Scope and Content Note

(A05-79; A06-23)
This Record Sub-Group contains organizational records of the University of Missouri-Columbia Alpha Beta chapter of the Delta Sigma Pi Professional Business Fraternity. The records consist largely of administrative records including: membership cards, lists, and directories; meeting minutes; correspondence; chapter by-laws and policies; organizational manuals; various publications including newsletters, official proceedings, and reports; and recruiting and rush materials. A small number of the records in this Record Sub-Group pertain to fiscal and budget matters. Additionally, the records include scrapbooks, photo albums, and photographs and negatives that document the annual membership and events of the Chapter. The original charter for the MU Chapter is also among the records in this Sub-Group.

Historical Note:

Delta Sigma Pi is a professional fraternity originally designed to promote stronger ties between business students and the business world. It was founded at New York University's School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance on November 7, 1907. The Alpha Beta Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi was organized in the spring of 1923 and installed at the University of Missouri on March 24 of that year.

Note to Researcher: More information of the Alpha Beta Chapter can be found at the following URL: http://missouri.dsp.org/.
