Administrative history

The University of British Columbia Graduate Historical Society was established by former UBC history students in the April of 1934 to "encourage among graduates in history an interest in the discussion of historical subjects." The Society served as a gathering place for former UBC history graduates. In addition, it recognized the best student in the History graduating class through the endowment of a prize. Helen R. Boutlier (Arts '34) served as the first president of the Society, which existed only until 1944.
