Historical Note

Organized clubs - both regional and college-sponsored - have been in existence since not long after the founding of Bates College. The oldest club on record in the Archives is the "Boston and Vicinity" club, whose first meeting was held in 1885. One of the precursor groups to today's College Key, the College Club, was founded in Lewiston in 1891. Currently, there are a number of local and regional clubs and networks for Bates Alumni, as well as the College Key.
