Graduates of the College of Mines met recently in the College building and organized the Alumni Association of the College of Mines.
L.A. Nelson, of the class of 1916, was elected president; John Schaffer, class of 1920, secretary and Fred L. Fox, class of 1922, treasurer.
The purpose of the alumni association is to boost the College of Mines, to work for the best football team in the southwest, and look after employment both for students in school and for graduates, and to work for a student body of 200 next year. The alumni decided to accept as associate members students who have completed one semester's work.
Two honorary members were elected, Tom Dwyer and Frank Groch, in appreciation of their interest and backing of the College. Mr. Dwyer was for a number of years coach for the football team and adjunct professor of engineering. The secretary will get in touch with all graduates and all former students in the near future, to enlist their co-operation in the Alumni Association work. Those present at the meeting were Lloyd A. Nelson, Fred L. Fox, John Schaffer, Gordon M. Smith, Oscar Theinheimer, Walton Sarrels, Tom Dwyer, Frank Groch and B.L. Coffey.
