Arrangement note

The Records of the Alpha Gamma Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa are arranged in seven series: Correspondence, Minutes, Financial Records, Newsletters, Other Records, Membership Account Records, and the Membership Roll. Within each series, except for the alphabetically arranged membership accounts and the numerically arranged membership rolls, the materials have been kept in chronological order. Some overlap exists, however, as the succeeding officers changed record-keeping practices.
