Organized into five series: I. Constitution & By-laws; II. Meeting Minutes & Reports; III. Membership Lists; IV. Oath of Office; V. Correspondence. Arranged chronologically.
Records pertain to the activities of the Steak and Chop Club, particularly meetings held at different locations throughout the state. Meeting minutes/reports are incomplete. Correspondence is primarily among the club's officers and to/from guests invited to the club's meetings. Some pre-1960 records are also on microfilm.
The initial accession of these records was filmed in 1974 as RG 120. It was decided that the records were better suited for the Manuscripts Collection.
The club was founded in 1938 by several staff members of the Oregon State University Federal Cooperative Extension Service for the purpose of gastronomy and good fellowship, and was loosely based upon similar clubs that existed in the 18th century. The first officers were H. A. Lindgren, "Top Sirloin" (president), and E. R. Jackman, "Little Chop" (secretary).
