Name of creator
In 1915, the Faculty of Arts at the University of Manitoba began appointing a senior stick and a lady stick. The faculty chose two students, one male and one female, out of the incoming senior class for the honour of being senior stick. The senior stick would act as the head of the arts student body and represent it in its dealings with the faculty. It is believed that the title "Senior Stick" originated out of the custom of presenting each appointee with a cane. In 1975, the faculty dropped the title of "Lady Stick" and instead allowed women to run for senior stick. Faculty of Arts students continue to elect a senior stick.
The series was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in 1980 and 1982 by representatives of the Faculty of Arts. The series was originally placed in its own fonds until 2002 when, due to its provenance, it was added to the Faculty of Arts fonds (UA 27). This series can still be found under its original retrieval number, UA SC 34.
Scope and content
The series contains two chronological lists of the names of the senior sticks and lady sticks. The first lists the names of the Faculty of Arts senior sticks from 1915 to 1982. The second list contains the names of the Faculty of Arts lady sticks from 1915 to 1974.
