The records of the University of Michigan Fraternity Office cover the period 1922-1964. The provenance of the records is unclear. The records appear to have been created in the offices of the Dean of Men, Dean of Women, and the Interfraternity Council, in addition to the Fraternity Office. The records are divided into two series, Topical Files and Greek Organizations.
There are also materials relating to Theta Nu Epsilon, an underground fraternity that generated concern among college administrators across the nation and a 1960 hazing incident involving Theta Xi fraternity. Also of interest are the files on Alpha Kappa Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta, two sororities formed for African American women.
The documentation of this office is in general scant; the bulk of the documentation covers the years 1958-1964.
