The 1904-1905 season of the Virginia Glee Club was directed by Robert Blakely Crawford, a student. The Glee and Mandolin Clubs performed jointly during this period. Officers of both clubs included Thomas P. Bryan, president, William Nelson Page, acting president, John Hume, secretary, William McCulley James, manager, Howard Hume, assistant manager, and I.M. Walker, 2nd assistant manager.[1]

In March 1905 the Clubs performed a concert in Baltimore which was reviewed by the Baltimore Sun,[2] and another concert in Alexandria, Virginia on March 10.[3] The Glee Club also sang at the installation ceremony of University of Virginia President Edwin A. Alderman on April 13, 1905.[4]
