The Delta Kappa Gamma Society was founded on May 11, 1929, in Austin, Texas, by Dr. Annie Webb Blanton, with eleven other key women educators. Many new chapters in many states were formed in the following years.
In 1942, Nellie I. Gale, Grace Faulkingham Gilmore, Virginia D. Marston, Louise B. Miller, Carrie H. Rowe, and Dr. Edith M. Patch were initiated into Delta Kappa Gamma as National Members. In Augusta on June 19, 1943, these six national members along with nine other outstanding women educators from southern Maine became the Founders of Alpha Psi State Chapter.
The material was donated over several years and more accruals are expected. The records were arranged in series to reflect the organizational structure of the organization.
