The Classical Association of South Africa, 1908 - 1956

W.J. Henderson


This report on the existence and activities of the Classical Association of South
Africa which have recently come to light (in the case of the 1908-1910 CASA) or
more prominently to the fore (in the case of the 1927-1956 Association), is a
prequel to earlier ones for the period 1956 to 1981.1 The present account is based
mainly on a Minute Book for the Stellenbosch Branch of the Classical Association
of South Africa, which was founded in August 1927, was active until September
1935, was resucitated in May 1952 and, despite sporadic efforts to keep it alive,
was defunct by 1955. As in the case of its predecessors, this report concentrates on
the people who were involved with the Association and thus deserve recognition,
and also on the structures, activities and spirit that preceded and also left their mark
on the later Association.
