The 1898 Microcosm included a brief history of the women's Harman Literary Society, as well as a list of its active members. Since its creation in October of 1896, the Harman Literary Society showed activity and creativity on campus. Along with the Belles Lettres and the Union Philosophical Societies, the Harman Literary Society participated with them to put on a program in celebration of Washington's birthday. Even though in 1898 the membership to the society was down, there was no decrease of interest in the society and that the "benefit derived per individual will probably compare favorably with that of a larger society."
