: The Delphian Study Club Records (1931-2011) document the San Jose Delphian Club's history and activities. The Delphian Study Club originally formed as a chapter of the Delphian Society, which was founded in Chicago around 1910 to promote education of women in the arts, literature, and history. The San Jose Delphian Study Club was founded in 1931. The first name of this women's club was the Alpha Chi Chapter. The goal of the club was to promote education, personal improvement and social progress. In 1947, the Alpha Chi Chapter spilt from the National Organization to form a separate autonomous organization, which they renamed the Delphian Study Club. This collection is arranged into two series: Series I. Minutes Records and Meeting Reports, 1931-2010; Series II. Programs, 1957-2011.
