RVGS February Program: “The United Foundation Trust, or Uftuddies”
“A secret society is a club or an organization whose activities, events, inner functioning, or membership are concealed from non-members.” As you can see, secret societies are meant to be just that – secret! So, what was it about the Southern Oregon University’s secret society, The United Foundation, or Uftuddies? We know this was a society of women PhDs who were active at the SOU from 1953 to 1968. What we don’t know: Why did they maintain secrecy? What was their purpose? Maureen Battistella, Assistant Affiliate and Research Anthropologist at the Southern Oregon University, will solve this mystery for you at the February Rogue Valley Genealogical Society’s Program, “The United Foundation Trust, or Uftuddies.”
Tuesday, February 18, 1:30pm-3pm, at the Jackson County Genealogy Library, 3405 S. Pacific Highway, Medford. Rogue Valley Genealogical Society Member Meetings and Programs are always free, and open to the public.
