Edward E. Potter Club Celebrates 75th Anniversary

In September 1931, the Edward E. Potter Club was formed "to keep alive the friendships made in undergraduate days, to promote the interests of State College by interesting men of character in the teaching profession, to maintain a high social standard among the men at State College, to cooperate more fully with the Alumnae Association, to keep our selves educationally alert." The Club promoted high educational and behavioral standards for the young men attending the New York State College for Teachers (as the University at Albany was then known) and encouraged its members as individuals and as a group to participate in service-related activities.

The Club was named in memory of Edward E. Potter, a student killed in France during World War I.

The Edward Eldredge Potter Club Alumni Association is an active organization that continues to meet during the University at Albany's Alumni Weekend and celebrated the 75th Anniversary in 2006 with a variety of activities.
