The records of the Zeta Beta Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi include a 1958 Pledge Director’s Manual from the national organization in addition to national and chapter materials from 1970s through the early 1980s.

The national Alpha Delta Pi Sorority was established in 1851 as the Adelphean Society at Wesleyan College. It was the first secret society for college women. In 1905, the Adelphean Society's name was changed to Alpha Delta Pi. Chapters were installed at a number of colleges in the following decades, although the mother chapter was closed in 1916. The Zeta Beta Chapter at North Carolina State University was colonized in 1969 and installed in 1971, after an apparent false start in the late 1950s. The Zeta Beta Chapter remained active as of 2008.
