Biographical/Historical Note

The Century Club was a gentleman's club in Athens, Georgia, organized in 1908.

Dr. R.P. Brooks, later Dean of the School of Commerce and then Dean of the Graduate School, was named secretary of the society and editor of The Alumni Record. The publication was started principally to support the first major alumni fund-raising effort, the War Memorial Fund. This campaign led to the completion of the building now known as Memorial Hall.

Andrew Cobb Erwin was the mayor of Athens, Ga (1918-1921) and a delegate to the Democratic National Convention from Georgia.
