Biographical Note

Alpha Chi, a coeducational honorary society, was founded at Southwestern University in 1922 when faculty and students recognized a need to honor students for academic excellence and exemplary character. On February 22, 1922, representatives met and adopted the name “Scholarship Societies of Texas.” At the annual council meeting in 1927, applications for membership were accepted from Louisiana and Arkansas colleges, and the name was changed to Alpha Chi. By 1970, the society expanded into three additional regions, bringing the number to five regions with chapters nationwide. There are currently seven regions and a chapter in Puerto Rico.

The Greek letters are initials, which represent the Greek words ALETHEIA, meaning truth, and XAPAKTHP, meaning character. The society honors students from all academic disciplines and seeks to make “scholarship effective for good.” Southwestern University is the official repository for the records of Alpha Chi. Additional information about Alpha Chi and its history can be found in Robert Sledge’s 1997 book Scholarship and Character: Seventy-five Years of Alpha Chi.



Scope and Content Note

The collection begins with a minute book ranging in dates from 1924-1931. In addition to minutes, the book also contains documents on the society’s founding and correspondence. The bulk of the collection is made up of correspondence, financial and business papers, the society newsletter (Alpha Chi Recorder), manuals, sponsor handbooks, constitution revisions, meeting minutes, recent conference T-shirts, audio cassettes, pins and pinning ribbon, a framed charter, and wood and metal printer's blocks.

The papers are arranged in four series: two chronological, one alphabetical, and a subject series. The first is a chronological general series. The creator(s) of the papers is not known. They span 1970 to the present. Robert Sledge, who served on the National Council twenty-four years, 1973-87 and 1989-99, twelve of those as president, created a second series of papers ranging from 1970-1998. They contain information specific to his roles in the society and are also arranged chronologically. The third series is composed of new chapter correspondence arranged alphabetically. The dates cover the 1970’s. Earlier and later chapter correspondence can be found in the other two series. More papers and other materials were added in the summer of 1999. Current materials are continuously added to this series.

In addition to the official records of Alpha Chi, Southwestern also has materials related to the founding of the society and to its own chapter, Texas Alpha.
