The Smiffenpoofs formed in 1936 after a group of Smithies attended a Yale picnic where the Whiffenpoofs were performing. The ladies were so impressed by the Whiffs’ camaraderie and musicality that they decided to form the first women’s collegiate a cappella group in the nation, modeling their sound after the Whiffs’ and adopting a derivative name in their honor. As the story goes, on November 23rd, 1936, Smith president William Allan Neilson gave his official approval to the group, gifting them with a leather-bound journal in which to record their history.
