Administrative history

The UBC Department of Classics initiated the Classics Club for its students in 1920. The first department head, Lemuel Robertson, was the Club's original sponsor, and meetings were often held in his home. Discussions were also held at the homes of Classics professors Harry Logan and O.J. Todd. Club activities included presenting papers by faculty and students, productions of Classical Greek plays, and social events. The Club was active through the 1920s and 1930s, then went into hiatus during World War II. It was revived when Logan became head of the department in 1949. It continued to flourish until the 1990s when undergraduate enrolment went into decline. The Club was dissolved in 1995. The Department of Classics was merged into the Department of Classical, Near-Eastern, and Religious Studies.
