Administrative history

The Alpha Omega Alpha Honorary Medical Fraternity was organized at the College of Medicine, University of Illinois, in 1902. In 1934 its name was changed to Alpha Omega Alpha Honorary Medical Society. The McGill Chapter (Alpha of Qu├ębec) was established in 1911. The Society is formed of undergraduate medical students of high scholastic achievement, alumni and faculty members, and honorary members, and its major activity on the local chapter level is attending lecture-discussions on topics of medical interest.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The major record of the McGill Chapter's early years is a register containing members' signatures, 1911-1969, and minutes from 1912 to 1932; a second minute book covers the period 1960-1969. Approximately two-thirds of the papers are secretary's files from 1961 to 1978 containing membership lists, correspondence concerning prospective members, circular letters announcing meetings, and correspondence with the headquarters of AOA. There are also receipts for initiation fees from 1954 to 1969.
