The material in this collection documents the foundation of the Star and Crescent Club, its assimilation into a national fraternity, and the financial and social ventures of the fraternity through the early 1990s. Illustrated in papers, blueprints, photo albums, and clothing, this collection is interesting not only for Theta Chi brothers curious about the history of their organization at Gettysburg, but for anyone wishing to follow the development of fraternity culture at Gettysburg since the middle of the 20th century. In addition to the materials housed in Special Collections, donor Jeff Glisson also intends to send related materials to Theta Chi National. These materials include various meeting minutes from 1963 to 1989, an historian’s book chronicling from 1952 to 1978, issues of The Deltacron, Articles of Incorporation, responsibility lists for vice president and secretary, and rush brochures from the 1960s and 1970s.
