HISTORICAL NOTE:  In 1987, several graduates of Albany State College living in the LaGrange and Troup County areas expressed interest in organizing a local alumni chapter.  The organization meeting was held January 25, 1987, at the Ogletree Street Recreation Center in LaGrange.  The first officers were Clarice Reed, President; Nellie Stargill, Vice-president; Lynda Rutledge, Secretary; Ida F. T. Jones, Treasurer; Vonekea Broone, Reporter/Journalist; Grace Harvey, Parliamentarian; and Katie Darden, Chaplain.  The initial membership was eleven members.  During its existence, the membership raised funds for local scholarship recipients and sponsored ASC recruitment drives at local high schools.  Traci Jones of LaGrange was the first scholarship recipient.  The chapter dissolved in 1993.

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT:  The collection consists of correspondence with Billy C. Black, President of Albany State College and Prince H. Brown, Executive Secretary, ASC Alumni Association.  Also included are membership lists, yearly alumni reports of local activities, news articles, financial records, and on campus events in which local alumni participated.
