Record Series 649 contains eight scrapbooks and one guestbook produced by the Alumnae members of the Chi Alpha Delta Sorority
between 1930 and 1983.
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.
