Albert Ross Society
Previous/other names: English Undergraduate Society
Prominent date(s) of activity: c. 1990 - present
Activities: The Albert Ross Society sponsored socials and wine & cheese events, sent delegates to literary conventions, went on field trips, travelled, hosted creative writing workshops, and raised money for philanthropic causes.
Note(s): The Albert Ross Society was named after an undergraduate student who had written an English paper on the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, without having read the poem, by incorporating what he overheard about the poem from other students. The student, having misunderstood the word "Albatross", re-invented the character of the bird as that of a man named "Albert Ross."
