History of Tufts College, 1854-1896

ALPHA KAPPA GAMMA. EVER since the admission of girls to the college the matter of secret societies has been discussed. Alpha Kappa Gamma can trace its beginning back to 1893, when it was first spoken of. Nothing definite was done, however, for some time, on account of the small number of girls in the college. In 1895 the number had so far increased as to make the idea practicable. Accordingly, in the Fall of the same year Alpha Kappa Gamma was established as a local society. The charter members were Mabel Prescott Bailey, Isabelle Gertrude Knight, Edith Louise Hodge, Harriette Alice Turner, Clara Ransom, Marion Lenore Flint, Harriette Johnson Merrill, and Ellen Eddy Shaw.
