Were you impressed by last night's presidential debate? Did you think that the candidates finally got down to answering some tough, relevant questions? Or perhaps you think you are be a better debater then either of this year's presidential candidates! Maybe you are right, especially if you are a member of the debate society.
Tufts has a long history of fostering debate teams, such as the one pictured in this photo dating from 1908.
Debate teams from Tufts have also had a lot of success in formal debating contests. Here in the archives we even have a first place trophy from a varsity debate that took place in 1970! You can also check out other images of Tufts debating teams in the Tufts Digital Library.
