MSU Circle K International. Organizational Records and Scrapbooks, 1983-Ongoing. SMHC Manuscript Collection 227. 3 Hollinger boxes, 4 oversize boxes, 2 records boxes. 7.29 cubic feet.

Abstract:

The MSU Circle K International Collection primarily consists of scrapbooks from the early 1980s through the present. These scrapbooks, put together by club members, demonstrate the activities the club was engaged in from year to year. These activities include fundraising, volunteering, club functions (banquets, parties, meetings, etc.), as well as participation in regional and national conventions. The remainder of the collection contains organizational records in addition to miscellaneous club-related materials.

Historical Note:

Circle K originated as a fraternal society in 1936, but became a service-oriented organization in 1947. Current membership is 12,288 college students on 507 campuses in fifteen nations in North and South America, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, and West Africa. Circle K is a co-educational service, leadership development, and friendship organization, organized and sponsored by a Kiwanis club on a college or university campus. It is a self-governing organization and elects its own officers, conducts its own meetings, determines its own service activities, and establishes its own dues structure. The mission of Circle K International is to develop college and university students into responsible citizens and leaders with a lifelong commitment to serving the children of the world.

MSU Circle K supports Kiwanis' goals and service initiatives. Claire Faust has been advising or assisting MSU Circle K since it was organized in 1978 in Mankato. Other advisors working with Claire over the years include Carl Clavedasher, Harley Mohr, and Daardi Sizemore. Membership typically ranges from 20-30, averaging around 24 students per years. Students regularly accept awards for their efforts, and have received the "Volunteer of the Year" award at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Students and advisors can also receive awards at district conventions, and winners move on to the national convention. Students regularly attend these national conventions, with the largest delegation from MSU traveling to Boston with advisor Claire Faust and his wife Hazel during the 1986-1987 academic year. (Information obtained from Daardi Sizemore, faculty advisor, Claire Faust, Kiwanis advisor, this collection, and www.circlek.org)

Scope and Content:

The MSU Circle K International Collection contains scrapbooks from 1983 to the present. These scrapbooks, put together by club members, demonstrate the activities the club was engaged in from year to year. These activities include fundraising, volunteering, club functions (banquets, parties, meetings, etc.), as well as participation in regional and national conventions. The remainder of the collection contains two years of organizational and membership records in addition to other miscellaneous club-related materials. In the subject headings, these records are labeled according to their visible dates and also the binder from whence they came.

Many of the older scrapbooks are increasingly displaying the signs of aging, such as yellowing of magnetic pages and paper deterioration. In order to provide an enduring record of these scrapbooks, they have been meticulously scanned, printed, and copied to compact disk. Some binders have caused some of the damage to the contents and have consequently been separated for preservation purposes. The binders have collectively been placed in a records box. Less aged scrapbooks with fewer preservation concerns have remained intact to maintain their originality.

Restrictions:

There are no restrictions on use of this collection for research purposes. The researcher assumes full responsibility for observing all copyright, property and libel laws as they apply.
