PHOENIX – A collaboration between the State of Arizona Research Library and the Arizona State Organization of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International led to the creation of a digital collection that highlights the historical work of women educators across Arizona. The History of Arizona State Organization of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International collection includes chapter reports that contain details like service projects, scholarships and grants, chapter activities, and biographies of influential chapter members.
"DKG members have been an integral part of education in Arizona, as teachers and administrators, as legislators and community members. We are pleased to have the history of our organization as part of the Arizona Memory Project," said Arizona State Organization President Carmen Wendt.
Researchers of education and women in Arizona will find documents covering the history of the Organization from 1936 through 2006. The collection is available on the Arizona Memory Project and can be viewed indefinitely on any digital device at http://go.azsos.gov/asodkgsi.
