Custodial History

Received by Criss Library prior to 2014. Accession details are incomplete or absent.

New material added 2017-05-08: Rita Henry, retired Assistant to the UNO Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, was a sponsor of the UNO Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, a student leadership honor society. Rita said that it appeared that the UNO ODK Circle was going to fold so she thought these materials should be added to University Archives.

New material added 2017-11-13: Rita Henry discovered this framed 1995 ODK Alumni Charter in storage at the UNO Alumni House. Since the original 1950 University of Omaha ODK Charter is stored in University Archives, Rita believed it was important to keep the two documents together.
