Table of contents What's This?
Record Series 650 contains scrapbooks produced by the active members of Chi Alpha Delta Sorority. Included are two commemorative scrapbooks documenting Chi Alpha Delta's 50th anniversary celebrations in 1979 and a history of the sorority from 1929-2002. The 50th anniversary scrapbook contains contemporary photographs of charter and early members and newspaper clippings from the 1930s and 1940s.
The Chi Alpha Delta Sorority is the first Asian American sorority in the United States. Chi Alpha Delta was organized in May 1928 by fourteen charter members, under the guidance of Helen Matthewson Laughlin, Dean of Women (1919-1946). The sorority's founding mission was to promote friendships, cooperation, and social activities among Japanese women students at UCLA. Chi Alpha Delta was officially recognized by UCLA on April 5, 1929 and was granted full university privileges in 1962. The sorority is now open to all women students.
