The records of the Xi Chapter (North Carolina's chapter) of the Epsilon Sigma Phi fraternity include membership information, meeting minutes, correspondence, photographs and other visual images, publications, financial information, and other general information about the chapter and chapter activities. Epsilon Sigma Phi (ESP) is a national honorary fraternity for professional members of state Cooperative Extension programs who have five or more years of service in a state program.

North Carolina's chapter of ESP (the Xi Chapter) was established in December of 1927 after Extension workers visited the first national conference of ESP that summer and petitioned for a chapter in North Carolina. Because the Cooperative Extension program in North Carolina was overseen by NC State, the state's chapter of ESP was also located at the university. The Xi Chapter remains active as of 2008.

Biographical/historical note

Epsilon Sigma Phi (ESP) is a national honorary fraternity for professional members of state Cooperative Extension programs who have five or more years of service in a state program. These programs traditionally promote activities and provide education to residents (primarily rural) throughout the state about agricultural and home economics topics. The first chapter of Epsilon Sigma Phi was formerly organized in Montana in January of 1927; North Carolina's chapter (the Xi Chapter) was established in December of 1927 after Extension workers visited the first national conference of ESP that summer and petitioned for a chapter in North Carolina. Because the Cooperative Extension program in North Carolina was overseen by NC State, the state's chapter of ESP was also located at the university. The Xi Chapter remains active as of 2008.
