Collection scope and contents:
In 1890, Eta Sigma Mu was founded as the first club for women students at MIT. At first it was a select group, but that changed soon after. It was a social club holding regular Friday teas for its members and receptions more broadly for the Institute. In 1897, the name was changed to Cleofan. The collection contains meeting minutes notebooks and correspondence. The materials span from 1890 to 1937, with the bulk of the collection dating from the 1890s.

Majority of material found within 1890 - 1897; 1937
