Excerpt from Alpha Kappa Psi Handbook: A Manual for Nu Chapter

It is true that at various times many articles dealing with specific phases of secret society organization and the Fraternity in general have appeared in the publication, The Diary of Alpha Kappa Psi. Yet these newer chapters, and the still newer men, know nothing of the immediate past relating to their brotherhood. Even the Boston University chapter does not possess a complete file of the General Fraternity Magazine; and even if it did it would be practically impossible for each member to read the particular matter which he should know.

The will of the chapter has been to publish a manual for the use of Nu Chapter. Undoubtedly it will be of benefit to the other chapters also. The pamphlet is to be issued to the members of the chapter in Boston University, to the Officers of the General Fraternity and other chapters, to college and university libraries, and the larger state and public libraries.

The material in these pages is not of a secret nature. It aims only to give you, whether or not you are a member of Alpha Kappa Psi, an encyclopedic idea of business education, and a short historical sketch of the Oldest and largest commercial fraternity in the United States - alpha kappa psi.

The material contained in this brief work is not entirely original. Some material regarding fraternities in general has been taken from the Manual of American College Fraterni ties, by the late William Raimond Baird - permission being given by James T. Brown, Beta Theta Pi. A large amount of data and articles have been taken from back numbers of The Diary of Alpha Kappa Psi. Special mention should be made of the fact that articles by Dean Joseph French Johnson of New York University, Dr. D. Shaw Duncan, 'denver Uni versity; Dr. Walter E. Lagerquist, Northwestern Universityand A. K. Hallett, New York University, 1917, have been reproduced in part in this handbook. These have been blended together in a logical arrangement to form a handbook of information for commercial fraternity students. It has not been found advisable to give credit for each statement, so the authorities in general are stated.
