Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Phi Delta Kappa, Alpha Theta Chapter Records, 1922-1988 (bulk are 1922-1960 and 1980-1988), were received unorganized and, upon processing, were rearranged to reflect the organizational structure of the fraternity. Papers submitted by PDK members were arranged topically. It should be noted that the records do not contain meeting minutes of the organization. The scrapbook, however, documents the early years of the fraternity.

The records include a history; bylaws; a summary of PDK at different levels (1986); a PDK handbook from UND (1980-1981); lists of officers and award winners (1983-1984); various newsletters; meeting notices and schedules; correspondence (1932 & 1981-1988); papers written or submitted by PDK members, either biographical, religious, or school related; and miscellaneous papers.

Also included are several photographs and a scrapbook (1922-1960). The scrapbook contains photographs of past presidents, membership listings, a written history, yearly histories and highlights, and photographs of many PDK members and groups. The scrapbook was separated and placed on the shelves adjacent to the collection, while the photographs were separated and placed in Photograph File Cabinets.
