ABSTRACT:

The Theta Xi Gamma Sorority collection consists of the organization’s meeting minutes, pledge lists, newsletters, program information, scrapbooks, and other miscellaneous materials. Professor Inez Rundstrom founded the group during 1920 as the Theta Rho Sorority.  According to the Theta’s constitution, members sought “to enjoy the greatest benefits of a social sorority and to exemplify the finest standards of social, academic, and Christian life.” Materials will be added to the collection as available.


HISTORICAL NOTE:

Professor Inez Rundstrom founded the Theta Rho Sorority during 1920.  The Theta Rho Sorority became the Theta Xi Gamma Sorority in 1924.  Due to unknown circumstances, the Theta’s were disbanded during 1934.  The sorority was reorganized by the Inter-Sorority Senate on 13 October 1939.

Information obtained from the collection and the Gustavian Weekly.
