Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Alumni Association was founded in February 1873 and the first permananent officers were chosen in June of that year: Hugh M. Finley, President; George F. Burkhart, Vice President; W.F. Herrin, Secretary; and Oscar L. Ison, Treasurer. A list of "Alumni et Alumnae" and current addresses was included in each edition of the college catalogue. In 1914 a formal constitution was adopted that provided for a five-member board. E.B. Lemon became the first regular alumni secretary in 1915 and started the alumni magazine, the OAC Alumnus. In 1926, the alumni magazine became the Oregon State Monthly; it was renamed the Oregon Stater in 1940 and has retained that title since.

In 1929, the alumni office was moved from the Commerce Building to the newly completed Memorial Union. The CH2M Hill Alumni Center was completed on campus in 1997; it was built as a conference and meeting center and as the home of OSU Alumni Association events and administrative offices.

The Alumni Association has been lead by several Alumni Secretaries and Executive Directors, including Godfrey Hoerner, 1919-1921; Zelta Feike Rodenwold, 1921-1926; E.C. Allworth, 1926-1936; George T. Scott, 1936-1938; Warren Reid, 1938-1943; Eunice Courtright, 1943-1946; John Fenner, 1946-1948; Robert Knoll, 1948-1961; Crawford H. ("Scram") Graham, 1961-1978; Donald S. Wirth, 1978-1999; Stephen Smith, 1999-2000; Dwayne Foley, 2000-2004; and Jeffrey S. Todd, beginning in 2004.
