Kappa Phi Zeta was an honorary professional library association founded in 1926 with six charter members on the initiative
of Emily Collins Heyler and Katherine Fort Stickney. By November 10, 1926 the sorority was officially recognized by the Associated
Students of the University of California at Los Angeles. In 1927, the organization received an organization charter as a professional
honorary library sorority. Two years later, the Kappa Phi Zeta applied for and received the status of non-profit organization
by the State of California. In 1931, the constitution and bylaws were approved, which established Kappa Phi Zeta as a national
sorority. A Beta Chapter at the University of California briefly existed from 1928-1930.
