Administrative history

Established in 1928/29, the Agriculture Club succeeded the Agricultural Discussion Club and the Livestock Club at the University of British Columbia. Student members of the Faculty of Agriculture felt that the work of the old clubs overlapped to such an extent that more could be accomplished if they were amalgamated into a single organization. At the outset, the club had three primary purposes. First, it would encourage debating and public speaking amongst students in the Faculty of Agriculture and oversee teams' selection for inter-faculty debates. Second, it would arrange for outside speakers to come to campus to talk on agricultural topics. Third, it arranged for evening meetings in different members' homes at which agricultural topics could be discussed.
