Philomathean Literary Society
Philo has one of the largest memberships of any organization on the campus. People who belong arc not "grinds” and "bores” but those who actually care for intellectual and social interests. Many of the purposes of Philo have been replaced by newer organizations, but this literary society still has its place in Peru's College.
Miss Grace M. Petersen, who is our faculty advisor and sponsor, is largely responsible for the success of this club. She has put forth much effort, and her opinions which are accepted as final have guided the society throughout the year.

The Philomathean Literary Society was organized in 1869, soon after the establishment of the school as a state institution. Through all these years it has been one of the most worth-while organizations on the campus. The society was incorporated under the laws of Nebraska in 1870, and its charter now hangs in the faculty room.
The purpose of Philo is to develop the social attributes of its members. The high standards and ideals of the group are maintained by expansion into every field of intellectual activity. The organization has a literary basis, but music and dramatics also play their part in the program. Today the usual entertainment includes music, speeches, and social discussions.
