Eta Sigma Phi is the national honorary
collegiate society for students of Latin and/or Greek. Members are elected
by local chapters which have been chartered by the society. The purposes
of the Society, in the words of the Constitution, are "to develop and
promote interest in classical study among the students of colleges and
universities; to promote closer fraternal relationship among students who
are interested in classical study, including inter-campus relationship; to
engage generally in an effort to stimulate interest in classical study,
and in the history, art, and literature of ancient Greece and Rome."
Archives of Eta Sigma Phi, the National Classics
Honorary Society, were established at the Hewes
Library of Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois, by vote of the
Eta Sigma Phi Board of Trustees in 2004. The
purpose of these archives is to serve as a permanent repository for back
issues of the
Nuntius (the newsletter of Eta
Sigma Phi) and other records
of the national society. Members are encouraged to donate memorabilia to the
collection, which is open to scholars and to the general public by
appointment. Copies of documents can be obtained by mail for a modest fee.
The archives are maintained by Dr.
Thomas J. Sienkewicz, Minnie Billings Capron Professor of Classics at
Monmouth College and former Executive Secretary of Eta
