The Ivy Society, originally known as Ivy Leaf, was the honor society for the junior class in Arts and Sciences. The Ivy Society was formulated to foster class spirit in the junior class as well as to do away with "factional feeling which may exist on the Hill," though these two goals were somewhat contradictory. For many years the Ivy Society's main activity was the preparation and production of the Ivy Book, a handbook for the college, which became an essential publication for incoming students from its first appearance in the 1902-03 academic year. It was an annual publication which ceased in 1971, when it was replaced first by a student handbook produced by the college, and then by the Pachyderm.
