The purpose of the Pen and Sword Society was, and is today, to honor those, who by their energy and successful efforts in furthering the prestige of the College in the past, show that they are willing and capable of exerting themselves in a special manner in the interest and welfare of the Alma Mater in the future. The collection consists of the official records of the Society between 1904 and 1943.
