Series Description:

The Benevolent Society was formed in 1814 by twenty-nine members who met in the chapel and adopted a constitution for the purpose of assisting "indigent young men of promising talents and of good moral character in procuring an education at this college." The society was to receive donations in books, furniture and money. A committee of the society, including members of the junior and senior classes, made awards to deserving students with the consent of the executive government of the College. In 1826 the society accepted an Act of Corporation and dissolved itself. This was followed by the formation of the Auxiliary Benevolent Society of Bowdoin College, a strictly student organization which advised the corporated Benevolent Society. In this collection of accounts, constitutions and records, no society material seems to have survived after 1831.

Series Description:

The Theological Society of Bowdoin College began under the administration of President Appleton. Little is known about the society prior to 1836 because its records were destroyed in the 1836 Maine Hall fire. The preamble of the society's 1836 constitution states the society was interested in the "inquiry 'what is truth';" the group was centered around the study and debate of religious matters. Its meetings were indefinitely suspended in 1850 after suffering a considerable lack of student interest and falling into debt. The series contains acceptance notes, librarian's books, treasurer's reports, and other records.

Series Description:

The African American Society was formed by students in 1968 to increase awareness in the Bowdoin community of the heritage and contributions of black Americans. Since 1969 the Little-Mitchell house, which was renamed the John Brown Russwurm African American Center in 1979, has been the base of the society. The center's library, meeting rooms and social space facilitate the African American Society in providing educational, political, and social support for people of African descent at Bowdoin, and a forum for the exchange of ideas in the Bowdoin community. The Society changed its name to the Black Student Union in 2018. The series contains announcements of events, programs, information on the dedication of the John Brown Russwurm Center, and other printed material.

Series Description:

The Bowdoin Jewish Association, which became the Bowdoin Jewish Organization (BJO) was established in February 1968 in order to provide Jewish religious, cultural, and social opportunities for Bowdoin students. In 2002 the BJO became the Bowdoin Hillel after affiliating with the national Hillel organization in Washington D.C. The organization presents lectures, shows movies, and sponsors other Jewish and secular activities to provide a sense of community and Jewish life. The series contains flyers, posters, programs, and other printed materials; two torahs (access restricted), the 1968 constitution, and typescripts of sermons delivered by Rabbi Maslin.

Series Description:

The Y.M.C.A. branch at Bowdoin College developed from the College's Praying Circle Society, which voted to become a branch of the Young Men's Christian Association, (Y.M.C.A.) in 1882. The Bowdoin Y.M.C.A. received printed material from the national Y.M.C.A., and students attended conferences with Y.M.C.A. students at other colleges. In addition to holding student prayer meetings and meetings addressed by a faculty member or visiting clergyman, the Bowdoin Y.M.C.A. promoted service. Activities included textbook aid to needy Bowdoin students, leadership in Brunswick boys' gymnastic clubs, and financial assistance to missionaries in India and Labrador. In the late 1920's the Bowdoin Y.M.C.A. became the Bowdoin Christian Association. The series contains a constitution, correspondence, invitations, programs, records, reports, and other printed material.

Series Description:

The names Bowdoin Christian Association and Y.M.C.A. were used interchangeably for a number of years; the association formally became the Bowdoin Christian Association in the late 1920's. The Bowdoin Christian Association carried on many of the activities of the Y.M.C.A., inviting clergy to campus, conducting bible study, and leading discussion groups on various aspects of Christianity. From 1954 to 1962 the organization was known as the Bowdoin Interfaith Forum, and from the 1970's, as the Bowdoin Christian Fellowship. Despite the name changes, the aim of the organization remains the formation of a close-knit community of Christians and those interested in learning more about Christianity through music, bible study, prayer and fellowship. The series contains correspondence, flyers, newspaper clippings, programs, and other printed material.

In 1954 the Bowdoin Christian Association became known as the Bowdoin Interfaith Forum with the aim of attracting more Catholics and non-Christian students, thereby increasing membership. With its new name, the Bowdoin Interfaith Forum continued activities such as inviting clergy to speak at chapel service and conducting religious discussion through religious forums. Unsuccessful in engaging broader student involvement, the Bowdoin Interfaith Forum resumed the name Bowdoin Christian Association in 1962.

Series Description:

WBOR (91.1 FM) is a non-commercial, community radio station chartered to the President and Trustees of Bowdoin College. WBOR plays music of all types, as well as featuring sports and news programming. Prior to 1951 a weekly radio program "Bowdoin-on-the-Air" was presented by Bowdoin undergraduates through the facilities of station WGAN in Portland. As the result of a gift from the Bowdoin class of 1924, a radio station was built on campus in 1951 on the second floor of Moulton Union and was called WBOA (Bowdoin-on-the-Air). In the late 1950's the campus station became FM and was called WBOR (Bowdoin-on-Radio). The series contains program guides and other printed material.

Series Description:

The six volumes in this series contain records of voluntary student prayer meetings including their constitution, members and attendance, prayers, comments on lectures by attending ministers and faculty members, and statements about the moral and religious condition of the College. Based on groundwork laid a few years earlier by a small number of religiously oriented tutors and students, the Praying Society originated in 1815 and officially changed its name to the Praying Circle in 1835. Meeting in student rooms or recitation rooms, the students supported the temperance movement on campus, foreign missions, and corresponded with similar student societies on other campuses. In 1882, the Praying Circle disbanded, voting to become a branch of the Young Men's Christian Association (Y.M.C.A.).

Series Description:

The BGSA (Bowdoin Gay-Straight Alliance) received its charter from the Student Executive Board in 1980. In the last half of the 1980's the organization was known as BGLSA (Bowdoin Gay/Lesbian-Straight Alliance), in the 1990's as B-GLAD (Bisexual Gay Lesbian Alliance for Diversity), in the early 2000's as BGSA (Bisexual Gay Straight Alliance), and then back to BGSA (Bowdoin Gay/Straight Alliance) beginning 2002-2003. By 2004 the student-led group was known as the Bowdoin Queer Straight Alliance (BQSA). Despite name changes, the goals of the organization have remained the same; to provide a support group for people who wish to discuss relationships of all types and to inform the Bowdoin community of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer issues. The bulk of the material is from the 1980's and early 1990's. The series contains chronological files, correspondence, flyers, financial records, and miscellaneous printed material.

Series Description:

Possibly an outgrowth of a Brunswick Film Society which scheduled films on campus in the 1960's, the Bowdoin Film Society, a student organization, sponsored films on campus in the 1970's and used box office proceeds to buy films for the permanent collection and to finance some student film work. As part of an affiliated English course, the society made annual awards to Bowdoin students recognizing achievement in technical and creative film making. In the mid 1980's the society was no longer involved with the English class and annual awards, and shortly thereafter became the Bowdoin Film and Video Society. The society's name changed again in the early 2000's to the Film/Video Society, but continues bringing a variety of movies to campus that are free and open to the public. The series contains flyers and posters announcing upcoming movies.
