The Phi Chi Theta - Alpha Phi Chapter Collection includes records and artifacts of the Alpha Phi Chapter of the Phi Chi Theta national fraternity for business and economics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Organizational records cover the period from roughly 1981-1987, and include meeting minutes, bylaws, correspondence, duties of members and officers, ceremonial information, pledge applications and manuals, pledge examinations, committee information, biennial meeting information, convention information, and activity sheets. Four scrapbooks cover the periods 1959-1963 (at the Municipal University of Omaha) and 1984-1986 (at UNO). Scrapbooks include photographs, flyers, programs, and other information about the chapter. Artifacts include pledge pins, a guest book signed by pledges, initiation ceremonial letters, felt fraternity banner, and the Phi Chi Theta Ritual Book with handwritten annotations and notecards (1985).
The collection is open for research use. Manuscript collections and archival records may contain materials with sensitive or confidential information that is protected under federal or state right to privacy laws and regulations, the Nebraska Public Records Statutes (Neb.
