Alumni Association Records
Scope and Contents
The Alumni Association Records are comprised of two series: General Office Files (1931-2001) and Pre-1950s Student Reminiscences (1993-1995). The collection is an artificial one, pulled together by Library staff, not the Alumni Association. General Office Files contains materials regarding awards, membership directories, correspondence, meeting minutes, and publications including newsletters. Pre-1950s Student Reminiscences is comprised of materials sent to the Alumni Association by members who graduated before 1950 for special editions of the “SDSU Report” devoted to this generation. The contributions were originally housed in binders, organized by the decade of graduation. All alumni represented in the folders are listed below.

San Diego State Normal School graduates met in May of 1906 to establish a group that eventually grew into the San Diego State University Alumni Association. The organization’s activities and membership fluctuated over the next forty years, but after the success of the Aztec News Letter for alumni throughout World War II, the Alumni Association was reestablished in late 1945. In the decades since, the Alumni Association has existed as a venerable resource and platform for connecting San Diego State University graduates, fundraising for university development, and recognizing university-wide personalities with awards.
