Scope and Content Note

Among the numerous gems in the collection, are materials generated by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. These include, but are not limited to sorority by-laws, rituals and policies on hazing. Other materials featured in the collection are minutes taken by the Utopian Literary Club, historical programs from Warren Memorial United Methodist Church, reports written by McPheeters on the Auburn Branch Library and political brochures and letters, as well.
In addition, the collection consists of fascinating photographs and newspaper clippings which cover a host of subjects. Some of these deal with early Atlanta libraries, local universities, Auburn Avenue businesses, race relations and women's issues.
