The materials found in this online exhibit are from the Alpha Delta Phi Records, which were transferred in 2016 from the Robert McKelvey Board Room in the Alpha Delta Phi House to Special Collections & Archives. From September 2016 to April 2017 these records, which date from 1832-2017, were arranged, rehoused in archival boxes and folders, and described in a finding aid available through SC&A. This exhibit highlights items that represent Alpha Delta Phi’s commitment to academic excellence, dedication to Fraternity and Society, and continued support of and contributions to the performing arts. From the Adelphic Educational Fund for supporting student intellectual growth, the Chapter House which hosts various literary and educational events for Wesleyan students, the Star & Crescent Eating Club, and musical inspiration, ΑΔΦ has positively contributed to Wesleyan University and the larger society in numerous ways throughout its 161-year history.
This online exhibit was created in conjunction with the onsite exhibit "Academics, Dedication, Performances: Alpha Delta Phi and Wesleyan," which was on display at Special Collections & Archives in Olin Library from May 15 - November 1, 2017. Both exhibits were curated by Stephanie T. Gold, Alpha Delta Phi Processing Archivist.
