Scope and Content Note

The records of the Alpha-Sigma Chapter (NC State's chapter) of the Kappa Phi Kappa fraternity include the chapter's by-laws, correspondence, financial information, member information, meeting minutes, photographs and slides, information on pledging and intitiation, and other general information about the chapter, its members, and its activities. Also contained in this subgroup are some materials from the Kappa Phi Kappa National Office, including primarily copies of publications and information packets from national meetings. Materials range in date from 1922 to 1980.

Historical Note

The Kappa Phi Kappa Professional Education Fraternity was founded at Dartmouth College in 1922 as a national honorary society for students studying education and teaching. A chapter of Kappa Phi Kappa, the Alpha-Sigma Chapter, was established at NC State in 1931, initially acting as a branch of the Sigma Chapter, which was established at Wake Forest College (University) in 1926. Membership in the chapter was limited to male students in high academic standing in the education program, who were of at least junior class status. The Alpha-Sigma Chapter remained active through the 1968-1969 academic year, and appears to have begun the 1969-1970 academic year as an active chapter, but went defunct sometime during the fall semester of 1969. The Kappa Phi Kappa fraternity itself has since gone defunct, though some chapters of the fraternity continue to operate independently at the universities where they are located; these fraternities have since redefined their membership guidelines to allow membership to both male and female students.
