Scope and Content Note

This series consists of the Clio Hall Reporter produced by or for Winthrop University. The Clio Hall Reporter was a publication produced by the Winthrop student body which reported on Debate League meetings and minutes, and also included articles and anecdotes. It also summarized the several rounds of debate held on campus between Winthrop clubs (International Relations Club (IRC), Debater’s League, the Freshman Debater’s League, the Society of Clionides, the Strawberry Leaf, and) tournaments (Dixie Forensic Tournament and the Grand Eastern Tournament) against representatives from several other colleges. Among some of the topics of debate were: “Resolved that Congress should be empowered to fix maximum hours and minimum wages for industry,” “Government Ownership and Operation of Railroads,” “the United States should follow a policy of strict (economic and military) isolation toward all nations engaged in armed international or civil conflict.”
