Ram's Head Theatrical Society was organized in 1911 by Payson Jackson Treat, history professor, two other faculty members
and seven students. It started as an elite, all-male honorary drama group. Later, a female counterpart known as the Ewe's
Head was formed. In the 1930's, the two groups merged. Ram's Head folded in 1971 due to financial problems. It was reorganized
in 1975 by Jon Mills and George McMillan with financial support from various university departments and offices. The Ram's
Head produces three shows a year: Big Game Gaities, Winter-One-Acts, and the Spring Musical.
