** Can someone double-check this for me in the Aggie archives in Shields? My notes have Roberts as President in 1914, and then crossed off, and I have no idea what I meant by that at the time. I'm very non-trusting of non-primary source documents, being misled by them so many times about ASUCD, that I'd like a more definitive answer. I'm not in Davis or I'd do this myself. —BrentLaabs

Historical Notes

Peter Nguyen was the President who ushered in the modern era of ASUCD by proposing the Democracy at Davis constitutional amendment in 1995 which created the current system of government.

Andrew Donnell was the only ASUCD President to have committed suicide. He did so shortly after graduation.

Paul Rogers married the Academic Affairs Chair; the two them were later killed by her brother in front of their children.

Horace Hampton was the first non-white (black) elected officer in ASUCD, elected ASCA President in 1949. Sheryl Falstein was the first woman elected to the office of ASUCD President.

Charles Kinsley was the only ASUCD President to simultaneously serve as Editor (in Chief) of The California Aggie.

Bob Black was the ASUCD President who infamously signed away the campus bookstore, which the students owned, to the UC Davis administration. Incidentally, he also started the ASUCD Coffee House and Unitrans.
