotland
Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Economics Club of the University of Glasgow was formed in 1930 as a student society. The object of the club was to "afford an opportunity of considering and discussing problems of economics, in the various bearings of the science, i.e. in industry, social science, and political science". Meetings were to be held where a paper would be read by a guest speaker or member of the society which would then be discussed.
The club was administered by a committee consisting of a president, secretary, treasurer and no less than 2 other ordinary members of the club. The committee was elected each year at the annual general meeting. The committee also elected an honorary president and 2 honorary vice-presidents.
At the beginning of the 1932 session, the club amalgamated with the Glasgow University International Society to form the Contemporary Club . This club continued the work of the Economics Club and the International Club, holding meetings were papers dealing with modern economic and political theory and historical subjects could be read and discussed. At least 6 meetings were held a year. An executive committee consisting of president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and at least three committee members administered the club who were elected at the annual general meeting held in the summer term. It appears that the club ceased in the early 1940s.
