The Bulletin Celebrates 75 Years of Editorial Service

Article excerpt

From its beginnings as a newsletter through its evolution to a refereed journal, The Delta Kappa Gamma Bulletin has sought to celebrate the achievements of the Society and its members, and to promote scholarship in education. Whether highlighting Society activities, sharing member viewpoints or showcasing new research, editing has played a key role in the Bulletin 's success.

Following her tenure as International President, Dr. Annie Webb Blanton became Editor (1934-1945) and Manager of the Bulletin, publishing the first issue from her home at 1909 Cliff Street in Austin, Texas. Since those early years of the Bulletin, 10 women have served as Editor. The commitment of these women, combined with the dedication and support of administrative staff at the Society's Headquarters, has seen the Bulletin grow to a publication with a circulation of more than 100,000 and, as of 2009, one that is available electronically through the ProQuest Education Journals database.

The following testimonial of Mrs. Isabel C. Kerner, Editor from 1969-1975, speaks to the variety of tasks associated with the production of the Bulletin over the years:

While teas in the Blanton Room may no longer be part of the official duties of Bulletin Editor, one thing remains constant: The Delta Kappa Gamma Bulletin continues to celebrate the breadth and depth of members' experiences, abilities and professional dedication.
