This outline of the growth and achievements of Delta Delta 
Delta has been collected and compiled from the historical matter 
written and collected by the first Grand Historian of the frater- 
nity, Sara Ida Shaw Martin (1897-1900), the reports transmitted 
by Grand Historian, Lela M. Klampe (1900-1902), the fifteen 
volumes of the Trident, the various directories, chapter letters 
and Convention Reports issued, the Inter-Sorority Conference 
Reports and special chapter reports for 1903-4, 1904-5 and 
1905-6, received in answer to specific sets of questions issued by 
the present historian. Many personal interviews with the 
founders and early members of Alpha and the charter members 
of the various other chapters and with grand council members 
"have been helpful in information and suggestions. The author 
has not labored under the mpression that this is a contribution to 
literature. The intention has been to compile a record and a 
reference book. 

No space has been taken for words of self-praise or gratula- 
tion for it has been thought that the achievements of Tri Delta 
will speak for themselves to all who may care to read. 

While a task of many days, interrupted sometimes for 
months by family cares, yet the compilation of this history has 
nevertheless been a source of pleasure to one who has worked in 
the ranks of the fraternity since the third year of its history. 

All members and officers called upon for assistance have 
loyally responded and to each and all of them is extended most 
sincere gratitude. 

From the founders and earliest grand officers to the present 
council, there has not been one who has not responded cheerfully 
to frequent and troublesome questioning. 

To the Editing Committee, R. Louise Fitch, Editor of the 
Trident and Amy Olgen Parmelee, Grand President, the present 
Historian owes a double debt, first of all for constant inspiration 
and eager interest and second for entire readiness to render all 
manner of aid and services outside of the technical duties de- 




volving upon them. The interest and counsel of her husband, 
Frank E. Priddy, a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, have also 
been drawn upon freely and often. 

Kindly indulgence is asked for the multitude of errors that 
must be made by one who attempts to compile nearly twenty 
years of history from such scattered records as were to be com- 
manded. More time and more labor could have brought this to 
greater perfection but as time passes history is making and al- 
ready enough of labor upon it has been added to a busy life to 
equal the working hours of a year. 

May these humble efforts open the way for some future 
historian to perfect the task and also to inspire in all Tri Deltas 
who read an abiding resolution to make a history worthy of pres- 

In the bonds of Delta Delta Delta,

Vena Written by Sarah Ida Shaw, '89. and Publi*hed November, 1891, in 
The Trident, Volume I , Number I . 

There was tumult in the ocean 

On a time some years ago, 

As the sea-god's heralds hastened 

On their errands to and fro; 

For the mighty god Poseidon 

Had sent forth a stern decree 

That his council should be gathered 

In his palace 'neath the sea. 

For his messenger had brought him 

From the blooming lands above, 

On Thanksgiving Eve a letter 

Full of greetings and of love, 

Which read somewhat as here follows 

"Dear Poseidon : We have heard 

Of your wisdom, of your greatness, 

Of your kindness. In a word, 

We would fain become your children, 

We would fain your subjects be. 

If you only would instruct us 

In that old Greek mystery 

Which has come adown the ages, 

From a time when men were wise. 

When they knew the heart of nature, 

Held communion with skies, 

And divined the hidden meaning 

Of each star whose constant light 

Was a beacon to the sailor 

As he journeyed in the night. 

We are only college maidens 

But we all desire to know 

Of these wonders. So expect us 

In your palace there below. 

Nine o'clock's the time for calling 

In this nation of the free, 

So expect us at the bell stroke. 

Yours, most truly, Anne A. B." 

Well, there was a grand reception, 

And a baqnuet and a — well, 

You will never be the wiser, 

For we promised not to tell. 

Only this, perhaps I'll mention, 

That the conclave of the sage 

Then unanimously voted : 

"Since the maidens were of age, 



Knew exactly what they wanted, 
Spoke the Greek with fluent grace, 
It were better, then, to put them 
With the wonders face to face, 
Lest, amid the strides of progress, 
An electric shock might come 
And destroy the sacred record, 
Not slowly one by one, 
But without a note of warning, 
As had happened once before, 
When a cablegram sent eastward 
Threw them senseless on the floor." 
And the great sea-dog assented : 
By his hand he led them forth 
To his temple great, majestic, 
On an island toward the north ; 
Here he showed them in the heavens 
Stars— the Alpha, Theta, Phi, 
And he told them of their power 
Over human destiny. 
And he gave them to their keeping, 
"Be ye wise," he said, "and know 
With these helpers ye shall conquer 
In your struggles here below. 
Take this Crescent, it shall guide you, 
And this Trident, it has power, — 
It will call me to your succor 
When the stormy clouds do lower; 
It shall still the troubled waters, 
All the clouds shall pass away, 
While the Stars and Crescent ever 
Shall come forth to show the way." 
Then he ceased; for o'er the waters 
Came his Tritons, bold and free, 
Bearing in their midst a casket 
Fraught with wondrous mystery. 
This he ope'd, and on a sudden 
All the place was filled with light, 
And the great Tritonic chorus 
Raised their voices in the night, 
Till the waves of ocean thundered 
'Mid the wondrous melody. 
"Once again," they sang exultant, 
"Once again, ye Deltas three, 
Have you come to bless the nations, 
Will you brighten every heart, 
From the one who bears your symbol, 
Joy shall nevermore depart." 
Then the maidens thanked Poseidon 
For the wondrous mystery, 
He entrusted to their keeping, 
In his temple by the sea, 
And in token of his kindness 
They now wear the Deltas three, 
With the Crescent and the Trident, 
And the Alpha Theta Phi. 

Sarah Tda Shaw, '89, Alpha. 



You are not asked, gentle reader, with noiseless tread and 
averted gaze, to wend an enquiring journey back into the mys- 
tic shadows, where the receding views of a pre-historic night re- 
veal but the border lines of myths and legends. Neither a knowl- 
edge of the Dyonisian Fraternity, discovered by the Greek when he 
journeyed from Attica to Asia Minor, nor of the Masonic broth- 
erhood, either building from the rifted rock a Solomon's Temple 
or from this ancient story a powerful modern order, are neces- 
sary to an understanding of the rise of the American College fra- 
ternity system. 

Neither is it necessary to go to the College of William & 
Mary, in Independence year, with its Phi Beta Kappa (Dec. 5, 
1776), whose key is now but an honorary badge; nor again to 
those who fifty years later at old Union copied that society 
(Kappa Alpha, 1825— Sigmi Phi, 1827, Delta Phi, 1827) : nor 
on the other hand, must it be attempted as is customary, to seek 
out from the existing list of thirty odd more or less successful 
men's societies some particular one in order to explain the origin 
and existence of Greek letter societies among American college 

The inherent desire of the entire race for congenial society, 
the loyalty typical of woman, and the innate love of culture and 
refinement characteristic of the student mind, male or female, 
offer in themselves sufficient explanation of the fact that, almost 
co-eval with the presence of woman in the colleges and univer- 
sities, these societies began to exist. 

Neither Eleusinian Rites, nor Rosicrucian Mysteries, nor 
the legends of Greek, Latin, Celt or Teuton were necessary for 
their inspiration and propagation. Their causes, their aims, and 
their results are for progress in social, material, intellectual and 
spiritual ways. It has made little difference whether the Kite or 



the Key, the Arrow or the Anchor, or one of a half dozen or more 
other symbols have flashed a rival light to the brilliancy of the 
Stars and Crescent ; each band has met its failures and its suc- 
cesses as pilgrims to a common goal, a land of better conditions 
and better living for all. 


In the development of character, companions and environ 
ment are of prime importance and to well understand the origin 
and growth of Delta Delta Delta, the locating of her predecessors 
and rivals is not a superfluous task. Kappa Alpha Theta was 
founded at De Pauw University, Greencastle, Ind., Jan. 27, 1870 ; 
Kappa Kappa Gamma at Monmouth College, Monmouth, 111., 
Oct. 13, 1870 ; Alpha Phi, at Syracuse University, Syracuse, N. 
Y., Oct. 20, 1872 ; Delta Gamma at Louis School, Oxford, Miss., 
Jan. 2, 1874 ; Gamma Phi Beta at Syracuse University, Syracuse, 
N. Y., Nov. 11, 1874. All of these were preceded by the I. C. 
Sorosis founded April 28, 1867, at Monmouth College, Mon- 
mouth, 111., which added "Pi Beta Phi" to its name in 1883, 
and dropped "I. C." in 1888, and with that change remodeled its 
customs to conform with those of other Greek Letter societies. 
In the fall of 1888, the active chapter roll of these societies 
stood as follows: K A 15, K K r 21, A T 11, A $ 4,r $ B 
5 and I. C. Sorosis or n B <£ 13. 

Naturally as all of these societies had originated west of 
New England, some of them, as development came, began to 
turn covetous eyes toward those seats of learning located in that 
territory of acknowledged literary supremacy. Boston Univer- 
sity and Wellesley, the first, a champion of co-education, the sec- 
ond, a school for women alone, were classed by the general pub- 
lic as being as significant for women as Harvard for men. The 
co-educational school of first rank being the desirable field for 
the women's fraternities, the different societies had begun to 
here install their chapters. Kappa Kappa Gamma had entered 
Boston University in 1882, Alpha Phi in 1883 and Gamma Phi 
Beta in 1887. Although there was a good deal of anti-fraternity 
sentiment in college circles, even prominent people speaking 
against such organizations in chapel, these new chapters were 
soon prosperous and powerful and immediately took an import- 


ant position in the work of their own national organizations. The 
chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma, in particular, assumed and 
creditably filled a very authoritative position in the general soror- 
ity policy during the decade beginning with 1885. 

Thus, gradually, any spirit of opposition to the new order of 
affairs disappeared as the benefits of the system became obvious, 
and so in a field well prepared from without and within the seed 
was sown that blossomed ultimately into the suggestion for the 
founding of a new fraternity for women. 


Among the papers in the archives is a manuscript history of 
the organization of the first nineteen chapters of Delta Delta 
Delta, written by the first Grand Historian, one competent to tell 
of the origin of its Alpha Chapter. In this manuscript of Sarah 
Ida Shaw Martin, Alpha '89, are the following paragraphs : 

There were at Boston University in the fall of 1888, four Seniors, 
who for various reasons were not as yet allied with the three Greek Let- 
ter societies then at the college. These girls were among the best stu- 
dents, in the class of 1889. During the usual commotion attendant upon 
the rushing that fall, one of these four girls, disliking the general at- 
mosphere, said to her friend in deprecating the evident lack of good feel- 
ing, 'Let us found a society that shall be kind alike to all and think 
more of the girl's inner self and character than of her personal appear- 
ance.' The other acquiesced with much delight and so it came to pass 
that plans were laid that very day as the two friends sat in a quiet nook 
among the terra cotta cushions of the girls' study, known as "The Par- 

These two friends and seniors were Sarah Ida Shaw and 
Eleanor Dorcas Pond, originators of the idea of founding Delta 
Delta Delta. From them emanated the rituals, constitutions and 
emblems, as hereafter related and they were the moving spirits 
in the organization of Alpha Chapter. 


Later in the manuscript of the first historian, is found : 

"I am afraid those two young hearts would have been very much 
discouraged had they realized at that time what an herculean task it was 
to start a national fraternity, but fortunately for their peace of mind, and 
for the future happiness of the hundreds who have already learned to 
love the name of Delta Delta Delta, the two enthusiastic friends were 
unaware of the fact that there was something stupendous about the task 
they had set hands, heads and hearts to accomplish. Thev were working 
for a principle, and it never occurred to them that there could be such a 


thine as failure. Earnestness of purpose, energy and enthusiasm had 
brought them both success in college, and why should not these same 
qualities bring assurance of good fortune to the new venture ? At all 
events they had faith in the power of these forces, and with light hearts 
turned their thoughts to the founding of a new fraternity. 

The selection of a name was perhaps a joint matter, the sug- 
gestion of the triple letter coming from Miss Pond, while the 
selection of the letter itself can perhaps best be attributed to 
Miss Shaw, who was the hard worker on Greek mottoes, pass 
words and emblems. 

In regard to these things, Dr. Mann (Eleanor Dorcas Pond) 
said, at Syracuse, 1906 : 

"Mrs. Martin (Sarah Ida Shaw) had a genius for those 
things. She was a fine Greek scholar, loved to delve in Egyptian 
lore and Hindoo mysticism and had a more than ordinary liking for as- 
tronomy. Consequently when it came to ritual, badges, emblems and 
constitutions, she worked out many plans alone, then we met, went over 
her labors together and together decided what should be chosen for 
Tri Delta." 

Mrs. Martin (Sarah Ida Shaw) writes much the same thing, 
saying : 

"I worked out scores of plans and appropriate possibilities 
in regard to mottoes, rituals and emblems but in each instance 
Miss Pond cast a deciding vote, I relying on her good taste 
and practical ability. The pin, in particular, one of my several 
designs, was her prtefertence. My ritual services, constitutions, 

etc., first evolved were much more elaborate than those actually 
used, considerable cutting being done to suit the taste of both Miss Pond 
and others of the early members." 

Returning to the aforementioned manuscript in regard to 

organization : 

"At last, all was finished on Tuesday, the third day of the week. 
Nov. 28, 1888, but there was one more meeting of the two friends on the 
following afternoon before they separated for the Thanksgiving recess, at 
the top of the college building, in what was then the Philological Li- 
brary. It was there that the two girls embraced each other and said 
'Tri-Delta is founded.' Hence it became customary to speak of Thanks- 
giving eve as the fraternity's birthday, because it was on that day that 
these two young people realized that all was in readiness. It was par- 
ticularly appropriate also that this fraternity, the first born on New 
England soil to be recognized as a national, should be connected at its 
founding with a typically New England feast. It is not strange that the 
hearts of these sponsors were full of emotion as together they went out 
of the college building, for each felt there were added reasons why her 
Thanksgiving should be a very happy one. When they came to the part- 
ing of the ways at the historic Boston Common, Miss Pond said, 'We 
can make the girls we initiate promise secrecy, but what shall hold us 
two?' So there in the shadow of the old Park Street Church with a 
bright new moon overhead and three brilliant stars near by, while count- 
less fainter ones gave promise of the mighty hosts that would one day 
be enrolled upon the fraternity's firmament, the two faithful friends 
clasped hands and said 'In the presence of these myriads of witnesses, I 


swear eternal loyalty and fealty to Delta Delta Delta.' How well they have 
kept their vow there are many to testify, but how unstintingly they gave 
of their money, time and strength both before that night and since, will 
never be known. 

Still the work was not yet done, for after vacation came the task of 
gaining over other girls to the cause. Florence Stewart, of '89, soon 
consented, since her friendship for Miss Pond dated back to the time 
when both were classmates in the same high school. Isabelle Breed, how- 
ever, was not so easily secured, because from her observation up to this 
time she felt that fraternities were fundamentally wrong. It was only 
after the girls had told her enough to convince her of the lofty and noble 
Christian principles and aims of the society that she consented to join. 

Three girls were then secured from the junior class, one of them 
for so long the Trident editor, Emily F. Allen. Another was Mrs. Lotta 
A. W. Stevens, for years a teacher in the Coldwater (Mich.) High 
School, at that time doing special work at the University. The third 
junior pledge was Hattie Clinton MacNeil, who later became a President 
of Alpha Chapter ('89-'90). A sophomore, Marion Katherine Norris, 
grand-daughter of Mrs. Mary A. Livermore (a woman of national re- 
nown and an honorary member of Kappa Kappa Gamma), added some- 
thing of distinction. Four other sophomores were soon pledged, Mattie 
Ora Carter, Margaret Evelyn Emerson, Bertha Brackett and Alice 
Elizabeth Rich. Six others, Myrtle May Burdett, Hannah Jo- 
sephine Centre, Delia Alice Badger, Emily Stickney Clough, Grace Butler 
Gallison and Charlotte Elizabeth Joslin, followed, but since there was 
only a short time between the Thanksgiving recess and the Christmas 
holidays, the initiation was postponed until the new year. Soon after its 
advent came the longed-for pins. Isabelle Breed and Florence Stewart were 
hastily initiated in Prof. Bowne's lecture room, and the four seniors at- 
tended the next recitation with something shining on their breasts, with 
the result that there was much craning of necks and twisting of bodies 
to get a glimpse of the new society's pin. The next hour, the three 
juniors were hurried through in Prof. Buck's Greek room, and these 
seven withdrew to the home of Emily F. Allen, on Joy street, to make 
preparations for the more elaborate initiation of the other eleven. This 
was on Friday, January 15th, 1889, a memorable day in the annals of 
the fraternity, for on that day the first chapter was organized and the 
fraternity's life as an organization was begun. 

The following Monday, eighteen pins flashed light into the eyes of 
the other society people who were surprised at the size of the organiza- 
tion, for if they anticipated anything, they had expected only a weakling 
organization that would go under as soon as the seniors graduated. It 
was really a dangerous plan to try to assimilate so many individualities 
in so short a time, but for some inexplicable reason things ran very 
smoothly, and the meetings were a great success." 

Thus was the enterprise of a new fraternity for women to be 
known as Delta Delta Delta originated and formulated at Boston 
University, Thanksgiving Eve, 1888, by Sarah Ida Shaw and 
Eleanor Dorcas Pond, and with the assistance of their friends 
and classmates, Florence Stewart and Isabelle Breed, the com- 
plete Alpha Chapter of eighteen members was assembled, initiated 
and organized on January 15th, 1889. 


First Members of Alpha Chapter 

As the child inherits the characteristics and tendencies of the 
parents, so must the trend of a society be influenced by the traits 
of its founders. A long dissertation on the personal characteris- 
tics of the organizers of Delta Delta Delta is not within the scope 
of the present volume. It has been attempted under Biographical 
Notes to give in a condensed form the chief events of their lives 
and it is the desire here to bring out merely those significant 
points that are necessary for a correct interpretation of the his- 
tory and growth hereafter recorded and to emphasize enough of 
the self-sacrifice, the labor and the enthusiasm of those early 
days to ensure from a rapidly growing society, lasting apprecia- 
tion of and honor for the builders to whose creation many have 
fallen heir. 

As originators of the idea of founding a new fraternity for 
women, Delta Delta Delta, the names of those two seniors who 
consulted together in "The Parthenon" of Boston University must 
of course come first, Sarah Ida Shaw and Eleanor Dorcas Pond. 
These two girls had not formed their friendship early in their col- 
lege course. Miss Shaw was a resident of Roxbury, Mass., was 
a hard student and devoted her spare time to the home circle and 
home society until her junior y^ar.*.',Miss Mann boarded in Bos- 
ton in order to attend the University and both girls having more 
time under elective work toward the last of their course naturally 
sought congenial society. The tendency of Miss Shaw to work 
-out elaborate details and to study and investigate the unusual 
subjects found its complement in the practical, clear insight and 
cheery personality of her friend. Thus the two were well fitted 
to originate and develop the movement together. 

To Sarah Ida Shaw Martin must be given the credit of perse- 
vering and untiring labor for the good of the society through all 
the years which have succeeded. Her interest has been such that 
no labor has been deemed too great. The entire list of early 
-chapters find her hand writing throughout their correspondence 



files and as student, teacher or home maker her ever present in- 
terest has been Tri Delta. 

Dr. Mann (Miss Pond), while deprecating having to give 
the necessary data for the biographical notes, as sounding too 
much of the "ego," with her usual modesty, writes : 

"Mrs. Martin (Miss Shaw) has of course done much more for the 
fraternity since B. U. days than I, for I have been busy in another field, 
but I always have the Delta girls with me in heart, wherever I am." 

Notwithstanding her busy life, outlined elsewhere, Dr. 
Mann, after the college days of loyal endeavor were over, found 
time to organize the Chicago Alliance (1896), was watching the 
New York field while there for a propitious inauguration of an 
other and is and has always been ready with interest and love to 
labor whenever opportunity offered. 

Mrs. Martin (Miss Shaw), although for years a very suc- 
cessful teacher, found time to give strict attention to the develop- 
ment of Tri Delta in each slightest detail asked of her. The 
Gamma delegate to the Woman's Pan-Hellenic ('89) traveled to 
Meriden, Conn, (where Mrs. Martin was teaching), anxious, 
having attended the Alpha Chapter Conference on Trident and 
other matters, to talk over everything with her, as Grand Presi- 
dent. She found her a scholarly woman, bright, full-hearted, 
eager for work. Although denied the privilege of attending the 
first two conventions, Mrs. Martin was present in 1897 and 1900, 
holding grand offices at those times. To-day she is exceptionally 
interested in fraternity problems and in educational subjects in 
general. Almost her whole time for the last few years has been 
given to the compiling of "The Sorority Hand-Book," which has 
just been published. Perhaps the distinguishing mark of her 
mentality might be said to be an unusual talent for detail and an 
appreciation of symbolism, color and form. Her creed has been 
that Tri Delta should be one of the strongest, if not the strongest, 
influence for good in a college girl's life. 

Dr. Mann has led an active, busy life. Her profession and 
the profession of her husband have caused many changes of resi- 
dence, but these changes in themselves have been an education as 
their homes have been made in the larger cities and here her work 
has been found. Although a founder of Tri Delta, she attended 
her first convention at Syracuse, N. Y., the Seventh National, 
1906. There facing the encircling square of the banquet tables, 
she looked into one hundred and seventy-five faces, representa- 


tives of a society fifteen hundred strong, and upon request re- 
peated something of the story of the founding of Delta Delta 
Delta, and perhaps for the first time fully realized how great a 
momentum the movement had gained to which eighteen years be- 
fore, in her girlhood days at Boston University, she had been a 
partner in giving it first impetus. Bright, unaffected, capable, 
successful, she was a present witness to each delegate of how 
good a thing it has been for Delta Delta Delta that from the first 
to the last, from the women on whose golden locks the finger of 
time has begun its tracery of silver to the newest pledge, all 
have remaired to watch and to work. 

To the worth and loyalty of the two other senior girls, 
Florence Stuart and Isabelle Breed, first allies in organizing the 
new society, the success of the enterprise testified. 

Especially noteworthy was the work of Emily F. Allen, one 
of the junior trio next chosen. Her nine years of service as 
Editor-in-Chief of the Trident were productive of more than 
the successful establishment of the magazine. Among her early 
editorials is found ever that careful conservatism which is so val- 
uable when working hand in hand with progressive ideas. She 
strongly advocated always, sound intensive development, strong 
alumnae obligations and among her earliest editorials, she ad- 
vocated regular examinations, certificates of membership and uni- 
fied report systems, all of which have since been adopted. 

Associated with Miss Shaw in the active work of Chapter ex- 
tension was Charlotte E. Joslin, Alpha, A. B. '92, A. M. '96, a girl 
of energy, enthusiasm and intense loyalty. As one of the early 
Grand Secretaries, much of the important work of the formative 
period fell upon her and no task that she could find to do was 
left undone. Miss Joslin, recognizing the need of keeping in 
touch with the members who had left college, in 1894 compiled a 
complete list of members, with address of each. She also secured 
material for three later directories published in 1895, 1896, 1897. 

Until 1897 practically all the work of extension was done 
from Alpha Chapter through its founders, alumnae, and its 
chapter organization excepting as other chapters, alert and watch 
ful. passed on to them suggestions of opportunities which came 
to them. In the Trident Table of Contents, Business Manager 
lists, and in the Grand Council lists more explicit record of the 
routine work of these early members will be found. 

The first six charters were signed by Sarah Ida Shaw, as

Space forbids much of detail. The girls of Alpha have left a 
record that needs no words to interpret it. Most of them fine 
students, some of them exceptionally so, earnest in purpose, 
zealous in labor, and loyal, both then and now, the result of their 
endeavors is their highest and only necessary enconium. 

At various meetings during the year 1889, the following 
girls were initiated, Bertha Lee Gardner, Maud Eliza Muzzy, 
Blanche Ellen Seaver, Carrie Usher Tanner and Clara Grace 
Ayres, Sophomores ; Nettie Louisa Buckland, Mary Elizabeth 
Cochran, Etta lone Ferry, Christine Evelyn Jansson, Edith 
Knowles, Susie Ida Sayre, Flora Mandane Smith, thus raising the 
first year chapter (to Nov. 22, 1889) to thirty-one. 

The records of the early meetings show decisions on matters 
of symbolism and constitution which having been left open 
questions were discussed and voted upon by the chapter as a 
whole. The records reveal a quiet, level headed, steady progress, a 
simplicity that made no flaunting of the project under way and 
yet a breadth of insight and judgment that measured pretty ac- 
curately the task to which they had bent their energies. 

There is a quiet dignity about even their simplest reports, a 
quaint and perhaps only partial appreciation of what these rec- 
ords meant, that the motions and opinions therein recorded were 
in reality the completion of the task begun in the early fall of 
1888, the organizing of a new fraternity for women. 

In short, both the early members of Alpha and the charter 
members of the older chapters may all be looked upon as in a 
measure, founders of Tri Delta. By their labors and their suc- 
cesses the development of Delta Delta Delta was made possible. 

Trials of Alpha 

External rivalry and opposition to a new society were to be 
expected. The audacity of the attempt created astonishment and 
even their kindliest friends burdened them with well-meant advice 
to "give it up" and apply for a charter in some of the established 
sororities. They were well provided with the periodicals of such 
societies, their rivals even contributing a good supply. They 
quietly read all that was offered and as quietly continued to work 
out their own plans. But neither their newness nor their finan- 
cial burdens were their worst trial. A variety of opinions exist- 


ed (within the Chapter) as to what kind of a society they had 
really formed. Some wanted it "secret" like their rivals and a 
few "semi-secret", while others wanted it "open", either with a 
theory of better opposition to their rivals or as "a matter of con- 
science". Those who wanted it semi-secret favored secret rituals 
and open meetings but when their suggestion was adopted and 
two or three open meetings held, they soon concluded that they 
did not care to try to prepare accommodations for all who might 
come. Among those who desired an "open society" were many 
who favored the Delta Upsilon plan and desired to make Tri- 
Delta an example of that plan among the women's fraternities. 
"But soon invitations from other sororities began to come in, 
causing some resignations and a general feeling of uneasiness 
and all were speedily convinced that permanence could only be 
assured by being 'secret' like their rivals." A recent letter from 
Mrs. Martin, giving the outlines of this trying period, follows 
the sentence quoted above with one saying : "During all this try- 
ing season, Miss Pond worked loyally, hand in hand, with me 
and gradually the elements of uncertainty disappeared and suc- 
cess began to crown the efforts of the new chapter." 

Success of Alpha 

That a society of so few members should grant three other 
charters to far distant groups in its first year of existence was 
somewhat unusual. Fourteen girls returned to school in the fall 
of '89, but on initiation day nine others donned the Stars and 
Crescent and the continued existence of Alpha Chapter of Delta 
Delta Delta was insured. 

The Aim 

During the eighteen years which have followed, through 

five convention revisions of the Constitution, "The Aim" of the 

fraternity as written by its founders has remained unchanged. 

"The aim of this fraternity shall be to establish a perpetual bond of 
friendship among the members, to develop a stronger and more wom- 
anly character, to broaden the moral and intellectual life, and to ma- 
terially assist its members in every possible way." 

Not out of character to follow this are the words of the 

present Grand President, Amy Olgen Parmelee, who in closing 

a recent communication says: "Let the chapter life cultivate in 

each member accuracy, promptness, business ability, reliability 

and justice."

N. B. — This was the report of that meeting which was held immedi- 
ately after the Woman's Pan-Hellenic Convention which had been called 
to meet in Boston by Kappa Kappa Gamma. Three delegates being re- 
quired from each sorority. Alpha Chapter had assembled with one of 
its own number, one each from Gamma and Delta (Deuteron) Chapters 
as their representatives. Advantage was taken of this and the first Inter- 
Chapter Conference of Tri-Delta called, resulting as the minutes relate. 
This meeting was held in the parsonage of the People's Church, opposite 
the Youth's Companion Building (then under construction) corner of 
Columbus Ave. and Berkeley St. The majority of the out of town mem- 
bers of Delta Delta Delta then roomed in this building and were as 
closely associated as in a chapter house. B. L. P. 

In a later record is found: 

"On Wednesday, Nov. 25, '91, the first number of the Trident ap- 
peared in its dainty cover of gold, silver and blue. It contains 34 pages of 
interesting matter, including articles by members of various chapters, 
alumnae notes and letters from all the chapters. It certainly is a very 
creditable production, showing the careful and diligent work of the edi- 
tors and business managers and it fully merits our warm admiration and

First Chapter Admitted 

To develop and extend a new society along wise, successful 
and safe lines is indeed a greater task than to found one. The 
history of chapter extension in all the Greek letter societies 
passes through the various phases that may be termed aggres- 
sive, progressive, conservative and ultra-conservative, which last 
phase graduates, sometimes involuntarily, to complete stagna- 
tion. The order in which these phases are experienced in the 
different societies varies much and it is useless to try to judge 
under which any have labored or have yet to enter. To denom- 
inate the periods of extension in any way would run the danger 
of arousing the only differences of opinion that have ever pro- 
duced a suspicion of discordant feeling in Tri Delta history. But 
a brief outline of extension is attempted here as both the follow- 
ing chapters of the general history, the histories of the individ- 
ual chapters and alliances and parts of the statistical pages are all 
really contributions to this subject. 

For the earliest extensions the manuscript of the first his- 
torian is best authority. 

"It happened that one of the first set of freshmen initiates, 
Josephine Center, boarded at the Young Woman's Christian As- 
sociation, where her pin attracted the attention of Miss Etta May 
Budd, B. S., '82, Iowa State College, who was taking a course in 
painting at the Boston Art Museum. This young lady had 
founded a society, U. D. T., at her Alma Mater, and had inten- 
tions of spreading the same throughout the world. She had al- 
ready opened a correspondence with several colleges, among 
them Simpson, where a local L. F. V. by name, existed, which 
had pledged itself to join her society. Miss Budd requested an 
interview with the leading spirits in Tri Delta with a view to ne- 
gotiating about forming a chapter of her own society, but it did 
not seem wise to the Boston University girls to do this, since the 
Iowa College was not well known. After prolonged discussion, 
a coalition was formed and some things in the constitution of 



Dezjtj* ZmLra Uel-TB Fj*jitE¥W1ty 


Miss Budd's society were incorporated in that of Tri-Delta, not- 
ably those portions referring to the Commissioner of Education, 
the provinces and the arrangement for chapters in Canada and 
England. Miss Budd was accordingly initiated at the same 
time that the last quota of freshmen was added to the list (Mar. 
7, '89), but as she did not intend to return to the west until 
summer, it was decided to postpone the initiation of the two 
chapters in Iowa until that time. The L. F. V. society, how- 
ever, was unwilling to wait, for it was customary at Simpson 
College to pledge preparatory students in the spring term, and 
as they had three rivals, I. C (later Pi Beta Phi), Kappa Alpha 
Theta and Kappa Kappa Gamma, they felt their prospects would 
be better if they could be initiated immediately. Unfortunately 
none of the upper class girls at Boston University could go, so 
after much discussion, it was voted to grant the charter without 
delay, sending some of the documents through the mail and giv- 
ing others to Miss Budd to take later. 

Since the society was now in truth a fraternity, it became 
necessary to have a guard or chapter pin and the Trident was 
selected as the most satisfactory. Never since that time have 
such massive Tridents held sway over the hearts that beat be- 
neath them but they served their purpose well on that occasion 
for they excited unbounded curiosity and questions rained thick 
and fast until the answer came, 'We are a National Fraternity.' 

Naming of Chapters 

Miss Budd had asked for the letter Delta, and Delta Deut- 
eron was therefore given to the chapter at Simpson College, in 
accordance with a system of naming previously agreed upon. 
This arrangement gave one letter of the alphabet to each state, 
to be borne by the first chapter in the state, while the second was 
to be known as the Deuteron, and the third as the Triteron of 
this letter. Accordingly the charters were granted, Delta to 
Iowa State Agricultural College at Ames, Iowa, and Delta Deut- 
eron to Simpson College, at Indianola, Iowa. The chapter at 
Simpson, contrary to expectation, was initiated first, but the 
charters remained unchanged, for it was deemed best in defer- 
ence to Miss Budd to let her chapter have the honor of being first 
in the state, since its charter was granted before the one at 


N. B. — Later conventions simplified this naming system by adher- 
ing as closely as possible to an alphabetical order, and upon the exhaus- 
tion of the alphabet the plan of making a combination of the letter of the 
nearest chapter with some other letter has been adopted. — B. L. P. 

Chapter Extension 

By reference to chapter histories it will be seen that al- 
though the initiation of the Delta Chapter above mentioned oc- 
curred in June, 1890, some fifteen girls being initiated or 
pledged (among the pledged members was Flora Wilson, 
daughter of Secretary Wilson), this chapter never really organ 
ized as the faculty passed stringent anti-fraternity rules before 
college opened in the fall. Consequently the third chapter to be 
added to the roll was really Epsilon, (1889) of Knox College, 
Galesburg, 111., and the fourth, Gamma of Adrian College, Adrian, 
Mich. (1890). Beta, St. Lawrence University, Canton, N. Y., 
came into the fold Dec. 24, 1891 ; Zeta, University of Cincinnati, 
was added in 1892, and in 1893, Eta, University of Vermont, was 
added just prior to the calling of the first national convention, at 
Galesburg, 111. In this day of patronage of the greater univer- 
sities, it is something of a note-worthy fact that although Delta 
Delta Delta was founded in one of the larger schools, the Alpha 
Chapter had as its loyal supporters through a considerable por- 
tion of the formative years, its four oldest chapters in schools 
generally known as "the smaller colleges." These, however, were 
long established schools of good collegiate rank with other well 
established Greek letter societies, and the work that these 
chapters were able to do for their fraternity speaks louder than 
words for the quality and character of these student bodies. Used 
to long endeavor, patient of result and steadfast in purpose, 
they were perhaps peculiarly qualified to aid in a new enterprise. 
An article in the Reviezv of Reviews, Sept, 1892, says: "The 
principal task of our American Colleges is to make men" and it 
might be said in regard to the extension of Tri-Delta, that while 
since those early days it has not been the policy to enter the 
smaller colleges, nevertheless Tri Delta has recognized that its 
chief responsibility is to select noble women and where these are 
fostered Tri Delta is proud tc remain. 

In 1894 Theta was placed at the University of Minnesota, 
(Minneapolis), Kappa at the University of Nebraska (Lincoln), 
and Iota at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor). The 


latter was perhaps the one unfortunate experience in chapter ex- 
tension, the rank of the school blinding distant executives as to a 
necessity for very thorough local investigations. This charter 
was loyally surrendered (1900) by the chapter itself, devotion 
to the welfare of the general fraternity convincing them of the 
wisdom of such a course. In 1895, Lambda was chartered at 
Baker University, Baldwin, Kansas, Sigma at Wesleyan Univer- 
sity, Middletown, Conn., and Upsilon at Northwestern Univer- 
sity, Evanston, 111. The next year, 1896, gave two more, Nu, 
Ohio State University, Columbus, O., and Omicron, Syracuse 
University, Syracuse, N. Y. In 1898, Mu Chapter was installed 
in the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wis., and Xi at the 
Woman's College of Baltimore, Md. But one chapter was ad- 
mitted in 1900, Pi in the University of California, Berkley, Cal. 
Three years later, 1903, Rho was installed in Barnard College, 
Columbia University, New York City, and in 1904 four chapters 
were admitted, some of which had had petitions pending for 
more than two years. These chapters were Tau at Bucknell 
University, Lewisburg, Pa. ; Phi, University of Iowa, Iowa City : 
Chi, University of Mississippi, Oxford, Miss., and Psi, Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pa. In 1905 there was a 
return to the first letter of the alphabet, for the youngest chap- 
ter, situated at Randolph-Macon Woman's College, Lynchburg, 
Va., Alpha Xi. 

Alumnae Alliances 

The Alumnae Association movement has met with the great- 
est success and swiftest progress among the women's fraterni- 
ties. Pi Beta Phi was the first to start such an idea when in 
1881, as the I. C. Sorosis, thirteen years after founding, 
she began the establishment of Alumnae Chapters. Several 
changes in her plans of alumnae organizations have been made. In 
1889, seventeen years after founding, Alpha Phi organized its 
first two Alumnae Chapters. Delta Gamma took up the idea at 
about the same time. Kappa Kappa Gamma opened one on a some- 
what indefinite plan in 1892, twenty-two years after founding, 
which existed until 1896. After this their present plan was taken up 
and officially recognized in 1901-1902. Eighteen years after 
founding, that is in 1892, Gamma Phi Beta began this work. In 
1893, Kappa Alpha Theta organized its first Alumnae Chapter 
and Chi Omega organized its first one in 1900. 


Delta Delta Delta, founded 1888, made provision from the 
first for the founding of Alumnae Chapters or Alliances as they 
are called. But four classes had graduated from Alpha Chap- 
ter, when its Alliance was formed, August 29, 1892. The first 
election of officers is reported in the Trident (Vol. II, No. 1) as 
follows: Pres. — Clara Grace Ayres, of Baltimore; V. Pres. — 
Bertha Lee Gardner, of Washington, D. C. ; Sec. and Treas. — 
Emily Frances Allen, of Boston, Mass. 

They were all busy women but found time to strengthen and 
broaden the alliance movement. Miss Gardner was the first 
Alumnae Department Editor of the Trident. The Third Degree 
ritual although previously prepared was not used until 1895, 
when a class of eight Alpha seniors was initiated. The number 
of alumnae being small and scattered, after the second meeting 
of Alpha Alliance, June 8, 1893, it was decided to reserve all 
important business for an annual meeting following Com- 
mencement each year, but by 1897, the present system of regular 
monthly meetings was in full operation. The first two alumnae 
to receive the third degree, outside of Alpha Chapter, were two 
Lambda girls who were visiting in Boston, Anna M. Hair and 
Mrs. Mary Murray Hair. They were made Circle Degree mem- 
bers, July 19, 1895. Mary Chadbourne Smith, Theta, also re- 
ceived the third degree at this time. 

Epsilon was the next chapter to follow in alliance organiza- 
tion, then the Chicago Alliance was organized by one of Tri 
Delta's founders, Dr. Eleanor Pond Mann, in 1898. The others 
to the number of sixteen have followed in rapid succession, as 
appears hereinafter in detail. 

Although the youngest of the seven stronger national soror- 
ities, Delta Delta Delta was of the first, perhaps the first, to work 
out and perfect the Alumnae Association system. 

Delta Delta Delta was the first sorority to make an allied and 
influential place for Alumnae and the third degree, known as the 
Circle or Alliance Degree, is a distinctive feature. One of the 
impressive features of a Tri Delta Convention is the combin- 
ation of graduate and under-graduate work. 

Alumnae alliances were planned by the founders in 1888 and 
were sanctioned and further provided for by the First National 
Convention (1893). 


At the second (1894) and third (1897) National Conven- 
tions of Delta Delta Delta, the Alumnae Alliance Delegates 
worked not only with the main body but were given equal powers 
with the official delegates of the active chapters. It was felt 
better work could b? done by tha alliances if a firmer organi- 
zation could be accomplished and National Sessions of Delta 
Delta Delta Alumnae Alliances were undertaken in 1898. 

In Other Lines 

As late as 1880 but six men's fraternity magazines were in 
operation. But one sorority exceeds Delta Delta Delta in the 
number of volumes of magazines published, by anything more 
than a very few numbers, although four of the other sororities 
preceded Delta Delta Delta by from sixteen to twenty-one years 
in organization. Delta Delta Delta took up the publication of 
the Trident when there were but four active Chapters, issued the 
first number on her third birthday and has not only continued it 
without interruption but has placed it on a paying basis. The 
convention of 1906 authorized the publication of a private bulle- 
tin "The Triton," which has just completed No. 1 of Vol II. Sig- 
ma Chi brought out something of the kind for awhile but the first 
regularly issued private bulletin among men's fraternities was 
"The Hustler" of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, 1892. As far as known but 
one other sorority, Chi Omega, publishes a secret magazine, three 
numbers of which have been issued. It is called "The Mysta- 

The following chapters trace the history out in its respec- 
tive sections under the heads of Government, Finances, Visiting 
Delegate, Publications, Conventions, Intec-Sorority Events, 
Chapter Histories and Alliance Histories. In statistical pages 
will be found a chronological outline and various charts and 
tables indicative of the progress of Delta Delta Delta and useful 
for reference on general sorority subjects. 

Explanatory Note. — In the foregoing pages, besides the verbatim 
quotations, many facts have been taken from the manuscript of the first 
Grand Historian and also much of her data has been made use of in the 
paragraphs on the organization of the different chapters. Baird's Manual 
of American College Fraternities, (1905), Walter B. Palmer's History of 
Phi Delta Theta (1905), The History of Sigma Alpha Epsilon (1893) and 
Kanna's Record (1903) have been freely used as reference books through- 
out the work. If in citing data of other fraternities or sororities any 
mistakes have been made, they are errors of information rather than 
those of intention. — B. L. P. 



Delta Delta Delta is distinguished by being a fraternity 
with three distinct degrees. 

I. The Trident Degree is a formal degree administered at 
the time of pledging and is perhaps as dignified and binding as 
anything in Pan-Hellenism. 

II. The Stars and Crescent Degree is the regular collegiate 
chapter degree with its A A A, A A A and A © $ mot- 

III. The Circle or Alumnae Alliance Degree is also a part 
of formal ritual work and is known as the Graduate Degree. It 
can only be administered to those having taken the Trident and 
Stars and Crescent Degree. 



The official badge of the First or Trident Degree has been 
authorized as a Trident of silver and is known as the pledge pin. 
It bears the chapter letter and may be worn as a guard with the 
second degree badge. 

The badge of the Second Degree is described as consisting 
of three stars within a Crescent of three hundred degrees, bearing 
three Deltas. This is the college emblem and is recognized as the 
pre-eminent symbol. 

The badge of the Third Degree is a Delta in white enamel 
supported by three Deltas of gold and inscribed in a golden circle, 
surrounded by six spherical triangles in blue enamel. This is to 
be worn beneath the badge of the Second or Stars and Crescent 


Besides the secret mottoes of the second and third degrees, 
there is the Tri Alpha motto of the Trident or first degree, which 



is also known as the open motto of the fraternity and is 'A(j<£aAw« 
'AyawwcT 'AAA^Xas. (Asphalos' Agapomen Alle'las). 
"Let us steadfastly love one another." 


The call of Delta Delta Delta is sung to the 1, 3, 5, and 8 
of a scale ascending and descending. It is 

AAaAa AAaAa AAaAa 

. (Alala Alala Alala') 
Ta lepa IIoTeiSama 
(Ta Hiera Poseidonia.) 


The colors of Delta Delta Delta are silver, gold and blue, 

tree. . 
The tree is the Pine. 


The flower is the pansy. 


The jewel is the pearl. 


The patron Greek divinity of the fraternity is Poseidon. 


The Seventh National Convention (1906) adopted a Coat 
of Arms as designed by Richard B. Lockwood of New York. 
It is in Heraldic Terminology as follows : A Shield Quartered 
— the first and fourth azure, a Trident or. The second and third 
or — a Pine tree ppr. Crest — A pansy ppr. Mottd — 'Aor<£aAak 

AyanweT AAA^Aas. 

N. B. — Meaning the 1st and 4th are blue fields on each of which is 
a silver Trident; the 2nd and 3rd are gold fields on each of which is a 
pine tree, natural color. 

Elizabeth A. S. Tredwell, Rho, was chairman of Committee 
securing design. 


A selection made by the Grand Council was sanctioned by 
the convention of 1906. The design is described as a rectangular 


flag of three vertical bars, the first and third sea green, (green 
being the union of Tri Delta's colors), one bearing three Deltas 
(superimposed) in white and the other, three stars in white; the 
middle bar, white with the green pine tree upon it. The design 
was drawn by Eleanor McClure, of Epsilon, daughter of S. S. Mc- 
Clure, Publisher, New York City (he, himself, an alumnus of 
Knox College.) 


Stationery headings for formal correspondence have been 
in vogue since the first year. They are too numerous to describe, 
excepting by illustration. Business stationery was varied ac- 
cording to fancy of officer or chapter until in 1905 a uniform 
style was adopted, the size being the square commercial note for 
both chapters and Grand Council. 

A uniform style of embossed lettering is used by the Grand 
Council and each individual chapter has freedom of choice in 
lettering, color, and design.

The government of the fraternity was vested in the found- 
ers of Alpha Chapter and Alpha Chapter from 1888 to 1893. 
The archives are still with Alpha. The Grand Council System 
inaugurated by the first convention has been systematized and 
strengthened by each succeeding one. The Grand Council at 
present contains ten members. 

Provisions were made for five provinces — Alpha, the At- 
lantic State — Beta, between the Atlantic States and the Mis- 
sissippi — Gamma, the remainder of the United States — Canada, 
Alpha — and England, Alpha. Each Province is directly under 
the supervision of a Grand Vice President and her Deputy. 

The Alumnae Alliance System is advisory to and subject to 
regulations by the National Conventions and Grand Councils of 
the general fraternity. Its organization and government follow 
the same rules. 

Each petition for a charter is first sent to the Grand Vice- 
President of the province wherein the petitioning body is situ- 
ated. It is then submitted to the Executive Committee, and with 
their approval to the Grand Council. It must then be sub- 
mitted to the chapters of all the provinces and can only be 
granted by the two-thirds vote of each chapter of all three 
provinces. No petition is submitted to vote until the peti- 
tioning body is visited by the Grand Vice President of 
the province or her Deputy. The petition must receive the 
unanimous favor of the Grand Council before it can be submitted 
to the chapters. 

No charter can be withdrawn excepting by act of a National 

Vacancies in office between conventions are filled by vote of 
the Grand Council. 

Grand Council 

The First National Convention (1893) worked according to 
the existing original constitution and elected but five Grand 



Officers — President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and 
^Tommissioner of Education. The editor of the Trident was not 
at that time considered a member of the Grand Council. 

The Second National Convention (1894) added that office 
to the Grand Council list, making it have six members. 

The burdens of administration having materially increased 
with the rapid growth of the fraternity, the Third National Con- 
vention (1897) made the number of Vice Presidents three, one 
for each province, added a Grand Marshal and a Grand Histor- 
ian and dropped the office of Commissioner of Education. The 
duties of this officer had been to maintain a high standard of 
scholarship among the undergraduates and to render assistance 
to alumnae in all educational enterprises, and these duties were 
in a measure distributed among the various officials provided. 

The office of Commissioner of Education was one of the 
things adopted from the plans of Etta May Budd for her nat- 
ional sorority which she had given up, joining Alpha Chapter of 
Delta Delta Delta and allying with the fraternity her two partially 
formed chapters at Ames and Indianola, Iowa. 

An Executive Committee was created in 1904, consisting of 
the Grand President, the three Grand Vice Presidents and the 
^Grand Secretary. 

Nine members constituted the number of the Grand Council 
until the Seventh National Convention, when a tenth member, 
known as a Supervisor of Alliances, was added to the number. 
A larger use of the privilege of appointing deputies is being made 
each year, as the work falling upon each grand officer, as the or- 
ganization grows and perfects its system, is becoming too heavy 
to be carried by one person. 

In intensive development, in government, in finances, every- 
thing points to more thoroughly perfected business methods. 


The Provinces of the fraternity are directly under the super- 
vision of the Province Vice Presidents. But one change has ever 
been made in province distribution and that affected but one 
-chapter, Xi, changing it from Beta to Alpha province. 

A portion of the idea of province arrangement came from 
.the plans of Miss Etta May Budd. The idea of holding province 


conventions was originated at the First National Convention 
(1893) and so far as the delegates there knew was an original 
idea, they working out this plan in order to overcome the diffi- 
culties apprehended from a system of Tri-ennial National Con- 
ventions, then planned for. These province conventions held in 
1895, 1898 and 1899 were greatly enjoyed and the plan was onlv 
abandoned because of the necessity of bi-ennial nationals and the 
feeling that too great a strain must not be put either upon the 
finances or the energies of the chapters. Besides the regular 
official duties that come to the province officer, the Grand Vice 
President, it is the custom for her to keep up constant communica- 
tion between her chapters by means of Province Round Robin 

The province distribution of chapters is as follows: 

Delta Delta Delta 

Alpha Province. 
Active Chapters — 
Alpha — Boston University. Omicron — Syracuse University. 

Beta — St. Lawrence University. Rho — Barnard College. 

Eta — University of "Vermont. Sigma — Wesleyan University.

Chi — University of Mississippi. 

Gamma Province. 
Active Chapters — 

Delta — Simpson College. Lambda — Baker University. 

Theta — University of Minnesota. Pi — University of California. 

Kappa — University of Nebraska. Phi — University of Iowa. 

Charter Grants 

The granting of charters was one of the prerogatives of the 
founders of the fraternity and Alpha Chapter until the first con- 
vention. The first two conventions did not do much to make 
any general rulings to limit this power, feeling perhaps 
that it was for the best interest of so young a so- 
ciety to leave it in their hands. The Third National 
Convention originated a plan whereby all had a voice 


in the matter. Conventions had the right to grant charters 
until the Seventh, 1906, revoked this ruling. But one conven- 
tion, the Sixth, 1906, ever granted any charters. 

Twenty-five charters have been granted, one of which was 
never operated under. One charter was surrendered to the 
Fourth National Convention, twenty-three are at present in 

Charter fees have been thrice raised. Petitioning bodies 
must bear all the incurred expenses, including a special personal 

While there have been twenty-five charters granted, more 
than double that number have been rejected. Nine were await- 
ing decision at the time of the Seventh National Convention, 
none of which has as yet received a final vote. Many of the pe- 
titioning bodies not granted charters from Delta Delta Delta 
have since received charters from well known sororities. 

It may be said that the history of charter grants could 
be divided into three sections, but of course these sections so 
overlap that no dividing line is absolute. As is the case with 
every progressive new society, the first officers and early chapters 
watched for desirable fields and generally followed the policy of 
choosing those petitioning bodies who were already organized 
into a local of recognized strength. Personal friends, usually 
Greeks themselves, were very active in locating such fields and 
the records, which are perhaps better unpublished, show many a 
curious and interesting relation of such aid. 

In the next stage of progress, while no effort was made to 
search for opportunities, yet the high grade school and a well 
recommended group were pretty sure of favorable consideration. 
In the last period, however, petitions for charters have sometimes 
been pending several years and in a few cases only have been 
granted when received a second and a third time. Not only has 
it been imperative to have a school of highest standing, with the 
most desirable students as petitioners, but questions of policy and 
location have made it possible to select but few of these. 

Alumnae Alliances 

"The Alliance as an organization has its own constitution, 
by-laws and ritual and holds special sessions at each national 
convention to discuss and legislate upon all subjects relating to 


alliances only which are not provided for in the constitution. 
Each Alliance is allowed a delegate to the national convention 
and there is allowed equal voting powers with the active dele- 
gates. No Alliance can be formed with fewer than six members. 
The object of the Alliances is to keep in touch with the active 
chapters and the sisters of college days by personal contact where 
possible, by a series of letters or bulletins where this can not be 
done. Literary programs, musicales, contributions to house 
funds, fraternity study, an occasional lecture, a little philanthrop- 
ic work are special objects. Recently an Alliance officer has been 
appointed whose especial duty is the study of the needs of the 
Alliance Chapters and the advisability of establishing i.ew ones. ' 
—The Trident (Ed.), Vol. XV, No. 3. 


Official examination on fraternity history and management 
is held in each chapter on the second Saturday in March. The 
question list and grading are in the hands of a Board of Super- 
visors appointed by the Grand President. The Grand Marshal 
publishes the record of the examinations in the Trident. 

These examinations have been conducted annually since 
1898, and it was the custom to require each member to take them 
but once, provided each first year initiate secured a satisfactory 
grade. The Seventh National Convention provided for an exam- 
ination to be given each member twice during the college course. 
The freshmen are examined upon ritual, chapter roll and consti- 
tution, the juniors upon policy, methods, Pan-Hellenics, Inter- 
Sorority Conferences and questions on other fraternities. All 
grades of members taking examinations are published in the 
Triton. I 


An outline of the evolution of the financial system of Delta 
Delta Delta could be no better begun than by quoting again the 
words of one of the founders and making them apply not only to 
the organizers and early members of Alpha but to the Grand 
Officers of the earlier Councils and to the charter member groups , 
of all the earlier chapters. "How well they have kept their vows, 
there are many to testify, but how unstintingly they gave of .their 
money, time and strength will never be known." 

In the earliest days of chapter extension, all central expen- 
ses were borne by the founders and members of Alpha Chapter, 
some matters being paid by direct tax, the others silently liqui- 
dated from private purses. The charges for charter, pin, station- 
ery and installation officers' expenses were the only amounts 
charged up to the respective chapters. The first regular levy 
made upon the chapters was the demand for subscriptions to 
The Trident, which appeared November, 1891. The first con- 
vention endeavored to ensure the Trident income, the second fol- 
lowed suit, but it was not until the third convention, 1897, that 
any effective steps were taken to formulate a plan for collecting 
enough subscription money to run the magazine and thus some- 
what relieve Miss Allen (Editor in Chief), her business manag- 
ers and Alpha Chapter. This convention levied a per capita as- 
sessment on each chapter for the support of the Trident and 
placed its collection in the hands of the Grand Marshal. Up to 
this time (1897), all Grand Officers' expenses had been borne by 
themselves and all the official delegates for the fraternity at large 
had been obliged to pay their own bills in addition to giving 
their time and labor. The Chapters either paid or assisted in 
paying their delegate's convention traveling expenses and this 
it was thought accounted for many irregularities in represent- 
ation. Therefore, this third convention also levied a general an- 
nual per capita tax known as Grand Dues and provided that the 
traveling expenses of the active chapter delegates and of the 
Grand President, Grand Secretary and Editor of the Trident be 



thereafter paid out of the general fund. It also awarded $100.00 
to the entertaining chapter of each convention. The grand dues 
were raised by the fourth convention to make provision for a 
wider range of representation, as more widely separated chapters 
were admitted and the name of the Grand Treasurer was added 
to the list whose traveling expenses came out of the general fund. 

The Fifth Convention facing the one small deficit in the 
history of Delta Delta Delta again made a slight increase in the 
dues. The Sixth Convention raised the dues of both active and 
Alliance members and also levied a per capita tax for visiting 
delegate's fund which was held separate and does not appear in 
balances. During most of this time, it is well to state that the 
Trident was paying its own way and that these increases were 
occasioned both by the growth of the organization and the more 
accurate methods employed in transacting its affairs. 

The Seventh Convention, finding a good surplus in the treas- 
ury, left the dues as they were with the exception of placing the 
special visiting delegate assessment and fund with the regular 
dues and funds*. Provision was made whereby a portion of the 
Alliance' delegate's traveling expenses will come out of the gen- 
eral fund. 

A motion was passed to increase the amount of the conven- 
tion fund for each entertaining chapter and provision was made 
for proportionate increases in this amount concurrent with chap- 
ter extension. This convention also very materially raised the 
charter fees. This was the fourth change in these. 

As it was reported that the Trident had passed from a mere- 
ly self supporting to a reasonably paying enterprise, provisions 
were made for the payment of a salary to the Editor-in-Chief. 
This salary is variable, being a percentage of the profits. The 
Editor pays for her own business management out of this salary. 

Thus has begun a transition from that condition so prevalent 
in women's societies where not only the burden of the labor and 
responsibility is borne, as it always must be, by a very few but 
the expense as well is allowed to drain heavily a few private 
purses, when it would be but a light tax if assumed by all those 
benefited. Each one of the seventeen hundred initiates will be 
proud to know that each step has steadily advanced the fraternity 
toward a goal of fair and equal representation and taxation, accu- 
rate and perfected business methods and eventually it is hoped as 


far as actual outlay is concerned, to realize an absolutely self 
supporting system. 

The magnitude of the labors of love already accomplished 
for Tri Delta is indeed beyond computation and all of the future 
of couise depends on an equal devotion of its members, a devo- 
tion which must of necessity be its own reward. 

Finances of the Individual Chapters 

Beyond the apportioning of the Grand Dues and Trident 
assessments, the individual chapters are left to conduct their busi- 
ness affairs for themselves, simply being required to submit an an- 
nual report. It is gratifying to be able to state that in June, 
1906, not a single chapter had a deficit to report and that sev- 
eral chapters either reported balances or the establishment of en- 
dowment funds. The financial reports of but nineteen chapters 
are at hand and give an aggregate sum of $10,086.00 as the year's 
income. But three of these report as small an income as $100.00 
per year, thirteen of these vary from $125.00 to $500.00 per 
year, two report in excess of $1000.00, while one chapter, run- 
ning a chapter House, shows total book accounts of $3400.25. 


Probably two things impressed the Grand Council of 1900- 
1902 with the advisability of making provision for a visiting dele- 
gate in the government system of Delta Delta Delta. 

In the first place for several years it was required that all 
petitioning bodies be personally investigated by some officially 
appointed and experienced member, if possible one on the Grand 
Council at that time — preferably the Grand Vice President of 
that province in which the petitioners were located. The bene- 
rits of such visits had thus been manifested in this work. 

In the second place the plan of having an official visiting 
member was being tried with success in other fraternities. 

After the subject had been properly presented and fully dis- 
cussed, the Boston Convention, (Fifth National, 1903), tabled a 
motion to institute such an office and appointed a committee to 
estimate the expenses that such an officer would incur. More 
special inspection work came up to be done between 1902 and 
1904 than ever before. 

At the Galesburg Convention, (Sixth National, 1904), it was 
moved and carried "that Tri Delta have a visiting delegate who 
shall visit each chapter once in two years and that the Grand 
President be this visiting delegate and if she finds herself un- 
able to act, she shall appoint such delegate." To meet the ex- 
penses of such office, a per capita tax of fifty cents on both active 
and Alliance members was levied. For a few months after con- 
vention, the work of inspecting petitioning bodies and chapters 
first on the list was undertaken by the Grand President or by 
special deputies appointed by her but it was soon realized that 
the work would be of greater value if all inspections were made 
by the same person, and the Grand President, Mrs. Leutscher, 
being unable to undertake a task of such magnitude, appointed to 
the office, R. Louise Fitch, of Epsilon, but recently elected Editor- 
in-Chief of The Trident. 

It is interesting here to note the peculiar coincidence that 
nearly three years before, as the delegate of Epsilon to the Fifth 



National Convention, Boston, Miss Fitch had made the original 
motion that Delta Delta Delta institute the custom of having a 
visiting delegate. Now it fell to her lot to make the first com- 
plete round of personal inspections in the history of the Society. 
The cost of the inspecting tour was considerably less than esti- 
mated. She inspected twenty-two active chapters, Chi being 
omitted as it had so recently been inspected and installed and 
she had been present at the initiation installation. She visited 
ten Alliances and three Alumnae groups which have become 
Alliances and investigated three petitioning bodies. Great 
interest was manifested in her report at the Syracuse Conven- 
tion, and on every side one heard intense enthusiasm over and 
appreciation of her work expressed by the delegates. The con- 
vention, recognizing the full value of such a unifying and system- 
atizing method, continued the office under an improved financial 

Report of First Chapter Inspector. 

It is quite impossible to give a detailed account of the results 
of the visits of the first Chapter Inspector, for all the information 
relative to conditions at the time of each visit has been reported 
simply to the Council and it is thought advisable to keep it in the 
Council. However, a brief account of the trip and the methods 
employed to obtain desired information may be of interest. 

The first Chapter visited was Upsilon, at Northwestern Uni- 
versity, Evanston, 111. This was in May, 1905. From there I 
went to Columbus, Ohio, to visit Nu Chapter ; then to Cincinnati, 
Ohio, where Zeta is. At the request of two locals in that vicinity 
I visited each of them for several days. In October, Mu, at 
Madison, Wisconsin, was visited, and a petitioning group in that 
vicinity. In November, I spent several days with Phi, at Iowa 
City; in December, with Theta, at University of Minnesota, 
Minneapolis. January 8th, 1906, I started west, visiting in or- 
der, Delta, at Simpson College, Indianola, Iowa; Kappa at Uni- 
versity of Nebraska, Lincoln, Neb ; Lambda, at Baker University, 
Baldwin, Kansas; the Denver Alliance, at Denver, Colo., and 
then took a couple of days' rest or at least of change, at the Grand 
Canyon, in Arizona. Then on to Pi, at University of California, 
at Berkeley, Calif., and down to Los Angeles to see the Alliance 


there. At Pasadena, cares were forgotten for a week in enjoy- 
ing the mountains and the side trips to the ocean. I reached 
Galva, 111., again on March 1st, and visited Epsilon, Knox Col- 
lege, Galesburg, 111., the second week in March. I started east 
March 23rd and visited in order, Gamma, at Adrian, Mich., Omi- 
cron, at Syracuse, N. Y. ; Beta at Canton, N. Y. ; Eta at Burling- 
ton, Vt. ; Alpha, at Boston. After a four days' rest, I visited Sigma, 
at Wesleyan University, at Middletown, Conn. ; Rho at Barnard 
College, New York City; Tau at Bucknell University, Lewis- 
burg, Penn. ; Psi, at University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia ; 
Xi, at Woman's College, Baltimore, Md. ; and last the youngest 
chapter, Alpha Xi at Randolph Macon Woman's College, Lynch- 
burg, Va. Left for Galva, 111., May 25th. 

As far as possible, four days were spent with each chapter. 
In that time, at each school, some social affair, tea, reception, 
card party or something of the kind was given at which I was 
enabled to meet the members of all rival Sororities in the insti- 
tution. Dinners, drives, theatres, dances, receptions, chafing 
dish spreads, luncheons, some or all were given at each chapter, 
to enable me to meet all active members and Alumnae, and in 
some cases gentlemen friends of each chapter, socially. During 
each visit a regular chapter meeting and also a regular Alliance 
meeting (where an Alliance existed) were held and regular busi- 
ness conducted in the ordinary way. Every chapter book was 
examined, plans and policy of chapter, characteristics and 
strength of rivals, house finances and methods of meeting bills 
for house or room, for Grand and Chapter dues were discussed. 

At every school, I was privileged to meet the President or 
Dean and talk over fraternity affairs. At every institution ex- 
cept one I was allowed to obtain the grades for the previous or 
present year, as I chose, in some cases for the entire course for 
each member. In the excepted school, I was informed that no 
one, under any provocation whatsoever, could be allowed to ob- 
tain any idea regarding the standing of any student. 

In several instances, at the invitation of the Local Pan-Hel- 
lenic Association, I was asked to talk Pan-Hellenic matters with 
the association and give what ideas I had gathered regarding 
rules and conditions in other schools. I met the Dean of Women 
at each school, where such an official exists, at her request, and 
talked over conditions among the college women and how the 


sororities might be of service to college authorities in bettering 
conditions, etc. 

Every spare moment was spent talking, planning with chap- 
ter officers and members, discussing national affairs, hearing 
troubles, suggesting remedies, planning for everything, from 
keeping books and financing houses to "rushing stunts." At each 
school the chapter was urged strongly to do everything possible 
to promote Pan-Hellenic interests and to aid in college organiz- 
ation and interests. Each was urged also to mix wisely social 
and intellectual accomplishments. In every instance, rival fra- 
ternities were delightfully cordial and hospitable. At Madison, 
Kappa Kappa Gamma, at Lincoln, Kappa Alpha Theta, and at 
Berkeley, Kappa Alpha Theta sent invitations to dinner to the 
chapter house, each of which was happily accepted. A number 
of Grand Officers of Kappa Alpha Theta, of Kappa Kappa 
Gamma, Delta Gamma and Chi Omega were met at various 
places and. the little exchange of experiences was exceedingly en- 

The task of visiting the chapters is not a light one. The 
social side alone is wearing, though pleasant, and the energy nec- 
essary to judge quickly and fairly, ferret out true conditions, be 
ready with solutions for any kind of problem, to go with but 
little or no sleep, catch trains at any hour of day or night, etc. — 
this energy expended is incalculable. But if, as is hoped, the 
greater possibilities of usefulness for fraternity members is real- 
ized, if system and order prevail, if more enthusiasm is aroused 
and interest increased, then the first visiting delegate will feel 
that the discomfitures and hard work are more than repaid. 

R. Louise Fitch, Epsilon, '02. 


The Trident 

It has been stated that no fraternity has attempted the pub- 
lication of a regular magazine so early in its history and with its 
strength so untried as Tri Delta. Be that as it may, conceding 
that the making of the attempt was brave, the degree of success 
has proved the attempt well warranted. 

After the first Inter-Sorority conference, held in Boston, in 
1891, a conference of Tri Deltas present was called by Alpha 
Chapter for April 20. The entire active chapter of Alpha was 
present and some of its alumnae. Delta Chapter was represent- 
ed by Edith Noon and Gamma Chapter by Bessie M. Leach. 
This was the first meeting of representatives from more than two 
chapters in the history of the fraternity. It was then and there 
decided that Delta Delta Delta should begin the publication of a 
magazine to be known as the Trident. Emily Frances Allen, of 
Alpha, was elected Editor-in-Chief. It was voted to complete 
one volume each year, that volume to consist of three numbers, 
one issued each term. It was decided to publish the first number 
of the first volume on Thanksgiving Day, 1891, that being the 
third anniversary of the founding of the fraternity. 

This was done and since that date but one number has ever 
been omitted, that being number three of Volume II. It is su- 
perfluous to say that this was owing to lack of funds, as from 
other records it will be seen that the magazine enterprise was 
launched when the fraternity had but six widely scattered chap- 
ters, that it then had but eight and that the first convention had 
not yet been called. 

The Trident has always been issued in its present form, 
octavo.; , The first number contained thirty-four pages. Four 
volumes of three numbers each (omitting Vol. II, No. 3.) of this 
size were issued. With Volume V the publication of four num- 



bers for each volume was commenced. Volume VII saw an in- 
crease to fifty pages per number and since that time to the just 
completed Volume XVI the quality of press work, paper, binding 
and illustration have been steadily advanced as well as the num- 
ber of pages. Volume XVI, No. 3 is the largest yet issued and 
contained 120 pages. 

The Trident remained with Alpha Chapter, Emily Frances 
Allen, Editor-in-Chief, through nine volumes. To anyone famil- 
iar with the history of fraternity journalism, need more be said? 

At the Cincinnati convention, Miss Allen positively refused 
a re-election. At two successive conventions she had been able 
to report a balance in the treasury and the fact was keenly real- 
ized by all that nine years of unflagging zeal and loyalty on the 
part of the Editor-in-Chief and her co-workers had not only 
created an assured future for the magazine but had exemplified 
past all telling the true Tri Delta spirit. 

The fourth National Convention elected Julia E. Closterman, 
Editor of the Trident and placed its management with her chap- 
ter, Zeta, of the University of Cincinnati. Volumes X and XI 
were very satisfactorily edited under this management. The 
fifth National convention re-elected Miss Closterman but she was 
unable to continue in the work and later the Grand Council elect- 
ed E. Anna Harrison, Editor-in-Chief and placed the manage- 
ment with Xi Chapter at the Woman's College of Baltimore, Md. 

Volumes XII and XIII evidence the wisdom of this choice. 
Miss Harrison, who was re-elected Editor of the Trident by the 
sixth National convention, being unable to complete her term re- 
signed and was succeeded by her Assistant Editor, Mary Taylor 
Abercrombie, of Xi. She succeeded nicely with Volume XIV, 
but resigned the task to R. Louise Fitch, of Epsilon Chapter, and 
she as Editor was also commissioned to undertake the business 
management of the magazine. 

To quote the policy of the Editor verbatim from a recent 
letter will give enough reasons why the seventh National con- 
vention elected her unanimously for this position in 1906-1908 
and under such improved conditions of management and finances 
as are explained elsewhere. 

"My policy, in so far as it is possible to define it, in editing 
the Trident, calls first for system. In this is included strict busi- 


ness methods, which comprise closely paid and collected bills, 
promptness, accuracy and courtesy in all dealings. 

As to the Trident itself, the mechanical construction receives 
first attention. The material is arranged in departments, for the 
sake of the convenience and benefit of the readers. Articles are 
headed attractively, cuts printed on clear, good quality paper, at- 
tention is paid to division and paging of articles, so that when 
the magazine is picked up it at once inspires in the holder an 
eagerness to read it. 

Next — material is devoted primarily to the interests of Delta 
Delta Delta, then to general fraternity news and problems, and 
then to general college news, for in a measure college and fra- 
ternity affairs are inseparable. 

The Trident is a newspaper in so far as it is possible to 
chronicle the doings of any and all Tri-Deltas. Each number 
is to contain a carefully prepared "leading article," which is of 
special value from a news or an educational standpoint, to the fra- 
ternity. Each is to contain some bit of brightness, a humorous 
poem, a sketch, an incident, a rollicking song, something that 
cheers and amuses. Chapter letters in so far as it is possible to 
train the writers thereof, are to be void of monotony and super- 
latives, or speaking positively, are to contain, if possible, origin- 
ality, tersely expressed recitals of conditions at each college and 
chapter, that are at once instructive and entertaining. Certain 
issues are to be devoted to special purposes, to the alumnae in- 
terests, to the honors of Tri Deltas, to the Fraternity's history, 
to the writings of talented members, etc. 

Summing up — My policy is to produce a magazine that will 
be indespensible in news and enthusiasm and general fraternity 
instructiveness to any loyal member of the Fraternity. 

R. Louise Fitch, Epsilon, '02. 

The cover design of Volume X and XI was the original 
work of Lavina Perin Gray of Zeta. The credit of the present 
cover design, which was adopted with Volume XV, also goes to 
Zeta as both this and the sketches used inside for department 
headings are again the work of Lavina Perin Gray. 

In making out a table of contents for the Trident no account 
is made of the regular departments which exist in them all — 
Chapter Letters, Alliance Letters, Personals, Editorials, and Ex- 
changes. These departments have been variously handled but at 


present follow the general literary matter in the magazine and 
are very ably ordered and divided as follows — Incidents, Editor- 
ials, Chapter Letters, Alliance Letters, Personals, Marriages, En- 
gagements, Initiates, Births, In Memoriam, Exchanges. 

With the present volume, there began a slight change 
from the idea of a quarterly, the magazine appearing four times 
during the school year, November, February, April and June. 

As noticed elsewhere, the old plan of placing the business 
management with the Chapter of the Editor-in-Chief has been 
abandoned. During 1905-6, the plan of combining Editor-in- 
Chief and Business Manager in one person was so successful that 
the Convention of 1906 sanctioned and continued the custom.

In response to often expressed desires from members of the sev- 
eral chapters of Delta Delta Delta for a journal to represent the 
interests of the fraternity, we begin the" publication of the Trident. 1 
Other Greek letter societies have found such publications beneficial, 
and it is to be hoped that this new venture will prove advantageous 
to the organization in which we take a proper pride. It shall be 
our aim to foster among the members still stronger allegiance to 
the "gold, silver and blue ;" to cultivate higher literary aspirations, 
and to develop, by means of- the fraternity, an increased sentiment 
of loyalty to our respective colleges. While seeking mainly to pro- 
mote the interests of Tri Delta and fraternity life in general, con- 
siderable space will be devoted to college affairs, and to matters 
pertaining to the higher education of women, Although the man- 
agement will endeavor to accomplish these objects, success implies 
and demands the hearty co-operation of individual members through- 
out the order. 

We are grateful for the many kind wishes that have been 
expressed, for the subscriptions and the contributions to the pages 
of this first number. It will be necessary, however, to furnish 
these contributions regularly, and alumni, especially, will please 
bear this fact in mind. 

This initial number falls far below our ideal in many particulars, 
but we have made a beginning. We would avail ourselves gladly 
of friendly criticisms and suggestions in regard to future issues of 
the quarterly.

The Seventh National Convention authorized the publication 
of a Private Bulletin to appear simultaneously with the Trident 
and to be under the same management. It is to be of a variable 
size, as occasion demands. To quote the editor: "Its purpose 
is two-'fold, to curtail the work of the grand officers and more 
thoroughly to acquaint the members of Tri Delta with the work of 
the Council and the problems which continually confront the fra- 
ternity. Convention, Council and Chapter reports, suggestions 
and directions to chapter officers, reports on endowment fund ; in 
short, the private business of the society will be reserved for 
these pages." • 

The Executive Committee of the Grand Council have be- 
stowed the name of "Triton" upon this secret magazine. 

Volume I has been issued, the first number containing twenty 
octavo pages, the second, ten, third thirteen, and the 
fourth thirty-five. No. 1 of Vol. II is just issued and contains 
ten pages. Accompanying the second was a colored print of the 
new official flag design, adopted by the Seventh Convention. 


Probably the most extensive pamphlet issued by the sorority compiled and edited in 1906 by K. Ccurtenay Johnston (Pi), 
Grand Vice President of Gamma Province. It was entitled 
"Chapter House Ownership" and reported the conditions prevail- 


ing September, 1905, in those universities and colleges where 
chapters of Delta Delta Delta were located. Besides giving data 
as to chapter houses or halls rented or owned by all sororities in 
these schools and summarizing the conditions as reported in 
Delta Delta Delta, a set of "Recommendations for Ownership" 
was given, showing "Methods of Building" and a synopsis of the 
expense accounts for the running of the chapter houses of Omi- 
cron, Syracuse, N. Y., Mu, Madison, Wis., and Pi, Berkley, Cal., 
(east, central, west) during October, 1905. 

Particulars of the plan of building the Lambda Chapter 
House, Baldwin, Kansas, and of the accumulation of Pi Chapter's 
Furniture Fund were also appended. 

The Pamphlet contained fourteen octavo pages. 

The following blank reports were issued for 1906 for each 
chapter and alliance and filed as filled and read for convention :

Chapter Record Books 

By the order of the Seventh National Convention, uniform 
Chapter Record Books have been issued to each chapter. 

The technical description of the chapter books is "Flexible 
loose leaf binders, with three rings. Made of best red buffing 
leather, size 9 x 11. In center of outside cover, stamped in gold, 
is the stamp of stars and crescent. The ruling of Treasurer's 
book is the regular ledger ruling, of Historian and Secretary five 
faint (5 faint)." 

Model record pages are enclosed in each Treasurer's and Sec- 
retary's book, while in each Historian's book is a complete out- 
line providing for the keeping of a narrative history of each 
year, an undergraduate and post graduate record of each initiate 
and tables of initiations, social functions, college honors, gradua- 
tions, deaths, marriages and births, with a complete index sys- 

An annual inspection of these books will be made and from 
these records the chapter officers will fill their report blanks foi 
the respective Grand Council Officers. 


The first official directory of Tri Delta was published as an 
appendix to the Trident number of June, 1894, and was com- 
piled by Charlotte E. Joslin, of Alpha, at that time Grand Sec- 
retary. This contained the roll of eight chapters and comprised 
a list of two hundted and thirty-six names with their addresses. 
Miss Joslin issued a separate printed directory for each of the 
next three years and to the Directory of 1896, a page of fraternity 
statistics was added, compiled by Sarah Ida Shaw Martin, then 
Commissioner of Education. The plan of this directory has been 
followed in general by the succeeding secretaries each year. 

The Directory for 1904 contained a list of twenty-two active 
chapters and the lists of officers for nine Alumnae Alliances. One 
thousand three hundred and forty names and addresses were 
listed but this was not a full list of fraternity membership, as no 


names were given from the two defunct chapters or names whose 
addresses were not obtained. 

Nine directories or membership lists have been issued. The 
Seventh National Convention ordered the publication of a direc- 
tory for 1906-1908 that will be somewhat more of a catalogue 
in nature. 


A card catalogue of the members of the fraternity was or- 
dered by the Grand Council of 1904-1906. This has been col- 
lected and filed by Grand Marshal Edna Wharton Hoch, and the 
following is a copy of the blank form used :

There is now going to press for 1900-1908 a catalogue of 
Delta Delta Delta which contains the usual data of name, mar- 
ried name and address of members in alphabetical order and chap- 
ter lists, Alumnae Alliance lists, with positions indicated by marks 
and type. A list according to geographical distribution is also 
included and a map of the United States, showing Chapter and 
Alliance locations. 


During the early history of the fraternity, the Constitution 
was supplied the members and chapters in typewritten copies 
only, but after the Third National Convention (1897), a printea 
Constitution was issued. This has been four times revised and 
reprinted, 1900, 1902, 1904, 1906. 

The size of the printed Constitutions has been 12 mo. The 
covers of the first two were light blue, lettered in gold, and bore 
three golden Deltas above and below lettering. The third issue, 
1902, had yellow covers and black lettering. The fourth, 1904, 
was again bound in blue and nothing appeared on the cover but a 
fac-simile of the badge in gilt. The fifth issue of the Constitu- 
tion, as revised by the Seventh National Convention (1906), ha-; 
just been issued. It is bound in brown, lettered in black and 
contains thirty-two pages, with a leaflet insert of important Con- 
vention rulings. 

Convention Reports 

The Convention reports have always been typewritten cop- 
ies, are verbatim and issued immediately to each chapter and 
officer. Condensed reports are published in the next number of 
the Trident with full descriptions of the accompanying social 

All but two of the Province Convention reports were quite 
fully given in the Trident. 

The Seventh National Convention marked an innovation in 
bringing out Convention reports. The social features and the 
representation were reported in the Trident, while the verbatim 
minutes of the Convention were printed in full in the Triton 
(Vol. I, No. 1), in this way reaching all those engaged in active 


■ >. 


The ritual work of the three degrees of Delta Delta Delta is 
of course not sent to the press. But one typewritten copy is is- 
sued to each Chapter or Alliance. 

The pledging system was made formal and binding by the 
issuing of ritual work for the Trident or Pledging Degree. The 
Stars and Crescent Degree has been worked on by a Ritual Com- 
mittee at each Convention but no integral changes have ever been 

The ritual for the Circle or Alliance Degree was compiled by 
practically the same hands as the two former degrees and has 
suffered but little revision. 

A Post Initiation Lecture, prepared by Ida Shaw Martin, has 
been issued to each chapter. The full meaning of Tri Delta obli- 
gations and the elaborate and intricate details of the symbolisms 
are therein explained. 


The songs of Tri Delta had as their nucleus a collection made 
by Alpha Chapter in the first year of its history. Written copies 
were sent out to the first few chapters. The first copies con- 
tained twelve songs. 

A committee on Song Book has been at work through three 
convention periods, collecting the songs of the various chapters 
and those from time to time published in the Trident. The result 
of their labors finally came into the hands of Louise Chamberlain 
Stahn, Xi, who by her own efforts and the untiring assistance of 
K. Courtenay Johnston, Pi, succeeded on Oct. 19, 1905, in send- 
ing to the press the first Tri Delta Song Book. 

The volume is bound in blue cloth and bears its title in gold, 
"Songs of Delta Delta Delta." The only ornamentation is a fac : 
simile of the Stars and Crescent, also in gold. 

The volume is divided into seven parts, Initiation Songs, Em- 
blem Songs, Songs of Loyalty and Endeavor, In Lighter Vein, 
Songs of Friendship, Farewell Songs, Reunion Songs. There 
are forty-seven songs in all. Only those were selected for this 
volume in which both music and words were deemed suitable and 
in nearly every case the full score of music for voice and piano 
has been printed. 



Original music appears by K. Courtenay Johnston, Pi ; M. 
Louise Johnston, Pi, and Annette Tarleton, Delta. 

There is an index of titles and first lines. 

There also appears a contributor's list, with Chapter's 
credits in the book, as follows :

The first inter-chapter conference of Delta Delta Delta wa.j 
held with Alpha Chapter in Boston, April 20th, 1891. The de- 
liberating body consisted of the active Alpha Chapter and dele- 
gates, Edith Noon, of Delta, and Bessie M. Leach, of Gamma. 
The publication of the Trident was the important thing provided 
for at this time. Emily Frances Allen (Alpha) was elected Ed- 
itor-in-Chief and the business management of the magazine was 
placed with Alpha Chapter. 


The First National Convention of Delta Delta Delta was 
called by Grand Chapter Alpha, to meet with Epsilon Chapter, 
at Knox College, Galesburg, Illinois, May 24-26, 1893. Up to 
this time Alpha Chapter had managed the affairs of the national 
fraternity under the supervision of a Grand President, Sarah 
Ida Shaw. Looking backward now this first Convention looks 
like a small beginning but it was an effective one. But four of 
the eight chapters were represented but so many of the Epsilon 
Alumnae were in attendance that something over forty Tri Del- 
tas were present at the sessions. Bessie M. Leach, of Gamma, 
had been deputized as presiding officer, and Patsie Ingersoll, of 
Epsilon, was elected Secretary. 

The Convention revised the constitution, revised and elab- 
orated both' the pledging or Trident Degree, the Second or Stars 
and Crescent Degree, and provided a place for its Alumnae Al- 
liances already forming, also officially authorized the "Alumnae 
Obligation or Degree" to be used as prepared by the founders, 
and this is now known as the Third or Circle Degree. The Al- 
umnae work was placed in the hands of Alpha Alumnae Alliance. 

Besides the election of the first grand council and discus- 
sions on cuts, badges, etc., a convention system was arranged to 
consist of a National Convention to be held once in three years, 



beginning with 1894, and an annual Province Convention system. 
A tax was levied for the support of the Trident and the man- 
agement of the same commended. 

The charter of Delta Chapter was surrendered, the name 
of Delta Deuteron changed to Delta, and the Delta list affil- 
iated with the Delta Deuteron roll. (The change in the nam- 
ing system was again confirmed by the Third Convention.) 

This convention authorized the call for the Second National 
Convention, to be held with Beta in 1894.

The banquet after the First convention was an informal but 
very pretty affair, and its program was impromptu. 

The ball was the event of the convention and its being the 


first, it seems that the following quaint description from a local 
Galesburg paper will perhaps be interesting and amusing. 

Brilliant Display of Costumes by Those in Attendance. 

The most elaborate social event of the season in fraternity circles was 
the reception held last evening in the Armory Hall. Delegates are here 
attending the National Convention of the Tri Delta sorosis. All the fra- 
ternities of the college had been invited to the reception by the Epsilon 
Chapter of Knox, and showed their appreciation of the courtesy extended 
to them by their general attendance. The guests were received and most 
heartily welcomed by the following committee of Tri Deltas : 

Miss Greig, wearing yellow silk dress with lilies of the valley. 

Miss Wylie, gray and white silk. 

Miss Matteson, moon-on-the-lake silk. 

Miss Eveleth, gray crepe with red roses. 

Miss Berry, green brocade silk with pink roses. 

Miss Leach, white satin. 

The guests began to assemble shortly after 8 o'clock and soon the 
company numbered one hundred and fifty rich and handsomely dressed 
young people. 

Besides the members of the different fraternities here there were, 
present Mr. and Mrs. Parley Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. John Comstock, 
Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Ayers, Dr. and Mrs. Aldrich, Mr. and Mrs. Ed 
Parry, Mrs. George Perrin, Mrs. Asa Matteson, Mrs. Leroy Marsh, Mrs. 
Alden Marsh, Mrs. Egan, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Matteson, Mr. and Mrs. 
Frank Matteson, Dr. W. E. Simonds, Prof. Pratt, Miss Florence Lee, 
Mr. Mack Tanner, of Chicago, Mr. Weir, of Cambridge. 

After spending a time in getting acquainted and in conversation, a 
short dance programme was announced, and those who are lovers of that 
amusement found ample opportunity for enjoyment in the waltz and 
other fancy steps of the dance. Frappe was served from one corner of 
the hall. The music was furnished by the Ideal Orchestra of this city, 
and was all that any one could wish, their playing delighting the entire 

There was noticed in a prominent part of the hall a beautiful bou- 
quet of roses tied with the Tri Delta colors, the gift of the Phi Delta 
Theta boys of the college. 

The dancing closed about 1 o'clock, and the guests prepared to leave 
all congratulating the Tri Deltas for the royal treatment and general 
good time they had made it possible for their friends to enjoy on that 
long to be remembered occasion. 

The delegates left this morning and there were a large number of the 
Tri Deltas and other friends at the depot to bid the visiting delegates 
good bye. 


The second National Convention of Delta Delta Delta as- 
sembled in the Chapter rooms of Beta Chapter at St. Lawrence 
University, Canton, N. Y., Oct. 18th, 1894. In the absence of 
the Grand President, Grand Secretary Charlotte E. Joslin called 
the meeting to order and organization was effected by electing 


Charlotte E. Joslin, chairman, and Emily F. Allen, (Editor of 
Trident) Secretary pro tern. 

In addition to the usual convention work on Ritual, Consti- 
tutions, song - book, jewelers, chapter reports, grand council, etc., 
under Chapter Extension, petitions were received from the Uni- 
versity of Michigan and the University of Nebraska, and discus- 
sions held on matters pending at Syracuse, Northwestern, Mid- 
dlebury and Wesleyan Colleges. 

The management of the Trident was continued and an ap- 
portionment of its support placed on the Chapters. Alpha Alum- 
nse Alliance reported the work accomplished and the strong ap- 
proval df the convention given to this line of effort. Next con- 
vention appointed with Theta, 1897. 

Representation still not being full, an effort was made to 
remedy this before the next Convention by an active member 
tax to equalize Chapter delegate expenses. Grand Council work 
remained as before a matter of personal sacrifice.

24-27, 1897. 

It met in the Medical Building, the Grand President, Dr. 
Caroline Edgar, presiding. In addition to the routine work 
taken up at former conventions, a uniform pledge pin was pro- 
vided, the Installation Service for Convention use was put in the 
hands of Emily F. Allen and the post-initiation lecture in the 
hands of Sarah Ida Shaw Martin. The revised Constitution 
was ordered printed. The Alumnse Alliance delegates were 
given the right to vote, the delegates at large the rights of the 
floor. The financial system was strengthened. Under Chap- 
ter Extension, the petitions from the Universities of Arkansas 
and Indiana were denied. Annual memorial services were insti- 
tuted. The excellent management of the Trident was grate- 
fully recognized. 

The invitation of Zeta for 1900 Convention was accepted. 

The treasurer's report showed a deficit of but eight cents 
for the past three years. 

The Committee on Credentials reported every Chapter and 
Alliance represented and five Grand Officers present.

The Fourth National Convention of Delta Delta Delta was 
held with Zeta at the University of Cincinnati, June 26-29, 1900. 

Besides the usual convention business perhaps the most rad- 
ical measure was the abolition of the Province Convention Sys- 
tem and the provision for Bi-ennial National Conventions. 

Under Chapter Extension work, Iota was allowed to sur- 
render her charter and the petition from Bucknell University 
referred by Beta Province was denied. 

The presentation of an Entertainment Fund to the enter- 
taining chapter was begun. The list of Grand Officers with 
allowed expense accounts increased. Upon Miss Allen's insis- 
tence upon resigning her position, the management of the Tri~ 


dent and its Editorial Board was assigned Zeta. A public ap- 
preciation of her nine years of labor was made. She turned 
over to the new board a perfected and self-sustaining magazine 
with a treasury balance of more than one hundred dollars. 

The Alumnae Alliances here held first separated sessions at 
a National Convention. 

Iota Circle was established. 

The invitation of Alpha for 1902 Convention was accepted.

The Sixth National Convention of Delta Delta Delta was 
held with Epsilon Chapter, Whiting Hall, Knox College, Gales- 
burg, Illinois, June 23-27, 1904. 

Grand President Sara Bartlett Hayes was called away by 
telegram almost immediately upon arrival. The Grand Vice 
President of Gamma Province, Louise Robinson Rhodes, was 
presiding officer. 


Besides the customary Convention and Inter-Sorority work, 
a few new steps were taken. The office of Visiting Delegate 
was created. Work on the eligibility of under-graduates of 
different courses was taken up. Provision was made for a Cer- 
tificate of Initiation. The scope of fraternity examinations was 
extended, questions on other sororities being added. The his- 
tory was ordered published in 1905 and every ten years there- 
after. An Executive Committee was formed within the Grand 

Petitions pending before the Grand Council from the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania, the University of Iowa and the Univer- 
sity of Mississippi were submitted and granted. Several others 
had been negatively disposed of before Convention. 

Model Initiation Rites were conferred upon petitioner, Ola 
Price, now of Chi, and petitioner Valborg Kastman of Phi, be- 
fore the Convention. 

The invitation of Omicron for 1906 was accepted.

The Seventh National Convention of Delta Delta Delta was 
"held with Omicron Chapter, Syracuse University, Syracuse, 
N. Y., June 25-29, 1906. " 

The regular opening session of the under-graduate section 
occurred at 2 p. m., Tuesday, June 26, in Crouse College Chapel. 
The Grand President, Elizabeth Tumbleson Leutscher, of Xi, 
being unable to attend on account of her continued illness, the 
Grand Vice-President of Alpha Province, Carolyn Spencer, 
Omicron, presided over the Convention. A prayer by Lyla 
Johnston, of Omicron, and a welcome by Mary Mott, Ex-Presi- 
dent of Omicron, preceded the formal work of the session. 

Greetings were exchanged by telegram with Chi Omega and 
Pi Beta Phi, also in convention assembled. 

Reports from Grand Officers, Alliance Officers, Visiting Del- 
egate, and of the Delegate to Fifth Inter-Sorority Con- 
ference were very complete and aroused unusual interest. The 
Chapter reports were made on uniform blank forms and were 
very satisfactory. Designs for flags and coat of arms were 
adopted. Work was done on Cut, Certificate of Membership, 
and Song Book Report. Also matters in regard to initiation 
ceremonies, affiliation of transfers, dates of collecting dues and 
eligibility of students in various special courses were considered 
and decided. Uniform reports and uniform chapter record 
books were ordered. Provisions were made for two examina- 
tions during a student's college course. Plans for a Fraternity 
Endowment Fund were formulated and adopted. Chapter en- 
dowment plans were outlined. Stipulations were made for the 


collecting and preserving of complete Trident files by each 
chapter and also recommendations for the presentation to the 
chapter of the badges of deceased members. 

The publication of a private bulletin, (The Triton), the his- 
tory of the fraternity, and a complete catalogue were ordered. 

The Committee on Constitution was : Mary McKay, Sigma ; 
Christine Jansson Howard, Alpha; Rena Handy, Upsilon. Both 
the committee and the convention accomplished hard and im- 
portant work. 

Among the important changes effected were: Radical 
changes made in the method of granting charters, the creation 
of a salary for the Editor-in-Chief of the Trident, and the ad- 
dition of a tenth officer to the Grand Council — a Supervisor of

A number not on this printed program was perhaps the 
event of the evening, a short address by Dr. Eleanor (Pond) 
Mann, '89, Boston University, one of the two seniors most prom- 
inent as founders of Tri Delta. Her interest and enthusiasm 
the years have but increased, as she evidenced by her presence 
and 'her words. The informality of college and fraternity songs 
and calls was a most enjoyable close to the brilliant scene. 

After the banquet on Friday evening at the Hotel Yates oq- 
curred the last official act of the Seventh National Convention of

Eighth National Convention called for 1908. 

These Conventions have not only increased in size and vol- 
ume of business transacted and brilliancy of social functions, but 
they have been a large formative force in the systematizing and 
the forming of working policies. 

Each convention has also been an education to every Chapter 
and an especial advantage to the entertaining Chapter, as evi- 
denced without exception in that Chapter's post convention de- 

The decorations in honor of these conventions have been 
features pleasant to remember. The convention halls have been 
gay with flags and banners of the various colleges and Chapters, 
while remembrances by flower, letter and telegram 'from other 
fraternities have made the day sessions pleasant. At the social 
events, the green of the palms, the brilliancy and odor of count- 
less tropical blooms and the emblazonment everywhere of gold, 
silver and blue amid hundreds of incandescent lights that threw 
their radiance over girls fair of feature and dainty of gown, have 
left in memory's picture a vision of youth and beauty. 

At Cincinnati, the citizens everywhere seemed to know of 
the Convention and hardly a window in the town but had beau- 
tiful figures or emblems in which the colors of Delta Delta Delta 
predominated or reproduced by various conceits of fancy or skill 
the tokens and emblems. Here, too, the banquet hall was large 
enough for the hundred guests to be seated at a triangular ban- 
quet table. At both the convention balls' of 1900 and 1904 im- 
mense groupings of incandescent lights in the form of the Stars 
and Crescent gave forth a dazzling brilliancy. Boston, Gales- 
burg and Syracuse also repeated messages of "Welcome" with 
banner, colors and light. 

In memory, these scenes are lived full oft again, "full of 


youth of spirit, with the benediction of the last song lingering 
in the air." 

National Alumnae Alliance Sessions 

The First Alumnae Alliance Session was called to meet at 
the same date and place as the Second Beta Province Conven- 
tion, Galesburg, 111., Sept. 6-8, 1898. 



Alpha Alliance Bertha Bartlett 

Chicago Alliance Martha (Barden) Cole 

Gamma Alliance Katherine (Spahr) Hull 

Epsilon Alliance Alta (Marsh) Phillips 

Zeta Alliance Lucy Lambdin 

All Alliances in existence at this time, excepting Sigma, 
were represented. The alliance ritual and by-laws received the 
most of the work. 

It was voted that the Grand Officers of the fraternity be 
also the Grand Officers of the Alliance Section. 

It was voted to allow membership to ex-members of college 
Chapters after the year of their class graduation. 

The Second Alumnae Alliance Session was called for 1900, 
with the Fourth National Convention. 

Second Alumnae Alliance Session held on Tuesday, June 26, 
1900, in the Auditorium of the Grand Hotel, Cincinnati, O. 

All Alliances excepting Sigma and Lambda represented. 
Reports of Alliances were given. Committees on Ritual Con- 
stitution work reported and their work was accepted. 

The remainder of the work was advisory to general conven- 
tion work. 

Third Alumnae Alliance Session held in College Club Rooms, 
Boston, Mass., Thursday, June 26, 1902. Delegates from nine 
Alliances reported to roll call, all but Epsilon being represented. 

Besides the usual work, the Circle Degree was conferred up- 
on seven candidates representing five Chapters, that they might 
begin the organization of new Alliances. An Alliance committee 
drew up suggestions for the improvement of the Trident. 

Fourth Alumnae Alliance Session held at Galesburg, 111., 
Wednesday, June 23, 1904. Ten Alliances were represented. 

The work of the advisory committee was enlarged and the 


usual routine work accomplished. The matter of more Alliances 
was thoroughly investigated. , 

The Fifth Alumnae Alliance Session was held at Syracuse, 
N. Y., on Tuesday, June 26, 1906, at 9 :30 a. m., in Crouse Col- 
lege Chapel. Nine Alliances were officially represented and 
Alumnae and ex-members were in attendance from sixteen dif- 
ferent Chapters. 

The principal matters passed upon were the advisability of 
an Alliance officer on the Grand Council, the attitude of Alliances 
on Chapter extension questions, and the elaboration of the Circle 
Degree Ritual. Under the Model Initiation service, the Third 
Degree was conferred upon twelve candidates, ten of these being 
'06 members of Omicron Chapter. The desired provision for a 
tenth Grand Officer, a Supervisor of Alliances was later unani- 
mously made by the Convention body. 

N. B. — [The presiding officers of the Alliance sessions are always the 
same as those of the general Convention and its official delegates are those 
given in Convention Representation as Official Alumnae. The Alliance 
Session has no power to enact laws but simply to confer and deliberate, 
presenting its idea for the consideration of the full Convention in form of 
recommendations. — B. L. P.] 

Province Conventions 

Under the system of government for 1894 to 1900, Prov- 
ince Conventions were held in each Province in every year not 
having a National Convention. 

These were found to be delightful socially, productive of 
much fraternity zeal and enthusiasm, and invaluable in getting 
the Chapters acquainted, but as they consumed much of time, en- 
ergy and money, and as the growth of the general fraternity de- 
manded more frequent conventions with full legislative power, 
the system was abandoned after 1900. 

Those held were really miniatures of the National Conven- 
tions and had fine representation and enjoyable social events. 

The Grand Vice Presidents of those Provinces in session 
were ex-officio the presiding officers of these conventions. Active 
and Alumnae members of the Chapters entertaining produced an 
average working body of thirty to forty members and these un- 
official delegates had all the rights of the floor but voting. 

In all of these Province Conventions matters of interest to 
the locality were considered, plans for Trident and General 


Conventions discussed, petitions for charters received and inves- 
tigated and literary programs held, where specially prepared 
papers on topics of fraternity interest were given from each 

A- reception opened each of them and some formal party or 
banquet closed them. Minor social events and sight seeing in 
the various college towns, also many evidences of courtesy from 
the various chapters of other fraternities are recorded in all of 
the reports.

Grand Secretary, Amy H. Olgen, Upsilon, elected Secretary. 

This Fourth Convention of Beta Province was peculiar in 
two ways. It was held voluntarily by the Province itself, show- 
ing commendable zeal and enthusiasm. It was also, being called 
unofficially after an interim of seven years, an index to a quite 
prevalent feeling in the sorority that the abandoned idea of Prov- 
ince conventions had been a desirable feature. 

Its work was of course unofficial but very helpful to the 
fraternity and to the Seventh National Convention. Inter- Sor- 
ority Conference work and Pan-Hellenism, Finance, Extension, 


Expulsion of Members, Withdrawal of charters, Rushing, Initia- 
tions and Chapter Meetings were the topics considered. 

The following unofficial delegates were present beside the 
active and alumnae members of Upsilon.

Pan-Hellenic Movements 

The history of Pan-Hellenism in the Greek letter world may 
be written in very small space, and strangely enough, notwith- 
standing the prevailing impression about the ability of women to 
work in harmony, by far the greater part of Pan-Hellenic history 
must be written from the feminine view point. 

Beta Theta Pi was the first fraternity to take steps toward 
the formation of a Pan-Hellenic Council and in 1881 adopted a 
resolution that caused an agitation of the question in several of 
the journals of the leading men's fraternities. Notwithstanding 
violent opposition in many quarters, the editors of the Beta 
Theta Pi issued circulars Jan. 13, 1883, proposing a conference, 
"a purely informal meeting." That inveterate fraternity worker 
and eminent authority on fraternity history, Walter B. Palmer, 
whom those who were fortunate enough to have attended the 
World's Fair Pan-Hellenic Congress will remember to have 
heard and met, says in his History of Phi Delta Theta : "At the 
Colonnade Hotel, Philadelphia, Pa., February 22, 1883, a meet- 
ing was held by 21 representatives of thirteen fraternities 
(A T O, B © n, A K E, $ T A, * A 0, 3> K *, 2 X, Z *, 
A T A, A $, $ K 2, * Y, and 2 A E), and 21 other frater- 
nity men (present as unofficial representatives). It was decided 
that there should be a 'Pan-Hellenic Conference at New York, 
July 4, 1884, provided ten fraternities should by Jan. 1, signify 
their intention of participating.' Those present who were editors 
of fraternity journals formed the 'Inter-Fraternity Press Asso- 
ciation.' This meeting at Philadelphia was the first general in- 
ter-fraternity meeting ever held. The Pan-Hellenic Conference 
never materialized, and the Inter-Fraternity Press Association 
did not meet again." He gives a brief outline of the World's 
Fair Pan-Hellenic Movement, in 1893, which, by the way, was 
the first joint Pan-Hellenic Conference of Men's and Women's 
Fraternities. Then later he says, "November 18, 1895, was set 



apart as Fraternity Day, at the Cotton States and Inter-national 
Exposition, Atlanta, Ga. About three hundred Greeks met in 
the Auditorium Building, where W. W. Da vies (<£ A ®), Chair- 
man of the Executive Committee, called them to order. The 
American Hellenic Society was formed, though its objects were 
not definitely expressed. It was decided that the society should 
be represented at the Olympic Games, to be held at Athens, 
Greece, April, 1896, and there was talk of offering a laurel 
wreath to one of the victors, but these plans were not carried 

As the women's fraternities were not a party to this Ameri- 
can Pan-Hellenic Society, then formed, and as no reports of its 
work have been given to the press, definite information of its 
subsequent proceedings can not be here given, but it is safe to 
state that no one has met anywhere, at any time, any athletes 
running at large, crowned with the above mentioned laurel 

William Raymond Baird (B © n) in his Manual of Ameri- 
can College Fraternities, recites under "Pan-Hellenism," the 
first two of the above attempts, then enumerates the advantages 
that might be gained by a general Pan-Hellenic organization and 
the difficulties that confront attempts in that direction. The his- 
tory of this movement among women's fraternities he both de- 
scribes and dismisses with the following sentence : "The women's 
societies have effected an organization which has held several 
meetings and seems to possess some elements of permanence.'' 

Thus it has been left for Delta Delta Delta, it would seem. 
to collect, compile and for the first time to publish a brief record 
of a Pan-Hellenic movement among the Greek Letter Societies 
of American College women, which began in 1891 with the First 
Woman's Pan-Hellenic Convention, received an impetus from 
the World's Fair Pan-Hellenic Congress (1893) and was offi- 
cially revived in 1902, as the First Inter-Sorority Conference. 
Since that date, annual sessions have been held, the reports of 
the Fifth, 1906, recording an increasing scope, authority and in- 
terest in these sessions. 

Inter-Sorority Events 

Woman's First Pan-Hellenic Convention. 
The first Pan-Hellenic Convention of Woman's Fraterni- 


ties was called by Kappa Kappa Gamma to meet with her Boston 
University Chapter, April 15-17, 1891. 

Lucy Evelyn Wight (K K r), was elected presiding officer 
and Emma Harper Turner (II B <£) secretary. Six sororities 
were represented by three delegates each. Delta Delta Delta 
was represented by Blanche Seaver, of Alpha, Bessie M. Leach, 
of Gamma, and Edith Noon, of Delta. 

Committees on Inter-Fraternity Courtesy, Fraternity Jewel- 
ry and Stationery, World's Fair, Greek Journalism, and Inter- 
Chapter Courtesy were appointed, their reports discussed and 
adopted as amended. These adopted reports formed the recom- 
mendations of this Convention and as no provision had been 
made for any resolution to be binding upon the bodies represent- 
ed, the whole work effected was little more than paving the way 
for the Inter- Sorority Conferences which have followed after an 
interim of more than ten years. 

The Woman's Pan-Hellenic Committee for the World's 
Fair was finally merged for work in the joint committee of the 
Men's and Women's Fraternities, known as "The Columbian 
Exposition Committee on Pan-Hellenism of the American Greek 
Letter College Fraternities," of which Richard Lee Fearn 
(B n) was chairman. 

A standing committee on Pan-Hellenism was appointed : 

Austiana E. Taylor — Alpha Phi. 
Bertha Reed — Delta Gamma. 
Bessie M. Leach — Delta Delta Delta. 
Margaret Smith — Kappa Alphi Theta. 
Lucy E. Wight — Kappa Kap-ia Gamma. 
Emma Harper Turner — Pi Beta Phi. 

This committee did little work after 1894. Many pretty 
social events characterized this convention. 

(See Trident, Vol. I, No. 1). 

World's Fair Pan-Hellenic Movements 

The Columbian Exposition Committee on Pan-Hellenism 
held four or five meetings in the Grand Pacific Hotel, Chicago, 
and an attempt was made for an exhibit of the American College 
Greek Letter Fraternities in a space thought to be secured but 
the plan did not materialize. A Fraternity Congress was how- 
ever arranged. 

(See Trident, Vol. II, -No. 2). 


The American Greek Letter College Fraternity Congress of 
the World's Fair Congresses was held in the hall of Columbus, 
in the Art Palace, Lake Front, Chicago, July 19-20, 1893. 

Delta Delta Delta was represented by Charlotte E. Joslin, 
Margaret Emerson, Grace Ayres and Grace Gallison, of Alpha, 
and Bessie M. Leach, of Gamma. 

Richard Lee Fearn, B n, was presiding officer. 

The paper assigned Delta Delta Delta was "Social and Po- 
litical Life in Universities and Colleges" and was presented by 
Bessie M. Leach, Gamma. 

Wednesday morning the program was given by the Men's 
Fraternities, Wednesday afternoon by the Greek Journalists, and 
Thursday morning by the seven Women's Fraternities repres- 

Thursday afternoon, at two o'clock, occurred "The Frater- 
nity and Sorority Reception" in the New York State Building, 
and here Tri-Delta ranks were swelled by finding four girls from 
Epsilon and one from Zeta. One hundred plates were laid for 
Greek Letter Fraternity officers, committee members, speakers 
and journalists at a banquet in the evening. 

(See Trident, Vol. Ill, Nos. 1 and 2).

Reports from each sorority were called for on Pan-Hellenic 
Associations in their colleges. 

Delta Delta Delta presented a very creditable report on the 
Pan-Hellenic Association at the Baltimore Woman's College, 
through Sara L. M. Johnson (Xi). 

(See Trident, Vol. XII, No. 2; Vol. XIII, No. 3.) 

Third Inter-Sorority Conference

The report of Mrs. E. Jean Nelson Penfield (K K r) Chair- 
man Social Service Committee, which had been submitted 
to their Seventeenth Convention, was called for here, read and 

The Conference then adopted three motions as a foundation 
for "Inter-Sorority Social Service Work in our Educational In- 
stitutions" and elected a standing committee to have this work 
in charge. 

This third Conference issued printed reports, a Sorority 
Table and the Committee on Social Customs has printed a very 
full report. 

(See Trident, Vol. XIV, No. 1).

2. No Sorority with a Chapter in a school below collegiate 
rank shall be admitted. 

A constitution was presented and it was moved to submit the 
same to the Grand President of each sorority. Discussions on 
rules of bidding, rushing and the breaking of the same followed, 
and then the printed reports of the Social Service Committee 
were taken up and an additional one made on the co-operation to 
be expected from the men's fraternities in this work. 

Four resolutions on this work were adopted. 

Reports of Pan-Hellenic Associations were given. 

Printed reports of the Fourth Conference have also been

Miss Jobelle Holcombe, X O, Secretary. 

The wide distribution of and interest in the printed reports 


of the Fourth Conference were reported. During the year the 
secretary reported that work had been done on the Woman's So- 
cial Service League. The report of the Fourth Inter-Sorority 
Conference delegates, who had been invited to convene and con- 
fer with the Conference of the Deans of Women in the State In- 
stitutions held in December, 1905, in Chicago, was taken up. 

A petition for investigation of local conditions at Wisconsin 
University, (Madison), from the Pan-Hellenic Association there 
had been received and granted. 

Reports were then read from each sorority represented. 
Mrs. Tennant, of Alpha Chi Omega, was appointed a committee 
of one to correspond with the visiting delegates of the various 

The report of the representative committee sent to Madison, 
Wis., was given by Mrs. Amy Olgen Parmelee (A A A) and the 
requests of that local Pan-Hellenic Association and those com- 
ing from other schools were then received and passed upon. 

It was moved and carried that sororities in High Schools 
and other secondary schools should be discountenanced, and it was 
recommended that after four years from date of notification by 
Grand Presidents, each sorority in the Inter- Sorority Conference 
refuse to admit any young woman who has been a member of a 
sorority in a High School or secondary school. 


A model Constitution was drafted and again presented to 
the Grand Presidents of the various sororities for consideration 
before the next conference. The former Constitution submit- 
ted had been unconditionally approved by all but two soror 

A model Constitution for local Pan-Hellenic association was 
adopted and ordered printed for distribution as follows: 



The name of this organization shall be the Pan-Hellenic Association 
of the 


This Pan-Hellenic shall : 

1. Fix the date of pledge day. 

2. Regulate the rules for rushing.

Besides the model constitution and printed reports of the Fifth 
Conference, there emanated from the Inter- Sorority Conference 
management a pamphlet report on the joint meeting of Deans 
and Advisers of Women in State Universities and Representa- 
tives of the Inter- Sorority Conference. 

This report takes up the following lines: 

I. High School Sororities. 

II. Cutting classes and Poor Work. 

III. Increased expenditure. , 


IV. Attitude of Sorority girls to Non-Fraternity Men. 

V. Attitude of girls to men whose conduct could justly be 

VI. Cheating. 

The three recommendations of the Fourth Conference and 
the four of the Fifth Conference were again emphasized. Work 
was done on the matter of official badges. 

The Conference adjourned to meet September, 1907. 
(See Trident, Vol. XVI, No. 1). 

In closing this chapter on Inter-Sorority work, a few ex- 
tracts from the report made at the Syracuse Convention by Tri- 
Delta's Delegate to the Fifth Inter-Sorority Conference are ap- 

As Miss Olgen was AAA delegate to the Third, Fourth 
and Fifth Conferences, was secretary of the Third, chairman of 
the Fourth, a member of the Madison I. S. C. Committee report- 
ing to the Fifth, and was Grand Secretary of Delta Delta Delta 
for 1904-1906 and elected Grand President for 1906-1908, by 
the Seventh National Convention, it is thought that no more 
authoritative summary will be needed. 

"Whatever may or may not have been accomplished at the 
Fifth Inter-Sorority Conference, held in Chicago, September 14- 
15, 1906, the very fact that the conference did meet then for the 
fifth consecutive year, was a source of gratification to many of the 
delegates who have been privileged to attend all the meetings 
and who have had a part in this big movement from the small 
beginnings of earlier years. When such a project as the Inter- 
Sorority Conference was an experiment, both to ourselves and 
to the entire Greek world, masculine and feminine, we were 
granted by the masculine half or three-fourths of that world, 
five years, at the longest, in which to prove beyond shadow of 
doubt that there could be no inter-fraternal relationship on any 
basis. Those who scoffed at first, remained to study and finally 
to imitate, and now we hear of local Pan-Hellenics among the 
men and some talk of a similar national organization. 

To the women most interested, it did not take more than one 
year, or at most two, to prove the experiment a success, nor long 
er than that for the fraternities most interested to determine to 
perpetuate the movement. The genuine and abiding interest in 
the Inter-Sorority Conference is evident in the fact that a number 


of delegates have attended every conference thus far held, and 
that the delegates are now almost without exception members of 
Grand Councils and Executive Boards, a number of them being 
the chief executives in their respective organizations. 

The Fifth Conference was important in that it framed a con- 
stitution which is to be approved at the next conference. This 
is only a simple working constitution but it is important in that 
it settles many disputed points and defines clearly the object 
and powers of the conference. 

Much good has been accomplished by the Inter-Sorority Con- 
ference, but there is room for much more work and there is no 
reason why future conferences should not continue to do even 
more. The object of the Inter-Sorority Conference is so broad 
that it opens up a big field of work. The primary object has 
been and is to improve methods of rushing and pledging. None 
have felt the evils in rushing and pledging more keenly than so- 
rority members themselves ; none have suffered from them so se- 
verely as the members themselves. The colleges and universities 
where such evils are unknown or have been reduced to a mini- 
mum are few and far between. Certain evils have been entirely up- 
rooted. No pledging before matriculation is now done at any 
college or university where two or more nationals exist. There 
are two exceptions now, but it is expected that these two will 
very soon conform to the general rule. In these same institu- 
tions there exist local Pan-Hellenic Associations which fix the 
definite date of pledging after matriculation, and in nearly every 
case, rules have been adopted which have limited or actually done 
away with rushing. 

It is hoped that in time the present primary object may be- 
come secondary, and the entire time and attention of both Inter- 
Sorority Conference and local Pan-Hellenics, be centered on the 
many other problems of sorority life. 

Many different activities of the Inter- Sorority Conference 
are classed under the head of "Social Service Work." Sorority 
problems are not problems confined to the organizations as such. 
They are co-existant with many general educational problems. 
Sororities owe their very existence to co-education. Almost 
without exception, sororities were born in co-educational institu- 
tions. By far the greater number of chapters, and usually the 
strongest chapters, are located in co-educational colleges and uni- 


versities. If co-education is still on trial, then the life of soror- 
ities is not assured. Whatever problems co-education presents, 
must necessarily become sorority problems. For selfish reasons 
alone, then, we must help to make co-education permanent and 
assured and more general than at present. But we are working 
for philanthropic reasons also, because we believe firmly that as 
organized bodies, we have more or less power to aid in any 
movement for good, and we believe that in some cases, certain 
desired results can be obtained through such organizations as 
ours, and through such only. Many problems of education, from 
the woman's side, have already been made the subject of much 
discussion. Committees have been steadily at work on such 
questions as "adequate dormitory facilities," "value of sorority 
houses," "rules and regulations governing same," "need of Dean 
of Women in every co-educational institution," "high standard 
of scholarship," "adequate but uniformly democratic social life 
for all," "limitation of excessive expenditure on social func- 
tions" — and most important of all — "college ethics and morals." 

But the , field of activity has not been confined to higher 
education only. Leaders of secondary education are facing a 
serious problem in the High School fraternity and sorority. 
Magazines and newspapers are full of agitation. Litigation has 
resulted in many places. Whole communities have been stirred. 
The Inter- Sorority Conference has considered this question and 
finds a remedy in .the proposed motion now before the national 
organizations : 

Resolved, That the Sororities in High and other secondary 
schools be discountenanced, and that four years from date of no- 
tification by Grand Presidents, each Sorority in the Inter-Sorority 
Conference refuse to admit any young woman who has been a 
member of a sorority (any secret society) in any high or sec- 
ondary school." 

If this motion is carried, there can be no more speedy and 
effective method of absolutely crushing the High School sorority. 
If the fraternities will then do likewise; this problem will be eas- 
ily solved. 

So far Delta Delta Delta has taken an active part in the In- 
ter-Sorority Conference. Both Council and Chapters, Active and 
Alliance, have uniformly supported the most progressive resolu- 
tions and recommendations proposed by the Conference, and 


have readily voted in favor of all proposed legislation. Chapter 
reports show a deep and intelligent interest in Inter-Sorority 
matters and the majority of Chapters have taken a strong initia- 
tive in the local Pan-Hellenics. The magazine, The Trident, 
devotes considerable space each issue to matters of Inter-Soror- 
ity interest and the editorial policy is to support and advance the 
movement in every possible way. The Grand Council is united 
in insisting upon the absolute enforcement in spirit and in letter 
o'f all Inter-Sorority conference legislation. .

General Notes 

The major portion of the history of any fraternity must be 
the history of its individual chapters and again of its individual 

Lack of space limits the writing of this real history. But 
leaders have been attempted. All the Chapters report many so- 
cial events of the rushing season. "Let not the student idea be 
put into the back-ground by social ambitions," might be a watch 
word for inter-sorority work. 

Fraternity or Founder's Day and Chapter Day are two reg- 
ular celebrations provided for every Chapter by the Constitution. 

Not many years have elapsed in which to attain post-gradu- 
ate distinction and but little has been attempted in gathering such 
statistics. A large percentage of Tri Delta graduates are found 
enrolled in the home circles of the land as wives and mothers. 
Perhaps to them in one sense has come the greater opportunity. 
The majority of these are still students, fraternity workers, Wom- 
an's Club workers, and anxious guards of the American public 
school system. 

Almost the entire remaining list of graduates are teachers 
in some line, public or private, excepting the few whose profes- 
sions are given. Who shall say how great the work of the 
teacher or how large the awaiting reward? 

Something of the growth of Tri Delta may be appreciated 
when one glances at the annals of the Conventions of 1893 and 
1894 and then remembers that a recent Trident article (Vol. 14, 
No. 1) stated that at the Y. W. C. A. Student Conference, at 
Lake Geneva, Wis., Sept. 1-12, 1904, eight Tri Deltas were pres- 
ent representing six different Chapters in five different states. 
This was the largest representation of any sorority. Each sub- 
sequent student's conference has reported meetings of various 
numbers of members from widely scattered Chapters and hardly 
a Trident but records the accidental acquaintances made through 



meeting wearers of the Stars and Crescent. Interlaken, Switz- 
erland, the Alps and Pike's Peak were among some of the more 
recent meeting places. It is interesting to note that the first 
chance meeting recorded was between representatives of Alpha 
and Gamma, (Bertha Gardner and Matie T rumble) under the 
great dome of the National Capitol, Washington, in July, 1891. 
(See Trident, Vol. 1, No. 1.) 

At the Pan-Hellenic banquet, held at Des Moines, Iowa, Jan. 
26, 1906, out of the ninety-seven fraternity women present, rep- 
resenting eight Sororities, ( Kappa Alpha Theta. Aloha Phi, Delta 
Delta Delta, Gamma Phi Beta, Alpha Xi Delta, Pi Beta Phi, Kappa 
Kappa Gamma and Delta Gamma), eighteen were Tri-Deltas, 
representing four chapters, Delta, Phi, Epsilon and Kappa. At 
the World's Fair Pan-Hellenic reception and banquet (1893), 
ten Tri Deltas met, representing four Chapters, Alpha, Epsilon, 
Gamma and Zeta. Fifteen Tri Deltas met at the St. Louis Fair, 
1904 (June 26). Many inter-chapter parties, chapter house par- 
ties and excursions have been enjoyed. 

It will of course be realized that in compiling Chapter his- 
tories, inaccuracies and omissions must of necessity occur. The 
manner of keeping records and of reporting the same have in the 
past varied so much in the different Chapters and the honor cus- 
tom in voge is so different in the various schools that each report 
must be considered a separate unit. Nevertheless something of 
computation, inaccurate though it may be, is interesting. The 
lists record ninety members of Phi Beta Kappa, in Delta Delta 
Delta. (Kappa Alpha Theta founded in 1.870, reports but 
ninety-six in Baird's Manual). But fourteen of the Chapters 
are in institutions conferring this honor and two of them have 
given it but a short time. In one of the Chapters carrying a 
small membership, Sigma, fifteen girls have won the key. Over 
eight hundred honors and positions in college are reported, with 
the majority of the Chapters reporting only those of greatest 
significance and one hundred and fifty names have recorded with 
them something of Post Graduate distinction, although prior to 
last year nothing had been done by the Chapters in collecting or 
filing such data. 

Much that was of interest in local Chapter life was necessar- 
ily abridged or omitted. Every Chapter meeting other Nationals 
reports Pan-Hellenic Associations, a few Faculty Pledge Days. 


A close and commendable guard over the scholarship and general 
college standing of the members is in evidence in every record. 

If the past is a true index to the future, the next historian 
of Delta Delta Delta will be able to compile a brilliant report of 
that which these years of growth and preparation have made it 
possible to achieve. 

Only those students are eligible for active membership in 
any of the Chapters of Delta Delta Delta who are candidates for 
the regular degrees (A. B., Ph. B., B. L. and B. S. or their su- 
perior degrees) or are specials who are taking ten hours a week 
in work leading to those degrees or are students in the College 
departments of Engineering, Domestic Science, Art, Music, 
Oratory, Law, Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy, who are tak- 
ing three or four year courses leading to degrees or certificates 
where the entrance requirements are equivalent to those for en- 
trance upon a regular college course. 




Alpha Chapter was founded at the University of Boston, 
Boston, Mass., on Thanksgiving Eve., November 28, 1888, by 
two Seniors, Sarah Ida Shaw and Eleanor Dorcas Pond, who 
soon associated with them two other Seniors, Isabelle M. Breed 
and Florence I. Stewart. These four, almost at once , proceeded 
to select a full Chapter, pledging three girls from the 
junior class, five sophomores, and six freshmen. Miss Shaw 
and Miss Pond began the revealing of the new rites to this 
group, in class order, on January 15, 1889. The first initiation 
was completed at the home of Emily F. Allen on Joy street on 
that evening, and on the following Monday eighteen Tri-Delta 
pins announced to the Greek letter world of Boston University 
that the rumors of a new society were based on the fact that a 
thoroughly organized Chapter had taken its place in their midst. 

The first nineteen names on the Alpha Constitution are giv- 
en below in the order in which they are signed, with their respec- 
tive classes indicated. The two names enclosed in parentheses 
were for some reason added after the first initiation January 15, 
1889. On January 18, a special initiation was held admitting 
Marion K. Norris.

Chapter Data. 

Regular rooms for chapter meetings are now maintained 
and it is the custom of non-resident students to find accommoda- 
tions together. Alpha Chapter entertains its Alumnae at least 
once a year and the Alumnae give the chapter an Annual Christ- 
mas spread. A Pan-Hellenic reception called Klatsch Collegium 
entertains them at an open meeting early in the spring, a play 
before the College Philomathean Society and the Annual initia- 
tion banquet are the regular social events of the Chapter, that 
take precedence over the various informal dances and parties. 
This year the classes are also being entertained. 

Besides the responsibilities and burdens of founding and ex- 
tending a national sorority borne so long and successfully by 
members of Alpha Chapter, and the Chapter as a whole, else- 
where recorded, one will see, by turning to publications, how for 
nine long years, — the first years, the hard years, an Alpha girl 
was Editor-in-Chief of the Trident and that with her and with 
Alpha Chapter rested the responsibility of its business manage- 
ment. To Alpha Chapter girls must be given also the honor of 
organizing the first Alumnae Alliance and of giving the necessary 
successful impetus to such a movement as to assure its adoption 
by the fraternity at large. Alpha Chapter also conducted itself 
in such a manner as to secure recognition as a national sorority, 
even before its first Convention, being invited in April, 1891, to 


assemble its delegation of three for representation in the Wom- 
an's Pan-Hellenic Convention, called by Kappa Kappa Gamma. 

In 1902, Alpha Chapter entertained the Fifth National Con- 
vention in a manner that did credit both to its record as a parent 
Chapter and to the beautiful places of historical and literary fame 
which they by virtue of location could offer the sight seeing dele- 
gates, when an hour could be snatched from work. 

Other sororities precede Delta Delta Delta in date of estab- 
lishment, a few in length of chapter roll but none are prouder of 
the rank and location of the College, where their parent chapter 
was founded, nor can another outrival Delta Delta Delta in the 
earnest steadfast purpose of the Alpha members or in the success 
attending their every effort.

There is absolutely no recognition of an honor system at

of such things. She has always had her share of representation 
on the University Beacon, in the Proctor-ships, in the Klatsch- 
Collegium, Gamma Delta Society, various College clubs, Y. W. 
C. A. and the Junior Week Program (new in 1904). A few po-

(Delta Deuteron formerly.). 


Delta Chapter was installed in Simpson College, Indianola. 
la., May 10, 1889, by Etta May Budd, of Alpha. Sarah Ida 
Shaw and Etta May Budd inspired the local L. F. V. sororsis, 
existing in the college successfully since 1871 and numbering 
ninety-five members to apply for a charter in Delta Delta Delta. 
This was the second Chapter established and was known as Delta 
Deuteron until the First National Convention, when the system 


of naming was changed and this Chapter became Delta, with the 
list of the former Delta Chapter affiliated. Miss Budd was at this 
time a member of the faculty at Simpson College. 

The local, having abandoned the idea of founding a national 
was investigating Greek letter societies with a view toward peti- 
tioning some one of them later, when the acquaintance of Miss 
Budd, of Alpha, was made and thus Tri-Delta chosen. On April 
19, 1889, a pledge was signed by three members of L. F. V. for 
the society, Mrs. Alice Barker Berry, '72 (A. M.), Mrs. Dora Gil- 
ford Honnold, '75, and Miss Carrie McCausland, '89, who then 
received the ritual and then preceeded to initiate the others. 
The initiation took place at the home of Mrs. Dora Gifford Hon-

In 1896 a room was rented for meetings. A Chapter House 
was maintained last year for those members not residents of In- 
dianola. Owing to the late pledge day this year (1907) it was 
thought best to give up the house this year, but plans are made to 
have a fine one next year. One formal party is given each term 
and a farewell meeting for the Seniors held the last day of Com- 
mencement Week. On this occasion, the officers for the ensuing 
year are installed. 

On account of the forty-five years history back of the L. F. 
V. Sorosis, Delta Chapter has had most valuable alumnae support. 
An old banner is found here of blue plush lined with silver silk, 
edged with silver fringe and emblazoned with a golden Delta. 

Delta Chapter reported thirty-six elective and honorary posi- 
tions held in 1905 and 1906.

While the custom was still in vogue among fraternities and 
sororities to initiate well known people as honorary members, 
Mrs. J. Ellen Foster, Lecturer and Social Service Worker, was 
initiated by Delta Chapter, (1891). She was recently detailed 
from the Department of Justice by direction of President Roose- 
velt to investigate the condition of woman and child workers 
throughout the country. A recent New York Daily has the fol- 
lowing to say of the appointment: 

"Mrs. Foster has had years of philanthropic work that peculiarly fits 
her for gathering just such statistics. She was among the first women 
in the country to study and practice law, and most of her clients were 
moneyless and defenseless women and children. 

"She has been prominent in most of the best reform movements 
which have engaged women's clubs and societies, and usually had charge 
of the work of crystallizing the sentiment into political action. 

"On two occasions she brought special trainloads of factory women 
from New England to testify before senate committees as to their wages 
and living conditions. 

"In 1900 Mrs. Foster was appointed by Secretary of State John 
Hay to represent the United States in the International Red Cross 
Conference at St. Petersburg. Last year she accompanied the Taft 
party to the Philippines and made a special report to President Roose- 
velt on the condition of women and children there. 

"Mrs. Foster returned from a trip around the world a few months 
ago, in the course of which she studied the condition of women and 
children in China and India."

Epsilon Chapter was founded at Knox College, Galesburg, 
111., in 1889, by transforming a local society formed in March, 
1888, and known as Kappa Beta Theta, into the third Chapter of 

This society had been organized for the purpose of procur- 
ing a charter from a national and while considering the matter 
began correspondence with Sarah Ida Shaw through the influ- 
ence of mutual fraternity acquaintances. The charter was 
granted July 9, 1889, by the three grand officers. 

In August, 1889, Miss Hattie Berry, of Delta (Deuteron) 
Chapter, came and initiated the Chapter, that they might get their 
pins and arrange their plans before college opened. The initia- 
tion took place in Phi Gamma Delta Hall and the event was fol- 
lowed by a banquet. Regular organization and installation with 
some accompanying social events occurred at the Thanksgiving 
Eve following and in some way the date of the installation of Ep- 
silon Chapter has always been given as Thanksgiving Eve, 1889.

Chapter Data. 

The college does not allow its sororities to maintain either 
Houses or Halls but meetings in the homes are systematically 
carried on and great vitality and enthusiasm is shown here and 
in a series of elaborate social functions given each year, includ- 
ing a formal ball, a reception, banquet and many minor events. 
The annual Thanksgiving banquet is a double celebration for 
this Chapter, and Upsilon, Gamma, Delta and Phi Chapters have 
had representatives present at this affair. 

The Chapter has stepped outside mere college activity and 
furnished one of the rooms of the Free Kindergarten Building of 
Galesburg and does active personal work there each week. 

A summary of the long honor list gives the following: 

There have been 137 girls initiated, 45 have been members 
of L. M. I., 25 of Y. W. C. A., 6 have been graduated in piano, 
1 in violin, 3 in voice, and 57 from college; 19 first prizes have 
been won, 10 second prizes, and 70 elective offices in college or- 
ganizations have been held (not including class plays). 

There have been 62 marriages and 5 deaths in the chapter. 

Many Epsilon girls have been prominent in the social and 
literary life of Galesburg, after graduation, one year's report 
showing each of the four leading literary clubs of the city pre- 
sided over by a Tri Delta. 

A Chapter whose strength at home made it impossible for 
it to realize the struggles of a new and as yet unorganized nation- 
al, Epsilon received something of a shock when it invited the 
First National Convention to come to Galesburg and witnessed 
the arrival of so few delegates. Those few, however, were 
royally entertained and went away very proud of the Chapter that 
had received them. Epsilon has the unique honor of having en- 
tertained two National Conventions, and the numbers of the Sixth 
Convention must have satisfied the wildest dreamer of them all. 

This Convention found that the hospitality, praised of old, 
was still characteristic there. With Epsilon also met the First 
National Alumnae Alliance session, at the time of a Beta Prov- 
ince Convention, 1898. 


At present the burden of the Trident rests with one of their 
members and the glory of her achievements rests on Epsilon.

Delta Chapter was installed at Iowa State College, Ames, 
Iowa, in June, 1890, by Etta Mae Budd, of Alpha. Miss Budd. 
B. S. '82, was a daughter of the Professor of Horticulture of 
Iowa State College and had been perfecting her education at Bos- 
ton University and upon her return to her home college had been 
elected a member of its faculty. Having given up her former 
idea of establishing a national fraternity and finding her old local 
W. D. T. disbanded, in spite of anti-fraternity disturbances, she 
found no difficulty in organizing a Chapter for the new national 
with which she had identified herself in Boston, Alpha Chapter 
of Delta Delta Delta. 

Charter Members. 

The following were all Senior girls who were chosen and 
initiated as charter members: 

Minnie A. Adams. Sappho Lane. 

Blanche M. Bradley. Minnie A. Malley. 

Etta M. Budd. Olivia M. Morton. 

Lynne Chevalier. Violet N. Quint. 

Carrie L. Cottrell. L. May Roddis. 

Mary H. Cottrell. Evelyn E. Starr. 

To this number were soon added: 

Nellie E. Dean. Eva Speer. 

Trident Degree — 

Flora Wilson. 

Chapter Data. 

It will be remembered that this College was the scene of the 
most violent anti-fraternity disturbances on record and that mat- 
ters were finally carried into the courts for adjustment, by chap- 
ters of the various men's fraternities. 

The Chapter of Delta Delta Delta remained loyal and earnest 
but after being forbidden to initiate more members (in 1892), 
discontinued its work on account of this faculty anti-fraternity 
legislation. It surrendered its charter to the First National Con- 
vention and from this time Delta Deuteron Chapter, located at 
Simpson College, Iowa, received the name of Delta, affiliating 
the former members of that Chapter. 

In the spring of 1906, the Editor of the Trident noticed the 


names of some of this Chapter in a list of people participating in 
a Pan-Hellenic banquet at Waterloo, Iowa. Correspondence 
immediately revealed the fact that Tri Delta bonds were as 
strong as ever and their interest in the national fraternity great, 
although fate had denied them a chapter home. Fourteen mem- 
bers were fully initiated here and two pledged or Trident Degree 
members existed. Tri Delta has never counted Delta at Iowa 
State College as a fairly established Chapter as the date of its 
initiation services and the anti-fraternity rulings so conflicted 
that it had no actual college existence. But the zeal and loyalty 
of its initiates have been appreciated all the more, and when one 
considers that this was not only an unsuccessful attempt but the 
unsuccessful attempt of a new sorority, the lasting interest of 
these girls is a splendid testimony to the value of its rites. 

Post Graduate Mention. 

Etta May Budd, who had joined her forces and plans to Tri Delta 
while in Boston, was not only the organizer of Delta Chapter, but also 
transformed the L. F. V. Society of Simpson College into Delta Deuteron 
Chapter of Delta Delta Delta. She was for several years a member of the 
Simpson College Faculty. 

Evelyn Starr (since deceased), was a post graduate student at Ames. 

Eva Spear was a daughter of Prof. Spear, at that time Superintend- 
ent of U. S. Experimental Station. 

Flora Wilson (a pledged member), is the daughter of the Professor 
of Agriculture at that time, and he has since become a member of Presi- 
dent Roosevelt's Cabinet, while Miss Wilson is now studying in Paris. 

May Roddis Kruger is now in the Philippines, the wife of a U. S. 
army captain. 

College Data. 

Iowa State College was established under a grant for agri- 
cultural schools in 1869. Fraternities were ruled out in 1890- 
1891. Recently the rulings have been favorable again and some 
of the men's fraternities and Pi Beta Phi have reopened their

Gamma Chapter was installed at Adrian College, Adrian, 
Mich., on Feb. 22, 1890, in W. C. T. U. parlors, by Mrs. L. A. W. 
Stevens, of Alpha. 


The group of girls composing it received all possible aid and 
encouragment both from the local chapters of the men's frater- 
nities and from various members of the faculty, it being felt that a 
second national sorority would be a good thing in the school. A 
local had been in existence since the beginning of the college 

Charter Members. 

Bessie M. Leach. Matie Trumble. 

Rose McCormick. Eva Rorick. 

Anna Poage. Daisy Mulvane. 

Anna Louise Porter. Fronia Rhonemus. 
Emma Kinney. 

Chapter Data. 

The Chapter has always maintained a chapter hall, located in 
a front wing of the girls' dormitory. A regular rent is paid for 
the hall and it is provided with all modern conveniences. It has 
been refurnished and re-decorated by the chapter for 4906, this 
being the third time that it has had renovation. Tri Delta girls 
at Adrain have always added to their creed the fostering of loy- 
alty to their Alma Mater. 

Weekly meetings are held. An opening party, a Pan-Hel- 
lenic affair of some kind and the Annual Reunion Banquet are 
the more important regular social duties. 

No record of minor college honors and positions has been 
kept, but Gamma Chapter reported the following college posi- 
tions for 1905-'06 : 

Senior Class Prophet, an Eulogist, Reciter, and Debater for 
Literary Societies' Anniversaries, Vice President of Y. W. C. A. 
and President of College Alumni Association. 

In her history Gamma Chapter has enjoyed three positions 
on the college faculty, five assistant or tutor positions and four 
of its girls have become wives of faculty members. In the first 
year of its organization, out of seven girls in college holding 
High School graduation first honors, five were on this Chapter

deputy for Grand President Sara Ida Shaw, Alpha. Miss Jack- 
son had been the moving spirit in the petitioning body and had 
made the trip to Meriden, Conn., where Miss Shaw was teach- 
ing, to take the initiation service direct from her as soon as the 
news was received that the charter had been granted. The 
initiatory banquet was held January 11, 1892. The St. Law-

Delta Chapter a reception February 13, 1892.

Chapter Data. 

S i~ 

A Chapter House has been maintained for some time, pro- 
vided by their honorary member, Mrs. H. A. Cowen, for a time, 
but now supported by the girls. A goodly portion of a fund for 
the purchase of a home has been accumulated. Formal events 
here are Annual Initiatory Banquet, a joint celebration of Found- 
ers' and Chapter Day held some time between Thanksgiving and 
Christmas, annual Christmas celebration, Annual Alumnae Re- 
union Banquet and three or four other variable functions. Reg- 
ular meetings are held each Saturday evening. 

Beta Chapter entertained the Second National Convention 
with credit to itself and satisfaction to the fraternity. The first 
convention picture was made at this time. 

St. Lawrence University has been the scene of some very 
interesting sorority history, and Beta Chapter made as heroic a 
struggle as any Chapter ever recorded, and was rewarded by a 
remarkable success. To some of those who had watched and 
worked during the trying times recorded in their secret annals, 
the delegation of twenty-one members who came down to Syra- 
cuse to the Seventh National Convention was an inspiring sight. 
Besides having furnished a fourteen room Chapter House, Beta 
Chapter has made quite a start on a Chapter Endowment Fund. 

Besides the listed honors, the following positions were re- 
ported for 1905 — Vice Presidency of three classes and of the 


Thelomathesia, representation on the Laurentian Board and the 
Presidency of both the S. L. U. French Club and the S. L. U. 
German Club.

cent, swung from a silver Trident.

Zeta Chapter was installed at the University of Cincinnati, 
Cincinnati, O., May 23, 1892, by Emma B. Kinney, of Gamma, 
and it was through her efforts that the petitioning body for Zeta 
Chapter was assembled. Her home was in Cincinnati and when 
she decided to give up her work in Adrian College and enter her 
home University, it was her steadfast purpose to organize there 
a creditable chapter of the then young national sorority, in 
which she had been such an enthusiastic charter member at 

The pride and strength of the local sororities there at the 
University at that time can scarcely be estimated by people ac- 
customed to measure things by the national standard. Miss 
Kinney's judgment both on character and scholarship was also 
of an unusually keen discrimination so that her task consumed 
nearly two years, but the history of Zeta Chapter and Zeta Al- 
liance declares to all how wisely and well it was accomplished 
and how loyally the early support that she gained work with her 
and for Tri Delta.

Chapter Data. 

Meetings are held every other Saturday in the homes. 
Every two months a joint session of Alumnae Alliance and Chap- 
ter is held. Dances, plays, luncheons, and banquets are regular 
affairs. As an unusually large proportion of members are of 
Cincinnati families and thus the Alliance numbers more than 
fifty, the joint meetings are very large affairs. Those who at- 
tended the Fourth National Convention of A A A will never for- 
get the elaborate manner in which Zeta Chapter entertained. 
The gorgeous window decorations of the city, in honor of the 
Convention, bore witness to the fact that the Chapter was locally 
appreciated. For years a very strong and old local and two 
other good locals were formidable rivals, but the Convention of 
1900 was so convincing that since then Zeta has had a free range, 
K K r installed a Chapter here in 1885 but it existed but a few 
months, its charter being withdrawn in 1885. 

Zeta Chapter has also borne the responsibility of editing the 
Trident and borne it with credit. Miss Julia Closterman was 
the second editor-in-chief, assuming her duties at the beginning 
of the tenth volume and continued them througli the eleventh 
with a marked success. She was the first editor to use an illus- 
trated cover, the admirable and significant design being the 
work of one of Zeta's members, Lavina Perin-Gray. Beside 
informal rushing parties, the last year recorded in October a 
dance, at the Allamont Hotel, a "bal poudre," in December, and 
a dance June the fifth. On Founder's Day the Alliance gave 
the banquet. 

Over thirty college elective and honorary positions were re- 
ported for the past year.

pondence with the petitioners through Florence M. Jackson. 

The original three who selected the nine charter members 
were Eva Jones, Annie L. Sherburne and Irene Lee. Kappa

town. Both formal and informal parties are given. Re- 
unions are a feature. 

Besides the listed honors, seven committee positions were

Theta Chapter was installed at the University of Minne- 
sota, Minneapolis, Minn., Feb. 21, 1894, by Almedia Laurson, 
(Grand President) of Epsilon. 

A group of girls as early as 1890 had made application for 
a charter of Delta Delta Delta, but failing to satisfactorily group 
the requisite number, they had become discouraged and finally 
obtained a charter in another national sorority. In 1892, Louise 
Robinson began correspondence with Sarah Ida Shaw, relative 
to another petition, and at last the charter was granted to the 

Charter Members. 

Florence Louise Robinson. Caroline Edgar.

Chapter Data. 

A chapter room has always been maintained, where weekly 
meetings are held. Social meetings are held once a month at 
the homes of the town girls. Some three or four large dancing 
parties are given during the year. On Chapter Day here the 
Alumnae give the banquet. There is a Christmas celebration 
and the spring brings either a steamer trip down the Mississippi 
or lake excursions. Although this Chapter was preceded in the 
field by four strong nationals, it at once took good standing and 
has always been strong locally, as well as a Chapter assuming 
willingly the responsibilities of the general sorority work. 


The Third National Convention was really the first succes- 
ful and representative one, the one that marked a success at- 
tained, and this Convention was held with Theta Chapter and 
with a Theta Chapter girl, Dr. Caroline Edgar Erdman, in the 
chair as Grand President. 

As the majority of the members are either Minneapolis or 
St. Paul girls, no need of a Chapter House has been felt, but a 
suite of four rooms has been rented for the present year and pro- 
visions for a permanent fund made both by under-graduate work 
and by alumnae pledges of $25.00 per capita.

Iota Chapter was installed in the University of Michigan, 
Ann Arbor, Mich., on Nov. 1st, 1894, at the home of Effie Lvnch 


Danforth, by Bessie Leach Priddy (Grand Vice President) and 
Eva M. Rorick, both of Gamma Chapter. 

This Chapter was organized in the earlier days of the fra- 
ternity when the Grand Council alone voted upon the petition- 
ing body and when investigations into local conditions were not 
made in person. The splendid recommendations of the appli- 
cants and the size of the student body promised well. 

Charter Members. 

D. Zena Thomson. Almarene Orsborne. 

Leonore Loxley. Effie Lynch Danforth 

Harriet Brown. Josephine R. Powell. 

Nellie M. Walters. Gertrude M. Brown. 
Nell Kempf. 

Four others were initiated at that time : Ruth Wales Butterworth, 
Blanche Young, Lucile Shelley, Harriette Averill. 

Chapter Data. 

This chapter up to July, 1900, had initiated thirty-two mem- 
bers and pledged two. It graduated twenty-two members. All 
the then existing women's fraternities were represented at Ann 
Arbor, and Iota Chapter found the rivalry so bitter that they be- 
lieved the situation made their members unhappy and gave no 
benefit to the general fraternity. They decided to discontinue 
their efforts and sending two delegates to the Fourth National 
Convention, they loyally revealed the whole situation and vol- 
untarily surrendered their charter. They were unanimously re- 
leased and their delegates present given the Circle Degree with 
power to create an Iota Aliance at their discretion. 

Iota maintained a Chapter House during nearly her whole 
history. Some of the girls were prominent in the work of the 
Woman's League, in College Dramatics, and many of them re- 
ceived advanced or professional degrees!, after their regular 
college course. Many of them have also been located in positions 
of honor and responsibility since their graduation. 

Effie Lynch Danfurth was a teacher of Classics in a private 
School for Girls in New York City in 1902-'06, also a student 
of Archaeology in Rome, 1903. Blanche Boyle received the de- 
gree of M'. D. at Ann Arbor, in 1904, having spent four years 
for a literary course and two in medical ; after the Tri Delta 
Chapter House was closed, she was a member of the woman's 
medical fraternity. The Misses Reichman won distinction as 


scholars and one of them represented the Woman's League on 
the Michigan State Federation of Woman's Clubs' program, 
while the other took Post Graduate work at the University of 
Chicago. Mary Field is assistant Matron in Maxwell Station 
social settlement work in Chicago. Ruth Butterworth affiliated 
with Zeta. 

The following was passed by the Cincinnati Convention and 
appeared in Trident, Vol. IX, No. 4: 

"The Delta Delta Delta Fraternity in convention assembled 
at Cincinnati, O., this twenty-ninth day of June, 1900, desires to 
make the following statement concerning her Iota Chapter at 
Ann Arbor, Mich: 

Owing to the rumors and the criticisms made against Iota 
Chapter of A A A in the student body at Ann Arbor, Iota 
Chapter has for same time contemplated the advisability of 
voluntarily surrendering her charter. 

This matter had been thoroughly investigated by members 
of the Grand Council of A A A and came before this Convention 
for consideration. The present Chapter was perfectly vindi- 
cated. Yet, under the present conditions, it was deemed advis- 
able to allow the Chapter to voluntarily surrender its charter, the 
Convention expressing its entire confidence in the petitioning

Kappa Chapter was installed in the University of Nebras- 
ka, Lincoln, Neb., at Ashland, Neb., in the home of Dr. Von 
Mansfelde, by Lora Allen, of Delta, on Nov. 28, 1894. Upsilon 
Chapter was instrumental in its formation and the Chapter of 
Delta Gamma there gave friendly aid, some of its members hav- 
ing Tri Delta friends in Galesburg. 

An unusual circumstance occurred here, as two groups of 
girls were petitioners at the same time for a charter in Tri 
Delta. But when the group headed by Miss Frankish and 
Anita Muir, although later petitioners, received the affirmative 
vote, their disappointed rivals offered friendly congratulations. 

On Nov. 29, a reception introduced Kappa Chapter to the 
University life.

Chapter Data. 

Kappa Chapter has supported a Chapter House for seven 
years, excepting the year 1905-'06. This was due to poor 
accommodations in available houses, rather than to any inability 
on the part of the sorority. At present a beautiful home is 
maintained in the heart of the city, one block irom the State 
Capitol and next door to the Governor's Mansion. The Man- 
sion might almost be called Kappa's second home, as its mis- 


tress is an honorary member of Tri Delta and hospitably re- 
ceives all the girls. During this year eleven girls occupy the 
Lincoln Tri Delta House, a much larger number than is found 
in any other sorority house in the city. 

Kappa furnished her present home in a uniform style, with 
gifts from active and alumnae members and several of the fra- 
ternities, the weathered oak idea is very well carried out. She 
prides herself on having not a "rooming place" but a complete 
home in every sense of the word, and that idea prevails thro' 
out the school in connection with the Tri Deltas' Lincoln quar- 
ters. Mrs. Dr. Holyoke, a well known singer and a lady of 
great prestige in local circles, owns the house and resides with 
the girls. The Chapter is making plans for a still better home for 
next year, and hope before many years to own a home. 

The annual Thanksgiving banquet combines the celebra- 
tion of Founder's Day and Chapter Day, and is made the elab- 
orate event of the year. Upwards of seventy-five to a hundred 
Kappa girls assemble at that time. 

During the second semester, Kappa gives her large formal 
annual dance, to which she invites members of outside soror- 
ities. In the spring the ever enjoyable "Tri Delta Picnic" takes 
place, and a series of receptions is given the Faculty. 

Kappa Chapter made one of the best scholarship records 
found among Lincoln sororities at the mid-semester report, and 
has initiated eight very strong freshmen this year, beside sev- 
eral good upper classmen. Mayme Hartley, a new initiate, re- 
ceived a state commission to visit and report on social condi- 
tions in the Philippine Islands, Gov. Poynter receiving her re- 
port with sincere praise. 

Kappa Chapter is now president of the local Pan-Hellenic 
Association. 1905-'06 report recorded the following positions: 

President University Girls Club, Second Asst. German De- 
partment ; and members on Annual Board, Y. W. C. A. Cabinet, 
Senior and Junior Societies, Freshman and Sophomore Basket 
Ball Teams, German, Latin and English clubs. 

Kappa will entertain the Eighth National Convention in the 
summer of 1908.

Medal for Personal Bravery. (Miss Steele received this medal for brav- 
ery shown in rescuing a young man, a student of the University of Iowa, 
who had broken through the ice and was drowning ; she being a member 
of the skating party at the time — 1905. Thus far she is the only woman 
who has received a Carnegie medal for heroism.)

Lambda Chapter was installed at Baker University, Bald- 
win, Kansas, Mar. 12, 1895, by Hattie Berry Morley, of Delta, 
with whom a great deal of the correspondence preliminary to 
petitioning for a charter had been conducted. 

In the spring of 1890, a local sorority had been established 
at Baker named the Zeta Iota Chi, with the ultimate object in

view of obtaining a charter from a national. Tri Delta was the 
sorority chosen for first application and of the eight charter 
members of Zeta Iota Chi, five later became members of Tri 
Delta. The Petition was sent to Delta Delta Delta in Decem- 
ber, 1894, and Dr. Caroline Edgar Erdman announced the af- 
firmative vote on Mar. 1, 1895. On Tuesday night, Mar. 12, 
twenty-one Zetas became Tri Deltas and on Mar. 13, at the home 
of Mrs. Cutter, Lambda made its first formal appearance, giv- 
ing a reception to the other societies and the faculty.

A Chapter house has' been successfully maintained for sev- 
eral years. The parlor was furnished by the Alumnae, the re- 
mainder by the Chapter. Their renting days they hope will soon 
be over, as a new house has been built for them at a cost of $10,- 
000.00, to be occupied in 1906-7 and which ulrfmately will be 
their own. 

' Meetings are held each Fridey night. A large formal 
party is given each term and a Tri Delta breakfast during Com- 
mencement Week. Last spring vacation brought a "House 
Party" for the Chapter, given by Anna Hoch at her home, "The 
Governor's Mansion," Topeka. 

The banner for Lambda Chapter designed and executed by 
Georgiana Reed, aroused much attention at the Third National 
Convention (1897) and is perhaps the oldest elaborate one in the 
sorority. It is painted in water colors on white satin and 
swings from a golden rod by the tri-colored cord. The design 
is the figure of Poseidon in a golden chariot, driving three 
horses through the waves. In his right hand is the Trident, above 
his head the Crescent, while there is a Star on the fore-head of 
each horse. At the top of the banner, are emblazoned three 
golden Deltas, while in the three triangular portions of the 
lower part are the pine and the pansies. 

150 History of delta delta delta. 

Lambda Chapter had something of an interest in national 
affairs last year, when their Anna Hoch was invited, as daugh- 
ter of the Governor, E. W. Hoch, to stand as Sponsor at the 
christening of the Battleship Kansas. The christening took 
place Aug. 12, 1905, at Camden, N. J. Another Lambda 
girl, Ora Allen, made the trip as part of the official party, to 
act as Maid of Honor. The christening was effected with a 
smooth and beautiful ceremony and Psi Chapter girls of Phila- 
delphi having been invited for the occasion were there to witness 
and to greet. The ceremony was also somewhat unique, as the 
Kansas was the first battleship in the world to be christened 
with water alone. The sponsor was presented with a bracelet 
of dull gold ornamented with raised water lilies, encrusted with 
emeralds and bearing on the inner side an appropriate inscrip-

Sigma Chapter was installed at Wesleyan University, Mid- 
dletown, Conn., Mar. 15, 1895, by Sarah Ida Shaw, (G. C. E.), 
Emily F. Allen (Editor Trident), Grace L. Bond and S. Eliza- 
beth Jones, all- of Alpha. 

As early as 1891, the petitioning of Tri Delta for a charter 
was agitated at Wesleyan, when Maud Muzzy, one of the first 
year initiates of Alpha, was a student there and Sarah Ida Shaw 
was a teacher at Meriden, eight miles away. No plans ma- 
terialized, however, until thirteen girls in A. K. U.; an open so- 
ciety in the University, began under the leadership of Mary 
McKay to think and plan for a national sorority chapter. When 
it came to a question o'f which sorority it should be, one of their 
number, Anna J. Kellogg was urgent for an application to be 
made first to Tri Delta, she having become interested in Tri 


Delta while a pupil of Miss Shaw's at Meriden. Finally a 
delegate, Grace Bunnell, was sent to Alpha Chapter and upon 
her return the petition was immediately drawn up and formally 

On March 19, the local sororities then existing there, Phi 
Sigma and A. K. U. tendered to Sigma Chapter of A A A the 
first national sorority there, a reception in recognition of their

A Chapter room is maintained where meetings are held every 
Friday evening. The celebration of initiation, Founders' Day 
and Chapter Day are here the only formal social events but many 
informal affairs are given at the homes of resident members and 
alumnae. Sigma girls have always been active in class, literary 
societies, college publications and Y. W. C. A., and have en- 
joyed their quota of honors. They have been girls above the 
average in scholarship and the Chapter percentage of graduation 
is high. 

In 1905 and 1906, Sigma held the presidency of '06, four 
speakers on class day, and every important Y. W. C. A. office.

Upsilon Chapter was installed at Northwestern University, 
Evanston, 111., June 1st, 1895, by Eleanor Milchrist, Epsilon, and 
Hattie (Berry) Morely, of Delta. The girls began working for 
their petition early in the year, their aim from the first being Tri 
Delta. They did not receive their charter until late in the year 
as one of the eastern Chapters was dubious about granting a 
charter so far west. Initiation was hurried through on June 1 
before the girls separated for the summer. The next fall but five 
returned and then the struggle began. With six strong sororities 
already in the field the new one had to fight for its existence. But 
at the end of the year the Chapter numbered 15. It was put on 
a firm basis and has flourished ever since.

Chapter Data. 

The sororities at Northwestern University have their fra- 
ternity rooms on the fourth floor of one of the women's dor- 
mitories. Here they hold meetings every week, feeling very 
secure in their little "sky-parlor." The time of the meeting is 
from five to seven, social and business sessions are combined, a 
supper being served by a committee of three each time. 

In former years, the sororities were not compelled to pay 
room rent, but this year there is some talk of charging from 
$25.00 to $50.00 per year for a room, according to the size of the 

Upsilon Chapter owns its furnishings and tries each year to 
add something in the way of china, silver, pictures, or anything 
that the Chapter is especially in need of. A piano is the next 
thing in view. 

The important social functions for each year are Informal 
Dance for Initiates, Initiation Banquet, Formal Dance for other 
Sororities, Christmas Party, and Alumnae Luncheon. 


One of the peculiar local customs is on certain days of field 
sports to have a "Sorority Dash/' where each sorority has its 
colors worn by a runner. The silver, gold and blue has been 
first at the goal its share of times in this mock trial of strength, 
just as it has also achieved distinction in its real trials.

Nu Chapter was installed at the Ohio State University, Col- 
umbus, Ohio, Mar. 31, 1896, at the residence of Fannie Rock- 
well, by Bessie Leach Priddy, of Gamma, assisted by Harriet 
Averill, of Iota, and Mrs. Baldwin, Lavina R. Perrin, Florence 
Lawler, Bessie dollar, Julia Bentley and Julia E. Closterman, 
of Zeta, and Ruth Butterworth of Iota and Zeta. Sarah Ida 
Shaw Martin was influential in the formation of this Chapter. A 
reception to various university people followed the initiation at 
the residence of Prof. Kellerman. It was appropriate that 
Gamma and Zeta should aid in this installation, as two of Nu's 
charter members had received inspiration from these Chapters.

Meetings have been held at the homes on each Saturday 
night, a goodly number of the girls being residents of the city. 
During the past year, however, a chapter room has been rented. 

The initiation banquet is made an Alumnae reunion affair, 
the mid-winter term sees a formal reception and dance combined, 
and the spring a tally-ho ride, village dance and supper, or 
something largely informal.

of Alpha, assisted by Edith M. Wait, Bertha Jackson and Loraine 
Thomas, of Beta, Annie Sherburne and Emily Lucia, of Eta, and 
Mabel Terry, of Gamma. 

The petitioners had been a local since 1895, known as Chi 
Alpha, organized by Mrs. B. W. Brown and Ethel Embury for 
the purpose of securing a charter in a national. Ten names ap- 
peared upon the petition to Delta Delta Delta, which petition 
was granted in something over a year after its presentation. The 
initiation service took place at the home of Mrs. B. W. Brown, 
on Crouse Avenue, during the afternoon of October thirtieth and 
was probably more elaborate than ever before attempted. In the 
evening a reception followed at the home of Ethel Embury and 
upon the evening of October thirty-first was the installation of 
officers and a banquet at Hotel Vanderbilt. All of the women's 
sororities entertained in honor of Omicron.

A Chapter House has been successfully maintained from the 
very first year. The first house was at 301 Marshall St., the 
present one is at 301 Waverly Avenue. The house is owned by 
Prof. Holzworth, the husband of an honorary member. It con- 
tains fifteen rooms, $1500.00 worth of furniture has been accum- 
ulated, a rental of $660.00 a year is paid and the Chapter is cre- 
ating an endowment fund by a $25.00 per capita graduate tax. 
The annual events with this Chapter are a Freshmen Party, a 
Mother's and Patroness Party, Alumnae Reception, Initiation 
Banquet and Senior Banquet. Last year a reception was given 
to all other sororities and to the Faculty on October second. 

Fresh and pleasant in the memory of one hundred and sev- 
enty-five Tri Deltas, representing every Chapter and Alliance, are 
the days of the Seventh National Convention in Syracuse, and to 
Omicron Chapter is gathered its full measure of praise and 
gratitude for the purely unselfish, caretaking and thoughtful man- 
ner in which the Convention was entertained. The business 
ability of the Chapter took care of major and minor matters so 
uniformly well that the Convention was able to accomplish an 
unprecedented amount of business most easily, and business and 
pleasure met and mingled and parted with correct measure and 

Omicron graduated twelve girls this year and ten of these 
took the Model Initiation Rites of the Third or Circle Degree be- 
fore the assembled Convention.

Mu Chapter was installed in the University of Wisconsin, 
Madison, Wis., April, 1, 1898, by Eva Barker and Ethel Mackin- 
tosh, of Upsilon, and the inspiration for its formation came from 
this Chapter. There was no public local organization before the 
charter was granted. The idea had its origin in a group of four 


girls who were rooming in the same house, but no plan was con- 
ceived until some time after the rumors had begun to float in 
the college circles that a new sorority was to be organized. 
Three of the girls remained in their junior year, and with the 
available material which they saw, they considered that the time 
was ripe for a serious effort. The application was sent in the 
late fall. Just before the holiday vacation, Mrs. Elizabeth Gibbs 
Palmer, Vice President of Beta Province, came to inspect the 
girls. In March, news was received of a favorable decision, and 
the initiation ceremonies and banquet were held at the home of 
one of the girls, on the evening of Friday, April 1st.

In 1903, this chapter made a three year lease of a Chapter 
House and in 1903 renewed the same lease for two years. Be- 
sides meeting a rental expense of $840.00 a year, Mu Chapter has 
furnished its home with credit to itself. A furniture fund was 
started at first by each alumna giving ten dollars and each active 
girl twenty dollars. Since that time substantial additions have 
been made each year out of the profits of house-keeping and also 
many handsome gifts have been received from alumna. The 
treasurer's books for 1905-6 showed the year's expenditures to 
have been $3,400.25. There are seventeen rooms in this house 
and fourteen girls have lived in it the past year. 

Besides the informal dancing, card and dinner parties given 
each year at the Chapter House, one formal and two informal 
parties are given in rented halls. The freshmen annually enter- 
tain the freshmen of the other sororities by a formal reception 
and each of the other classes entertain once a year. 

During 1905-1906, the Presidency of the Girl's Athletic 
Association was held by this Chapter and an active part taken in 
this line of work by many of the members.

Xi Chapter was installed in the Woman's College, Baltimore, 
M'd., Nov. 25, 1898, at the Hotel Allamount, Eutaw Place, by 
Elizabeth Gibbs Palmer, of Gamma Chapter, Grand Vice Presi- 
dent of Beta Province. The local called Tau Delta, petitioned 
Delta Delta Delta because Lida Kirk had a friend in Omicron 
Chapter, Lena May Corbin and because they liked a stray copy 
of the Trident.

Chapter Data. 

Following the custom of the College, this Chapter has no 
Chapter House but a room for meeting in one of the Dormitories, 
Glitner Hall. This they have furnished in Mission style. Here 
are held Thursday afternoon teas each week. Business meetings 
are called each Saturday evening. Meetings occur once a month 
in the homes of the alumnae. "A Coming Out Party" for new 
members and a "Year End Banquet" are annual features. 

The Pan-Hellenic movement among the women's sororities 
has been especially successful here and the report of one member 
of Xi, Miss Sara La Maistre Johnson, on the local Pan-Hellenic 
Association and its work, which was made at the solicitation of 
the officers of the Second Inter-sorority Conference, commanded 
wide attention and interest in fraternity and college circles. 
See Trident, Vol. XIII, No. 3. 

With this chapter rested the burden of the editing and pub- 
lishing of the Trident for three years, from 1902-1905. The 
ability to accept and perform this work was remarkable in so 
young a chapter, it having been established but four years when 
the work was undertaken. The burdens put upon the home and 


business life of Baltimore by the great fire made it impossible 
to continue in this work but the volumes of the magazine issued 
here remain as a monument to the industry, energy and good 
taste of their management. 

This Chapter also has the honor of mothering the edition of 
the first song book, Nov., 1905. 

A commendable loyalty to an enthusiasm for the Alma 
Mater was evidenced at Baltimore, when for 1905-'0G all the 
sororities turned into the fund for the college debt what would 
have been used for social affairs and held simple and inexpensive 
little events for themselves.

A Chapter House is maintained, leased for five years at a 
rent of $840.00 a year, the furniture of which has all been pur- 
chased by the Chapter and is of a handsome character. 

Dances, general Receptions, Faculty Receptions, and weekly 
informal evenings at Chapter House constitute the amusements. 

The list of college honors speaks plainly for the great activ- 
ity of these girls in all phases of college life. While the earth- 
quake and fire at San Francisco was a great disaster to Universi- 
ty circles, yet Pi Chapter had much for which to be thankful, 
even in the midst of her great sorrow. Their president, Louise Reid, 
lost two sisters and a niece, killed by falling buildings at Santa 
Rosa, and Violet Patterson lost her home in San Francisco. 
Many of the chapters of the different sororities and fraternities 
there lost a very heavy per cent of their enrollment through this 
great disaster, but Pi has commenced 1906-'07 with new cour- 
age and bright prospects. 

The following college positions were reported for 1905-'06 : 
Assistant in Chemistry ; tennis champion ; captain Freshman 
Basket Ball team ; secretary A. W. S. ; members on Prytanean, 
Senior Play, College Annual, Musical Club, Treble Clef, and 
Social Committee.

Although this is a young chapter in a school where many 
other fraternities have preceded it, yet the three years of its 
existence record a goodly number of undertakings. 

In social lines, 1903-1904 hold in its list two formal dances, 
at Brinkerhoff Hall, three Theatre Parties, Initiate's Luncheon 
at Sherry's, Opening Luncheon at White Plains, Pan-Hellenic 
Reception besides many minor affairs. 

The first formal party of 1904-1905 was a dance, then came 
a Luncheon at the Manhattan, followed by a Theatre Party giv- 
en in honor of Janet Priest, of Theta, who was "Muggsy" in the 
""Maid and the Mummy Company," playing in New York at that 
time. An initiation luncheon and a luncheon at White Plain? 
were the other larger attempts.

ley, by Sara Bartlett Hayes, (Grand President), Alpha, Carolyn 
Spencer, (Grand Vice President Alpha Province), Omicron, and 
Elizabeth Tumbleson, (Grand Secretary), Xi. 

As early as 1898, petitions from Bucknell had been received 
but no degree of success had been attained until this group took 
up the matter in 1902. Their persistence and the very loyal sup- 
port of faculty and friends procured the necessary personal in- 
vestigation which revealed so favorable a situation that the grant 
was made.

Although having but little more than two years of college 
existence behind it, these girls have had much to report. Re- 
ceptions, spreads, and parties, have been one side of their 
social life, excursions into the beautiful country surrounding the 
University another. Many functions in honor of the Chapter 
have been given by the patronesses and friends. An Annual 
Symposium is given at the close of the school year. Besides the 
listed honors, the Chapter held the Presidency of both the Col- 
lege Girls' Association and the Girls' Dramatic Club this year.

Chapter Data. 

A Chapter Hall was rented during 1905-6 and all phases of 
sorority life entered into with zeal. Seven different social af- 
fairs were reported during the rushing season previous to the 
two Pledge Service events. A Pan-Hellenic Reception was giv- 




en in honor of Visiting Delegate, R. Louise Fitch, Nov. 15, 
1905, at the Burkley Imperial and it fell to the lot of Tri Delta 
this year to give the "big party," as it is dubbed in college phrase 
here. The date of this was January 12th. The Armory where 
it was held was gay with silver, gold and blue. About four hun- 
dred guests were present. This "big party" is a custom pecu- 
liar to the institution, each sorority entertaining all the other fra- 
ternities in school once in four years. Five minor social events 
were reported between this and the Farewell breakfast given 
June 12, 1906, to close the college year. 

The Chapter reported the following honors and positions 
for 1905-'06: 

One Phi Beta Kappa. 

Two Scholarships, one instructor in physical training and one in 
English department. 

Two presidents of Literary Societies. 

Vice President and Cabinet Officer of Y. W. C. A. 

Vice President of Freshman class. 

A pretty home has been rented for 1906-7, completely fur- 
nished, and a most successful year is being enjoyed. In the sec- 
ond year of her existence Phi Chapter has dared to assume the 
burdens of conducting a chapter house although her rivals had 
hesitated to do so for twelve and fourteen years but her success 
and satisfaction have been great.

Chi Chapter was installed at the University of Mississippi, 
on Sept. 22, 1904, in the Law Lecture room of University Build- 
ing, by Elizabeth Tumbleson Leutscher, Grand President, of Xi, 
R. Louise Fitch, Grand Vice President of Beta Province, and 
Irene Olson, both of Epsilon, assisted by Ola Price, previously 
initiated at the Sixth National Convention. 

The petitioning body was a local Tau Delta Theta and was 
highly recommended by every Greek letter fraternity at the Uni- 
versity. It had been established in 1896 and had been unusually 

A unique feature in the installation of Chi Chapter was the 
arranging of the festivities, which took place at the home of 
Vice Chancellor Dr. Jones, in such a manner as to mark the fare- 
well to Tau Delta Theta symbols, as well as the introduction to 
the insignia of Delta Delta Delta. 

It was peculiar and unfortunate that three of the petitioners were 
ill at school with typhoid fever at the time of the initiation and 
could not attend. Another was delayed by poor train connections 
and did not arrive until the morning following the initiation.

Many large and small social functions have been reported

to celebrate the changing of some old Tau Delta Theta into a 
full-fledged Tri Delta. On one of these occasions, the wife of

one of the new Professors, Calvin S. Brown, was the initiate, 
who as Maude Morrow had been a member of the old local. 
The following - press clipping speaks for itself: 

"The University Community makes a double gain in securing the 
services of Dr. Brown, in that he brings with him his bride, one of the 
most distinguished graduates of the University, Miss Maude Morrow, 
who won distinction here as a student, taking the degree of Bachelor of 
Arts and Master of Arts and who until recently has filled the chair of 
Greek in Agnes Scott College." 

The Chapter hopes to maintain a Chapter Hall as soon as 

the new Science Hall is completed enough to obtain a room 
therein. Six of their girls take B. S. degree in June, 1907.

Chapter rooms are rented near the University. In these 
weekly meetings and various social affairs are held. Although 
on account perhaps of college discriminations against women un- 
der-graduate students, the active Chapter has been small for a 
time, the zeal and enthusiasm have been most commendable. 
(Recently more classes have been opened to women at this Uni- 
versity) . 

The financial management has been excellent, for the 
Chapter rents two large rooms near the University and the treas- 
urer of the Chapter reports the handling of considerable sums for 
various other matters.

enough to be in the full swing of all phases of college life, schol- 
astic, athletic and social, Alpha Xi is rapidly proving that it was 
neither a mistake to put a second Chapter in the sunny southland 
nor yet another to place a second one in a college for women 
only, especially when both of these colleges belong to the list of 
the "thirteen best" designated by the United States Commissioner 
of Education.

lege positions for 1905-6.

N. B. — Th<* term "honorary member" perhaps needs explanation. 
Until the Fourth National Convention there v as but one ruling on the 
subject, that of the original constitution entitling each chapter to three 
honorary members. It was found that customs varied, some fully initiat- 
ing the three selected, thus entitling them to wear the badge, and some 
merely giving them the colors or oledge pins and regarding them as 
patronesses. Since the ruling of 1900, no honorary members have re- 
ceived initiation, thev being at present merely patronesses of the various 
chapters. Those initiated prior to 1900 were women of national promin- 
ence, members of the different faculties, or wives of various faculty 
members, usually women holding college degrees. — B. L. P. 


General Note 

Until quite recently all the work on the Alliance movement 
has been in the cities where the active chapters exist, with but 
one exception, "The Chicago Alliance," and that of course was 
very near to Upsilon. All the Alliances assist the Active Chapters 
in rushing season, re-union affairs, and Pan-Hellenic Association 
work and help them financially. Each Alliance member is 
pledged to the support of the Trident. Regular communication 
is kept up between the distant members by means of "Round 
Robin Letters." All Chapters report interchange of entertain- 
ment with their Alliances. 

M. Katherine Ratterman, of Cincinnati, Zeta Chapter, was 
appointed Alliance Supervisor for 1905-6 by Grand President, 
Elizabeth Tumbleson Leutscher and the Seventh National Con- 
vention showed its appreciation of her work by adding an Al- 
liance Officer to the Grand Council number and electing Miss 
Ratterman unanimously to that position. Under her care and 
attention the interest and zeal in various city centers has awak- 
ened and several city Alliances are in process of formation, those 
in Milwaukee, Wis., and Des Moines, la., promising speedy re- 

The Alliances can scarcely be listed in any other way than in 
order of their formation. 

Alpha Alliance 

The girls of Boston University have the honor of forming 
the first Alumnae Alliance, as well as of founding the first Chap- 
ter of Delta Delta Delta. 

Alpha Alumnae Alliance was organized August 29, 1892, at 
the home of Emily F. Allen, Pinckney St., Boston, by Sarah Ida 
Shaw, Charlotte Joslin, Emily F. Allen and Grace Ayres of Al- 
pha. The First National Convention (1893) recognized the Al- 



Hance officially, making extensive provision for the Alliance 
movement and putting the matters of future organization, ritual 
work and constitution in the hands of the founders of this first 
Alliance. Alpha Alliance was represented at the Second Nation- 
al Convention. 

The meetings of Alpha Alliance are held the first Saturday 
of each month of the school year, usually in the rooms of the 
active chapter. Besides business sessions, both literary and so- 
cial sessions are enjoyed and on several occasions speakers have 
been provided and open meetings held. 

Nearly one hundred per cent of Alpha Chapter graduates 
have been enrolled since the Alliance was formed. A joint com- 
mittee of Chapter and Alliance has charge of mutual work. 

Epsilon Alliance 

Epsilon Alumnae Alliance was the second one to form and 
was organized at Galesburg, 111., by Mrs. Alta Marsh Phillips, 
Martha Stone, Lillian Emrich, Estell Johnson and Grace Matte- 
son, resident graduates of Epsilon Chapter, March 2, 1896. All 
resident members of the Active Chapter come into the Alliance 
upon leaving school and those near enough to the city to attend 
any meetings. The monthly meetings are of a social nature or 
on fraternity work and philanthophic lines are not forgotten as 
each week sewing is done for the free kindergarten. The Al- 
liance also in 1904 aided the Active Chapter in furnishing the re- 
ception room of the free kindergarten building. 

They meet with the Chapter several times during the year 
and take an active part in the Thanksgiving Banquet celebra- 
tion, the chief Chapter event of each year. 

Many of the members hold offices in, and are connected 
with the various Literary, Musical and Philanthrophic organiz- 
ations of the city. 

Chicago Alliance 

Third in order, the Chicago Alumna? Alliance was organ- 
ized by Eleanor Dorcas Pond Mann, one of the founders of Al- 
pha Chapter*, at 1223 Milton Ave., Chicago, May 15, 1897. Her 
work in effecting this organization was an evidence of the abiding 
interest which she has alwavs manifested in the welfare of Tri 


Delta. Those joining were Mrs. Edna Wolfe Pearson, Lambda, 
Mrs. Martha Barden Cole and Mrs. Ola Ingersoll McChesney, 
of Epsilon, Myrtle N. Stillwell, Ella F. Tobias and Jessie Milne, 
of Gamma, Alma S. Fick, of Zeta, Lottie B. Watson, Grace 
Clough, Franc Watson and Lorena G. Watson, of Upsilon, and 
Margaret Emerson, of Alpha; Delta Chapter was also repre- 

Meetings were held with great regularity for a time, but 
later great distances in residence proved an almost insur- 
mountable obstacle and the Alliance has considered it best to be 
merged with the Upsilon Alliance, now in process of organiz- 
ation. Many more Tri Deltas have been located in Chicago and 
suburban cities and the new organization promises to be very 

During the past spring, Ethel Andrews, Epsilon, and Amy 
Olgen Parmelee, Upsilon, have arranged for monthly luncheons 
of all Chicago Deltas, and representatives from Upsilon Active. 
Three have now been held, and the interest and attendance is 
increasing each time. The luncheons are held the first Saturday 
in each month at the Carricabbie Rooms, Madison street. 

Zeta Alliance 

Zeta Alumnae Alliance was the fourth to form and was, it 
might be said, the first fruits of the Chicago Alliance and the 
enthusiasm aroused by the Third National Convention. It was 
organized at Cincinnati, Sept. 2, 1897. The formation was in 
charge of Alma Fick of Zeta, formerly of the Chicago Alliance, 
and the services took place at her home. Those who presented 
themselves for initiation were Emma B. Kinney, Estelle M. 
Riley, Lucy M. Lambdin, Grace Marshall, Mrs. Emma H. Bald- 
win, Mary S. Evans and Florence Lawler. Four others were 
shortly after enrolled, Agnes R. Powers, Caroline A. Powell, 
Sadie A. Fortney, and Stella M. Fortney. 

Nearly one hundred per cent of chapter membership is en- 
rolled and as their membership now exceeds fifty, the attend- 
ance at all meetings is large and courses- of study, lectures and 
plays are attempted, besides the social, business and fraternity 

A great deal of Social Settlement work has been done both 
by the individual members and by the Alliance as an organiz- 


ation and Zeta is also well represented in the Woman's Club, 
Press Club and many other city associations. 

Gamma Alliance 

Gamma Alumnae Alliance was organized June 8, 1898, at 
Gamma Chapter Hall, Adrian, Mich. Ella F. Tobias, of Gam- 
ma, and recently of the Chicago Alumnae Alliance, conducted the 
work and there were enrolled with her as first members, Eliza- 
beth Gibbs Palmer, Jean Stearns Kimball, enthusiastic delegates 
from the Third National Convention, Bertha Page Robertson, 
Bessie Leach Priddy, Dorothy E. Baker, Julia Myers Dewey, 
Abbie Wakefield Hamilton, Clara B. Hopkins and Mary M. 

Meetings are held the last Saturday in each month, at the 
homes. At least ninety-five per cent of Chapter membership has 
been enrolled. A feature of 1904's work was a reception to all 
fraternity women in the city. At least two social functions are 
given for the Chapter each year. Round Robin correspondence 
is maintained for the benefit of the out of town members. Once 
a year some meeting is made the occasion of an excursion to the 
home of some out of town member. 

Many of the members are active workers in the various city 

Sigma Alliance 

Sigma Alumnae Alliance was organized at Middletown, 
Conn., June 28, 1898, by Sarah Tucker Kurt, Lucy Osborne 
Searle and Mary A. McKay. Besides these three, the follow- 
ing were initiated at organization : Frances L. Weeks, Isabelle J. 
Church, Anna J. Kellog, Elizabeth H. Rogers, May A. Adams, 
Carrie T. Brown, M. Grace Brunell, Elizabeth C. Stevens, El- 
eanor Newell, and Isabelle M. Walbridge. 

About ninety per cent of Chapter membership is enrolled. 
Many re-unions are undertaken. Besides fraternity work, this 
Alliance has been devoting part of its energies to New York 
Social Settlement work. The interest of their out of town 
members is held by a very elaborate and effective system of 
Round Robin letters. Their full official meetings are in Janu- 
ary and June each year. 


Omicron Alliance 

Omicron Alumnae Alliance was organized at Syracuse, N. 
Y., Oct. 27, 1900, at the home of Evelyn F. Allen, by the follow- 
ing Omicron girls : Clara Johnson Champlin, Evelyn F. Allen, 
Daisy Boon Phillips, Anna Hollis, Alberta E. Perry, Josephine 
Horn Brown, and Ruth Ward. Seventy-five per cent of the 
Chapter membership is enrolled. Meetings are held the first 
Thursday evening of each month and are largely of a social 

This Alliance has been working on and nearly completed 
elaborate initiation paraphernalia for presentation to the Active 

Theta Alliance 

Theta Alumnae Alliance was organized May 18, 1901, by Dr. 
Caroline Edgar Erdmann, at her home in Minneapolis. Meet- 
ings are held every two months and news from absent members 
is given a prominent place in the program. Sixty-five per cent 
of Chapter membership has been enrolled. 

This Alliance reports as members, four professional women, 
three at home girls, eight high school teachers and fourteen mar- 
ried women. Some of the individual members have been very 
active in Social Settlement work. 

Delta Alliance 

Delta Alumnae Alliance was organized at Indianola, la., 
Sept. 24, 1901,, by ex-members of Delta Chapter. The meetings 
are held the third Tuesday of each month and consist of business 
and literary or business and social sessions. To each social ses- 
sion four members of the Active Chapter are invited. Here, too. 
Chapter House work is a part of the activity. The Des Moines 
City group, which is gradually organizing, will have as a nu- 
cleus a large proportion of Delta Chapter alumnae. 

Eta Alliance 

Eta Alumnae Alliance was organized June, 1902, in Bur- 
lington, Vt., at the home of Mrs. G. S. Forbes. The members 
petitioning for charter were Annie Sherburne, Eva Jones, Helen 


Hendee, Hattie K. Forbes, Edith Smith Simpson, Addle I. Lee 
and Abbie Katherine Leonard. Meetings are held the first Sat- 
urday evening of each month and both musical and literary pro- 
grams are enjoyed as well as social hours. All but one Chapter 
graduate have joined the Alliance since its formation. 

Some philanthropic work is undertaken and the Alliance is 
joining with other college women in working for the formation 
of a local College Club. 

Various lectures have been given under their auspices. A 
printed calendar of their programs for each year is issued. 

Beta Alliance 

Beta Alumnae Alliance was organized at Canton, N. Y., 
June 23, 1903, by ex-members of Beta Chapter. Miss Anna Hol- 
lis of Omicron Alliance, had charge of the Third Degree Ritual 

This Alliance enrolls about twenty per cent of Chapter 
membership, largely the resident girls. They are actively at 
work on enlarging the fund for the Chapter House, as well as 
assisting in the furnishing of the same. 

Each Commencement Week sees a very enjoyable meeting, 
the re-union of the resident Alliance girls and the out of town 
Circle Degree members. 

Rho Alliance 

Rho Alliance was organized May, 14, 1904, in a class room 
of the Ely School, New York City. Mrs. Chamberlain (Carrie 
Beddoe), of Alpha, was the leading spirit in organization. Mrs. 
Effie Danforth McAfee, of Iota Circle Degree, conducted the 
initiation services. 

Rho Alliance was organized by eight Tri Delta Alumnae 
from several colleges : Carrie Beddoe Chamberlain, Alpha, Effie 
Danforth, Iota, Ella Tobias, Gamma, Marion Ball, Laura Se- 
guine, Mildred Robinson, Rho, Rose Scott, Epsilon, and Irene 
Lewis Bedell, Beta. At the June meeting, the following were 
initiated: Effie Danforth, Ella Tobias, Rose Scott, Irene Lewis 
Bedell, Mildred Robinson, Marion Ball, Sara Shelley, Harriet 
Werts, Anna Waring and Edith Appell. 

To the fourteen initiated at first, each vear has added the 


Rho Chapter graduates, making seventeen in all, at the close of 

The Alliance very much desires all Deltas in the vicinity to 
make themselves known and affiliate with them. Meetings third 
Saturday afternoon each month. Siprna Alumnae residents in 
New York City are frequent visitors at Rho Alliance meetings. 

A series of luncheons has been started this year and tf.jse 
attending report great pleasure to themselves and growing en- 
thusiasm for Tri Delta. 

Denver Alliance 

The Denver Alliance was formed May 11, 1905, at Denver, 
Colorado, and was composed at first of one representative each 
of Alpha, Epsilon, Upsilon, and Kappa, and two of Delta. Six 
more members have joined since its organization. 

A recent letter says : "If all Alliances are as successful as 
ours, then are they all greater even than the Active Chapters — 
yea, each as great as the fraternity itself." From this quotation, 
it will be seen how strong an organization, lone representatives 
of widely separated Chapters have been able to form. Most en- 
thusiastic reports of the meetings have been received and with 
true western hospitality they are waiting and watching to wel- 
come each Tri Delta who journeys westward. 

The regular roll call of the Denver Alliance for 1905-6 
was Frances Bayley Packard, Alpha ; Leonora Hedendahl, Epsi- 
lon ; Sallie Fisher Sweet and Daisy Thomas, Upsilon ; Maud 
Hazlett, Kappa; Fern Abbott Richardson, Kappa; Persis 
Heaton and Lillian Newland, Delta, and Annie Lilley, Eta. 
Others from Epsilon, Pi, Upsilon and Mu have met with them at 
various times. Picnics in the park, breakfasts and thimble part- 
ies have alternated with meetings spent in the study of fratern- 
ity topics. 

Los Angeles Alliance 

The Los Angeles Alliance was formed at Los Angeles, Cal- 
ifornia, Oct., 1905, by graduates and ex-members of Pi Chapter 
and members of other Chapters, as follows: Lillian McLaugh- 
/in, Mable Worden Porter, Ethel Egan West, Martha 
Stone Hurd, all of Epsilon, Louise Johnston, K. Courtenay 


Johnston, Florence Dodge, Eleanor Hammack, all of Pi, Georgia 
Suber Bertram, Iota, Jeannette Smith, Delta and Beulah 
Wright, Lambda-Upsilon. 

The meetings are mostly social and are called at such times 
as meet the convenience of the greatest number. 

At Christmas and in June, formal events are given. 

Mu Alliance 

Mu Alliance was formed at Madison, Wis., Dec. 2, 1906, at 
the home of Jessie Nelson Swanson, at the time when the Visit- 
ing Delegate was inspecting Mu Chapter. 

Monthly meetings were tried at first but later it seemed 
better to vary these and to attempt to have some or all of the 
Alliance members present regularly at the Chapter House the 
first Monday evening of each month. 

Those initiated at the first meeting were Theo. B. Pickford, 
'03 ; Gertrude Stillman Sanborn, '99 ; Jessie Nelson Swanson, 
'98 ; Ada Westenhaver Weidman, '99 ; Florence Allen, '00 ; Ruby 
Peck, '04. and Mary Egan, '04; Ethel Redfield Hobbins, '04; 
has since joined. 

While the meetings have been very informal in nature, they 
are nevertheless very earnest, as the Alliance is taking an active 
part in raising funds for the building of a Chapter House for Mu 

Nu Alliance 

The organization of Nu Alliance was accompanied with 
something more than the usual ceremonies, as on March 29, 
1906, was held a grand reunion of Nu Chapter girls, preparatory 
to the formation of the Alliance on March 30. This day was 
chosen, as it was Chapter Founding Day. 

Former Grand President, Agnes Powers Dunning, of Zeta, 
came to conduct the initiation service and the following girls 
were received: Ethel Herrick Thompson, Mary Joyce Bush, 
Edith Rees, Nan Cannon, Edna Armstrong, Margaret Reeb, 
Olive Shurtz, Frances Peters Bierman, Mima Weaver, Sue Gor- 
man, Fannie Rockwell, Edith Phipps Wood, Florence Held- 
meyer, Blanche Skiles and Helen Mills. 

The service was held at Mrs. Thompson's home, 167 W. 


10th Ave. A banquet at the Ohio Club followed the initiation 
and on Saturday, March 31, another party was given in honor of 
the three Zeta guests, Mrs. Dunning and Lill Stevens, of Zeta 
Alliance, and Mary Latta, of Zeta Active. Six were initiated 

Besides their own business and social sessions, held the last 
Saturday of each month, this Alliance has decided to hold four 
joint meetings a year with the active Chapter. 

Kappa Alliance 

Kappa Alliance was organized, in thought at least, on May 
19, 1906, for on that day a group of Kappa Chapter alumnae held 
a meeting and decided upon organization, calling the first formal 
meeting for initiation for the first Friday in June. Twelve resi- 
dent alumnae of Lincoln were ready for the first initiation, more 
joining afterward. Daisy F. Bonnell and Bertha Du Teil, had 
been initiated at Boston by Alpha Alliance and they conducted 
the services, initiating Ellen H. Frankish, Anna L. Vore, Mamie 
Miller, Sophia W. Koehler, Edna M. Gund, Winifred Bonnell, 
Maude Brush, Pearl Powers Fee, Rae Challis, Lynn Brush, 
Katherine Lumry, Alma Vandeveer and Pauline Whitcomb, 
Meetings are held the first Friday of each month. The Alliance 
is planning with the Chapter for the entertaining of the Eighth 
National Convention, 1908. 

Pi Alliance 

Perhaps to say Pi Alliance is somewhat premature as these 
very modest Tri Deltas only call themselves, the Pi Alumnae 
Association of Berkeley, California. In a 1905 letter they say: 
"The object of this Association is to better keep in touch with 
the Active Chapter, aid it in every way we can and after three or 
four years, when more classes have graduated, form a regular 
Alliance. The President and Secretary of this Association send 
to all girls not in college a long, interesting letter at least once a 
month, full of fraternity news. We find the plan a great success 
and shall soon be asking for the Circle Degree." 

Upsilon Alliance 

Upsilon Alumnae Alliance is under formation and promises 


to be very strong as in addition to the Upsilon girls locally resi- 
dent, many other chapters have Chicago representatives, a part 
of whom were prominent in the Chicago Alumnae Alliance. 

Des Moines, Iowa, has a group of girls meeting regularly 
and nearly ready for the Circle Degree. 

Spokane, Washington, will soon add its name to the Alli- 
ance roll as plans are nearly matured there for a regular organi- 


Thanksgiving, 1906, was the eighteenth birthday of Delta 
Delta Delta. For that time there has been recorded the installa- 
tion of twenty-four Chapters, but one of which has been discon- 
tinued. One other charter was granted but could scarcely have 
been called established, the one at Ames (Iowa State College), 
granted just before the faculty anti-fraternity mandate. 

Of the twenty-three Active Chapters, all report prosperity. 
Ten are located in state universities, eight in well endowed and 
recognized universities, the remaining five in old colleges of good 
collegiate rank wher.e unusual zeal for the work is constantly 

Of the twenty-three Chapters, seven are at present success- 
fully maintaining Chapter houses, Beta, Kappa, Lambda, Omi- 
cron, Mu, Pi and Phi. Delta and Eta have each had a Chapter 
house when the number of out of town members warranted it. 
Iota always occupied a house. Alpha, Gamma, Theta, Sigma, 
Delta plans to have a house again next year. Upsilon, 
Xi, Rho, Psi, Alpha Xi and Eta have well furnished 
Chapter halls for their meetings. Such is the custom of their 
rival sororities. Most of these have maintained these halls from 
the first year of their history. Chi anticipates having a Chapter 
hall soon, Tau meets in the woman's dormitory according to the 
rules of the college. The remaining three chapters, Zeta, Epsi- 
lon, and Nu meet in the homes of the members as is the custom 
of the sororities in their schools. 

Sixteen Alumnae Alliances have been formed, fourteen so 
situated as to be working in active co-operation with their 
Chapters. A half dozen other groups are in various stages of 

The general fraternity reports seven National Conventions, 
with an attendance of 175 at the last one,, five Alumnae Alliance 
sessions, three successful Province conventions in each of its three- 
Provinces, a fourth voluntary convention in Beta Province, and 
representation and co-operation in every inter-sorority conven- 
tion or conference. It also reports the establishment of a well 



organized Alumnae Alliance section and of systematized fraternity 
examinations, conducted annually since 1898. Charters, initiation 
certificates, cuts, seals, badges, flags, pennants and other para- 
phernalia have all received due attention. Ritual work for the 
three degrees, installation services and constitutions have re- 
ceived the attention of each convention. 

In publications, Delta Delta Delta stands easily first in ac- 
complishment for its age, as the fraternity is on the sixteenth vol- 
ume of the Trident, the second volume of the Triton and has 
issued five constitutions and nine directories, with a complete 
catalogue going to press. There was issued in November, 1905, 
a song book and early in 1907 is the publication of the history. 
The establishment this year of a comprehensive system of 
Chapter records and reports ensures for the next history issued 
unusual completeness and accuracy. A finance system has been 
devised for the purpose of defraying the expenses of the fratern- 
ity at large, productive of no deficits, and which, while it places 
no unfair burdens upon any Chapter, yet ensures representation 
to all at each convention. The income has been large enough to 
make possible steady advance in business methods. But one 
deficit has ever been shown in the biennial balances and that a 
small one. The magazine is more than self-supporting, provid- 
ing a small salary for the editor. 

Ninth in date of establishment and seventh in date of rec- 
ognition as a national sorority, Tri Delta now stands a close 
fourth in length of the active Chapter list with the average rank 
of the schools in that list second to none. It was the first Greek 
letter society to make provisions in its original constitution and 
Ritual work for an Alumnae Alliance Section, doing so upon 
organization (1888). It was the fourth to establish an Alumnae 
Chapter or Alliance (1892), maintaining those established con- 
tinuously and it now ranks third in number of such organizations. 
But one Alliance has ever suspended its sessions and that is now 
revived. There has been a loss of but one Chapter, Iota, that one 
having been installed in earlier days with too little investigation 
of local conditions. 

From two solitary seniors, far away on the Atlantic coast, 
for an Alpha Chapter of a new sorority, on Nov. 28, 1888, 
there has been an advance to an organization consisting of 
twenty- three chapters located in north and south and east and 


west, all joining in the celebration of Founders' Day, Novem- 
ber, 1906. 

With a loyalty pledged by single, double and triple rites, 
over fifteen hundred initiates now answe • to the national roll call

Explanation : This comparison of relative growth in the first six- 
teen years after founding must of course take into account something 
of the differences in the possibility of the periods during which the 
growth took place, and if one of the last sixteen years in the history of 
each were made there would still be differences of opportunity to equalize.
