Brief History of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International
Annie Webb Blanton< Original Founder of DKG
Twelve women met in 1929 on the campus of the University of Texas in Austin with noble aspirations to build an organization to promote women in education and bring recognition and respect to their profession. The result of their planning was the founding of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International. These Founders created a list of five Purposes which were intended to guide the organization. This number later grew to seven. The Purposes of DKG are as relevant today as they were in 1929.
