The acoustics were excellent and, at the end of the club’s fl-tie Christmas dinners at the restaurant, after many a chair-tottering toast, the Kroks came in to serenade the members with melodies that echoed perfectly the mood of reconnection with a long-lost past.
The Hasty Pudding Club was born in September 1795, the brainchild of the poetically named Nymphas Hatch and a group of other Harvard juniors with Updike-worthy monikers you couldn’t possibly make up.
(Hasty pudding, a regional Native American dish of cornmeal mush usually flavored with molasses, combines a vaguely pumpkinesque taste with a perfect diarrhea consistency.) For a time, members were allowed to drink only malt liquor with their meals.

She then set up an ultra exclusive female club saying: "I realised it was ridiculous there were only four existing women’s clubs." Describing herself as "a social club whore", she launched it with a lavish £3,500 party at a chic Cambridge restaurant claiming her father Alfred had paid the bill.
Club members have closed ranks on the case but it appears that what started with Pomey allegedly taking out £200 or £300 every so often escalated until Gomes was allegedly taking £3,000 a week.

Thus the club had prospered exceedingly, and had been the instrument of introducing comfort and festive enjoyment to no small number of persons who might, and in all probability would, have had little to eat or drink, and, consequently, little cause for merriment, at that season.
Again, there is the Twelfth-cake Club, which comes to a head soon after Christmas, and is more of a lottery than a club, inasmuch as the large cakes are raffled for, and the losers, if they get anything, get but a big bun for their pains and penalties.
All these clubs, it will be observed, are plants of winter-growth, or at least of winter-fruiting, having for their object the provision of something desirable or indispensable in the winter season.

And when the clubs independently made the jump from fraternities to private social clubs around the turn of the century, three types, or tiers, of clubs emerged: Final clubs for upperclassmen, waiting clubs for sophomores and juniors aspiring to get into final clubs the next year, and freshman clubs.
The Spee Club traces its roots back to the Harvard chapter of the national Zeta Psi fraternity, from which it broke its ties in 1892, and adopted the name "the Spee" from the "Psi" in "Zeta Psi." The Spee was also a waiting club which eventually emerged as a final club.
Originally the club only admitted a total of 16 students each year—eight in the fall and eight in the spring—and all the members of the new club were freshmen.

Productions were initially performed exclusively for club members, but as their popularity grew, audience exclusivity waned.
The space was a dingy little building on the edge of the athletic field that the club secretary, Theodore Roosevelt, referred to as "the shed." In 1882, the club produced a landmark show that attracted national attention.
This national attention and financial success allowed the Pudding to construct the current clubhouse in 1888, and set the gold standard for all Pudding shows that were to follow.

For those in the know, the Hasty Pudding Social Club is seeking recognition as an official Harvard student group, and plans to open the first round of its fall punch process to all undergraduates.
The future of the Hasty Pudding Social Club has been a matter of discussion ever since the spring of 2000, when the University bought the Hasty Pudding building from the group's graduate board, the Institute of 1770.
As the club makes the transition from private affair to school-approved social group, it faces the daunting process of opening one of the school's most exclusive punch processes to the student body as a whole.

 The Harvard Crimson Online :: Print Article
To use the now Harvard-owned building for the club’s social functions, the Hasty Pudding Club must be a recognized student group and, therefore, fully comply with Harvard’s anti-discrimination policy.
Indeed, Andrea L. Olshan ’02, the club’s former president, accurately described the Pudding as “the first purely social organization to be accepted as a student group.” And that’s what it is: a once-secret society premised on ad hoc partying.
Until the Hasty Pudding is shown to be in violation of University rules, there is no reason that it or any other organization should lose official College recognition.

 Stirring the Pudding
In 1986, feeling a financial pinch, the Institute of 1770--an umbrella organization that governs the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the Hasty Pudding social club, and two student singing groups, the Pitches and the Krokodiloes--sold the land that the Pudding building sits on to Harvard.
Whether the Pudding Theatricals' long tradition of all-male casts will persist may be in doubt, but not, according to dean of the College Harry R. Lewis '68, because of this new arrangement.
Although the Pudding has thus far been judged technically to conform to College rules--it does invite women undergraduates to participate in all aspects of productions apart from treading the boards --Illingworth says he would be willing to talk about women appearing on stage in future.
