At a meeting called for the purpose, and held on Wednesday, June 26, 1872, the day preceding the Annual Commencement, representatives of all the classes that had graduated being present, the following organization was effected :
ARTICLES OF ASSOCIATION AS ADOPTED JUNE 26, 1872, AND AFTERWARDS AMENDED.
I. The Alumni of Cornell University hereby constitute themselves an association to be known by the name of the Associate Alumni of Cornell University.
II. The object of this association is declared to be to promote in every proper way the interest of the University, and to foster among the graduates a sentiment of regard for each other and attachment to their Alma Mater.
III. All graduates of this University, who, by their diplomas are entitled electors of the University, are members of this association. All members of the Faculty of this University are honorary members of this association.
IV. The officers of this association shall consist of (1) a president; (2) vice-presidents to be elected as follows: one vice-president from the classes numbered from '69 to '74 inclusive, and one from each succeeding group of five classes, provided that when the last group shall number three classes it shall thereafter be entitled to a vice-president; (3) a corresponding secretary; (4) a recording secretary; (5) a treas
V. This association shall meet annually on the day preceding Commencement, at such hour as the executive committee shall determine. VI. Any proposition to alter or amend these articles of association must be made at a regular meeting and have the assent of two-thirds of the members present.
By an amendment to the charter of the University, passed May 15, 1883, permitting members of the Alumni, not present in person, to vote by written ballot at the annual election of Trustees, the Treasurer of the University is required to keep "a registry of the signature and
address of each alumnus." It is therefore important that each alumnus keep the Treasurer of the University informed of his full address (in cities, street and number) and notify him immediately of any change.
The following ordinance was adopted by the Board of Trustees, October 24, 1888: All graduates of the first degree, in any of the departments of Cornell University, and all persons who have been admitted to any degree higher than the first in said University shall be alumni of said University, and as such be entitled to vote for Alumni trustees under and in pursuance of the provisions contained in Chapter 763 of the Laws of New York, passed in 1867.

Former students can thus render a constant service to the University, and to successive classes as they graduate.
