As an appropriate souvenir of the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the founding of Inde pendent Literary Society, the active members planned in the summer of 1905 to bring out a brief history of the organization. When the task had been fully entered into, however, its magnitude began to dawn upon the originators of the scheme. They found it impossible to get out a publication worthy of the Society in so brief a time. As the work progressed, too, the plan of the book was extended from a mere pamphlet to the more am bitions book form. This necessitated an increased expenditure of money and more detailed informa tion. Thus, almost three years have elapsed before the present modest little book has crept into print.
This stretch of time is accounted for, however, if one considers the almost endless correspondence necessary to get into communication with some four hundred and fifty former members of the Society, scattered throughout four continents. It must also be borne in mind that some of these alumni have been out of the University for twenty years.
