1912

Literary Societies for men and women appear in 1912-1913 when football star George Journeay founds the Owl Literary Society. Men also start the short-lived Tower Literary Society in 1913 and the popular Riceonian Literary and Debating Society on January 30, 1914. Social life centers on the literary societies.
