The Associated Students of The University of Montana (ASUM) is the
university's student government organization. Founded in May of 1906, ASUM
serves as a forum for students to express their needs to The University of
Montana administration as well as to the Montana state government. From
1936-1965, the organization was known as the Associated Students of Montana
State University (ASMSU) reflecting the name change of the university. In its
early years ASUM operated a general store and the university bookstore; today
one of its primary functions is the allocation of money to student groups
through yearly student group requests and a once a year budgeting process.
This record group contains correspondence, budget records, general
store records, scrapbooks, miscellaneous materials, general ASUM meeting
minutes, Central Board Meeting Minutes and other records generated from
