The Western Province seeks to comprehensively document its history and that of its chapters, and to share those histories via publications and at its Founders Day events. To realize this goal, we have (1) set up target dates for chapters to research and compile their histories, and (2) established a repository and guidelines for chapters to make their submissions.

We ask that each chapter research, review, and update the content of their chapter archives; and consult with senior members of the chapter for historical information and items (for example, old photos, fliers, program books, etc.)

For additional information regarding the Chapter Histories Project, please refer to the instructions, form, and due dates below. For questions, contact me at Chapter History Project at reginaldjs@comcast.net or (510) 435-8614.

Yours in the Bond,
Reginald J. Simmons
Western Province Historian
