Identifier: Z15-028

Content Description

In the early 1900s, alumni activities at Northeastern University were organized by each department. In 1927 William C. White, who later became Executive Vice President of Northeastern University (NU), was appointed the first Alumni Secretary. Rudolf O. Oberg replaced White in 1929 as Alumni Secretary of the Day Colleges. Oberg expanded the role of organizing alumni events and furthering alumni relations, and due to his efforts, an alumni office was created in 1943, with Oberg as Director of Alumni Relations. An Alumni Federation was formed in 1946 to combine the alumni activities and interests of the Day Colleges, School of Law, and School of Business. In 1960 the Office of Alumni Development was formed to take over alumni fund raising from Alumni Relations. The collection consists of three items: 1. A framed photograph captioned "First Graduating Class College of Criminal Justice, June 1972." 2. A framed poster from the 100th Commencement Weekend, 2002. 3. A panoramic photograph labeled "18th Annual Field Day, Northeastern University Day Division at Riverside, June 9, 1928." The collection is unprocessed. Accessioned 2015 Mar 27.
