SPECIAL CENTENNIAL REPORT
W"HEN IT CAME to telling the story of the first hundred years of the
Wis-
       consin Alumni Association, we felt that several possibilities were
open
 to us. The most logical of these choices seemed to be a chronological history
of
 the Association, tracing its development from 1861 to the present. However,
 we were not convinced that such an account would prove to be particularly
 stimulating. Instead of a long and tedious history, we decided that our
readers
 might prefer a quick look at the big stories which best represent the growth
 of the Association's program of service to the University.
     Thus we offer the following special section commemorating the one hun-
 dredth birthday of the Wisconsin Alumni Association. In this section we
have
 included contributions from Conrad A. Elvehjem '23, Don Anderson '25, and
 Louis P. Lochner '09. In addition, there is a report on the Centennial Dinner,
 and five stories, each treating a particular phase of the Association's
program of
 activity. As a conclusion to this Centennial report, we have included a
compen-
 dium of people who have made the University great over the past century,
 written by Andrew Hopkins '03.
     Thanks for this issue goes to Harry Steenbock '10 whose generosity allowed
 us to add sixteen pages to our July issue so that we might bring you this
story.
