Administrative history

The Literary Department was formed in 1917, encompassing the previously autonomous activities of the Men's Literary Society and the Women's Literary Society. In 1920 the department became known as the Literary and Scientific Department. The executive of the new department included the presidents of the literary societies, the Player's Club, the Musical Society, the Chemistry Society, Sigma Delta Kappa Society, the Agriculture Discussion Group, and Dr. Sedgewick as honourary president. The resulting composition of the Literary and Scientific Executive (L.S.E.) was to be one representative from each campus club which was not athletic and did not fall under the Engineering Undergraduate Society. The task of the L.S.E. was to promote, direct, and coordinate the activities of its constituent organizations. In 1955 the L.S.E. changed its name to University Clubs' Committee (U.C.C.), remaining a self-governing subsidiary of the Student's Council of the Alma Mater Society. At the same time, engineering clubs and some athletic clubs (Fencing and Badminton) were added to the constituent clubs of the U.C.C.
