The University of Maryland College Republican Club, originally known as the Young Republican Club, was founded in 1948 to assist in the presidential campaign of Thomas E. Dewey. The group solidified its organization through participation in the 1956 Presidential election and has in subsequent years been particularly active during major political campaigns. Until 1971, the Club's focus was off-campus, but with the passage of the 26th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution, on-campus recruitment and campaigning became an important component of the group's activities. The records of the club include correspondence, constitutions, and news clippings and primarily document its interaction with national committees and inter-club dissension.
