Historical Note: The History and Sociology Club was a student organization at Troy State University-Dothan
during the mid-1990s. History professor Dr. Robert Saunders created the club to promote
the history department. Club members met monthly and organized fund raising activities,
took trips to historical locations, visited museums, and discussed topics relating
to history and sociology.
Scope/Content: This single spiral-bound scrapbook records activities of the Club during ca. 1998, including 2 car wash fund raisers and a "road trip" to visit the Alabama Department of Archives and History, Old Alabama Town, and the Alabama Shakespeare Festival in Montgomery. The scrapbook provides an excellent example of the aesthetics of "scrapbooking" that was faddish in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Compiler of the scrapbook is unknown.
Provenance: Received from Dr. Robert Saunders office
