College News and Departmental Notes: The Women's Discussion Club
by Departmental notes - 1917
In 1912 the women of Professor McMurry's classes in supervision organized the group which has since been known as the Women's Discussion Club. The machinery of the club is delightfully simply; it is really not “organized" at all in the usual meaning of that term. Membership is open to all women of Teachers College who are interested in educational problems; a presiding officer is chosen, and committees are arranged for by her as needed. The meetings which are held every second Monday, follow a plan which is distinctly original; a simple box luncheon is served and while it is being eaten the club members listen to an interesting talk by some member of the College faculty. After the crumbs are cleared away a lively discussion usually follows.
