There is a student organization founded by Eugene Watson, the namesake of Northwestern State University’s Watson Library, that is still going strong after over 60 years. Alpha Beta Alpha is a fraternity dedicated to the promotion of library science. The organization was founded at NSU by the librarian Eugene Watson in the 1950’s. The 25 members of NSU’s Alpha chapter carry on the fraternity’s mission with monthly meetings centered around different themes. October’s meeting was held October 18th at the NSU library and, of course featured a Halloween theme. Even Watson, a mannequin who is the library’s mascot, joined in the fun with a wig and little black dress. NSU is joined by Pennsylvania’s Kutztown University in hosting a Alpha Beta Alpha chapter. Scholars’ College sophomore Jean McQuilling is the fraternity’s president.
