Triangle Fraternity Northwestern University Chapter Records

 Collection
Identifier: 31/6/1
The records of the Northwestern University Chapter of Triangle Fraternity include six minute books contained in two boxes.

The minute books include roll calls for members present at meetings (except for Volume 6, 1961-1973), a record of motions presented and actions taken, and accounts of various special and other activities undertaken by the fraternity.

Unfortunately, the minutes do not reflect many substantive activities of the fraternity, including the purchase of new houses, nor do they shed much light on such major difficulties as the "Triangle Affair" which involved a dispute with Black students that occurred in 1969.

The minute books include roll calls for members present at meetings (except for Volume 6, 1961-1973), a record of motions presented and actions taken, and accounts of various special and other activities undertaken by the fraternity. Unfortunately, the minutes do not reflect many substantive activities of the fraternity, including the purchase of new houses, nor do they shed much light on such major difficulties as the "Triangle Affair" which involved a dispute with Black students that occurred in 1969.
