Handwritten minutes from the East Carolina Teachers Training School (ECTTS) Student Government Association meetings dated January 9, 1912 to March 10, 1914. The minutes begin with the founding and purpose of the formation of the Student Government Association in 1912. From there, the minutes describe life and relevant student concerns at the college.
