Biographical history

The first meeting of the Political Science Club was held in January, 1958. The Club's first President was Archie Stone. The main objective of the Club was the discussion of current political problems, whether domestic or foreign, with or without the aid of the speakers. According to the Club's Constitution, all members of the University of Alberta at Calgary were members of the Club. The Club was non-partisan and examined the views expressed by the various political parties in their discussions. Aside from their weekly meetings, the Club invited elected members of the political parties to speak at seminars and Forums.

In 1961, the Political Science Club hosted a seminar for prominent speakers from the four major political parties. Speakers included Premier T. Douglas of Saskatchewan, Premier E.C. Manning of Alberta, Mr. Jim Coutts of the Young Liberal Association, Dr. Michael Oliver of the New Democratic Party and the Hon. Douglas Harkness, Minister of National Defense. The event was run by the Political Science Club with the aid of the UAC Liberal Club and the UAC Conservative Club.
