Nom du producteur


Histoire administrative

Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) is an all-male fraternity first established in 1899 in Illinois which quickly spread across the United States and Canada. It is currently one of the largest fraternities in North America. Although many fraternities developed bad reputations the “Tekes” were known for their non-discriminatory membership and solid personal qualities. The University of Manitoba chapter of the TKE was established in 1958. By the 1960s University of Manitoba "Tekes" had a fraternity house off campus on Balmoral Street in downtown Winnipeg. By the 1970s interest in fraternal organizations waned in Winnipeg and the chapter ceased functioning in 1979.

Notice biographique

Brian Macpherson graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree in 1960, and a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree in 1963. During his time as a student at the University of Manitoba in the late 1950s Macpherson joined the Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) fraternity.

Macpherson worked as a professor of statistics at the University of Manitoba, and was the Alumni Association president from 2004-2005. In 2008 Macpherson organized a 50th reunion for University of Manitoba TKE Chapter, which ceased functioning in 1979.

Historique de la conservation

The scrapbook was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in 2008 by Brian Macpherson, former TKE chapter member.

Portée et contenu

The fonds consists of one wood scrapbook started by Trev Percy when the University of Manitoba chapter of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity was founded in 1958 to chronicle fraternity events. The unique wooden design was created by a member who was good at woodworking and was intended to be both visually distinct and allow additional pages to be added easily. The use of the scrapbook to keep track of TKE events gradually diminished in the early 1960s.
