Notes

From The History of Kappa Kappa Gamma, 1870-1930: "According to records which have been located in other of the older chapters, the name of the [Chi] Chapter was to have been Xi. This would have been consistent with the order of the Greek alphabet and doubtless was the plan. In the letter of instructions about the name, the letter of the Xi must have been very small or very light for it was not seen and X resulted. The charter did not arrive until after the first meeting so the difference was not noticed." Interestingly, however, this early issue of The Key does refer to the chapter as "Xi."
