    History of the Harvard Chinese Students' Club

    The Harvard Chinese Students' Club held its first meeting 24 October 1908. The purpose of the Club was to give Chinese members of the Harvard student community an opportunity to socialize, discuss Chinese current events, and represent the Chinese people and their concerns to the wider Harvard community.
    It is unclear when the Club disbanded as no records date from after 1946. A new Chinese students club, the Harvard-Radcliffe Chinese Students Association, was founded in the late 1960s and was still in existence as of 2008.
