Alpha Omicron Pi Mothers Club Records
An Inventory of the Collection
The Alpha Omicron Pi Mothers Club was organized on April 25, 1944 at the chapter house, 304 West Nineteenth Street, Austin, Texas. The Mothers Club was a social organization and not affiliated with the sorority except through their daughters. The purpose of the club was to work in cooperation with the members and officers of the sorority and assist wherever possible. Activities included providing food during rush and finals; presenting gifts, such as the miniature loving cups as awards; entertaining with breakfast following the Christmas formal, and the spring open house. Active members were local Austin mothers and associate members were out-of-town mothers. The organization was active until the summer of 1973 when the University of Texas chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi became inactive.
The collection of the Alpha Omicron Pi Mothers Club consists mainly of documents related to the organization, including meeting minutes, constitution and bylaws, financial records, membership lists, and yearbooks. Items in the collection date from the group's creation in 1944 until the dissolution of the Pi Kappa Chapter of the Alpha Omicron Pi sorority at the University of Texas at Austin in 1973. The meeting minutes span this date range and provide the most consistent insight into the group's activities.
