The Original Phi Beta Kappa Records
Excerpt from The Original Phi Beta Kappa Records: Including the Minutes of the Meetings From December 5, 1776 to January 6, 1781 at the College of William and Mary Williamsburg, Virginia and Also the Form of Initiation, the Constitution and the Form of Charter Party Authorizing the Establishment of BrancAll members of Phi Beta Kappa are aware that the history of the original Society is unique. Of the main facts we are now in full possession. For many years this was not the case, owing in part to the loss of the original records, and in part to the early transference of the Society's activities from Virginia to New England. The finding of the records has made possible an entire rewriting of the early history of the Fraternity.It is now over thirty years since the records were re-discovered. For a time they were only known through a manuscript copy. But in July, 1896, they were published in The William and Mary College Quarterly Historical Magazine, which was and still is edited by Dr. Lyon G. Tyler, President of the College, and have since been available to students, not, however, to the great majority of our members. Hence we take this occasion to reprint them that this unique original source of Phi Beta Kappa history may be generally available.For a history of the original society based upon a study of the original records our readers are referred to an article by the writer, printed in The Key, vol. i, no. 7, pp. 8-36. This was supplemented by an article in the following number entitled "Our Phi Beta Kappa Fathers in Public Life." These articles embodied the researches of the author, begun in 1890 when a student in theology at New Brunswick, N. J., the result of which was a paper read before the Alpha Chapter of New Jersey and published a year later in the Alpha of New Jersey Catalogue. This paper was expanded as a result of further study into an address delivered before the National Council held at Williamsburg, Va., September, 1907, entitled "Our Phi Beta Kappa Fathers in Fraternity and Public Life," and printed in the proceedings of that Council, and later in the articles in The Key.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
