Elmer T. Thompson, Director of International House, wrote an introduction and welcome for the "International Students House News." In the brochure were club listings for Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, German and South American students. Events throughout the year included lectures hosted by various groups on their respective cultures. For example: "Social and Economic Aspects of South America," and "German Night." The South American Students Club wrote, "The dogma of our South American Students Club shall be to offer the generous hand of friendship to all the peoples of the earth, convinced that if it is really true that order and internal peace repose on the truth 'that hatred is barren and that only love is fertile,' this truth acquires the character and firmness of a dogma in international relations."
The Graduate School of the University established research work in Latin-American History.
