HISTORICAL NOTE

The Alpha Epsilon Iota (a women’s medical fraternity) RHO chapter at UTMB was founded in part by Miss Nan L. Gilkerson in 1923 and continued until 1964.

SCOPE AND CONTENT

This collection consists of two clamshell boxes. The Blocker Collections holds information only to 1958 although the RHO chapter was featured in Syndrome until 1964. Most of the correspondence is to be found in the specific subject folder; however, there is one correspondence folder with some general correspondence. Due to the poor condition of papers, some items had to be copied in order to preserve them. The originals of these papers are kept in an unidentified folder in the back of Box 2.
