No correspondence with the national office is available for 1966 and 1967. From 1949 to 1967, the files include records of other chapter business, such as minutes, membership applications, by-laws, pledge manuals, intra-university memoranda, and committee assignments. Another file documents chapter membership from 1942 to 1948 on membership forms on individual members and arranged by date of initiation. The records include file scrapbooks, 1942-1983, of which one contains only caricatures of chapter members, ca. 1949, drawn by (S.E.) Holland. The collection also contains TEKE song books from dates between 1937 and 1966. One box contains a collection of composite photographs of Tau Kappa Epsilon from 1967-1987.
