Calliopean Society
The Catalogue of Members of the Calliopean Society, a Yale literary society, formed in 1819. The society was formed when a "Southern" party within the Linonia Society broke away because of the election of a Northern president within the society. Until its dissolution in 1853, the Calliopean Society was composed of students from the Southern States.
