Historical note

The Activities Report Committee was organized to prepare reports on undergraduate activities at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for use by MIT representatives at the Intercollegiate Conference on Undergraduate Government. The committee was composed of twenty-seven members of Professor Winward Prescott's third-year class in report writing (E33) and was supervised by Prescott and the head of the English department, Henry Greenleaf Pearson. The general committee was divided into four subcommittees: student government, athletics, publications, and dramatics. Joseph C. Patty, MIT class of 1922, was the chair.
