Transcribers Notes:
1. S.A.E. = Sigma Alpha Epsilon
2. The preface of the directory states that "hundreds" of members didn't return their questionaire, so don't appear in the 1912 directory.
3. Founded on March 9, 1856, Sigma Alpha Epsilon is the largest North American secret letter, social college fraternity. The researcher can read more about S.A.E. in Wikipedia
