Name of creator
Dorothy “Dot” Beatrice Osborne (née McRae) was born in Vancouver, British Columbia. After graduating from Prince of Wales High School, she received a teaching certificate from Vancouver Normal School (1934) and a Bachelor of Arts degree from UBC (1935). In 1936 she was elected Vice President of the Alumni Association. She was a lifelong member of the Delta Gamma Fraternity, joining in 1932. In 1946 she became a member of the PEO (Philanthropic Educational Organization) Sisterhood.
The Graduating class of 1935 first met for a formal reunion in 1955 for the twentieth anniversary of their graduation. The class had elected a “permanent class executive,” which planned many of the events. The reunion included graduates in arts, science, and agriculture. From 1955 through 1995, the class met every five years. Events were typically held during Homecoming in the fall, but the 55th reunion was held in July.
In 1985 the class established an endowment for The Graduating Class of 1935 Scholarship, which is awarded to a student with outstanding academic achievement with preference given to a student demonstrating financial need.
The material was collected by Dorothy Osborne and held by the Osborne family before being given to UBC Thunderbirds historian Fred Hume who deposited it with University Archives in August 2016.
Scope and content
The collection consists of correspondence, photographs, newsletters, and other materials related to the UBC graduating class of 1935 and the various reunions and alumni activities associated with that class.
