The Mathetican Society was created in 1854, and was the leading undergraduate literature and debate club for the first four decades after the opening of Tufts College. Thomas H. Angell, A1858, led the effort to found the Mathetican Society, which became the first student society at Tufts College. Membership waned, and in 1896, the Mathetican Society officially disbanded, transferring its entire treasury to the Tufts Debating Union.
