History

Baylor Round Table began in March, 1904 in the parlor of Burleson Hall on the Baylor University campus. The seven founding members were: Mattie Sims Brooks, Kate Hayes Kesler, Laura H. Pool, Mary Augusta Newman, Jessie Brown Johnson, Viola Frizzell Hargrove, and Elizabeth Newman Eby.

In 1954, Claude Eager Johnson, Round Table's historian, wrote a history of the first 50 years, The Golden Mirror.

In 2004, Lois E. Myers wrote a history of the second 50 years, Embracing the Past, Anticipating the Future.

Baylor Round Table has published both of these volumes together and they are available for sale. Copies of the book can be purchased for $20. Contact Lois Ferguson, Baylor University, One Bear Place #97111, Waco, TX 76798-7111 or phone 254-710-8534.

For the 2006-2007 Anniversary Luncheon, Chris Wilkins created a Powerpoint Presentation honoring our past presidents. The presentation is divided into 3 parts for your viewing pleasure: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
