Biographical/Historical note

Phi Epsilon Kappa was founded in 1913 and describes itself as a “national professional fraternity for persons engaged in or pursuing careers in physical education, health, recreation, dance, human performance, exercise science, sports medicine and sports management.” Washington State College’s branch was organized during the 1931-1932 school year as Phi Epsilon, and became officially affiliated with Phi Epsilon Kappa as the Alpha Gamma chapter in late 1933. WSU’s chapter seems to have gone inactive circa 2002 or so.
