Administrative History

Sigma Pi Phi, Beta Psi Boulé is the Capital District’s chapter of the nation’s oldest Greek-letter organization comprised of college-educated and professional African American men. Founded in Philadelphia on May 15, 1904, the Sigma Pi Phi fraternity is referred to as the Boulé which is Greek for a council of noblemen. Its members are called Archons and their wives are Archousia. As of 2012, Sigma Pi Phi had over 5,000 members in 129 "chapters", known as member Boulés, throughout the United States, the United Kingdom and the Bahamas. A secret society, Sigma Pi Phi has begun to release information about itself to the public, however, it still holds to confidentiality within the organization.

The national office is the Grand Boulé with five regional Boulés to represent the Northeast, Southeast, Central, Western, and Pacific regions with individual Boulés within each. Sigma Pi Phi’s elected executive officers are referred to by Greek titles. The local Boulé head is the Sire Archon, and there is a Sire Archon-Elect, and an Immediate Past Sire Archon. The Grammateus is the executive secretary, the Thesauristes is the treasurer, the Rhetoricus arranges meetings and programs, the Agogos heads the constitution and by-laws committee and the Grapter is the official news reporter of the Boulé in charge of news and editorial duties. The Grand Boulé's elected executive officers are Grand Officers with the title Grand before their post and the regional Boulés' elected executive officers have the respective Region added before the position title. For example, Northeast Region Sire Archon would be the head of the Northeast Region.

The Beta Psi Boulé of the Capital Region was established on May 5, 1984. It has been active in and supportive of the Capital District community for more than a quarter century hosting annual community events, supporting charitable initiatives for various causes and sponsoring endowments directly from Beta Psi or from the Sigma Pi Phi Foundation. The University at Albany Spellman Achievement Award is a Beta Psi scholarship endowment created in honor of the late Seth Spellman Jr., one of the founders of the Beta Psi Boulé. The members of Beta Psi are high ranking officials in the Capital District community, including faculty and administrators in area Universities, business owners and other professionals with postgraduate educations and titles.

The current Sire Archon of Beta Psi Boulé is Dr. Levester Cannon. Former Sire Archons include:

1. Twitty Styles
2. Maurice Thornton
3. Joe Raggio
4. George Smith
5. Charles Rush
6. Bernard Ashe
7. Earl Eichelberger
8. Michael Hurt

nam_apap333-1 Series 1: Administration, 1984-2015 - 2.0  cubic ft.
Arranged chronologically.
This series contains the Beta Psi Boulé’s administrative records. The materials cover the beginning of the charter process for the Beta Psi Boulé to present day. The files consist of the Boulé’s day-to-day administrative records for 1984-2015 with the exception of the years 1991 and 2010. The series consists of charter plans, certificates and reports, administrative records, Beta Psi Executive Committee documents, financial reports, general meeting minutes, correspondences, memorandums, notices and agendas as well as documents from some of the Boulé’s committees. The bulk of the documents were created by the officers and members of Beta Psi Boulé and the officers of the Grand Boulé with the exception of some correspondence and event brochures of other Greek letter fraternities and sororities, Capital District businesses and charitable organizations.
As the majority of administrative records were created by the executive committee of the fraternity, please note that these officers are elected by the members of the Boulé every two years. This change in record creators and keepers is reflected in the way meeting packets are arranged year by year. Beta Psi had its fewest members immediately after it received its charter. Therefore the first few years of administrative records are filed into single folders by the creator. As the Boulé grew and officers changed, record keeping changed in the way the materials were created, distributed and retained. Some years' agendas were sent out with notices, financial reports were stored with meeting minutes, and executive and general meetings were kept together. In other years, the agendas and meeting minutes are together. Most recently, minutes, agendas, and financial reports all have their own folders. The archivist retained this original order for all years.
The transformation of the official Beta Psi header and the Sigma Pi Phi insignia can be mapped over the years by the documents in this series.
