This Biographical Catalogue was projected both to satisfy a desire 
which has existed for many years among members of the Fraternity and 
to commemorate the semicentennial of Zeta Psi, the celebration of which 
occurred on April 23 and 24, 1897. The first step was taken in accord- 
ance with the action of the convention held in Boston, under the auspices 
of the New England Association, on December 28 and 29, 1892, when Bro. 
William Platt Pepper, Sigma '57, then Phi Alpha, appointed a committee 
of three to publish, preliminary to the catalogue, a Zeta Psi Directory, 
which was issued within one year, and which contained the names and 
addresses of all members of the Fraternity with alphabetical and geo- 
graphical indexes. Early in 1894 a copy of this directory was mailed to 
every member whose address was known, together with a circular, ex- 
plaining the plan and scope of the catalogue, and a biographical blank 
which the committee requested each one to fill out and return promptly 
to the secretary. It was hoped that members of the Fraternity would 
immediately respond to this request so that the data thus furnished could 
be classified and the catalogue published by 1897. Many replied at once 
and have cordially supported the enterprise but the delays and forgetful- 
ness of others, in addition to augmenting the amount and the cost of the 
work, have caused the postponement of publication until 1899. 

The committee are much indebted for information to the officers of 
colleges where chapters are now inactive, viz: Princeton, Harvard, Dick- 
inson, Dartmouth, Union, Amherst, Rensselaer, Pennsylvania College 
and Syracuse; and to Prof. Libbey for pictures of Princeton buildings; 
they acknowledge their obligation in various ways during the progress 
of the work to many brothers who have rendered valuable assistance and 
suggestions without which this Catalogue could not have been made 
what it is, to Brothers W. H. Carter, G. S. Woodhull, E. J. Peck, J. H. 
Hopkins, "W. H. McElroy, L. S. Pilcher,H. T. Thomas, C. H. Tillinghaste, 
C. B. Everson, J. Boyd, F. H. Culver, A. Buchman, C. W. Wood, W. G. Eliot, 
J. Somers Smith, F. R. Drake, W. E. Burritt, K. Cameron, J. Eyerman, 
W. J. Battle, W. A. Weed, D. M. Bangs, G. C. King, W. R. Steiner, H. 
C. Griffiths, H. V. D. Waldron, T. I. Chatfield, F. C. Mebane, J. M. 
Phelan, H. W. Dunn, F. W. Alden, O. B. Wight, L. L. Reford, to Chapter 
Committees and to many others. They have consulted old Zeta Psi letters, 
documents printed and manuscript, minutes, etc., college catalogues, 
annuals, class and alumni reports, etc., city directories, church books, 
Board of Health records, etc. ; they have communicated with postmasters, 
curators of cemeteries, surrogates, relatives and friends of deceased or 
missing brothers, custodians of army and navy records, and others; they 
have also made use of all the previous catalogues which are mentioned in 
the publications of the Fraternity. Bro. William A. Hoe, Jr., Phi '88, who 
was the second member of this committee until his death in 1897, did 
much work on the directory of 1893 and not a little on the present cata- 
logue. Much lamented Bro. Max Schwerin, while in California battling 
against disease, collected a large amount of biographical material which 
has been introduced into biography and history. 

Notwithstanding the effort by a system of abbreviations which is 
explained elsewhere, to bring the work within reasonable limits as to 
size, the number of pages exceeds by at least 25 per cent, the largest 
estimate. The committee have endeavored to introduce an historical 
sketch of and photo-engravings relating to every chapter, active and in- 
active, and biographies of all the members living or deceased. The 
general plan of the illustrations is first, chapter houses and college 
buildings, then founders, charter members and present members. The 
committee have not accepted legends and current reports but have taken 


great pains to verify statements and dates pertaining to the history of 
the Fraternity and chapters and to the biographies. To Bro. Marshall 
S. Brown, Epsilon '92, who has written the "History of the Zeta Psi 
Fraternity, ' ' and to the authors of the several chapter histories, the com- 
mittee for themselves and for the Fraternity here acknowledge great 
obligation and express hearty thanks. 

The chapter histories, nearly every one of which contains a sketch 
of the college or university, add interest to the historical portion of the 
catalogue by the variety in narrative and style. In editing the histories 
it has been necessary sometimes to abbreviate them and occasionally to 
omit details which are of local interest. The general plan of the individual 
biography is: name, address, genealogy, preparatory and college course, 
degrees, academic and honorary, college offices and honors, Fraternity 
record, membership in organizations, learned societies, clubs, etc., 
military and naval service, domestic record, business career, offices held, 
honorary, political, etc., and (if dead) date and place of death. The 
name is classified alphabetically under the chapter and under the class 
of the university department with which the member was identified at 
the date of initiation. If the history and the biographies of a chapter 
are not so complete as they should be it is not from lack of repeated and 
urgent appeal on the part of this committee. Data received too late for 
classification are printed in the "addenda." 

The committee regret, notwithstanding their endeavors, that many 
biographies and data are incomplete or are altogether wanting, and 
that unavoidable errors exist, but they will be very grateful for further 
information, for corrections of errors, for the supply of missing data and 
particularly for additional facts in regard to the founders of Zeta Psi, 
Bros. J. B. Y. Sommers, W. H. Dayton and J. M. Skillman, especially 
if these be sent promptly to the secretary, either to be published in a 
supplement in the near future or to be used toward making the second 
biographical catalogue more nearly exact. Old documents, letters, 
committee reports, convention minutes and Zeta Psi memorabilia of any 
kind or description whatsoever, which may seem inconsequential and 
which might sooner or later be destroyed, are being collected and care- 
fully preserved in fireproof quarters. These will supply missing links 
in history and in biography and will be of great value and interest in 
the future to the members of Zeta Psi. This catalogue is not in any sense 
a commercial enterprise but it has been prepared and is published solely 
for the use and benefit of the Zeta Psi Fraternity. The undertaking 
has throughout been sustained and encouraged by the "Committee of 
Patriarchs." Considering that delays have been unavoidable, corre- 
spondence large and the work gigantic, the committee are confident that 
the Brothers will cordially receive this catalogue, with its defects, and 
will exercise broad charity toward the committee. 

If this first Zeta Psi Biographical Catalogue shall serve to give the 
members of the Fraternity an idea of the size, strength and influence of 
Zeta Psi, to revive the memories of the pleasantest associations and 
experiences of college days, to cement more firmly the close friend- 
ships formed in Tau Kappa Phi and to stimulate constant endeavor to 
make Zeta Psi a still more potent factor for the development of all that is 
good, pure and noble in character in the college and in the world, both 
in private and in public life if the catalogue serves to do these things 
then will the committee feel that their labors have been amply requited.

in which the first meetings of Zeta Psi 

were held 



Brother John B. Y. Sommers, the son of Rev. Dr. Charles G. and 
Sarah L. (Skelding) Sommers, was born on August 15, 1829, in New York 
City, his father being pastor of the South Baptist Church, at that time 
situated on Nassau Street. His home was at 82 Madison Street until he 
was twenty-three, when the family moved to the house at 17 St. Mark's 
Place, where he died on November 23, 1863. He was buried in the 
family plot in Greenwood Cemetery. He entered New York University in 
the fall of 1845, being then a little over sixteen years of age, and was 
graduated at the commencement in 1849. "The attractive graces which 
distinguished him made him one of the most popular students in college, 
and won for him many friends." Soon after having been graduated, 
Bro. Sommers entered as a student the law office of Kirkland & Birdseye. 
In 1854 he was admitted to the bar and shortly afterward was made a 
member of the firm which, by the retirement of Mr. Kirkland and the 
promotion of Mr. Birdseye to the bench, eventually became Sommers & 
Johnson. Bro. Sommers was married on October 5, 1859, to Miss Emma 
A. Heath, now Mrs. John L. Morris, residing at Ithaca, N. Y. Their 
two sons, Frederick Skelding and Henry Cantine Sommers, are resi- 
dents of New York City. 

Early in his course, perhaps while a freshman, certainly in his 
sophomore year, he conceived the plan of organizing a new fraternity 
qualification for membership in which should be good fellowship, good 
morals and fine personal qualities. He had to consider that there 
were already chapters of three strong fraternities in New York Uni- 
versit}* and chapters of these or similar fraternities in other colleges 
which might be regarded good fields in which to establish a new one, 
and that the authorities of some colleges absolutely prohibited uniting 
with fraternities under penalty of expulsion. Brother Sommers, nothing 
daunted by these conditions, enlisted with him in his new enterprise his 
intimate friend, William Henry Dayton, and his classmate, John M. 
Skillman. Dayton, on account of ill-health, went South and entered the 
University of North Carolina. These three young men discussed their 
plans at Sommers' home and by correspondence. Dayton was to form a 
colony in his college but his constantly increasing weakness and subse- 
quent death prevented the introduction of the new fraternity. This 
misfortune increased the difficulties which young Sommers encountered 
but with courage he and Skillman persisted in their plans, for it was 
said of Sommers, "In him were combined childlike simplicity and gen- 
tleness of character with the sternest inflexibility of purpose." The 
date of the formal establishment of Zeta Psi was June 1, 1847. Bro. 
William H. Carter, writing in 1897, says: "The brothers of to-day can 
form but little idea of the anxieties and difficulties which surrounded us. 
It must have been the charm of Jack Sommers' personal manner 
which induced me to join on November 6, 1847, for there had been only 
two initiations since the organization and there were but four members." 

As to active work in propagating the Fraternity, he took part in the 
establishment of the Zeta, Delta and Sigma Chapters. "Bro. Sommers 
is semper paratus and true to Zeta Psi," said Brother Rousse. He 
held the highest office in the chapter, and was secretary of the first con- 
vention at Williamstown in 1849 and president of the two conventions at 
Newburgh in 1850 and New Brunswick in 1851. His character and 
qualities of mind and heart, as well as his professional career, are best 
described by extracts from letters concerning him from those most 


intimate and from addresses delivered at the time of his death. One 
wrote, "I could fill much space in reference to his noble qualities, his 
great intellectual powers, his wonderful gifts of social adaptability, 
great kindness of heart, extremely refined nature and courtly manners. 
He was a true type of the old-school gentleman. * * * He was especially 
noted for his innate refinement and delicacy. Anything in the least 
coarse was absolutely repugnant to him." 

One Brother who knew him well and delivered at a Phi Chapter 
meeting the eulogy at the time of his death, remarks, "The one thing 
that I should say first about Bro. Sommers is that he was always, at all 
times and under all circumstances, a gentleman. * * * As long as 
he lived he took a great interest in the Zeta Psi Fraternity and no little 
pride in the success of the institution of which he was the chief founder. " 

Bro. Sommers was a prominent Mason. His affiliations at the time 
of his death were with Adelphic Lodge No. 348, Past Master; with 
Adelphic Chapter No. 158, Past High Priest; with Morton Commandery 
No. 4, Past Eminent Commander, and with New York Grand Lodge of 
Perfection No. 1, New York Council of Princes of Jerusalem, and Zeal 
and Constancy Chapter Rose Cross, subordinate to the Supreme Council 
for the Northern jurisdiction, whose Grand East is at Boston. 

The Grand Master of Masons in the State of New York wrote : 
"His fine intellect, his scholarly attainments, his professional ability, 
his courteous manners, his umblemished life and his zeal in every cause 
for intellectual and social advancement were elements of his character 
which endeared him to all who knew him and by his death I feel that 
I have lost a cherished friend, a wise and upright counsellor and an able 
and faithful deputy." In reporting his death to the Grand Lodge, he 
said, "He was of a singularly amiable disposition. Acquaintance with 
him was but the precursor of admiration for his noble qualities and 
of warm and lasting friendship for so true a man exemplary in all the 
relations of life, generous, gentle and altogether unselfish." 

Following are extracts from addresses made by prominent Masons: 

"Our deceased Brother was by profession a lawyer, one of the well- 
known firm of Sommers & Johnson, of this city. His professional inter- 
course with his brethren of the bar was marked by courtesy and 
urbanity and characterized by uprightness. * * * He was not actuated 
by a desire to do the best for his client at all hazards but to do the best 
that he could with a due regard to the rights and equitable interests of 
those who stood in an antagonistic position, thus showing a character- 
istic without which no man can be a great lawyer the love of justice. 
His mind had been carefully cultivated, but his excessive modesty veiled 
to some extent the richness of his intellect. * * * In his decease the 
Masonic Fraternity has met with a very great loss, and had he lived he 
would doubtless, and at a proper time, have received the highest honors 
that the craft could confer upon him." 

"Our late R. W. Brother, whose many virtues endeared him to the 
craft, and than whom none was more respected in every walk of life, 
had for some time previous to his death been an invalid. It was fondly 
hoped that a vo3 T age to Europe would prove beneficial and prolong his 
life for years of future usefulness and more extended Masonic honors for 
which his eminent qualifications so highly fitted him." 

The Phi Chapter of Zeta Psi attended the funeral of Bro. Sommers 
and at a meeting held subsequently adopted this minute: 

"The whole Fraternity of Zeta Psi is called upon to mourn the un- 
timely decease of Bro. J. B. Yates Sommers, the honored and respected 
founder of our order which he continued to love and adorn to the day of 
his death. His own generous disposition and the debt of gratitude we 
owe to him as one of those who instituted the pure and noble principles 
Zeta Psi have made his memory sacred to the heart of every brother. 

"While bowing in humble submission to the decree of Infinite Love 
and Wisdom we deeply mourn the sad providence which has deprived 


us of this revered patriarch of our Fraternity. While grieving for our 
own loss we tender our heartfelt sympathies to that other circle to which 
our departed Brother was bound by the fondest of earthly ties. As a faint 
expression of our deep regret we will observe the ritual of mourning, 
drape our hall and shroud our badges in the usual manner and request 
all our sister chapters to unite with us in this tribute of respect. 

"Resolved, That a copy of this Minute be sent to the family of our 
Brother, to the Grand Chapter and to the several Chapters of the Fra- 

E. P. SPRAGUE, V Committee. 
"Nsw YORK UNIVERSITY, December 2, 1863." 

The picture of Bro. Sommers in this book is reproduced from an 
india-ink photograph taken by Fredricks, New York, in 1859, which 
was presented by Bro. Richard S. Amerman, '50, to the Phi Chapter 
on May 3, 1894, at a meeting held, by permission of the Chancellor, in 
the Council Room of the old New York University Building, immediately 
before it was torn down. The picture of his home in Madison Street 
was taken by Bro. H. H. Watson, Phi, 1900. 

Although Bro. J. B. Y. Sommers died when he was a few months 
over thirty-four years old he had lived long enough to see his ideals 
realized and Zeta Psi well established with sixteen nourishing chap- 
ters, already holding front rank in as many of the leading colleges. 
"He builded better than he knew." 


One of the two whom Bro. J. B. Y. Sommers associated with himself 
in establishing the Zeta Psi Fraternity was Bro. William Henry Day- 
ton. He died on August 17, 1847, and before any accessions were made 
to the chapter. It is necessary to make up this sketch from the minutes 
of the Phi Chapter, which alone contain all that is definitely known 
regarding Bro. Dayton. The items are quoted in the order of sequence. 

The first item is an extract from the first recorded minutes of the 
Phi Chapter, of a meeting held September 15, 1847, at 82 Madison Street, 
Bros. John M. Skillman, as President, and J. B. Y. Sommers, as Sec- 
retary, being present as the only two members of the Fraternity. 

''The chapter having received notice of the death of our late Brother, 
William Henry Dayton, of North Carolina, the motion was made, 
seconded and adopted that the chapter wear crape for the space of 
fifteen days from the first Monday in November, 1847. ' ' 

The second item is what Bro. John M. Skillman said in his address 
delivered on December 18, 1847, in the Phi Chapter, at the close 
of his term of office. "Bro. Dayton was born in this city in the year 
1827. When he was at the age of fifteen, business compelled his father 
to remove the family to Boston, where they have since resided. He went 
rapidly through a course of study preparatory to entering college with 
great creditto himself. His health began to fail him and his physicians 
advised his going South. Shortly after he entered the University of North 
Carolina, at Chapel Hill, of which his uncle was the honored and respected 
President. During his Freshman year he showed his superiority in 
intellectual pursuit by gaining and maintaining a high standing in his 
class but his excessive zeal and diligence brought on illness and he 
was compelled to cease entirely. The aid of the best physicians was 
called, but in vain, and his death ensued. His loss we shall never re- 
cover from. Death robbed us of one of our best and truest friends, and 
although we have taken the crape from our badges, we will wear it long 
in- our hearts." 


The third item is a portion of the eulogium which Bro. J. B. Y. 
Sommers, by appointment, delivered at a meeting of the Phi Chapter, on 
May 23, 1848. "I speak of Bro. Dayton, a young man of rare excellence 
and promise, whose meek, devout and consistent course adorned the 
faith he for so many years professed. The influence he exerted and 
the recollections he has left in the hearts of those who knew him will form 
a better and more enduring memorial than any it would be in our power 
to rear. His family weep for an affectionate son and brother, the church 
laments a beloved member in the meek lustre of whose graces they had re- 
joiced, a large circle of kindred and friends (among whom he delighted 
to consider his Zeta Psi brethren) unite in deploring the untimely 
death of one universally esteemed and beloved. Our Brother was a 
son of Thomas Dayton, Esq., formerly a resident of this city but 
who for some years past has resided in Boston. At an early age he showed 
promise of great intellect and steadfast endurance, so much so as to 
induce his father to give him a college education. After having been 
pronounced eligible for admission into one of our Eastern colleges, 
his physician suddenly announced the startling fact that consumption 
had set its fatal signet on his brow. He passed through the freshman 
year at the University of North Carolina, whither the advice of his 
physicians had sent him, with honor to himself and the college, but he 
was arrested by the hand of death while returning from a visit to his 
family. His willingness to labor for others, his uniformity of character 
and disposition, meek lustre of a piety that neither blazed ostentatiously 
at one time nor wavered and sunk at another, but shone serenely and 
steadily on, made him deservedly the favorite of all who knew him. 
His last moments were as a child sinks into slumber pillowed on a 
mother's breast. Such was the peaceful dismissal of our brother. The 
silver cord was loosed as by the gentle untwining of its strands and 
the wheels of life stood at last motionless." 


The son of John and Catharine (Newberry) Skillman, Bro. John Moon 
Skillman was born at 74 Remsen Street, Brooklyn, N. Y. , on March 
29, 1831. After preparing for college in a private school in Brooklyn he 
entered New York University in the fall of 1845. As mentioned else- 
where, Bro. J. B. Y. Sommers interested him and Bro. W. H. Dayton in 
the establishment of the Zeta Psi Fraternity, of the first chapter of 
which he was the first presiding officer. 

He was graduated from the University in 1849 with the degree of 
A. B. After leaving college he was in the office of John B. Kitching & 
Co. for a while and then took a business position in the South. Before 
the breaking out of the Civil War he returned North and entered the 
naval service as pay clerk, from August 26, 1861, to October 15, 1862, on 
the U. S. S. "Potomac," and as acting assistant paymaster and cap- 
tain's clerk from November 14, 1862, to February 12, 1864, on U. S. S. 
"Bohio," and then on the U. S. S. "Meteor" until July 13, 1865, when 
he died in Mobile Bay. His body was buried in Greenwood Cemetery. 

In a letter concerning him his sister says: "He was much esteemed 
by his employers in the office which he first entered and was a favorite 
with all who knew him for his loving, kindly disposition, his great 
thoughtfulness for others and exceeding refinement of nature. He was 
a member of the First Dutch Church of Brooklyn and much interested in 
the Sunday School the members of which gave him a large bible at the 
time of his leaving home for service in the Union Navy." 



The third and fourth decades of this century were periods of won- 
derful development for the American Republic and its people. The 
entire country was surcharged with vitality and its abounding and in- 
tense life manifested itself in the marvellous conquest of the continent 
with civilization as its most important achievement. But great as this 
task was it did not absorb nor exhaust all the energies of the American 
people. Political parties took new form and the machinery of party 
government was developed. Religious sects multiplied and proselyted 
with intense zeal. New schools of medicine were founded and gained 
armies of followers who supported them with most partisan fervor. 
Social organizations were started in infinite variety and in great numbers. 
Every man with an idea immediately tried to give it concrete expres- 
sion in a practical form, by organization, and societies, whose basal 
principle was loyalty to the idea upon which they were founded, were 
started throughout the length and breadth of the land. But whether 
the purpose was to propagate a religious "ism," to teach a scientific 
truth or to advance a great moral reform, the machinery of organization 
was introduced and fidelity to the cause was demanded and received. 
It was not an accident that the great period of the organization of Ameri- 
can college fraternities was coincident with the movement just described. 
It was part and parcel of that movement and could not have succeeded 
as it did in any other period of our country's history. 

College men conceived the idea of the fraternity and proceeded to 
put it into practice with the energy and spirit characteristic of the age. 
Conditions were extremely favorable for the rapid extension of the fra- 
ternity idea and the outbreak of the Civil War found most of the stronger 
fraternities of the present day vigorous and flourishing. The fraternity 
system, thus thoroughly in keeping with the genius of the age, had 
become well established when John Bradt Yates Sommers entered the 
*University of the City of New York in the fall of 1845 as a member of 
the Freshman class. The son of a New York clergyman, the Rev. 
Charles G. Sommers, D. D., he was born in New York City, August 15, 
1829, and was hence barely sixteen years of age when he entered 
college. Three fraternities were in existence at New York University, 
but Sommers declined to cast his lot with any of them. 

Sommers, although of a quiet, refined nature, was one who naturally 
drew men toward him. Acquaintance revealed qualities of mind and 
heart which made his fellow-students desirous of his friendship. Unas- 
suming, but real powers of leadership made followers and supporters of 
the friends he won. Bro. George S. Woodhull, Phi '48, the first Zeta 
Psi to be graduated from college, and for many years the intimate 
friend of Sommers, wrote that "Bro. Sommers had a very pleasant 
address and attractive manner, and the art of attaching to himself his 
acquaintances till they became his strong personal friends." His cul- 
tured, gentlemanly bearing, his energy and force of character and his 
personal magnetism fitted him preeminently for the work which, 
although yet a boy not quite eighteen years of age, he was able to 
accomplish, a work to whose magnitude and permanence this bio- 
graphical catalogue bears convincing testimony. 

Intimately associated with Sommers in the founding of the Zeta Psi 
Fraternity was William Henry Dayton, who was born in New York City 
in 1827, the son of Thomas Dayton, Esq. When young Dayton was sixteen 
years of age his family moved to Boston where he completed his prepara- 
tion for college in the face of the discouragement of increasingly poor 

* Name changed on March 19, 1896, to New York University. 


health. His physician informed him that a course at a Northern 
college was an impossibility for him, and by the order of his physician 
he went South and entered the University of North Carolina in the fall 
of 1846, where he remained during his Freshman year. He returned 
North in the summer of 1847 for a visit to his family, and died of con- 
sumption, on the 17th of August, 1847, while on the return journey to 
Chapel Hill. 

Sommers and Dayton were warm friends and together they con- 
ceived the idea of a new college fraternity which was to start with two 
chapters, one at New York University and the other at the University of 
North Carolina. These two young men joined to themselves a third, 
John M. Skillman, and with him became the founders of the Fraternity. 
The exact date of this agreement of Sommers, Dayton and Skillman 
to found the Zeta Psi Fraternity has been a matter of much discussion. 
Down to 1883, the date 1847 seems to have been the accepted one for the 
3 r ear of foundation, but in 1883 the Grand Chapter Convention, on the 
report of Bro. Aubrey, Delta Alpha, and of a committee appointed to 
investigate the subject, voted to accept 1846 in place of 1847 as the 
true date of the founding of the Fraternity. Accordingly, 1846 was used 
until researches, undertaken in view of the approaching semicentennial 
of the fraternity, seemed to cast doubt upon the correctness of this 
position, and in a paper read before the semicentennial convention the 
author of this history maintained that June 1, 1847, was the correct date 
of the founding of the Zeta Psi Fraternity. 

Since 1897 two very valuable sources for the early history of the 
Fraternity have been found, although they had been missing for over a 
generation; these were the original pledge book and the original record 
of minutes of the Phi Chapter at New York University. In addition to 
these invaluable documents, many others, including early minutes of 
other chapters, chapter correspondence and letters of the early members, 
have been discovered by the Fraternity archivist, the Delta Alpha, and 
have thrown new light upon the disputed date of origin. 

Both June 1, 1846, and June 1, 1847, are given in different places in 
the original Phi Chapter book, containing the chapter lists, by Bro. Som- 
mers himself in his own handwriting and over his own signature as the 
dates of the initiation of Dayton, Skillman and himself. The very 
source which we might expect to be conclusive, being thus contradictory, 
we are obliged to look elsewhere for evidence. 

It was the practice of the active chapters in the first few years of the 
Fraternity's existence to send lists of their members to the other chapters. 
One of these lists in the archives of the Delta Chapter gives the date June 
1, 1846, but this list is the only one giving this date. Numerous lists are 
in existence, all of which, with the exception of the one cited above, give 
the date June 1, 1847, or simply 1847. One of these, dated March 24, 
1849, reads as follows : 

" The Alpha of New York to the Alpha of New Jersey, greeting: 

"In accordance with Article XIX. of By-Laws, I forward the fol- 
l ?f l lst f a11 P ersons admitted to the fellowship of our Fraternity in 
Alpha Chapter of New York from June 1, 1847, until March 24, 1849. 

" # * * * * * 


" Secretary." 

T T , hen ;f~ llows in a tabulated list the names of those admitted, with 

51, 1847, as the date given for the admission of the founders. One 

:h earlier than the date of the above letter, on February 22, 1849, Bro. 

5 himself sent a similar list to the Alpha Chapter of Massachu- 

tts signed by himself, giving June 1, 1847, as the date of his own 

itiation In the back of the original Phi Chapter minute book there 

i a list of the chapters of the Fraternity written, as the internal evidence 

indicates, in the year 1850, which gives 1847 as the date of founding of 


the Phi Chapter at New York University. The earliest catalogue of 
the Fraternity, published in 1859, gives the date of the installation of the 
Phi Chapter as 1847. There is in the archives of the Delta Chapter at 
New Brunswick, a letter, dated August 5, 1859, from Bro. Sommers to 
Bro. J. H. Hopkins, of the Delta Chapter, acknowledging the receipt of 
the catalogue and testifying to the correctness of the part relating to the 
Phi Chapter. Letters from Bros. Carter, Woodhull and Mott, all now 
living, all of whom joined the Fraternity during the year 1847-8, give as 
the recollections of these Brothers, that it was started in the college year 
1846-7, and Bro. Mott is quite positive that it was in the spring of 1847. 
This evidence is sufficiently conclusive to warrant the Fraternity in 
settling upon the year 1847 as the year of the foundation of Zeta Psi. 

The death of Bro. Dayton, while on his way to Chapel Hill, to 
continue as a Sophomore his course at the University of North Carolina, 
prevented the founding of a chapter of Zeta Psi at that University, and 
not until eleven years later did the idea of Bro. Dayton find fruition in 
the establishment of the Upsilon Chapter at Chapel Hill. 

The opening of New York University in September, 1847, found the 
two remaining Brothers full of hope and enthusiasm for their project, 
and in the first meeting of the year and the first meeting of which the 
minutes have been preserved, held September 15, 1847, at Bro. Sommers' 
home, 82 Madison Street, New York, new members were proposed and 
the Zeta Psi Fraternity was fairly started on its prosperous and hon- 
orable career. 

The name of the Fraternity and of the chapter at New York Univer- 
sity and the broad outline of organization, had been incorporated in a 
constitution adopted by the three original members in the spring of 1847. 
The minutes of the chapter meetings, which were held regularly after 
September 15, 1847, show great energy and remarkable success in complet- 
ing the organization and in adding new members. This success was due 
very largely to the rare qualities of personal popularity, genius for organ- 
ization and powers of leadership possessed by Bro. Sommers. The 
credit for placing the new Fraternity upon a sound basis, for laying down 
the lines of future growth and for defining the principles which were to 
actuate its members in their relation to each other and to the Fraternity, 
belongs to Bro. Sommers. Great praise for earnest and successful pioneer 
work for Zeta Psi is due Bro. Geo. S. Woodhull, of the class of 1848, the 
first Zeta Psi to be graduated from college, and to Bro. "Wm. H. Carter, 
'50, who was initiated several months before Bro. Woodhull, and hence 
has the distinction of being the oldest living member of the Fraternity. 

The Fraternity has never departed from the basal principles laid 
down by its founders. It has demanded character and culture as the 
first requisites for membership in Zeta Psi. Given character and cul- 
ture, good-fellowship has been preferred to mere scholarship, although 
the Fraternity has always recognized that without scholarship the de- 
sired standing of member and of chapter could not be maintained in the 
college. It has been the policy of the Fraternity, inaugurated by its 
founders, never to choose men as members solely on account of attain- 
ment in restricted spheres of college activity. Scholarship or athletic 
ability alone, although highly prized when possessed by men of char- 
acter and culture, were never sufficient qualifications for membership. 

Bro. Sommers in his valedictory address on the " Elements of a Good 
Society," delivered on retiring from the presidency of the Phi Chapter, 
April 15, 1848, said that there were two necessary elements in a good 
Fraternity, viz.: "An honorable reputation, a broad, and a self-respect- 
ing character among ourselves. Our reputation must be obtained among 
our fellow students in the University, and there it will depend on our 
standing as students and upon our individual characters. When either 
of these is wanting there is a defect which will hinder us from obtaining 
those whom we should most desire to call our Brothers, for no amount of 
genius can compensate for want of character. ' ' 


Zeta Psi is distinctly a social, not a literary organization, social 
in the broadest and best sense of the word. The aim of the Fraternity 
has been and is to develop the member as a social being-, through 
intimate relations with a limited number of congenial friends who are 
bound together in an organization where loyalty, truth, honor and fra- 
ternal affection are the guiding principles. To this end literary activity 
is encouraged as a means, never as an end in itself; to this end likewise 
all the varied activities of college and Fraternity life are supported. 
The Fraternity never loses sight of the fact that the man is more im- 
portant than the musician, the athlete or the scholar. 

Founded upon these principles, the chapter at New York University 
became by the close of its first year a strong factor in the Fraternity life 
of the college. The founder's idea of the Fraternity as an affiliated or- 
ganization found expression in the establishment of a chapter at Williams 
College in the spring of 1848. Henry Silas Hodges, a student in the class 
of 1849 at Williams College, was a friend of one of the members of Zeta 
Psi at New York University, Bro. Geo. S. Woodhull, and this connection 
was used to start a chapter of Zeta Psi at Williams. Hodges came to 
New York and was initiated May 11, 1848, as a member of the Zeta Psi 
Fraternity. A petition from Bro. Hodges and another who had formerly 
been a member of Zeta Psi at New York University, for the founding of a 
chapter at Williams College, was received and granted on May 20, 1848, 
and at a meeting of the parent chapter held May 23, 1848, the Alpha of 
Massachusetts was duly installed as the second chapter of the Zeta Psi 
Fraternity. William W. Allen, '49, Charles A. Stowell, '49, and Samuel 
B. Sumner, '49, were the first initiates and, together with Bro. Hodges, 
constituted the charter members of the Alpha of Massachusetts. This 
chapter, later known as the Zeta., flourished for a short time, but adverse 
conditions limited its life to four years, and on June 22, 1852, it gave up 
its charter, to be restored over twenty-nine years later, Nov. 21, 1881, 
to the new Zeta., whose continued prosperity amply justifies the reestab- 
lishment of a chapter at Williams. By June, 1852, when the old Zeta 
ceased to exist, the Fraternity had already grown so strong that the loss 
of its second chapter hardly affected its prosperity, and interfered very 
little, if any, with its continued and rapid development. 

Rutgers was the third college to obtain the honor of the installation 
of a chapter of Zeta Psi. Judson H. Hopkins, of the class of 1850, Rut- 
gers College, was a relative and a warm personal friend of Bro. Geo. S. 
Woodhull, of New York University, and was interested by him in the pro- 
ject of extending the Zeta Psi Fraternit3' to Rutgers College. Hopkins 
associated with himself John Hess, also of the class of 1850, who accom- 
panied him to New York, where on November 24, 1848, they were both 
initiated into the Fraternity as members of the Alpha of New York from 
Rutgers College. Two more Rutgers men, Cortlandt Van Wyck, '50, 
and a classmate were initiated in New York as members of the New 
York University Chapter. On January 15, 1849, a petition from the four 
Rutgers members was presented to the Alpha of New York requesting 
that a charter be granted to the petitioners for a chapter of Zeta Psi 
at Rutgers College. The petition having been approved by the Alpha of 
Massachusetts, the charter was granted. Ten days later, Bro. John 
Hess was sent to New York to receive the charter and at a meeting 
of the Alpha of New York, held January 25, 1849, the Alpha Chapter 
of New Jersey was duly installed, Bro. Hess serving as proxy for the 
Rutgers' petitioners. The Rutgers Chapter thus founded has had over 
half a century of unbroken history. The newly initiated members of 
Zeta Psi at Rutgers College were animated with the true spirit of mis- 
sionary endeavor for the Fraternity and Bro. Peter W. Rousse, '50, was 
for several years the self -constituted head of the ' ' College of the Propa- 
ganda" for Zeta Psi. 

The chapter at the college of New Jersey at Princeton was the first 
to bear the second letter of the Greek alphabet as the Beta of New Jersey. 


Jonathan Longstreet, '50, was selected to act as the originator of a 
chapter of Zeta Psi at Princeton. He was initiated as a member of the 
Rutgers Chapter on May 14, 1850, and immediately started to pledge 
men for the proposed chapter at Princeton. So successful was he that 
five men went with him to New Brunswick and were there, on June 3, 
1850, initiated into the fraternal bondsof Zeta Psi and withBro. Longstreet 
were installed as the Beta of New Jersey. The records and correspon- 
dence show that for the space of a quarter of a century the existence and 
organization of the chapter at Princeton were maintained in the face of 
much opposition and discouragement. The laws of the college against 
Greek-letter fraternities became so stringent that the continued existence 
of the chapter, even in secret, became unwise, and on account of faculty 
action making membership of the college and of a fraternity at Princeton 
absolutely incompatible, the chapter in December, 1875, disbanded as an 
affiliated member of the Zeta Psi Fraternity. The Grand Chapter, how- 
ever, was loath to surrender such a promising field, hoping that a reversal 
of the attitude of the college authorities might enable the Fraternity to 
continue at Princeton, but at the convention of the Grand Chapter, held in 
Syracuse, January, 1882, it was voted that the Omicron Chapter be honor- 
ably discontinued as an active chapter. This action was rescinded the 
following year, but the Philadelphia convention of 1892 finally withdrew 
the charter. 

The installation of a chapter at the University of Pennsylvania was 
due to the fact that two members of the class of 1852, Edward W. and 
Samuel E. Appleton, had prepared to enter Rutgers College, but had 
changed their plans and had entered the University of Pennsylvania. 
They continued the friendship formed in college preparation with boys 
who had entered Rutgers and had there become members of Zeta Psi. 
The brothers Appleton were induced to join the Fraternity and were 
initiated at New Brunswick, August, 1850, in time to return to Philadel- 
phia before college opened and pledge men to become members of a new 
chapter at the University of Pennsylvania. On September 4, 1850, Bro. 
J. B. Y. Sommers, Phi Alpha of the Fraternity, and Bro. P. W. Rousse, 
'50 (Alpha of New Jersey), installed the new chapter at Philadelphia as 
the Alpha of Pennsylvania, with the brothers Appleton and four other 
students, initiated the same evening, as charter members. The Sigma, 
as their chapter was later named, has for fifty years maintained un- 
interruptedly its existence and organization as the leading fraternity at 
the University of Pennsylvania. The semicentennial will be celebrated 
on March 9 and 10, 1900, the convention of the Grand Chapter. Zeta Psi 
is the oldest fraternity in continuous existence at the University. 

Waterville College, now Colby, was the second New England 
college to possess a chapter of Zeta Psi. Through the instrumentality 
of the Alpha of Massachusetts, a local society at Waterville received 
permission to enter the brotherhood of Zeta Psi, and on November 19, 
1850, Bros. E. J. Peck, Zeta '51, and J. S. Barry, Zeta '53, initiated 
fourteen men at Waterville and installed them as a chapter of Zeta Psi, 
the Alpha of Maine. For nearly fifty years the Alpha of Maine, or as 
it was later called, the Chi, has sent out into the world a succession of 
delegations which have ably represented the sterling manhood that con- 
stitutes the chief glory of Maine. The Chi will celebrate the semicen- 
tennial of its foundation on June 26, 1900, with a justifiable pride in 
its past achievements, and a conviction that the secure basis of its pres- 
ent prosperity guarantees continued success in the second half-century 
of its career. 

The Alpha of Maine, at Waterville, was the last chapter to be 
named under the old system. At the third Grand Chapter Convention, 
held at New Brunswick, August 6, 1851, the present system of desig- 
nating the chapters by letters of the Greek alphabet, irrespective of the 
States, was adopted. The Alpha of New York became the Phi, the 
Alpha of Massachusetts the Zeta, the Alpha and Beta of New Jersey 


the Delta and Omicron respectively, the Alpha of Pennsylvania the 
Sigma, and the Alpha of Maine the Chi. 

An attempt was made to start a chapter at the Theological Semi- 
nary at Alexandria, Virginia, evidently in the Fall of 1850, and although 
a charter was granted it as the Alpha of Virginia, the project was not 
a success and on April 2, 1851, the charter was resigned. Bros. Robert 
E. Randall, Sigma '53, and Wm. F. Rogers, Sigma '55, were appointed 
a committee to found a chapter at Dickinson College, Carlisle, Penn., 
and on the 5th of March, 1852, they successfully fulfilled their commis- 
sion by initiating fourteen men and installing them as the Alpha Chap- 
ter, which met adverse conditions, failed to conquer them and died in a 
little over two years. 

The Epsilon Chapter, at Brown University, was founded April 
21, 1852, through the instrumentality of Bros. E. W. Appleton, Sigma 
and Delta '52, and Peter W. Rousse, Delta '50, who superintended the 
foundation of the new chapter from Cambridge, where he was 
attending the Harvard Law School. John A. Gardiner, '52, was the 
leading spirit among the seven charter members, who, in spite of 
competition with five fraternities, already established at Brown, soon 
placed the chapter on a secure footing. The Epsilon Chapter grew and 
prospered until 1861, when the Civil War caused a period of temporary 
depression. The following quotation from the Grand Chapter minutes 
of the Convention held January 2, 1862, tells her glorious history : 
' ' Especial remark was made of the Epsilon, every active member of 
which, with one exception, abandoned his studies, on the first call of 
the President, and is at this moment in the Army of the Republic." 
A period of prosperity followed the close of the war, succeeded in its 
turn by one of adversity which, in 1876, brought to an end the life 
of the old Epsilon. Ten years later, April 17, 1886, the Epsilon was 
reestablished and speedily regained its old position as one of the 
principal fraternities at Brown and one of the leading chapters of 
Zeta Psi. 

Not satisfied with the honor of having established a chapter at 
Brown, Bro. Rousse received the requisite authority from the Fraternity 
and on July 12, 1852, installed the Rho Chapter at Harvard College. 
The Rho, after an honorable career, dating from 1852 to 1857, was 
suspended in the latter year and reestablished in 1865, was suspended 
again in 1867, and for the second time restored February 17, 1882. A 
period of great local prosperity followed, but the incompatability of the 
Harvard club system with the interests of the Fraternity at large caused 
the final withdrawal of the charter in December, 1892. 

The chapter at Dartmouth College, the old Psi, was honored in its 
founder, Nelson Dingley, Jr., later Governor of Maine and for many 
years Republican leader on the floor of the National House of Repre- 
sentatives as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. Bro. Ding- 
ley entered Waterville College with the class of 1855, and was there initi- 
ated into Zeta Psi. He, however, transferred his academic allegiance to 
Dartmouth College and was thus the means of introducing Zeta Psi at 
Hanover. The chapter, authorized by vote of the Grand Chapter, August 
19, 1853, was installed at Hanover, by four brothers from the Chi. on No- 
vember 19, 1853, in the old Dartmouth Hotel. The Dartmouth Chapter 
gave up its meetings in 1865, was started again in 1871, but in June, 1873, 
its charter was finally withdrawn. 

The Kappa Chapter, at Tufts, was instituted October 22, 1855, by 
members of the Rho Chapter. A slight irregularity in the initiation of the 
movement, due perhaps to excessive zeal on the part of the founders, was 
soon remedied and the Kappa has, during fort} 7 -five years, chosen for its 
members the best men enrolled as students of the "college on the hill." 

Rarely has the prosperity of an institution been so dependent upon 
the life of one man as was Union College upon the life and ability of its 
great president, Eliphalet Nott. He made Union, during the middle of 


this century, one of the greatest educational centres of the country. 
Union became a strong fraternitj' college and it was but natural 
that Zeta Psi should desire representation, although very strong com- 
petition would inevitably follow. On March 4, 1856, three brothers from 
the Chi, duly authorized by the Grand Chapter, initiated seven students 
at Schenectady, and installed them as charter members of the Theta 
Chapter at Union College. The chapter prospered until 1866, when the 
death of Dr. Nott, after a presidency of sixty -two years, dealt the college, 
and through it the chapter, a severe blow, from which the college with 
difficulty, and the chapter never, recovered. It was reported at the Grand 
Chapter Convention of 1868, that the chapter had ceased to exist, owing 
to the decline in the prosperity of the college and the consequent difficulty 
of obtaining good men. Notwithstanding this report, the minutes of the 
Theta Chapter show that an attempt was made to keep up the organiza- 
tion for several years more, the last member being graduated from 
college in 1874. 

A committee from the Sigma Chapter, consisting of William Platt 
Pepper, '57, and Henry Ashurst, '58, was authorized to start a new 
chapter of Zeta Psi at Lafayette College, and on October 2, 1857, four 
charter members were duly installed at Easton, Pa., as the Tau Chapter. 
The Tau, strong through the support of a body of enthusiastic alumni, 
many of whom live in Easton, has for over forty years borne aloft the 
white banner of the Fraternity, and at the Grand Chapter Conven- 
tion, held in Easton in 1898, gave conclusive evidence of present strength 
and prosperity. 

Brothers from the Epsilon were given permission to establish a 
chapter at Amherst College in 1858, but the conditions were not favorable, 
and a precarious existence was maintained for a year only. 

The University of North Carolina, in the decade preceding the Civil 
"War, was a large and prosperous institution, worthy in every way to be 
the home of a chapter of Zeta Psi. The Delta was instrumental in ob- 
taining a charter and establishing the Upsilon Chapter at Chapel Hill. 
James Graham McNab, '58, was sent North by a band of students at the 
University of North Carolina who wished to become a chapter of Zeta Psi, 
to obtain, if possible, a charter. Mr. McNab was initiated at the Delta 
Chapter and received full authority to establish a chapter at the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina, where on the 16th of January, 1858, the Upsilon 
Chapter was inaugurated. Zeta Psi prospered until the Civil War de- 
manded the services of faculty and students on the fighting line. The 
college was more fortunate than most Southern institutions and was 
enabled to maintain the shadow of an existence during the dark years 
which ensued. The Upsilon Chapter was also enabled to keep up its 
organization, and at the close of the war regained a good share of its 
earlier prosperity. The sad days of the reconstruction period proved 
more disastrous to this institution than had the war itself, and in 1868 
the University closed its doors, and the chapter necessarily became 
extinct. The attempt of the Reconstructionists to carry on affairs, al- 
though maintained for two years, was a failure. After an interval of 
about seven years, the doors of the old University were reopened under 
the old officers; but it was not until ten years later that the desire of 
the Southern members of Zeta Psi for a chapter at Chapel Hill was 
fulfilled. On March 12, 1885, enthusiastic Alumni, by authority of the 
Grand Chapter, restored the Upsilon to life and to a career of prosperity 
and usefulness which has continued unchecked up to the present time. 

The year 1858 was memorable in the history of the Fraternity, not 
only for the founding of the first chapter of Zeta Psi south of the Mason and 
Dixon line, but also owing to its preemption for the first time of territory 
in what was then the West, beyond the Appalachian range. Liberty E. 
Holden was the founder of the Xi Chapter at the University of Michigan. 
He completed the first two years of his college course at Waterville Col- 
lege, where he became a member of the Chi Chapter, and then entered 


the University of Michigan in the Fall of 1856 as a Junior. Holden in- 
duced several of his friends at the University of Michigan to form a local 
organization with the purpose ultimately of becoming a chapter of Zeta 
Psi. The necessary authority from the Fraternity was obtained through 
the Chi Chapter, and on June 21, 1858, the chapter was installed with a 
large initial membership. The Xi Chapter has experienced the vicissi- 
tudes of fortune to which all chapters are liable; prosperity has, how- 
ever, outrun adversity, and forty-two years of continuous existence, during 
which the chapter has maintained its position as a peer among the lead- 
ing fraternities at Ann Arbor, place the Xi high in the honor roll of the 
chapters of Zeta Psi. 

The fourth chapter in Pennsylvania, the old Eta, was founded at 
Pennsylvania College, Gettysburg, Pa., on the 13th of August, 1861, by 
a delegation from the Tau Chapter. There is an interesting entry in the 
Grand Chapter minutes of December, 1863, which records a resolution 
granting a new charter to the Eta Chapter in place of the one which was 
destroyed at the invasion of Gettysburg. The chapter lived through the 
Civil War and continued to initiate until 1870. A committee appointed 
by the Grand Chapter in 1873 found the chapter extinct and received 
the charter and records from their custodian. 

Two other chapters were established during the period of the Civil 
War, the Omega at the University of Chicago, November 5, 1864, by 
brothers from the Chi, Epsilon, Theta, Eta and Xi, and the Pi at the 
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute at Troy, N. Y. , January 31, 1865. The 
former shared the fortunes of the old Chicago University, and died in 
January, 1887; the latter, after an honorable career of twenty-eight 
years, owing largely to a decrease in the number of students at the 
Institute, voluntarily surrendered its charter, December 21, 1893. 

The oldest college in Maine did not receive a chapter of Zeta Psi 
until eighteen years after its younger sister, Waterville College. George 
L. Chandler was initiated into Zeta Psi as a student of the latter college 
in the class of 1868, but providentially for Zeta Psi, concluded to finish 
his college course at Bowdoin College. Through his earnest efforts a 
petition from the Chi Chapter, for authority to establish a chapter at 
Bowdoin, was presented to the Grand Chapter and granted December 27, 
1867. The Lambda, as the Bowdoin Chapter was called, was instituted 
by the initiation, on January 31, 1868, of six charter members, in addi- 
tion to Bro. Chandler. From 1868 to the present day, the Lambda Chap- 
ter has continuously maintained its position as one of the leading fra- 
ternities at Bowdoin, and has, like the Colby Chapter, given the best 
from among the sturdy sons of Maine to Zeta Psi. 

The suspension of the University of North Carolina in 1868 caused a 
number of its former students to enter the University of Virginia for the 
completion of their college course. Among them were five brothers 
from the Upsilon Chapter, who, on October 16, 1868, having received the 
necessary authority, initiated four men, and with them constituted the 
charter members of the Beta Chapter. The Beta Chapter was in sus- 
pension from 1882 to March 1, 1893, when, owing very largely to the en- 
thusiastic endeavors of Bro. R. T. W. Duke, Jr., Beta '73, the chapter 
was reorganized. Since its reorganization its numbers have not been 
large, but it has obtained good men, and at the present time is in a pros- 
perous condition. 

The auspicious conditions under which Cornell University was founded 
not only drew students from other colleges, but impressed fraternity men 
generally with the desirability of preempting the ground. Three active 
members of the Xi Chapter at the University of Michigan entered Cor- 
nell in the fall of 1868, when its doors were first opened for students, 
and almost immediately associated four other Cornell students with them- 
selves as petitioners for a charter from the Zeta Psi Fraternity. Their 
petition was granted by the Grand Chapter on December 30, 1868, and 
on January 1, 1869, the first initiation of the Psi, as the new chapter was 


called, took place. The Psi has maintained a prominent position at 
Cornell, and its elders have been very influential in the councils of the 
Fraternity. Its magnificent chapter house at Ithaca, completed in 1892, 
is one of the finest fraternity houses in America. 

A very important step in the extension of Zeta Psi was taken at the 
Philadelphia Convention of December, 1870, when authority for theestab- 
lishment of a chapter on the Pacific Coast was given to the Grand Offi- 
cers. Arthur B. Waring-, Phi '70, and Albert B. Carlton, Phi '72, were 
instrumental in founding the Iota Chapter, which, thus constituted by 
authority of the Grand Chapter, became Zeta Psi's representative be- 
yond the Rockies. Zeta Psi was the first of the national secret Greek- 
letter fraternities to establish a chapter on the Pacific Coast and 
naturally reaped a great advantage from this priority, which gave it a 
leading position that has been successfully maintained in the face of 
increasing competition. 

The fifth college in New York State to receive a Zeta Psi charter was 
Syracuse University, where, on June 14, 1875, seven students who had 
been, on June 11, initiated at the Psi Chapter, were installed as the 
Gamma Chapter of Zeta Psi, representatives from the Psi, which had 
been most active in the campaign for the new chapter and from the Xi, 
assisting. The Gamma had an existence of twelve 3'ears. Its very weak 
condition in January, 1887, justified the Grand Chapter in withdrawing 
its charter. 

The prosperity of our Canadian chapters and the high standing in 
the University and social worlds which their members sustain warrant 
us in considering March 27, 1879, as a very important date in the history 
of Zeta Psi, for on that day Zeta Psi first crossed the boundaries of the 
United States and made itself an international fraternity by establishing 
a chapter at the University of Toronto. The Xi has the honor of being 
the mother chapter of the Theta Xi ; nine members of the former, assisted 
by two from the Pi, under authority of the Grand Chapter, went to 
Toronto and initiated nine students of the University of Toronto and 
installed them as the Theta Xi Chapter of Zeta Psi. Zeta Psi was first 
at Toronto, as she had been on the Pacific Coast, and for thirteen years 
had the field all to herself. The best men at the University became 
Zetes and gave the chapter a prestige that has been of great value since 
the introduction of other fraternities brought in the element of rivalry for 
possession of the most desirable men. 

Columbia University always has a number of students from other 
colleges pursuing studies in her several departments. In 1879, Bro. 
Richard A. Anthony, Delta '81, found that besides himself there 
were brothers from four different chapters studying at Columbia. Un- 
der his leadership they petitioned for a chapter at Columbia. The 
petition, supported by a very large number of prominent members of 
Zeta Psi in New York City, was granted by the constitutional authori- 
ties, and on December 12, 1879, Bro. W. L. Otis, past Phi Alpha, pre- 
sided at the installation of the Columbia or Mu Chapter, a name which 
was changed two years later to the Alpha. The Alpha has maintained itself 
since 1879 in the face of the most severe competition from other strong 
fraternities. The removal of the University to the new site at Morning- 
side Heights has created a healthier college life, and the chapter hopes 
to share with the University in its new era of prosperity. 

In 1883 the Fraternity for the second time crossed into Canada, 
and on January 3d of that year, founded the Alpha Psi Chapter at 
University. Bro. D. J. G. Wishart, Theta Xi '83, after 
graduation at Toronto University, entered McGill University for his 
medical course, and with the assistance of another graduate of the 
University of Toronto, R. F. Ruttan, who was also in the Medical 
Department, selected seven other men, who, together with themselves, 
petitioned successfully for a charter from the Zeta Psi Fraternity. 
Bro. Henry Brock, Theta Xi '81, and Bro. A. B. Cameron, Theta Xi 


'83, installed the chapter January 3, 1883. The Alpha Psi was 
without a rival for fourteen years at McGill University, and has had a 
career of great prosperity. It ranks deservedly among the strong 
chapters of the Fraternity. The chapter has achieved the distinction of 
combining supremacy in scholarship with a leading position in the 
college athletic world. The very large number of winners of the highest 
scholastic distinctions and the numerous representation on the Faculty 
of McGill attest the former, while the extraordinary number who have 
held official positions in the athletic organizations and membership in 
the athletic teams proves the latter. 

The year following the founding of the chapter at McGill Uni- 
versity witnessed the establishment of the first Ohio Chapter at the 
Case School of Applied Science. Elders of the Xi and of other chapters 
residing in Cleveland interested themselves in introducing a chapter of 
Zeta Psi at the new technical school founded through the liberality of 
Leonard Case. A charter was granted to six undergraduates in 
October, 1889, and on November 27th four of them journeyed to Ann 
Arbor and were there initiated and installed as the Nu Chapter of the 
Zeta Psi Fraternity. The Nu Chapter has always kept its numbers 
small, but the presence in Cleveland of a large body of influential 
alumni of Zeta Psi is an element of strength which enables the chapter 
to maintain a high standard of qualification for membership and insures 
continued prosperity. 

The wisdom of entering Yale University, under the peculiar condi- 
tions of fraternity life existing there and with the well-known Yale con- 
servatism to contend against, was questioned by many earnest members 
of the Fraternity, but success has justified the establishment of Zeta 
Psi at New Haven. Bro. S. B. Sumner, Zeta '49, was deeply interested 
and was ably assisted by Bro. Walter G. Eliot, Alpha '78, in the en- 
deavor to obtain a charter. That having been secured on May 11, 1889, 
ten New Haven students were initiated at the Zeta Psi Club, in New 
York City, as the charter members of the Eta Chapter, Bro. A. H. Gal- 
latin, Phi '59, presiding. A chapter house was built in 1891, which in 
1899 was replaced by the present stately structure, whose architectural 
beauty and whose adaptability to the needs of the chapter make it one 
of the finest fraternity houses in the country. 

Zeta Psi added another to her long list of pioneer chapters in 1892 
by crossing the Rockies for a second time and placing a chapter at Palo 
Alto three months after Stanford University had opened its doors to stu- 
dents. The Iota Chapter at Berkeley was naturally desirous, shut off as it 
was very largely from fellowship with the Eastern chapters, of placing 
a branch of Zeta Psi at the new sister University of the Pacific slope, 
and, under the leadership of Bro. Edwin Mays, Iota '93, secured the con- 
sent of the Grand Chapter at Philadelphia January 9, 1892, when a 
charter was granted to the petitioners, a number of whom had already 
become members of the Fraternity at the Iota Chapter. The two Pacific 
chapters have proved a source of mutual strength, and the Mu has had 
an extremely creditable, although a short, history, and will unquestion- 
ably maintain at Palo Alto the same relative position which the Iota has 
secured at Berkeley. 

If perseverance deserves success the youngest chapter of the Fra- 
ternity merits the membership in Zeta Psi it so long coveted. An 
organization of students at the University of Minnesota was, for six 
long years, unremitting in its efforts to obtain a charter from Zeta Psi. 
The traditional and wise conservatism of the Grand Chapter and the diffi - 
cultiesof complyingwiththeexactingconditionsof admission, were finally 
overcome, and on August 26, 1899, ten men were initiated and installed 
as the Alpha Beta Chapter of the Zeta Psi Fraternity by a committee of 
Grand Officers consisting of Bros. Kenneth Cameron, Alpha Phi '87, 
Phi Alpha; Pomeroy Ladue, Xi '90, Alpha Sigma Alpha; Albert Buch- 
man, Psi '77, Gamma Alpha, and Israel C. Pierson, Phi '65, Delta 


Alpha, assisted by a large number of elders, resident in Minneapolis 
and St. Paul. A chapter house had already been purchased and the 
latest addition to the chapter roll of Zeta Psi begins its career under the 
most auspicious conditions. 

Local conditions very largely determine the peculiar form that chapter 
life takes at the several colleges, but the chapter house idea has been 
steadily gaining ground. Sixteen of the twenty-one active chapters have 
chapter houses; ten of these are owned by the fraternity and six are 
leased. The Eta Chapter, at Yale, conforms to the local custom and 
has no dormitories, while each of the other chapter houses is not only the 
home of the chapter but also the college home of a number, generally a 
majority, of the active members of the chapter. The chapters at Wil- 
liams, Rutgers, Pennsylvania, Tufts, North Carolina, Michigan, Cornell, 
California, Yale and Minnesota own their houses, while those at New 
York, Virginia, Toronto, Columbia, Case School and Stanford lease 
chapter houses. The other chapters lease suites of rooms for the general 
use of the chapter. 

Thus Zeta Psi has grown from the little band of founders to its pres- 
ent magnitude. The three have become about five thousand and fifty. 
The parent chapter at New York University has now associated with 
herself in filial and, at the same time, fraternal fellowship, like chap- 
ters from Maine to California and from the Canadas to the Carolinas. 
The history of the growth, which has been traced, shows that certain 
periods have been productive of greater external development than others 
and that dominating personalities have appeared from time to time to 
guide the progress and control the interests of the Fraternity. The first 
period may be said to extend from 1847 to 1852, a period during which 
the founders themselves retained an active interest and oversight in the 
affairs of the Fraternity. At the close of its first five years of life Zeta 
Psi had nine chapters in the older Eastern colleges. The surviving 
founder, Bro. Sommers, was ably supported by Bros. Geo. S. Woodhull, 
Phi '48, whose character, ability and zeal did much to make secure the 
foundation already laid. But it is Bro. Peter W. Rousse, Delta '50, to 
whom, after the founders themselves, the chief credit is due for the rapid 
extension of the Fraternity during this first period. 

The next period of marked growth was from 1855 to 1858, when six 
new chapters were started. The admission of chapters in the West and 
South in 1858 made the Fraternity a national and no longer a purely 
Eastern organization. During this period Bro. G. L. Bennett, Rho '54, 
was the most energetic leader in Zeta Psi activities, and the Fraternity 
owes much to the painstaking and laborious manner in which he devoted 
himself to its interests. 

The period of the Civil War was of necessity one during which little 
progress was made, the nation demanded its young manhood and Zeta 
Psi, composed of the flower of the youth of the country, gave and gave 
most liberally of its best for the defense of the Union. The loss of so 
many active members was a serious blow to the Fraternity, from which, 
however, it recovered with surprising ease, the later years of the war 
being a time of very considerable prosperity and activity. 

The majority of the members of the Fraternity were Unionists yet 
the Southern members, although shut off by the exigencies of war from 
all communication with their Northern brethren, were still regarded as 
members and it is a remarkable tribute to the strength of the bond which 
unites us, that in July, 1862, when war passions were at fever heat, when 
ecclesiastical and social organizations had divided North and South, the 
Grand Chapter of Zeta Psi, in convention assembled, could have passed 
and did pass the following resolutions presented by Bro. "W. H. Cooke, 
Phi '58. The first two resolutions evinced the loyalty of the Fraternity 
to the cause of the Republic, but the last resolution "refers particularly 
to the Southern members, and shows the enduring nature of Zeta Psi's 
fellowship : 


" Resolved, That we, the brethren of the Zeta Psi Fraternity, al- 
though recognizing' only the bond of our motto, T K 3>, yet viewing- the 
terrible calamity in which our country is involved, hail with pride that 
true patriotic spirit which has actuated our brethren in so nobly respond- 
ing to the call of our common Republic. God speed our noble brethren 
in their offering; brethren by the ties of country, brethren still more by 
the closer ties of our loved Fraternity. We honor them, but still more do 
they honor us. 

Resolved, That, while we rejoice over our living heroes, we can but 
mourn the loss of those who, falling in defense of established principles, 
have enrolled their names among the sainted heroes of the past. Gone, 
but not lost; silent, yet speaking continually to our hearts; dead, yet 

''Resolved, That while we may differ in political sentiment with 
those of our brethren who are courageously battling for principles which 
they deem right, no disaster shall separate them from the communion of 
Tau Kappa Phi." 

The Upsilon Chapter, at the University of North Carolina, was 
represented at the first Convention held after the close of the war in 
December, 1865, and its delegate was welcomed by the Grand Chapter 
with enthusiastic applause. 

The Fraternity shared with the country the prosperity which followed 
the end of the great civil strife. Conventions were well attended, chapters 
were active and chapter rolls were well filled, a number of new chapters 
were instituted and the faithful labors in the Grand Chapter of de- 
voted Brothers were fruitful of good results. The following Brothers, 
among others, contributed materially to the success of Zeta Psi during 
this period : Bros. A. H. Gallatin, Phi '59, Samuel Marsh, Phi and Theta 
'67, A. B. Carlton, Phi '72, W. H. Moore, Epsilon '67, and L. S. Pilcher, 
Xi '62. From 1869 to 1878, inclusive, only two chapters were added to 
the Fraternity, one at California in 1871, and one at Syracuse in 1875, 
not including an attempt to establish a chapter at Annapolis, in 1874, 
which was almost immediately given up owing to the hostility of the 

Again the Fraternity shared with the country the reaction succeeding 
post-bellum prosperity. Attendance at the Grand Chapter Convention 
fell off, and the growth of the Fraternity was checked for a few years. 
In the last half of the decade Zeta Psi recovered from this temporary de- 
pression much more rapidly than did the country at large. Attendance at 
the conventions greatly increased, and much valuable work in perfecting 
the central organization of the Fraternity was accomplished. During the 
first part of the eighth decade there was no dominating personality in 
the councils of the Fraternity, but from 1873, when as an undergraduate 
he attended a convention for the first time, to his lamented death in 1881, 
Bro. William L. Otis, Pi and Xi '74, was unceasing in his labors for 
Zeta Psi. During those years the history of the Grand Chapter is largely 
a history of Bro. Otis's work for the Fraternity. He gave himself to the 
task of strengthening the Fraternity and of advancing its interests with a 
zeal, an ability and a devotion of time that entitle him to a great debt of 
gratitude and place him in the very front rank of the benefactors of Zeta 
Psi. His untimely death was an irreparable loss to the Fraternity, whose 
service was his greatest pleasure. 

The extension of Zeta Psi to Canada in 1879, for the first time ad- 
mitting chapters outside the limits of the United States, was a most im- 
portant step in the growth of the Fraternity, followed, as it was, by the 
installation of a chapter at McGill University. It made the Fraternity, 
in reality, the Zeta Psi Fraternity of North America. During the ninth 
decade of this century, Charles B. Everson, Psi '78, was one of the most 
active and efficient workers in the Fraternity. His valuable and long- 
continued labors for the upbuilding of Zeta Psi place him among the 
foremost of its supporters. 


Since 1883, conservatism has been the rule governing the granting of 
charters to new chapters. Only four, not including reestablishments, 
have been issued in the last seventeen years at Case School in 1884; Yale 
in 1889; Stanford in 1892, and Minnesota in 1899. Far from being a period 
of stagnation, however, the last seventeen years have been years of re- 
markable prosperity. The Fraternity has been able as never before to 
command the services of a large number of prominent alumni in the 
task of administering the affairs of Zeta Psi. A most efficient central 
organization has been perfected in the "Standing Committee of Patri- 
archs," which was authorized at the Philadelphia Convention, held 
January, 1892. Probably no single action since the founding of the 
Fraternity has been fraught with so much of benefit to Zeta Psi as the 
organization of the Committee of Patriarchs. The remarkable prosper- 
ity of the Fraternity to-day is very largely due to its wise, consistent 
policy and to the devoted labors of its members, and especially those of 
the man who has been its chairman since 1892 Bro. I. C. Pierson, Phi 
'65. Bro. Pierson has given his time, his energy and his love in a re- 
markable degree to Zeta Psi, and it is probably safe to say that no 
member of the Fraternity since its foundation has bestowed upon it so 
much successful labor. The Fraternity also owes a debt of gratitude to 
its efficient treasurer, Bro. Albert Buchman, Psi '79, who for the past 
ten years has ably managed its financial interests. 

The affairs of the Fraternity at large for the first two years of its exist- 
ence were controlled by the three chapters through correspondence. This 
method, however, proved inefficient and unsatisfactory. The Alpha of New 
York (Phi), at a meeting held June 16, 1849, passed the following minute: 
"The chapter then adopted the call of the Alpha of Massachusetts for a 
convention of the Fraternity, to be held at "Williamstown, on the 14th of 
August next." Bro. J. B. Y. Somtners forwarded the action of the chap- 
ter on the next day to the Alpha of New Jersey (Delta) in a letter, in 
which he stated: " You are doubtless aware that the subject of a Con- 
vention has been agitated for some time among the chapters, the neces- 
sity for which is obvious. We have just received communications from 
the Alpha of Massachusetts requesting that a Convention be held at 
Williamstown on the 14th of August next, for the purpose of revising 
Constitution, By-Laws and Ceremonies." 

Pursuant to this call, the first Grand Chapter Conventionof the Zeta 
Psi Fraternity was held at Williamstown, Mass., on August 14 and 15, 
1849. Delegates were present from each of the three chapters. Bro. 
Woodhull, of the Alphaof New York, was elected President; Bro. Stowell, 
of the Alpha of Massachusetts, Vice-President, and Bro. Sommers, of 
the Alpha of New York, Secretary. It may be inferred from the absence 
of a treasurer from this list of officers that money had not as yet become 
an asset of the infant order. Three committees were appointed on Con- 
stitution and By-Laws, on Initiation and on Signs, Symbols and Cere- 

The second Convention was held at Newburgh, N. Y., August 22, 1850. 
Delegates were present from New York University, Williams and Rutgers. 
A charter was granted to the Alpha of Pennsylvania at the University 
of Pennsylvania and delegates in waiting were immediately admitted 
from that chapter. The most important work of this Convention was the 
adoption of a new Constitution of the Fraternity, which was presented 
as a report by the Committee on Constitution and By-Laws appointed at 
the first Convention, consisting of Bros. Rousse and Hess, of the Alpha 
of Xew Jersey, and Skillman, of the Alpha of New York. This Consti- 
tution, with a few amendments, continued in force until 1862, when the 
Convention held in Boston in December, 1862, adopted a general revision 
of the Constitution which had been prepared by Bros. Wm. H. Cooke, 
Phi '60, and J. F. Dripps, Phi '63. Amendments were passed from 
time to time, but for twenty-eight years the Constitution remained sub- 
stantially unchanged. A second general revision of the Constitution was 


adopted by the Grand Chapter at New York, January, 1890, and the fol- 
lowing 3^ear the same committee on the revision of the Constitution re- 
ported a new set of By-Laws, which were adopted after discussion and 
amendment. The work of this committee was most thorough and pains- 
taking, and remains to-day a monument to the wisdom and ability of the 
framers of our fundamental laws. 

The third convention was held at New Brunswick, N. J., with the 
Rutgers Chapter, August 6, 1851, after which, for four successive years, 
conventions were held respectively at Poughkeepsie, N. Y., Brooklyn, N. 
Y., Springfield, Mass., and Hartford, Conn. Of the first seven conven- 
tions, two only were held in University towns but, beginning with the 
session of 1856, the policy of the Grand Chapter has been to meet in 
University towns as the guest of the local chapter or chapters. The only 
exceptions to this rule have been the conventions in Cleveland in 1877, 
held, however, under the auspices of the Xi Chapter of the University 
of Michigan in conjunction with the Cleveland Alumni; in Chicago in 
1889, with the Northwestern Metropolitan Chapter; in Boston, in Decem- 
ber, 1892, as the guests of the New England Association, and several 
sessions held in New York, with the New York Alumni or the Committee 
of Patriarchs. 

The semicentennial session of the Grand Chapter of the Zeta Psi 
Fraternity, held in New York City, April 23 and 24, 1897, will long be 
remembered by every brother who attended, as the most notable and 
most successful function ever held under the auspices of Zeta Psi. The 
Committee of Patriarchs, assisted by a semicentennial committee of 
prominent elders from each chapter, carefully planned and carried 
out, with conspicuous success, the elaborate arrangements which made 
the convention a worthy celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the 
Fraternity. Representatives from twenty-four chapters signed the con- 
vention register and over three hundred members were in attendance. 
Bro. Wm. H. Carter, Phi '50, the oldest living Zete, was in attendance 
constantly throughout the session, as the only living member who 
had for the space of half a century worn the badge of Zeta Psi, and as 
the friend and associate of the founders, he brought home to the brothers 
present a realization of the venerable age, the dignity and the worth of 
the Fraternity. Bro. Geo. S. Woodhull, Phi '48, the first member of 
Zeta Psi to be graduated from college ; Bro. Geo. S. Mott, Phi '50, Bro. 
Judson H. Hopkins, Delta '50, Bro. John Hess, Delta '50, Bro. Ezra J. 
Peck, Zeta '51, and many other elders of the pioneer days were present to 
see the fruits of their labors of fifty years ago, and to realize that they 
had builded better than they knew. 

An informal complimentary dinner was given at the Hotel St. Denis, 
on the evening of the 23d, at which Bro. Francis Lawton, Epsilon 
'69, presided. Nearly three hundred were present and participated 
in one of the most enjoyable gatherings ever given by our honored 
Fraternity. The banquet was held at Delmoiiico's the following 
evening, with Bro. F. LeRoy Satterlee, Phi '66, Phi Alpha of the 
Fraternity, as the presiding officer, and Bro. Wm. H. McElroy, Theta 
'60, as toastmaster. Again nearly three hundred men testified by 
their presence to the loyalty which animates brothers in Tau Kappa 
Phi. Bro. Nelson Dingley, Jr., Chi '55, the illustrious statesman 
whose loss we have since been called upon to mourn, sat at the right of 
the president, and delivered one of the chief addresses of the evening. 
Bro. Charles H. Eaton, Kappa '74, one of New York's most gifted and 
eloquent divines, delivered the oration and well sustained his reputation 
as a brilliant orator, while Bro. Wm. H. McElroy, Theta '60, author 
and journalist, was the poet of the occasion and read a masterly pro- 
duction entitled "When this Old Pin was New," which was considered 
by those present to be the best occasional poem the}' had ever heard. 
Bros. Carter, Phi '50, Walker, Rho '55, J. W. Bennett, Phi '53, and 
other prominent elders also responded to toasts, and Bro. M. S. Brown, 


Epsilon '92, read an historical sketch of the founding of the Fraternity. 
The unqualified success of the Convention was but a reflection of the 
remarkable and, up to that time, unequaled prosperity of the Fraternity, 
and was also a convincing proof of Zeta Psi's position as one of the lead- 
ers in the American fraternity world. 

Twice only in the half century of its history has the Grand Chapter 
failed to meet in a general convention. The failure of the responsible 
officers to send out the proper notices for the Convention summoned to 
meet at Philadelphia, July 22, 1857, resulted in the failure of a sufficient 
number of delegates to attend in order to constitute a quorum, and a 
special session of Grand Officers was held in New York City, a month 
later, to transact the necessary business. The second failure was due 
to the Civil War. The Grand Chapter was to have convened in the sum- 
mer of 1861, for the first time south of the Mason and Dixon line, with 
the Upsilon Chapter at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, 
North Carolina. The war so absorbed the attention and energies of all 
that no attempt was made to find another host for the Convention. 

New York has the distinction of having entertained the Grand Chap- 
ter at twelve regular sessions, besides more than that number of special 
sessions of the Convention or of its Grand Chapter Officers. The Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania has been the host of the Fraternity six times, 
and Boston has been the place of meeting four times. Providence, New 
Brunswick and Easton have each had the honor three times, and Ithaca, 
Toronto and Montreal twice. Regular conventions have been held once 
in each of the following cities : Williamstown, Newburgh, Poughkeep- 
sie, Brooklyn, Springfield, Hartford, Waterville, Hanover, Schenectady, 
Cleveland, Troy and Syracuse. 

The Grand Chapter of the Fraternity has, since 1859, regularly 
published the Minutes of each Annual Convention. The copies of un- 
printed minutes of the earlier conventions have fortunately been pre- 
served, with the exception of those of 1851, but their substance has been 
gathered from correspondence of the time, so that the Fraternity has in 
its archives, thanks to the unremitting labors of the Delta Alpha, a 
practically complete official record of its history. The publications of 
the Fraternity, in addition to its minutes, have been bulletins, song- 
books, a Zeta Psi Monthly, a Zeta Psi Quarterly, directories and cata- 

The value of a Zeta Psi songbook was early recognized and many 
efforts were made to collect and preserve the Fraternity songs. As early 
as 1855, the Grand Chapter appointed a committee for this purpose. 
Similar committees were appointed from time to time but failed to do more 
than make partial collections of Zeta Psi songs until, in 1869, a com- 
mittee from the Psi Chapter at Cornell was given power to publish a 
songbook for the Fraternity. In 1871, this committee, of which Bro. J. M. 
Dodge, '71, was chairman, printed and published the first book of Zeta 
Psi songs without music. The '71 book, notwithstanding repeated 
attempts to publish a new collection, remained the only one until Bro. 
Bolles, Kappa '88, chairman of a songbook committee appointed by the 
Grand Chapter in 1889, succeeded in publishing, in 1891, the second Zeta 
Psi songbook, words and music. One of the features of the semicenten- 
nial year was the publication by a committee, consisting of Bro. Israel 
C. Pierson, Phi '65, and Bro. Thomas I. Chatfield, Eta '93, of a Zeta Psi 
songbook with words and music, the former exclusively of Zeta Psi 
authorship. This book was in every way worthy of the Fraternity whose 
badge ornaments the cover, the beautiful design for which and the first 
page was drawn by Bro. F. T. Clayton, Phi '96. 

The Grand Chapter at the Syracuse Convention, 1882, voted to pub- 
lish a monthly journal devoted to the interests of Zeta Psi. The Zeta 
Psi Monthly was first issued in November, 1882, at Toronto, Canada, 
under the editorship of Bro. Henry Brock, Theta Xi '81, who as- 
sumed not only the editorial but also the financial responsibility of the 


enterprise. Three numbers were published by Bro. Brock, who then 
became convinced that Toronto was too far from the centre of Zeta Psi in- 
terests and activities and so resigned the editorship in favor of Bro. J. Bruen 
Miller, Delta '79, who accepted the office and the responsibility of pub- 
lication. Bro. Miller continued as editor of the monthly and of its suc- 
cessor, the Zeta Psi Quarterly, until March, 1885. Bro. Walter G. Eliot, 
Alpha '78, followed him as ad interim editor, and Bro. Ruford Franklin, 
Alpha '86, was chosen as his successor and served as editor until the 
discontinuance of the publication in 1886. The monthly was a private 
enterprise, although recognized as the official organ of the Fraternity. 
The quarterly was published by the Zeta Psi Publishing- Co., a stock 
company whose shares were subscribed for by members of the Fraternity. 
Bro. J. Bruen Miller and his associates conferred a great benefit upon 
the Fraternity by their arduous and unremunerative labors in their suc- 
cessful endeavors to give Zeta Psi a journal worthy of its position in the 
college fraternity world. 

The Fraternity has from time to time published catalogues and direc- 
tories of its members. The first attempt to publish a catalogue was 
made in 1853, the Convention of that year voting to publish a catalogue 
within a year. Two years passed and no catalogue appeared. A com- 
mittee was appointed in the Convention of 1855 to inquire into the delay 
in the publication of the catalogue. In 1857 all former catalogue com- 
mittees were discharged and a new one was chosen, with full power to 
publish a catalogue as soon as possible, and the efficient chairman of 
the committee, Bro. G. L. Bennett, Rho '54, having been ably assisted 
by Judson H. Hopkins, Delta '50, as mentioned before, had the honor of 
reporting to the Grand Chapter in 1859 that the first Zeta Psi Catalogue 
had been published. 

The movement for a second catalogue began in 1864, with a motion 
that a new catalogue be published by the Grand Chapter, a motion made 
by Bro. Israel C. Pierson, Phi '65, who thus thirty-five years ago was 
actively interested in the affairs of the Fraternity. Bros. Charles H. 
Tillinghaste, Theta '64, Albert H. Gallatin, Phi '59, Henry T. Thomas, 
Omega '64, Lewis S. Pilcher,Xi '62, A. W. Bailey, Phi '65, and Satterlee 
Arnold, Pi '66, were appointed a committee for the purpose, and after 
three years' labor, published in 1867, the second catalogue of the Zeta 
Psi Fraternity, which contained 1,314 names. Bro. Samuel Marsh, Phi 
'67, advanced for its publication a large sum of money. He subsequently 
generously canceled a very considerable portion of the debt to himself 
which the Fraternity had thus incurred. In 1874 the Grand Chapter 
published an "addenda" to the catalogue of 1867 with 575 names, by a 
committee consisting of W. L. Otis, Pi '74, C. M. Knight, Kappa '73, J. 
E. Ensign, Xi '74, and H. C. Drake, Psi '72. The fourth catalogue of 
the Fraternity was published in 1884, after three years of labor, by a 
committee consisting of Bros. Charles B. Everson, Psi '78 (chairman), D. 
Cady Gere, Gamma '79, and Charles G. Belden, Gamma '79. The publi- 
cation of this volume was so wisely managed that Bro. Everson was able 
to report to the convention that, although the cost of publication exceeded 
two thousand dollars, the entire expense had been met and no debt re- 
mained for the Grand Chapter to assume. There were 2,724 names. 

Bro. Wyatt G. Johnston, Alpha Psi '84, issued, in 1888, a directory 
of members of the Fraternity, with addresses as then known. Bro. Samuel 
B. Sumner, Zeta '49, published a partial list of new members in 1889, 
and in 1892, Bros. J.Howard Ford, Psi '77 (chairman), William A. Hoe, 
Jr., Phi '88, and Israel C. Pierson, Phi '65, were appointed a committee 
to publish a complete directory of the Fraternity. Within one year the 
Zeta Psi Directory was issued, containing a remarkablj 7 complete and 
accurate list of 4,005 members, with addresses and alphabetical and 
geographical indexes. This directory, however, was meant to be simply 
the initial step in the publication of a great biographical catalogue. 
The same committee was continued in power, and has for over five years 


labored on this undertaking. The lamented death of Bro. Hoe deprived 
the committee of a valuable worker, and Bro. Pomeroy Ladue, Xi '90, 
was appointed in his place. Bro. Pierson, as secretary of the committee, 
has devoted himself to the task of editing- and publishing this catalogue 
with a singleness of purpose and an unselfish devotion of time and energy 
which places the whole Fraternity under a deep debt of gratitude to him. 
This monumental work, the Zeta Psi Biographical Catalogue of 1899, 
crowns the list of the Fraternity's publications. 

The remarkable improvement in internal organization which has char- 
acterized the last two decades has been manifested in one very important 
phase in the care that has been given to the collection and to the preserva- 
tion of the archives of the Fraternity. In 1884 an archivist was appointed, 
and historical matter, long scattered, was collected. Bro. Pierson, Phi 
'65, has been archivist since 1895, and has gathered and preserved in- 
valuable muniments of our early history. A systematic effort has been 
made to secure material illustrating the origin and growth of the Frater- 
nity. Many members have turned over to the Delta Alpha papers of 
great value which in private hands would inevitably have been lost in the 
course of time. These sources for the history of Zeta Psi are securely 
kept in a room devoted to that purpose in a fireproof building in New 
York City. The preservation of the more valuable records and papers is 
doubly secured by means of a fireproof safe. 

One of the great difficulties with which all fraternities have to con- 
tend is the tendency of graduate members to become absorbed in busi- 
ness, professional or family cares, and, to a degree, forget the asso- 
ciations of college days to which they owe so much of pleasure and of 
profit. Zeta Psi has endeavored to counteract this tendency by the for- 
mation of associations of Elders at different centres. Such associations 
have been or now are, with great benefit to the Fraternity, existent at 
Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Cleveland, Detroit, 
Chicago and San Francisco. 

A fraternity is known by its sons. Judged by that test Zeta Psi 
holds a proud rank in the list of American fraternities. Its Elders 
have won distinction in every honorable branch of public and private 
activity. United States Senators and Representatives, State Governors 
and legislators, diplomats, army and navy officers, college presidents 
and professors, eminent jurists on the national and State benches, promi- 
nent lawyers, clergymen, physicians, journalists and authors, success- 
ful financiers and business men attest the intellectual and moral worth 
of the men whom Zeta Psi has honored with membership in her mystic 
circle. To a remarkable degree have the Alumni of Zeta Psi been suc- 
cessful men. The Fraternity justly prides itself upon the attainments 
and social standing of the average member, whose success is, after all, 
a better criterion of the real worth of the Fraternity than the achieve- 
ments of those who have won national reputations. 

Zeta Psi, with a muster roll of about five thousand and fifty 
members, of whom nearly four thousand two hundred are living, 
enters upon its second half-century of existence with ample justi- 
fication for the belief that the future has abounding prosperity in store 
for the Fraternity which so proudly bears its name. Never during its half- 
century of history has Zeta Psi been so strong, and never have the indi- 
vidual chapters and the Grand Chapter been so effectively organized for a 
successful prosecution of the work for which they were constituted. Zeta 
Psi has nobly carried out the plans and fulfilled the ideals of the honored 
founders of the Fraternity. The work which they instituted has grown 
to proportions far surpassing their most sanguine expectations. For 
over half a century has Zeta Psi vitally influenced for good the lives of 
successive generations of college men, who have taken upon themselves 
the obligations and vows of the initiate. Character has been builded and 
manhood developed. Loyalty, truth, honor and love have been taught as 
essential elements in the character of every true son of Zeta Psi. Formed 


upon such principles, inspired by the examples of self-sacrifice and 
noble endeavor with which its history is replete and supported by the loyal 
devotion of enthusiastic sons, the weal of Zeta Psi is assured. So long as 
Tau Kappa Phi shall actuate the lives and motives of its members, prog- 
ress and prosperity will be chronicled by its historians and the Zeta 
Psi Fraternity of North America will maintain its present honored posi- 
tion in the American fraternity world. 














The early history of the Phi Chapter of Zeta Psi is the story of the 
birth and primitive days of the Fraternity. Its founder was John Bradt 
Yates Sommers, its birthplace was New York University, in the build- 
ing which stood on Washington Square, New York, from 1835 until 1894. 

A few prominent citizens of New York met on December 16, 1829, 
to consider "the establishment of a University on a liberal and exten- 
sive foundation." A standing committee, appointed at a second confer- 
ence which was held on January 6, 1830, secured, for the new enterprise, 
a large number of subscribers who, on October 16, 1830, organized and 
elected the first Council of the University of the City of New YorkJ, which 
was chartered as the corporation or governing body on April 16, 1831. 

The first president of the Council of New York University was Albert 
Gallatin, who had been Secretary of the Treasury under Jefferson and 
Madison for twelve years, Minister to France eight years from 1815, and 
Ambassador Extraordinary to London in 1826. He was the grandfather 
of Bros. Albert H. Gallatin, '59, and Frederick Gallatin, '61. The first 
Chancellor was Rev. James M. Matthews, D.D., from 1831 to 1839, when 
he was succeeded by an uncle of Bro. Frederick Frelinghuysen, Delta 
'68, Theodore Frelinghuysen, LL. D., who had been Attorney-General of 
New Jersey and U. S. Senator. During his chancellorship, 1839 to 
1850, Zeta Psi came to light. Myndert Van Schaick, the grandfather of 
Eugene Van Schaick of the Alpha and Phi Chapters, was one of the 
original promoters of the University and the first treasurer of the Council. 

College work was begun in October, 1832, in Clinton Hall, Bleecker 
Street, near Broadway. In 1833 was graduated the first class which 
consisted of three men, one of whom was a brother of John C. Acheson, 
M. D. , a Zeta Psi of the class of 1853. 

The building on Washington Square was finished and occupied 
in 1835, in which year the law school was started by Hon. B. F. 
Butler of New York. In the same year Prof. S. F. B. Morse, of the 
Faculty of Arts and Science, uncle of W. H. Morse, $ '72, applied 
the use of electricity to the recording telegraph and sent the first tele- 
gram from the room which he occupied in the University Building. 
Among the other things which N. Y. U. has given to the world, this 
and another rank with the most useful inventions of the wonderful century 
now closing; the other dates from 1839, when Prof. John W. Draper pro- 
duced in the University Buildingthe first sun picture of the human face. 
The opening of the School of Medicine under Dr. Valentine Mott, in 
1841, completed the University establishment as proposed by himself and 
the other founders. 

New York University was just entering upon the fourteenth year of 
college work when, in 1845, the founder of Zeta Psi, John B. Yates Som- 
mers, was admitted as a Freshman in the class of '49, having just 
completed his sixteenth year. Although there were already chapters of 
three strong fraternities in N. Y. U. , Bro. Sommers early in his college 
course decided to organize a new fraternity according to his own ideals 
and for this purpose associated with himself Bros. W. H. Dayton* and 
J. M. Skillman '49, and founded Zeta Psi on June 1, 1847f. Sketches^ 
of these three founders are given elsewhere. They prepared the consti- 
tution, by-laws, initiation service, pledge and other details of the scheme 
of the Fraternity. The earliest recorded minutes extant are those of a 
meeting of the Phi Chapter, held at the home of Bro. Sommers, 82 

II The name was changed to New York University on March 19, 1896. 

Died Aug. 17, 1847. t See History of Zeta Psi. J. See Sketches and Biographies. 
The system of naming Chapters was changed by convention of 1851. See History ol 


Madison Street, New York, on September 15, 1847, when he, as secretary, 
and Bro. Skillman, as president, were the only ones present the only 
members of the Fraternity. The first initiation occurred on September 27, 

1847, the second on October 13, 1847. The two men then initiated were ac- 
tually engaged in promoting the new enterprise for awhile but subse- 
quently became discouraged. Their names were dropped from the roll 
by appropriate action, however several cousins of the first and two sons 
of the second are now in the Zeta Psi fold. The third addition to the 
fraternity was Rev. William Henry Carter, D. D., LL. D., '50, now of 
Tallahassee, Fla., who was admitted on November 6, 1847. All delight 
to honor him as the oldest living initiate. Bro. Skillman, in his address 
on December 18, 1847, at the close of his term of office, said: "I know of 
nothing more encouraging than the present flourishing state of our 
Fraternity. To be sure we do not number as many as the majority of 
the societies in the University but I am equally certain there is none 
where greater unanimity and brotherly love exist among the members 
and I think I may say with propriety and truth, 'We were weak but 
are strong. ' ' ' Then there was one chapter with five members. 

The year 1848 saw fourteen accessions to Zeta Psi (two of whom 
later deserted the little band) and the founding of the first two new 
chapters. Rev. George S. Woodhull, D. D., '48, now of East Saginaw, 
Mich., the fourth acquisition, initiated on March 25, 1848, was the first 
Zete to be graduated. Rev. George S. Mott, D. D., '50, of Newark, N. J., 
was the fifth to join the new enterprise. The sixth and seventh additions 
were Rufus Button, '49, and Henry S. Hodges, Williams, '49, on May 11, 

1848. The first step toward extending the fraternity was taken on May 
23, 1848, when the Zeta Chapter was founded ; the second step on November 
24, 1848, when the foundation of the Delta Chapter at Rutgers College was 
laid by the initiation of JudsonH. Hopkins and John Hess, both of the class 
of '50, of that college, the thirteenth and fourteenth additions respectively. 

Those pioneers of Zeta Psi were men of strong faith, indomitable 
courage, unflinching zeal and boundless enthusiasm. The only survivors of 
the first year of Zeta Psi, June 1, 1847, to June 1, 1848, are the trio, Bros. 
Carter, Woodhull and Mott. In addition to winning college mates, Carter 
devised the motto, T K $, and Mott invented the pass- word while Wood- 
hull was the most successful promoter both in college and after grad- 
uation. He was a hustler for Zeta Psi and could give some points to the 
modern rusher. His influence brought Hodges from Williamstown and 
Hopkins and Hess from New Brunswick, to New York to be initiated 
into the mysteries of Zeta Psi so as to introduce the new Fraternity 
into their respective colleges. In his address at the Anniversary Cele- 
bration, June 4, 1849, he said: " May we long be spared and, when old 
age hath overtaken us and our sons shall occupy our places, may we meet 
and with hearts as young as now rejoice together in the meridian glory of 
Zeta Psi. " At that time there were three chapters and thirty members. 

During the early years the abiding place of the chapter was some- 
what nomadic, meetings having been held at the homes of Bro. Sommers 
and other members or in rooms rented in different places to suit the 
convenience and circumstances of the Brothers for, being only a few in 
number and having an initiation fee of but $1.00 at first and then $2.00 
and dues of 12^ c. per month, the infant chapter had a limited income 
with which it was necessary to make the expenses of meetings and of 
administration commensurate. As the income increased, by acquisition 
of men and the advance of fee and dues, the chapter secured more per- 
manent quarters, the latest downtown being at 21 University Place until 
June, 1894. During nearly all of the period at Washington Square, 
1847-94, the association in college work was included within a few hours 
chapel, 9.30 A. M. and recitations, 10 A. M. to 1 or 2 p. M. Chapter meet- 
ings were held weekly, much of the time alternately afternoon and 
evening. Although the members were widely scattered as to residence 
and chapter life had its limitations the brothers were bound closely 


together and derived great pleasure and profit from their fraternity 

The encroachment of business enterprises, immediately after the Civil 
War, on the hitherto residence neighborhood of Washington Square, the 
want of dormitory life and influences which it is not necessary to men- 
tion here, impeded development, but the spirit of the founders remained. 
The Phi Chapter, with all those interested in New York University, 
had firm faith that sooner or later there would be a change which came 
in 1881 when Rev. John Hall, D. D., was elected the fifth Chancellor, 
and the tide turned. Commodore David Banks, of the Phi Chapter, 
always active and enthusiastic in allN.Y. U. affairs, whether financial, 
educational or athletic, when in 1890, the Council voted to move the college 
work uptown and appointed a committee, with himself as chairman, to 
secure grounds, immediately made thorough investigation and selected 
an estate of forty acres beyond the Harlem River, between Morris 
Heights and Fordham Heights. The committee unanimously approved 
his choice and recommended the purchase of the available part of it. 
Subsequently the Council adopted the report of the committee and in 1892 
acquired the site for the University College. Meanwhile, in 1891, Dr. 
Hall resigned and was succeeded by Rev. Henry M. MacCracken, D. D., 
LL. D., the sixth Chancellor of N. Y. U., he having occupied the Chair of 
Philosophy since 1884 and held the office of Vice-Chancellor since 1885. 

After the usual exercises in celebration of Founders' Day, on April 
18, 1894, stones were removed from the old Washington Square building 
and transported under escort to University Heights, which the site was 
named. The Phi Chapter boys went in a tally-ho and joined in the cere- 
mony of laying the corner stone of the first building. Bro. Harry H. Wat- 
son, 1900, took the photographs of the group of N. Y. U. college buildings 
(in this book), the construction of which is a part of what has been accom- 
plished under Chancellor MacCracken's administration. 

The hopes and expectations cherished for many years by the Phi 
Chapter, as well as by the University Council, Alumni and students, 
were realized when the college work was moved in October 1894 to the 
new site. Some of the professional schools are necessarily separated as 
to location from the college, those of Law, Pedagogy and Post Graduate 
work (in part) being conducted in the new ten-story building at Wash- 
ington Square; that of Medicine at East 26th Street, near 2d Avenue, in 
close proximity toBellevue Hospital. But the strength of the chapter lies 
in the departments at University Heights, from which nearly all of the 
candidates for membership are chosen. Here on the plateau at an eleva- 
tion of nearly 200 feet above the Harlem River, looking out upon the 
Hudson River bounded by the Palisades, and commanding a view of the 
upper part of Manhattan Island as well as the country east and north, 
is the college quadrangle. On the west side of it stands the Library, 
having cost nearly $1,000,000, and Language Hall, while near by are 
located Havemeyer Chemical Laboratory and other buildings on the 
south side. On the east side is Ohio Field, with its quarter-mile track, 
the gridiron and diamond, on the south of which stands the gymnasium. 
Beyond is Gould Hall, one of the best built and equipped dormitories. 

Such were the auspicious conditions and prospects under which 
began the new era for the Phi Chapter, the closing years of the first and 
the early years of the second semicentennium. For the first year, 1894-5, 
the chapter occupied a house on Hampden Street and had the first expe- 
rience in chapter house life but in 1895 they leased a house which is 
almost as well adapted for chapter use as if it had been built for the 
purpose. The brothers are now enjoying their fifth year in this home 
to which they have become attached by many hours and days of frater- 
nal association. It is plainly yet comfortably furnished but there is 
always a hearty welcome to elders or brothers of the Phi or other chap- 
ters. In the music room is the piano which, by the purchase of the 
brothers of about 1888, adorned the old room at 21 University Place. 


Thanks to the care taken of it by Bro. Samuel F. Lindeman, '88, it is 
in good condition, and adds much to the pleasure of the present members. 
This house and the lot for the permanent chapter house are located on 
Andrews Avenue, astreet named afterthe father of Bro. Clarence Andrews, 
'73, Mr. Loring Andrews, who gave $100,000 to the general endowment 
of New York University in 1864, his home then being the present resi- 
dence of Chancellor MacCracken. The elders have incorporated the "Phi 
Chapter Association" for the purpose of holding property and erecting 
a chapter house, for which a lot 100x100 has been secured on the corner 
of Andrews and University Avenues, immediately opposite Ohio Field. 
There is good prospect that soon the Phi Chapter House will be a reality 
as well as an adornment to the college community. In this move there 
is much active interest on the part of the elders as well as undergraduates. 
The officers of the association, P. L. Schenck, M. D., '62, president; J. 
V. S. Woolley, M. D., '67, vice-president; Walter J. Greacen, '96, secre- 
tary; James Boyd, '82, treasurer, and the executive committee, as well 
as members, are working for this consummation. 

It is difficult to select out of the 347 members of the chapter a few 
only of those who have honored themselves as well as Zeta Psi in 
the faithful performance of duty in the several stations and circles of 
their service and influence, whether one has been college president, 
bishop, pastor, judge, lawyer, writer of standard works, banker, 
business man, etc., in public or in private life, in peace or in war. 
The biographies contain the names of many brothers who are on the 
Phi Beta Kappa roll and in the list of valedictorians and high honor 
and prize men. They occupy prominent places in class and college 
organizations, and have been active in the Alumni Association, as officers 
and members of committees, one as Chairman of the Committee on the 
first N. Y. U. Alumni Biographical Catalogue of 1894, while four are on 
the University Council. 

The chapter had many representatives in the Civil War. One of the 
founders of Zeta Psi, Bro. John M. Skillman, was in the U. S. Navy. 
In the army were Bros. W. H. Carter and G. S. Woodhull, as chaplains, 
and Bros. G. M. Van Hoesen, with the rank of major, E. M. Felt, W. 
G. Wheelwright, J. J. Gilette (a prisoner five months in Libby prison), 
J. N. Lewis, J. C. Carter and A. H. Gallatin (surgeons), A. C. Bishop 
(hospital service), W. De F. Prentiss, J. G. Derrickson (a prisoner ten 
months), F. Gallatin, G. N. Gardiner, P. D. Schenck (surgeon), W. R. 
Syme, J. C. Chalmers, C. C. Van Inwegen and C. S. Halstead. In the navy 
were Bros. J. A. Walker and H. C. Van Gieson (surgeons) and Isaac New- 
ton as assistant to Capt. John Ericsson at the request of the latter, in 
construction of the U. S. ram "Monitor," of which he was chief engineer 
of a volunteer crew in the battle with the "Merrimac," 1862. Capt. 
Worden complimented him for "coolness, skill and energy." Afterwards 
he superintended the construction of the "Puritan" and "Dictator," 
and remained in the navy until 1865. In the Confederate service were 
brothers who manifested the same spirit of bravery, courage and devo- 
tion as did those on the other side, Bros. Salem Dutcher as adjutant 
and Howard C. Wright as captain. The latter wrote "Account of the 
Siege of Port Hudson," which was published in Harper's and is said 
to be one of the best articles on that subject. Some of those engaged 
in the Spanish-American War were Bros. Augustus Van Gieson, '72, 
C. F. Gardner, '91, R. R. Wedekind, '91, Geo. Wedekind, '92, and Paul 
Grout, '94, in the army, and T. T. T. Craven, 1901, in the navy. The 
biographies contain the details of rank and service which for lack of 
space it is necessary to omit here. 

Among those in educational circles are Bros. J. M. Van Vleck, '50, 
as Acting President of Wesleyan University, and Bro. John J. Rice, '64, 
as Acting President of Westminster College, and four of the nine Zeta 
Psi Professors or Instructors in the Faculties of the University. On the 
Faculties in the past were Bros. A. H. Gallatin, '59, and H. G. Piffard, '62. 


Bro. George M. Van Hoesen, '52, adorned the bench for fourteen years. 
Bro. Charles DeW. Bridgman, '55, was held in high esteem and, had he 
lived, would probably have been chosen in the Episcopal Church to the 
office of Bishop which Bro. D. A. Goodsell, '59, holds in the Methodist 
Church. If the episcopate were for Presbyterians, Bro. John McVey, 
'60, and others might be considered available candidates. 

Bro. Joseph Nimmo, Jr. , '53, has written many books and articles on 
commerce, economics and industrial statistics. Bro. A. A. Redfield, '60, 
was co-author of "Shearman and Redfield on Negligence. " His "Red- 
field's Surrogate's Practice," "Redfield's Surrogate's Reports," and 
other works are the standard text books and authorities on the subject. 
Bro. Salem Dutcher, '58, is the author of "Minority Representation," 
"Expressions of Law and Fact construed by the Courts of Georgia," 
and other works. Among the many other authors and writers of the 
chapter are Bros. C. R. Barnes, '63, and F. L. R. Satterlee, '65. 

Mention might be made of Bros. F. A. Wilcox, '60, counsel of many 
railroad and steamship companies; David Banks, the head of the firm of 
Banks Bros., the largest and oldest law publishing house in this country; 
H. W. Bragg, '61, of Boston, bar examiner and justice; L. Skidmore, '61, 
member of N. Y. U. Council; E. H. Litchfield, '67, Commissioner N. Y. 
State Board of Charities since 1893, member of N. Y. U. Council several 
years; A. B. Carlton, '72, Comptroller of Elizabeth, N. J., since 1883; 
Prince Heromich Shugeo, '76, of Tokyo, Japanese Imperial Commissioner 
to the Paris Exposition of 1900; Alonzo Blauvelt, '73, chief of the Con- 
tagious Diseases Department of the N. Y. Board of Health; M. H. Seligman, 
'75, banker; W. F. Whittemore, '83, consulting engineer for water and 
steamship companies. 

The Phi Chapter, in addition to founding the Zeta and Delta Chap- 
ters, has taken part in the establishment or the reestablishment of other 
chapters. Bro. Sommers aided to establish the Sigma Chapter. Bro. A. 
H. Gallatin, '59, presided at the reestablishment of the Zeta and the 
founding of the Eta Chapter (Yale). Bros. Arthur B. Waring, '70, and 
Albert B. Carlton, '72, founded the Iota Chapter and another Phi brother 
participated in the reestablishment of the Beta and the founding of 
the Alpha Beta Chapters. The chapter has entertained the Grand Chap- 
ter several times, has been represented by delegates at every one of the 
long list of conventions since 1847, excepting three, Springfield, 1854, 
Cleveland, 1877, and Troy, 1879 (although an elder was present at the 
latter), and has furnished many Grand Officers and members of com- 
mittees who were active and efficient in their several positions. 

Bro. W. H. Cooke, '60, with J. F. Dripps, '63, prepared the amended 
constitution which was adopted in 1862 and gave expression to his own 
spirit as well as that of Zeta Psi, * in the resolutions concerning the 
brothers who were engaged in theCivil War. Bros. J. Fred Dripps, '63, E. 
P. Sprague, '64, and J. J. Rice, '64, revised the ritual practically as it 
now is in use. Bros. A. H. Gallatin, '59, and A. W. Bailey, '65, were 
members of the Committee of Publication of the Catalogue of 1867 and 
Bro. Samuel Marsh, Jr., '67, advanced the money for the cost of it. 
Others were on the committees on the last revision of the Constitution, 
the Semicentennial Song Book, the Directory of '93, and the Semicenten- 
nial Biographical Catalogue. Several brothers have filled offices pro 
tern., notably as Sigma Alpha, Bro. James Boyd, '82 (past Sigma Alpha) 
in 1891 and Bro. Freman Woodbridge, '89, in 1892. 

Some of the members of the Chapter, with bright promise of suc- 
cess and usefulness, have been taken away in the very beginning of 
their careers. The first one was Bro. James C.Watson, '50. Hisfather's 
home in New York was a resort of the literati of that day, Irving, 
Bryant, Prescott and others. After the delivery of his commencement 
oration Irving presented to him "a beautiful bouquet of roses from Sun- 

* See History of Zeta PsL 


nyside." Prof. Henry M. Baird says that he regarded "Watson as the 
best writer in the class. His essays were capital, hig-hly imaginative 
and very entertaining." He chose a literary career but, unfortunately, 
he broke down in health and died Dec. 27, 1851. 

Among the latest and greatest losses which the Phi Chapter, as well 
as the Fraternity, has met, occurred on Feb. 19, 1897, by the death of Bro. 
William Alfred Hoe, Jr. , '88. A BK, he was graduated at the age of VJ l / 2 
years, with fourth honor and the degrees of B. S. and C. E. Fidelity to 
duty and affability of manner gained for him such high approval that 
in January, 1896, being a little over twenty-six years of age, he was made 
a member of the firm of James C. Hoe's Sons, builders, of which his 
father was the head. As to the Chapter he was ever actively and prac- 
tically interested. As Sigma Alpha, 1894-6, he has never been surpassed 
as to the conscientious and efficient manner in which he did every part 
of the arduous work of that important office. He was a member of the 
committee on the Zeta Psi Directory of 1893 and (until his death) on this 
Semicentennial Biographical Catalogue of 1899. An appropriate and a 
perpetual monument to him is the William A. Hoe, Jr., Engineering 
Prize, founded at New York University by his father, Mr. William A. Hoe. 
Bro. C. C. Crawford, '91, was the editor-in-chief of the first number 
of the Violet, the N. Y. U. Annual. Of the eleven numbers of the Violet, 
the Phi Chapter has had the editorship-in-chief four times. In 1858 Bro. 
A. A. Redfield was the chief editor of a paper called The Item. Thirty- 
six years later, Bro. J. R. Evans, '98, projected and for four years was 
the editor of a weekly by the same name, which, in 1897, was changed to 
The Triangle. Bro. F. W. Carpenter, '99, was chief editor in his Senior 
year. Other brothers have been and are now on the board of editors. 

In athletics the brothers have always been actively engaged. Since 
1882 they have been interested in lacrosse. Bro. C. C. Miller, '88, member 
of N. Y. U. Council, was recently elected president of the Inter-University 
Lacrosse Association. Bro. R. B. Keane, captain of the '97 football team, 
now at Yale Medical School, was on the Yale '99 'varsity football team. 
In the intercollegiate gymnastic contest at University Heights in 1899, 
eighteen colleges being represented, Frank J. Belcher, '00, took second 
prize and two Yale Zetes took third and fourth prizes. 

There is not space to mention the many brothers who were active in 
chapter affairs during the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties. All 
honor to those who laid the foundation and to those who built the super- 
structure, decade by decade, loyal to and fond of Zeta Psi to-day as when 
they were in college. The brothers of the nineties maintained at Wash- 
ington Square what had been so well established, and then cheerful and 
hopeful, undertook to perpetuate their rich heritage at University Heights. 
Recalling the very small beginnings of Zeta Psi, the difficulties 
which Bro. Sommers met and overcame with strong faith and dauntless 
courage, the growth from the trio at June 1, 1847, in one chapter to 
twenty-one active chapters and about five thousand and fifty members at 
the present time, the Phi Chapter rejoices in the prosperity and strength 
of the chapters and the Fraternity, and is glad to see the modest light 
of the dawning developed into the prophetic "meridian glory" of Zeta Psi. 

Then honor it in feast and song 

And bid it stand, as years go by, 

Full ranked, unrivaled, firm and strong, 

The brotherhood of Zeta Psi.

FOUNDED MAY 23 1848 














Williams College, in which the Zeta Chapter was founded, came into 
existence on June 22, 1793. It is situated in Williamstown, Mass., three 
miles from the northwest corner of the State, and a Berkshire town famed 
for scenery and the beauties of nature. The town and college are 
named from Col. Ephraim Williams, an old Indian fighter, who gave by 
will, money to be used in forming a free school at the place where the 
college now stands. There are usually about four hundred students in 
its four classes, and it has no departments aside from its regular colle- 
giate work. It gives but one degree for undergraduate work, that of 
Bachelor of Arts, the whole idea and aim of the college being to impart 
a general liberal education rather than a specialized one. 

The Zeta (originally the Alpha of Mass.) Chapter of Zeta Psi was 
established at Williams College on May 23, 1848. One of its founders 
was John Benjamin Yates Sommers, the originator of the fraternity and 
a representative of the Phi Chapter. The other two were George S. 
Woodhull, also from the Phi, and Henry Silas Hodges, who had been ini- 
tiated a few days before and was a Junior in Williams. There were 
four fraternity chapters existing in the college at that time, and with 
them the Zeta soon took a place of strength and importance. Eleven 
men were initiated in 1848, and nine in the year following; and the roll 
of membership included several who attained high distinction in later 
years. Among them, of those who have passed away, may be mentioned 
Hon. Samuel Barstow Sumner, clerk of the Supreme Court of Connecti- 
cut; Hon. Addison Cook Niles, Judge of the Supreme Court of California, 
and Hon. Phineas Warriner Hitchcock, U. S. Senator from Nebraska 
during 1871-7. 

The chapter first held its meetings in a private building nearly op- 
posite the old Union House, and then in the lodge room of the Odd Fel- 
lows on South Street, until quarters of its own, consisting of a hall in 
one of the buildings at the foot of the hill below East College, were 
finally secured, in 1850. 

In spite of an existence so well begun, and so greatly assisted, one 
would think, by the convention of Z W held in Williams, August 14, 1849, 
the Zeta's early history was somewhat brief, lasting about three years, 
and terminating when the resignation from the fraternity was presented 
and accepted in Jthe convention of 1852. This untimely cessation of a 
movement promising great success must always be regarded as a pro- 
nounced misfortune, and it is also to be deplored that the records of that 
interesting period have been lost. It is known that in 1850 Bros. Ezra 
Jones Peck and John Stewart Barry journeyed to Waterville, Me., and 
assisted in bringing the Chi Chapter into existence. By searching in- 
quiry it has been ascertained that the passing of the Zeta was the out- 
come of an unfortunate controversy among the members, the exact na- 
ture of which, after so many years, cannot be explained with confidence; 
but aside from these events, together with the others already given, 
and the handful of traditions that have been rescued, no further historical 
material is at hand. In connection with this, however, it should be added 
that in the light of the fragmentary information available, the chief 
honors apparently belong to Henry Silas Hodges, previously mentioned, 
who was probably the leading spirit in accomplishing the formation of 
the chapter; and the fact of his early death, only two years later, lends 
an element of pathos to his memory. 

In 1861 an attempt was made to regain the charter, but it met with 
defeat, the refusal being grounded on the belief that Williams already 
had as many fraternities as the college could well support. Twenty 
years later, however, there dawned an era which, though critical and 


anxious at the start, was full of hopes, which have since been abundantly 
realized. In 1881 a local societj- recently formed in the college, petitioned 
for a chapter of Zeta Psi, and Professor Truman Henry Safford, of the 
Rho, commended the petition to the convention, and was largely instru- 
mental in obtaining- its favorable reception. Bro. Safford 's invaluable 
assistance at this time, and his ever-constant and loyal friendship toward 
the Zeta, are regarded with the sincerest gratitude. On November 21, 
1881, Albert Horatio Gallatin from the Phi, D. Cady Gere from the 
Gamma, Samuel Barstow Sumner of the Zeta., Charles Brown Everson 
from the Psi, and Franklin Haylander Bowen, Jr., from the Pi, initiated 
the petitioners, and again the Zeta was a living chapter. The names of 
the original members of this later period are as follows: IraJewettGeer, 
John Westfield Gillette, Francis Lock wood Kendall, Norman Plass, 
George Henry Badger, Frederick Geller, Frederick Morris Herrick, 
Charles Kellogg Ober, Fred De Lysle Smith, Arthur Francis Winslow, 
Richard Achilles Ballinger, William Farrand Livingston, John Corgell 
Parsons, Edward Ernest Bradley, Arthur Day Hawley, William Hall 
Poore and Walter Bramhall Sanford. 

To this list new names were soon added, and the Zeta., aided by a 
pleasant relationship with the Gamma Chapter, early acquired a mature 
conception of its new responsibilities. The history of its eighteen years 
up to the present time is most gratifying. The Zeta's success, starting 
from the wise and vigorous policy of the men who effected the reestablish- 
ment, has been rapid and yet normal; and though the total membership 
is not large, numbering in all but 178, of which 143 are of the later 
period, the chapter has developed a strong vitality, and the steadily in- 
creasing ranks of graduates are giving it their loyal and substantial 
support. Two alumni associations are already in existence, one in New 
York City, with eight or ten years to its credit, and the other in western 
New York, organized in 1896. 

The chapter, since its revival, has occupied two houses in succession, 
the first being a small building facing the Field Park, which it found 
necessary to leave, in 1890, for the commodious dwelling which serves 
as its present home. This is a building of pleasing architecture which 
stands in a most desirable position, on North Street, commanding from 
its windows and piazzas an extensive view of the Berkshire Hills. 

This brief history of the Zeta can close perhaps in no better way 
than with a list of its members who have had the honor of holding Grand 
Chapter offices. Their names are as follows: Charles Allen Sumner, 5? A; 
Henry Axtell, A $ A; Charles Abbott Stowell, A $ A; Ezra. Jones Peck, 
A $A,2A; Thomas Gillfillan, 2 A; Walter Anson Weed, Jr., A 2 A-, 
Samuel Barstow Sumner, 2 p A.

Queens College 
(Erected 1808) 


RUTGERS COLLEGE was one of the eight colleges founded before the 
Revolution, its first charter having been granted by Gov. Franklin of 
New Jersey, on Nov. 10, 1766. An amended charter was granted in 
1770, under which it began active work. Its primary object was to fit 
men living in America for the Ministry; and secondarily to give in- 
struction in the Liberal Arts. At times in its early history its exercises 
were suspended, but it has continued uninterruptedly since 1325, when 
also its name was changed from "Queen's" to "Rutgers" in honor 
of Col. Henry Rutgers, a liberal benefactor. In 1865 it was made the 
State College "for the benefit of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts." 
At about the same time the religious instruction was taken away from 
the College and given to the New Brunswick Theological Seminary. 
The two departments of Rutgers now are the College or Classical 
School, and the Scientific School. 

At two o'clock on the afternoon of November 24, 1848, Judson Hawley 
Hopkins and John Hess, two students of Rutgers College, in the class 
of 1850, entered the house at 184 Henry Street, New York City, where 
Hopkins' intimate friend and cousin, George S. Woodhull, Phi '48, 
lived. Their purpose was secret, the result momentous, for there 
in Woodhull 's house they were initiated into the rites and mysteries 
of the Zeta Psi Fraternity. Bro. Hopkins was the thirteenth initi- 
ate into the Fraternity of Zeta Psi, and was received by the members 
of the "Alpha of New York," the parent and present Phi Chapter. 
In January, 1849, Bro. Hopkins and Bro. Hess added to their number 
from the students at Rutgers, Cortlandt Van Wyck, '50, and Charles 
Matthews, '50. These four made up the charter members. On January 
15, 1849, a petition was read in the "Alpha of New York," signed by 
these four students, asking that a chapter be formally established at 
Rutgers. Heretofore they had to journey to New York to attend the 
meetings there, an inconvenient and suspicious proceeding. With the 
consent of the "Alpha of Massachusetts," the Williams College Chapter, 
now the Zeta Chapter, the petition was granted, and a committee of one 
(Bro. Woodhull) was appointed to determine upon the ceremonies to be 
used at the installation of the "Alpha of New Jersey." This took place 
shortly after, for the first meeting of the new chapter was held on Jan- 
uary 22, 1849. Later in the year Matthews left college and was dropped 
from the chapter roll, and Peter W T arren Rousse, '50, the fifth initiate, 
was chosen to take his place among the charter members. On October 20, 
1851, in accordance with the action taken in the Grand Chapter of 1851, 
the Rutgers Chapter took to itself the name of "Delta" instead of 
"Alpha of New Jersey. " 

The most important institutions at Rutgers in those days were the 
two great literary societies, the Philoclean and Peithosophian. Every 
student was a member of one of these. To prevent what has since taken 
place, i. e., that the Greek Letter Fraternities should supersede these 
rival societies, Philo had passed a law that only five of its members 
could be also members of a Greek Letter Fraternity. Bros. Hopkins, 
Hess and Van Wyck were all members of Peitho, and, on account of the 

NOTR. I desire here to express my indebtedness for the great majority of the facts of 
this history to the following documents in the possession of Bro. H. M. Waldron '93; the 
histories ot' Bro. John H. Raven, '91, written in 1889 ; and of Bro. Joseph R. Duryee, '74, written

intense rivalry, could not seek for Zetes among Philocleans. However, 
they won Peter Warren Rousse, '50, who made it a condition of joining 
that four of his intimate friends and associates, who were Philocleans, 
should also be received. This, of course, was gladly assented to, and 
Richard Ludlow Larremore, '50, Garret C. Schenck, '51, Oliver H. Hoff- 
man, '51, and Charles H. Skillman, '51, were shortly after initiated into 
Zeta Psi. Thus only five Philocleans were Zetes, and by this living up 
to the letter of the law, the Delta Chapter obtained favor among the 
students. Two more students from Peitho were initiated when college 
opened, and in the fall of 1849 the chapter started on its first j'ear of 
active work with ten members. As an example of the high standard of 
these early Zetes, we might mention that at the Junior Exhibition in 
June, 1849, five out of the eight orators on that occasion were Zetes. 
Zeal for Zeta Psi characterized these pioneers, for during the first 
decade ninety-four men were initiated, and the chapter was always full to 
thelimit. It was not until twenty-four years later, in 1884, that two hundred 
had been enrolled. "Of the first one hundred less than half are living, 
but how far above the average has been their success in life ! About 
forty became lawyers, of whom a dozen rose to high judicial station; 
sixteen entered the ministry, all but two of whom became Doctors of 
Divinity ; sixteen became physicians and among the most distinguished 
in the land ; a dozen chose mercantile careers, and ten were farmers, 
and in every case have been influential for good. " 

During the Civil War no less than eighteen men served as officers 
in the Union Army or Navy and nine in the Confederate, making a total 
of twenty-seven Delta men who would have cheerfully given their lives 
for what they thought was right ; six of these did so. During our more 
recent war, Bro. James Parker, '74, Lieutenant-Colonel of the Twelfth 
N. Y. Volunteer Infantry, did his part in rescuing Cuba. A private in 
his command wrote in his letter home of the trials of camp life, of the 
inefficiency of some officers, and of the longing of the men for active 
service. "And," he went on to say, "when it comes, the Twelfth Regi- 
ment will make a record beyond the others, for we have the best com- 
mander in the service, and the boys will follow on through hell should 
Col. Parker lead the way." When the war closed, Bro. Parker was 
honorably discharged, but was afterwards appointed Lieut. -Col. of the 
45th U. S. Volunteers. 

Secret societies were not in favor at Rutgers during the fifties. The 
Alumni, Trustees and Faculty all frowned upon them, and passed 
resolutions and by-laws restricting and prohibiting them. Solution of 
knotty problems was the order of the day for such as swore allegiance 
to them. Nothing introduced by the college authorities availed, how- 
ever, and with the death of President Frelinghuysen in 1862, the old 
order of things passed away. President Campbell saw that it was a 
losing fight and abolished the restrictive bans. As a consequence, a 
number of secret leagues, societies and brotherhoods were formed, and 
petitions were sent to the larger fraternities for charters. Owing to the 
Civil War, the enrollment of students was very small, with a consequent 
reduction in the membership of the chapter. 

These two factors, as well as internal dissensions, brought about 
the first crisis of the Delta Chapter, which may be dated 1866. The 
number of initiates had been steadily dropping; for various reasons the 
membership was depleted, and at that time, affairs reached such a 
climax that two members were expelled. Others tendered their resigna- 
tions, but later withdrew them. This transitional and critical period 
of 1861-1867 was a direct result of the great conflict of opinions going on 
in our political life. Both the college and the fraternity felt it. New 
views of life were presented, and it was not strange that the young 
minds of the collegians should be driven asunder by differences. Yet 
the spirit of Zeta Psi held fast her members, and the dissensions within 
were not disclosed to the outer world. The staunch vessel weathered 


the gale, and with a new crew and pilot set forth with fair weather upon 
her second voyage. There can be no doubt that the pilot of that time 
was Bro. George Sharpe Duryee, of the class of 1872, a man who has left 
the impress of his character upon his fraternity, college and State. 
With a band of earnest, capable men, he soon had restored the former 
prestige of Zeta Psi, until it was without a rival in the college. From 
1867-1874, forty Brothers were initiated, against twenty-six during the pre- 
vious seven years. 

Everything in college life was in Zete hands. Targum Editors, 
Boat Club Directors, Class Presidents, Head Ushers, etc., were usually 
Zeta Psis. The College Annual, The Scarlet Letter, was originated 
and published by the Zetes, with Bro. G. S. Duryee as the first editor- 
in-chief. Class-day exercises had been revived and ruled by them. 
After the graduation of the class of 1872, however, their grip slackened 
through carelessness and overconfidence. The story of their first fight 
is thus told by Bro. J. R. Duryee, '74: 

"At the beginning of the fall term that year (1872), a mighty coali- 
tion of the other fraternities was formed to overwhelm us. The first 
great event was the election of Targum Editors. As went this election, 
so would we stand in public opinion for many a long day. And it was 
Zeta Psi against the field. We hastily tried to build our fences, but 
they would not hold. All the morning most of us spent the precious 
hours in buttonholing, cajoling, bribing and threatening the elusive 
neutrals, only to realize that the hated opposition had seduced them from 
their proper guides. But where was Howard Fuller? For three long 
days and nights he had mysteriously absented himself from hall and 
rooms, nor taken any into his confidence. At the close of recitations, 
the voting was to be by classes in the chapel. In the dark moment when 
the last Sophomores were passing out, and our foes were gloating 
because of what seemed an assured triumph, the tramping of a host was 
heard, and the entire Freshman class, numbering nearly half the 
college, led by Fuller, entered. Each in turn took from him a ballot 
which was deposited; and the benediction of his smile was a sufficient 
recompense. And so we won the day. Talk of Stalky and Co. ! Why 
Howard Fuller could give points to the best of Kipling's heroes and then 
conjure the lot of them out of sight." 

In 1874 ten members were graduated, leaving but five in the chapter and 
a large debt. They had almost reached the bottom, and the uphill fight 
became hard and difficult. The college was small, and the rivalry of 
the five fraternities fierce; hence the membership during these years 
was never large, while the load of the debt seemed enormous. But the 
needed man came; and the name of Bro. Jonathan Bruen Miller, '79, will 
be remembered while the Delta shall stand. Ceaseless activity for 
Zeta Psi marked the eight years of his connection with it, from 1875 
until his death. Through his personal work, the debt incurred was 
removed, and the first half of this trying period, well-called the "Storm 
and Stress" period of the chapter, was successfully passed. 

Again did the numbers decrease until in 1883 only three active mem- 
bers were left in the chapter, and the fear of suspension stared them in 
the face. But Bro. John Laubenheimer, '83, had been graduated that spring 
and had entered the New Brunswick Theological Seminary; so that he 
was at hand to aid. This minimum membership also roused up that 
famous body of "Newark Alumni," who assisted the struggling chapter 
in many ways. Bro. Laubenheimer 's work was crowned with success, 
for among the first initiates was Bro. Warren J. Brodie, '87. To his 
inspiring work is due the rise from this third crisis to the flood tide of 
prosperity which existed in '89 and '90. Bro. Brodie was a most earnest 
and convincing talker, and he used this talent for his fraternity. Dr. 
Wm. V. V. Mabon once said: "Brodie, if you would enter the ministry 
and work as hard for the church as you do for Zeta Psi you would make 
the Devil bestir himself. " As an example of his work and its result, 


we may state that he joined the chapter when it was three in number; 
he left it twenty-one strong. 

The years '86-'92 were the most progressive in the chapter's 
history, for during then it left rented rooms and entered a house of 
its own. The meetings also were well attended and sustained ; 
the members enjoyed an unexcelled social position and a high rank 
in college affairs; and among them were some prize-winners. Later 
the membership decreased until in 1897 there were but nine under- 
graduate Brothers. This crisis is now happily passed. Great credit 
should be given to certain of the younger alumni, who, through all 
these depressing years, have continued unfaltering in their encour- 
agement and advice, and have spurred the lagging Brothers to 
the work. 

One organization in connection with the chapter must be spoken of. 
In 1877 a circular signed by Bros. Peter Warren Rousse, 'SO, William 
Stoddard, '74, Edward H. Duryee, '76, Cortlandt Parker, Jr., '78, and 
J. Bruen Miller, '79, was sent around among the Elders in order to form 
an Alumni Association. In December, 1878, the Alumni Association of 
the Delta Chapter of the Zeta Psi Fraternity was organized, and regular 
meetings have been held at Commencement time since then. In 1889, five 
Trustees were elected to procure a chapter house, and proper steps for 
the purchase of one were taken. The present house, at 18 College 
Avenue, was bought by these Trustees and the grounds fitted up. 

But I am anticipating. Up to this time no record has been made of 
the different places of meeting of the Delta Chapter. To make this his- 
tory valuable in one respect at least, a careful research on this subject 
has been made, and the following list of housings is submitted: 

From November 24, 1848, to May 1, 1851, there was no regular 
meeting-place. The chapter met in the rooms of the students, or in 
rooms hired for the night, or at times in the college building itself. 
Soon, however, the need of a permanent room was felt, and they procured 
a hall at the corner of Peace and Albany Streets, the first contract for 
which reads thus: 

"I hereby lease to Robert S. Manning and John F. Talmadge, a 
committee of the Zeta Psi Society of Rutgers College, the room situated 
in the third story of my house, to hold in their possession for society pur- 
poses for one year from May 1, 1851, for the sum of $15, in quarterly 
instalments, and do also give them the right to place there such conve- 
nience for fire as may be necessary. Henry Wiley." 

The chapter remained there for nine years, until 1860. One great 
advantage of the room was its accessibility, for an outside stair, although 
steep, led to its entrance. From this modest, yet pleasant apartment 
they went to the Algonquin Lodge Room, in Liberty Street, between 
George and Neilson, where the Masons met. They remained there four 
years, until once again they wanted rooms of their own. This time they 
rented a room on the third floor of the Parsons Building, at 15 Church 
Street. They began occupancy there September 12, 1864, and continued 
until 1880. Thus memories of sixteen years hover about this meeting- 
room. In the fall of 1880 they rented rooms at 9 and 11 Peace Street. 
These were on the third floor of the Frankenstein Building. Ward's 
drygoods store was below, the Young Men's Catholic Club occupied the 
second floor, and the Jewish Synagogue was in the rear. There were 
two rooms, one large, the other small, and the Brothers took turns in 
caring for them. They met there for three years. 

The large Masonic Hall which had recently been built at the corner 
of George and Albany Streets offered very desirable quarters, so they 
moved to Room 13, on the third floor, in September, 1883. There were 
really two rooms, a large one and a small one. The latter was used as 
a lodge-room, but it was too small, and the meetings always overflowed 
into the larger one. On February 1, 1888, the chapter moved down to 
Rooms 6, 7 and 8, on the second floor. Here there were three rooms 


instead of two. The first was used as a billiard-room, the second as a 
general gathering and reception room, and the third was the lodge-room. 
All three were of equal size and were entered by a single door leading 
from one into the other. 

The question of a chapter house had long been considered. It was 
now found especially needful since Delta Phi had built. Just at this 
time a large piece of property on College Avenue, across the street from 
the college, was offered for sale at an exceptionally low figure. The 
house on it had been built about 1862. Later its owner, ex-Mayor 
Marvin J. Merchant, enlarged it by adding an entire right wing. 
During the summer of 1889 the Trustees already mentioned bought the 
whole piece of property. Subscriptions were immediately raised and the 
first payment was made in cash. The frontage on Easton Avenue, which 
was of no use to the chapter, was sold, and a mortgage of $5,000 was 
left. The Alumni Association have reduced this gradually in the last 
ten years, and it will not be long before the whole will be wiped out. 

The property has a frontage on College Avenue of 100 feet and 
extends back 300 feet, giving ample room for a fine tennis court, sur- 
rounded by numerous old cherry -trees, which give abundant shade and 
fruit in season. The house itself is substantially built and originally 
cost a great deal. It is a double frame structure, a large hallway on the 
main floor extending the length of the house and opening on a back 
porch. On the right is one large, long room, which is used as a billiard 
and general gathering room. On the left are two smaller rooms, the 
front, the reception-room and library, the rear, the dining-room. On the 
second floor are comfortable and convenient sleeping-rooms for the 
Brothers living in the house; there being accommodations for eight or ten. 
The lodge-room is conveniently located for its purposes. The chapter 
moved in during August, 1889, and the house was handsomely fitted up. 
On May 9, 1890, the housewarming was given, the most brilliant social 
success of the college. Since then dances have every year been held in 
the house, which is admirably adapted for such events. In fact, ours is 
the only fraternity house in the college which can comfortably accom- 
modate large companies.* 

The Delta Chapter has always been active for the Fraternity. It 
spread the good news of Zeta Psi abroad to other colleges. Bro. Peter 
Warren Rousse, '50, full of zeal for the infant Zeta Psi, started on a 
campaign of chapter-founding. On May 14, 1850, Jonathan Longstreet, 
a Princeton student of the class of 1850, was initiated at New Bruns- 
wick, and on June 3, 1850, five others came up from Princeton and joined 
our Fraternity. This was the inception of the Omicron Chapter, the Beta 
of New Jersey. On July 8, 1850, Edward W. and Samuel E. Appleton, 
then attending the University of Pennsylvania, came to New Brunswick 
and were initiated into the rites and ceremonies of Zeta Psi, and re- 
turned to their University. Shortly after Bro. Rousse and Bro. J. B. 
Yates Sommers, Phi '49, the founder of Zeta Psi, initiated the charter 
members of the Sigma at the University of Pennsylvania. Subse- 
quently the Appleton brothers came back and were graduated at Rutgers. 
In 1852 Bro. Rousse and Bro. Edward Appleton, '52, were instrumental 
in the starting of the Chapter at Brown ; and while attending the Law 
School at Harvard, Bro. Rousse received the authority and initiated 
the members of the Rho Chapter at Harvard. Later, in 1858, the charter

members of the Upsilon were initiated by the Delta, and it was largely 
due to the efforts of Bro. R. A. Anthony, Delta '81, and Bro. C. W. 
Cutler, Delta '79, that the Alpha Chapter was established at Columbia 
in 1879. 

Owing- to the small membership in newly founded fraternities, the 
earlier chapters gained a preponderance of Grand Chapter Officers, 
many Delta men being numbered among them. 

The Delta has many valuable documents in its possession. Treasure 
after treasure has been dug forth from its richly laden archives ; for a 
time it guarded the Omicron Chapter minutes and letters ; while Grand 
Chapter minutes, old letters, constitutions, and initiation services docu- 
mentary history which is priceless have been gathered and kept through 
these many years, until now it has been filed and safely stored by Bro. 
H. M. Waldron, '93. 

During these fifty years, two hundred and sixty-seven Brothers have 
been initiated into the Delta Chapter. Of these sixty-four have become 
lawyers; thirty-four, physicians; thirty, ministers. The others, not 
seeking these professional callings, have interested themselves in various 
businesses and manufactures. Seventy-five only have crossed to join 
the choir invisible, leaving a body of Elders, numbering nearly two 
hundred, staunch, true and loyal Zetes. 

It is but right that we should mention one name dear to the heart of 
every Delta Zete. Bro. William Rankin Duryee, D.D., '56, truly showed 
in his life, character, and deeds the great principles of Tau Kappa Phi. 
A good Zete, an honest citizen, a noble Christian, he was an inspiration 
and a help to his younger Brothers during all his connection with the 
Delta, and was ever a welcome guest within our chapter halls. He 
always had the "Zete House" in mind, and great was the assistance he 
gave us. The tokens of his affection adorn our walls, the benediction of 
his noble face falls upon our gatherings in the great long room, and his 
memory shall ever be fresh as we sing his classic hymn : 

"Zeta Psi, we pledge to-night 
Evermore to love thee. " 

And that is the resolve of the Delta Chapter as it enters upon its 
second half century.

Princeton University ranks fourth in order of founding among Ameri- 
can colleges. It received its charter in 1746 from John Hamilton, presi- 
dent of His Majesty's Council, and was established "for the intellectual 
and religious culture of youth desirous to obtain a liberal education, 
and more especially for the thorough training of such as were candidates 
for the ministry." The college was opened in May, 1747, at Elizabeth, 
under the presidency of the Rev. John Dickinson, who died in October, 
and was succeeded by Rev. Aaron Burr. A second and more liberal 
charter was granted the college in 1848, equal advantages and privi- 
leges being given to members of every denomination of Christians. On 
the death of its first president the seat of the college was removed from 
Elizabeth to Newark, the residence of the second president, where it 
remained until 1757, when it was removed to Princeton, on securing the 
erection there of Nassau Hall (named in memory of William III.). This 
is the oldest college building, and was erected in 1756. Those who 
received the original charter and who built up the college were connected 
with the New York Presbyterian Synod, but no organic connection with 
Presbyterianism was adopted. From 1766 Presbyterians generally 
united in support of the college, and in 1812 the General Seminary estab- 
lished its Theological Seminary at Princeton, though the latter is uncon- 
nected with the college. Nassau Hall has been famous in the historical 
annals of the United States. During the Revolution it was occupied 
by the American and the British troops as barracks, and also as a 
hospital. In 1783 the Continental Congress met in the hall. In the same 
year the college commencement was attended by Washington and the 
members of Congress, at which time Washington presented the college 
with a donation for damages inflicted upon the building during the war. 

By means of donations from numerous liberal benefactors the institu- 
tion has gradually extended, libraries, museums, laboratories, observa- 
tories, a commencement hall of great beauty and elaborately fitted 
athletic fields and gymnasium having been added. The college grounds 
now cover 225 acres, adorned with lawns, fine old elms and handsome 
buildings. Most of the students live on the campus in dormitories 
which furnish excellent accommodations. Under the administration of 
Dr. McCosh the college reached its present dimensions and importance. 
Dr. McCosh was succeeded by Francis Landey Patton. D.D., LL.D., 
who was inaugurated in 1888. In 1899-1900 there were 85 instructors 
and 1,100 students. 

Early in the history of the Greek-letter fraternities Princeton was 
recognized as a field for the extension of chapters. As early as 1843 an 
attempt was made to establish a chapter, which, however, had a short 
life of three years; a second attempt in 1845 met with better success, the 
chapter existing until 1857, when it was suspended on account of faculty 
opposition. The third fraternity to establish a chapter at Princeton 
was Zeta Psi, in 1850. The records and correspondence show that for 
over a quarter of a century the existence and organization of the chap- 
ter at Princeton were maintained in the face of much opposition and 
discouragement. Of twelve fraternities which had chapters at Prince- 
ton, Zeta Psi was maintained for the longest time. The Omicron Chap- 
ter owes its existence principally to the activity of the Delta Chapter at 
Rutgers. Jonathan Longstreet, a student at Princeton, was initiated 
a member of the fraternity by the Rutgers Chapter May 14, 1850, and 
immediately started to pledge men for a chapter at Princeton. The 
chapter was formally established by the initiation at New Brunswick, 
June 3, 1850, of William Bull, Barnes Compton, Hugh William Henry, 
Edwards Caldwell Heyer and Alexander Hamilton Phillips, all of the 


class of '51. No further initiations were held until the spring of the 
next year, at which time the membership was increased by the addition 
of twelve men, chosen from all classes, the Sophomore, Junior and 

With the exception of the first few years of the history of the 
Omicron, the membership was small, seldom exceeding a dozen men. 
Soon after its establishment a successful growth was hampered by the 
stringent laws adopted by the college authorities against Greek-letter 
fraternities. The organization was, however, maintained in the expec- 
tation that the opposition, not at this time confined to Princeton, would 
cease, and the fraternity system would be recognized as part of the life 
of the college community. Under Dr. McCosh's administration, the oppo- 
sition, instead of diminishing, became more severe; the continued existence 
of the chapter, even in secret, became unwise; faculty action made mem- 
bership of the college and of a fraternity at Princeton absolutely incom- 
patible. The chapter in December, 1875, disbanded as an affiliated 
member of the Zeta Psi Fraternity. In the expectation that a reversal 
of the attitude of the college authorities might enable the fraternity to 
continue at Princeton, the Grand Chapter, at its meeting held in Phila- 
delphia, July 12, 1876, authorized the Delta, Sigma and Tau Chapters 
to initiate into the fraternity Princeton students duly elected and offi- 
cially presented by the members of the fraternity at Princeton. The 
fraternity thus continued for a number of years to be represented by 
members initiated at other chapters. Conditions, however, remaining 
unfavorable, it was voted at the Grand Chapter meeting at Syracuse, Jan- 
uary, 1882, that the Omicron Chapter be honorably discontinued as an 
active chapter. A few men were initiated by the Sigma Chapter after 
this date under the authority conferred by the action of 1876. This privi- 
lege was soon withdrawn and all attempts at securing representation at 
Princeton ended with the class of 1887.

To "The Publick Academy in the City of Philadelphia," founded 
November 13, 1749, chartered on July 13, 1753, by the Colonial Pro- 
prietors as "The Academy and Charitable School in the Province 
of Pennsylvania," and on June 16, 1755, as "The College, Academy and 
Charitable School of Philadelphia," and its later created (September 
27, 1799) rival and intended successor, "The University of the State of 
Pennsylvania," when united by an act of the General Assembly of 
Pennsylvania of September 30, 1791, the present University of Pennsyl- 
vania traces its foundation. 

It has been located for by far the major portion of its existence at 
but two places from 1802 to 1872 at the northwest corner of Ninth and 
Chestnut Streets, the present site of the United States Post Office, and 
since October 11, 1872, in West Philadelphia, on the magnificent expanse 
of ground which has rendered possible the addition of many buildings, 
now numbering twenty-five, which give it a superb group of homes for 
the effective maintenance of thirteen branches of university teaching 
and research, and afford its students perfect accommodations for every 
phase of university life and endeavor. 

Prior to 1849 only local, non-secret, literary societies existed, and at 
the time of the introduction of fraternities, the Philomathean Society, 
founded in 1813, and the Zelosophic Society, founded in 1831 "Philo" 
and "Zelo, " as they are always called were keen rivals in their work 
and in their claims to student favor, and while the coming of the Greek 
letter men doubtless took from them much of the social side of their 
activity, the fraternities did not destroy them, but only created and fos- 
tered new elements in the student body, and upward of seventy Zetes 
have been active in their work and management. 

But one fraternity antedates Zeta Psi at Pennsylvania, and our 
Sigma Chapter is the oldest fraternity chapter at Pennsylvania with 
continuous existence since foundation. 

The inception of Zeta Psi at Pennsylvania dates from January 1, 
1849, when the twin brothers Edward W. and Samuel E. Appleton 
entered the class of 1852 at the beginning of its second term. They had 
intended to enter Rutgers College, but the removal of their parents to 
Philadelphia in the Fall of 1848 led to a change in their plans. In the 
summer of 1850 they visited New Brunswick, and there found in the 
membership of the Delta some of their schoolboy friends, who imbued 
them with the spirit of Zeta Psi and initiated them into its mysteries, that 
they might return to Pennsylvania as missionaries. Their enthusiasm 
was great, and their earnest efforts met with quick recognition from 
worthy men, so that by early Fall the consent of the Grand Chapter was 
obtained and the first initiation set for September 4, 1850. On that date 
John Benjamin Yates Sommers, one of the founders of Zeta Psi, and then 
$ A, Peter Warren Rouss, of the Delta, also a Grand Officer, and the 
brothers Appleton conducted the formal foundation of the Alpha of 
Pennsylvania "in a quaint building still standing on the east side 
of Seventh Street, near Sansom" (so described by Bro. Edward 
W. Appleton), and initiated William Lehman Wells, '52, Fairman 
Rogers, '53, John H. Tingley, '53, and Gideon Scull, Jr., '53. At that 
meeting the organization of the chapter was completed and four new 
members elected; Francis A. Lewis, '52, William F. Biddle, '52, J. P. 
Farley Shippen, '53, and William Moss, '53, who were duly initiated 
three days later, when J. Johnson Brown, '51, and Henry Augustus 
Duhring, '52, were elected to membership. To the roll of the chapter 
during the first year of its existence the following names were also 
added: Robert E. Randall, '53, John Andrews Harris, '52, William 


Blanchard, '54, Alfred G. Baker, '51, and William F. Rogers, '55. Of 
the founders, the brothers Appleton and Fairman Rogers still survive 
and six of the eleven later initiates of the first year. 

The brothers Appleton left Pennsylvania in their Junior year and 
were graduated at Rutgers in 1852, being graduated in Theology in 
1857, and later receiving the D. D. degree from Rutgers. They have 
always been prominent in the work of the Protestant Episcopal Church. 
Rogers has risen to prominence in engineering and mechanics and has 
been a prolific contributor to the literature of those branches of science. 
He was a professor at Pennsylvania from 1856 to 1871, and a trustee from 
1871 to 1885. Baker, Brown and Duhring have been prominent in mer- 
cantile life, Wells and Moss in medicine, Harris in the ministry, 
Randall in law, Biddle in engineering and music, and Blanchard as a 
publisher. Bro. Shippen died in April, 1853, and was the first Zete for 
whom the Sigma men draped their pins. 

At the time of the founding of the Sigma the total number of students 
at Pennsylvania was about 130, and in 1876 it had increased to above 
200, with 32 instructors, while in 1894, when Dr. William Pepper, '62, 
our honored and lamented first Zete Provost, resigned after 13 years of 
preeminently successful service, the students numbered 700, with 96 
instructors. Under his worthy and distinguished classmate and suc- 
cessor, our Bro. Charles Custis Harrison, '62, over 2,600 students are 
annually on the rolls. 

From the earliest days of the Sigma, the interest in all its work was 
intense and earnest. The "pick of the college" formed its membership, 
and its minutes, complete from foundation, are rich in details of the 
activity of its members in the literary exercises, debates and all frater- 
nity work. The first correspondence was conducted with the Delta and 
Zeta in relation to the establishment of the Chi, and in August, 1851, the 
chapter was first represented at a session of the Grand Chapter, sending 
Randall and Scull to the convention at New Brunswick, where the 
chapter received its designation as the Sigma. It was again repre- 
sented at the convention at Poughkeepsie, in 1852, when the founding of 
the Rho was authorized, and later was influential in the establishment 
of the Theta at Union and the Tau at Lafayette, the latter having been 
established by Bros. William Platt Pepper, '57, and Henry Ashurst, 
'58, of the Sigma, committee appointed for that purpose. Delegates were 
regularly sent to all the conventions, except in 1864, until the end of the 
civil war, and in the last twenty-five years the Sigma has rarely failed 
to send representatives to the sessions of the Grand Chapter, many of 
whom have taken a prominent part in its deliberations and legislation. 
Four sessions of the Grand Chapter have been held under the auspices of 
the Sigma, in 1876, 1880, 1885 and 1892, all important in fraternity 
work, and pronounced by our visiting brethren highly successful in their 
social features and notable for cordial hospitality. It is the hope of the 
Sigma that on March 9th and 10th, when it celebrates its semi-centen- 
nial in 1900 by again receiving the Grand Chapter, the occasion will 
excel all prior conventions in Philadelphia in numbers, good work, 
enthusiasm and good-fellowship in the bonds of T K <P. 

Upon the roll of Patriarchs the following names from the Sigma 
appear: # A, Edward Coppee Mitchell, '55, and William Platt Pepper, 
'57; A $ A, Robert E. Randall, '53, Fairman Rogers, '53, Edwin North 
Benson, '59, Henry Pepper, '65, Charles E. Ronaldson, '68, Joseph H. 
Burroughs, '72, and Edwards S. Dunn, '87; 2 A, Franklin Scott, '72, 
H. La Barre Jayne, '79, and Charles Tyler Cowperthwait, '87; A 2 A, 
J. Johnson Brown, '51, William Pepper, '62, and Gustavus Remak, Jr., 
'82; r A, Henry A. Duhring, '52, Robert E. Randall, '53, John W. 
Hoffman, '66, and Gustavus B. Homer, '68; 2 p A, J. Somers Smith, 
Jr., '87. 

To the seventeen men who joined the Sigma during its first year 
there were added fifty-nine from the classes of 1853 to 1865, inclusive, 


among them names which grace the annals of industrial, professional 
and social life. The scope of this sketch permits of more detailed refer- 
ence to but few of them. 

The life of William Pepper, '62, the distinguished physician, teacher 
and author, was devoted to the progress of his native city, and if fully 
told would almost be a history of the Medical School at the University 
for twenty-five years, and the present greatness of Pennsylvania is a 
monument to his creative genius while he was Provost. Under the guid- 
ing hand of his successor as Provost, Charles Custis Harrison, '62 (a 
trustee since 1876), the University has progressed with a mighty strength 
in its work, buildings, endowment and number of students. E. Coppee 
Mitchell, '55, the talented lawyer and author, was professor in and Dean 
of the Law School from 1873 until his death in 1886. Thomas McKean, 
'62, was prominent in finance and as a benefactor of the University and 
dear to the hearts of all Sigma men for his warm devotion to their 

Of the seventy-six Zetes from the classes of 1851 to 1865, seventy- 
three were living at the dawn of the civil war, and of these no less than 
thirty entered the strife. Of this number, twenty-eight performed 
honorable service and happily survived: Class of 1852, Capt. William F. 
Biddle; class of 1853, Robert E. Randall, Sergt. Fainnan Rogers, Cols. 
James C. Biddle and Gideon Scull, Jr., and Surgeons John K. Kane 
and William Moss; class of 1854, Lieut.-Col. Frank M. Etting, Lieut. 
William Blanchard and Surgeon George H. Humphreys; class of 1855, 
Col. George H. Waring; class of 1856, Charles C. Jackson; class of 1857, 
George R. Wood, Maj. Oswald C. Jackson, Capt. George H. Johnston, Jr. , 
and George Gilpin; class of 1858, Henry Ashhurst; class of 1859, Edwin 
X. Benson. Col. William McMichael; class of 1860, Col. Francis Wister; 
class of 1862, Lieuts. George Pepper, Skipwith Wilmer and Reuben 
Etting; class of 1864, Charles R. Colwell, Washington H. Gilpin, Alfred 
C. Harrison and James B. Leonard, and class of 1865, Theodore M. 

Daniel Penrose Buckley, of the class of 1855, captain of the Third 
New Jersey U. S. Volunteers, died in the battle of Gaines Mills, Va., 
on July 4th, 1862, and Robert Coles, of the class of 1857, a captain in 
the Confederate army, in the battle of Roanoke Island, N. C., on Febru- 
ary 8, 1862. 

From the classes of 1866 to 1877, sixty-nine men joined Zeta Psi, 
with no less than thirty-five from the classes of '72, '73 and '74, and the 
prosperity and activity of the chapter were unabated, but from the 
succeeding three classes only six men were taken, while the class of 1878 
shares with '61 the misfortune of being the only classes at Pennsylvania 
from 1851 to 1902 without a Zete on their rolls. Thus ensued the only 
dark days the Sigma has known, but they were only a passing cloud 
dispelled by the earnest work of active elders, and from the class of 1879 
seven enthusiastic Zetes were taken to start the new tide of prosperity 
which has never ebbed. 

It was at this time that an earnest interest in athletics began at 
Pennsylvania, and of the sixty-three Zetes in the classes from 1880 to 
1890, a majority were active oa the track, in rowing, football, baseball 
or cricket. Ellis Ames Ballard, '81, won the half-mile at the intercolle- 
giate championship in 188O and the 440-yards dash in 1881, and George 
C. Thayer, '81, the running broad jump in 1879 and 1880. In track ath- 
letics at the Pennsylvania sports twelve Zetes won no less than fifty first 
prizes in this decade. Twelve Zetes played on the 'varsity football 
teams, two as captain, with a number more as substitutes and many 
representatives on all the class teams. On the 'varsity nines the Sigma 
had ten men, one as captain, and three on the crews, while on the cricket 
eleven twenty-two Zetes represented the 'varsity, nine as captains, not 
less than three Zetes playing in any year and in 1884 nine. While some 
of the Sigma men from the later classes have also attained prominence 


in athletics, the energies of most of them have been devoted more to the 
literary and social activities of University life. Ten Zetes held office in 
the Athletic Association prior to its incorporation in 1882, at which time 
Thomas McKean, '62, was elected its first president, and Edwin N. 
Benson, '59, and E. Coppee Mitchell, '55, vice-presidents. Eight Zetes 
have since been directors. 

An interesting phase in the history of the Sigma is its work in sus- 
taining the Omicron. The records show the initiation of two men in 
1865 and three in 1876, and a number under the authority granted by the 
Grand Chapter in 1877 to the Sigma, Delta and Tau. When this au- 
thority was later restricted to the Sigma alone, and until it was with- 
drawn, a small but earnest band of Zetes was kept alive at Princeton, 
which for years waged an active though unequal contest against the un- 
yielding prejudice of the faculty. 

The home of the Sigma has been at but eight places in fifty years. 
Until 1856 on the west side of Sixth Street above Spruce, where in 1854 
the Chapter experienced its only depredation by robbers. The next 
move was to a location nearer to the University, the west side of Tenth 
Street, north of Market, then in 1858 to 1019 Walnut Street, and from 
there in 1861 to the south side of Walnut Street, below Ninth. In 1867 
the westward move was made to the southeast corner of Juniper and 
Chestnut Streets, and the same year records the Sigma's first banquet 
and its only fire. Then the home was moved in 1870 to 1315 Chestnut 
Street, whence the move was made in 1877 to the northeast corner of 
Thirteenth and Chestnut Streets, the last " rooms" of the Sigma, where 
it remained until its move in October, 1897, into its permanent home, 
provided by the Philadelphia Association of Zeta Psi, at Nos. 3337 and 
3339 Walnut Street, its chapter house within the shadow of the Univer- 
sity. Here, too, the Association, formed on February 16, 1888, and 
since then managing the successful banquets annually held by the Phil- 
adelphia Zetes, incorporated on September 20, 1897, furnishes a cozy 
retreat for its members and visiting brethren, and all honor is due by 
Zeta Psi to Brother J. Somers Smith, Jr. , '87, and the ten earnest Zetes 
who were his colleagues on the building committee. 

Much that deserves elaboration beyond the space allotted to this his- 
tory, can only be suggested by statistics. Zetes of the Sigma have been 
prominent in every branch of student life, seventy have been members 
of the literary societies and fifteen editors of the college journals; they 
have taken forty-four prizes in University courses and furnished a dozen 
Commencement speakers, three have received the "spoon," given to the 
most popular man in each class, and the classes have been few at Penn- 
sylvania which have not numbered Zetes among their class officers, 
Record editors and Class Day speakers. To nine were assigned promi- 
nent roles in the notable presentation of " The Acarnians " in Greek in 
1886. Sixteen are members of the famous "Mask and Wig Club," five 
of whom were among its founders. 

The members of the Sigma number in all 290 ; of these 65 have 

Bare statistics can but partly indicate the scope of their activity: 
lawyers, 52; doctors, 26; ministers, 10; engineers, 20; authors, 23; edi- 
tors, 4, and professors at Pennsylvania, 14. The names of Sigma Zetes 
are found on the rolls of the patriotic societies of America, the histori- 
cal, antiquarian, scientific, medical, legal, charitable and social organi- 
zations of Philadelphia, and the records of these societies attest the 
activity of the Sigma men in their work. 

It is a fitting ending to this brief history of the Sigma to record the 
names of her younger men who, with patriotic ardor, responded eagerly 
to the call for volunteers in the late war with Spain. In the " City 
Troop," Sergt. Robert E. Glendenning, '88, Corp. George C. Thayer, 
'81, and privates William I. Forbes, '89, Henry S. Godfrey, '95, Fran- 
cis L. Cramp, '96, and Persifor Frazer, Jr., '96. 


In "Battery A," Surgeon George I. McLeod, '91, Lieut. Norman 
Mac Leod, '93, Corporals Crawford Coates, Jr., '87, and Arthur H. 
Brockie, '95, and privates Albert B. Kelley, '92, Carl N. Martin, '96, 
J. Mauran Rhodes, '96, J. Walter Steel, '99, and B. Franklin Pepper, 
'01. A. Wilson Norris, Jr., '91, Lieut, and Adjutant of the 8th Penn. 
Infantry, and later Captain and Ass't Adjutant-Gen., died in service 
Jan. 15, 1899. Lloyd C. Griscom, '91, served as a staff officer with the 
rank of Captain; Joseph P. Tunis, '86, as Surgeon in the 1st Penn., 
and Robert P. Robins, '76, formerly Surgeon in the 2d Penn., is now 
a Brigade-Surgeon in the Philippines. 

Even from this brief sketch there must appear a worthy fruition of 
steadfast and untiring efforts by earnest men, animated by a spirit 
worthy of emulation by Zetes of the Sigma for generations to come.

Colby College was established by the Baptist denomination in 1820 
in the town of Waterville, Maine, on the banks of the Kennebec River. 
Its early name was the Maine Literary and Theological Institution. 
The distinctly theological element in the instruction, however, was 
not long continued, and the institution soon became general in its 
character. The name became Waterville College. The number of 
students in 1850, when the Chi was founded, was seventy-four, practi- 
cally the same as the average number in yearly attendance for the 
previous thirty years. 

The students in these early days, after the fashion of the 
time, maintained two local, non-secret, literary societies, the Ero- 
sophian Adelphi and the Literary Fraternity. These societies lived 
on for many years after the secret fraternities became popular, 
but were gradually supplanted and given up entirely in the middle 

In the fall of 1849, under the leadership of Thomas H. Garnsey, of 
'53, a local society was organized and named the Alpha Omega. This 
society met in members' rooms and occasionally during the summer of 
1850 in appointed places out in the fields. 

Zeta Psi soon came to the attention of the men, and the good 
position already attained by this young fraternity, then but three 
years old, having been founded in the New York University in 1847, 
as well as bright prospects for future growth, led them to apply for 
a charter. 

This was granted, and on November 19, 1850, J. S. Barry and E. 
J. Peck, of the Zeta Chapter, at Williams College, being duly author- 
ized, initiated the following men : Thomas H. Garnsey, A. B. Clark, 
W. H. Tucker, H. P. Kimball, W. G. Frye, B. F. Kelly, C. H. Davis, 
H. M. Pierce, Alfred Owen, S. R. Thurston, R. F. Stratton, J. F. 
Baldwin, Nathan Butler and C. W. Lander. The ceremonies occur- 
red at No. 13 Elmwood Hotel. In the same place on the following 
day two more were added to the mystic circle R. J. Knight and Rod- 
ney Welch. Officers were immediately elected and installed. The 
Alpha of Maine was then pronounced "duly and legally chartered, 
initiated and officered." This designation was used for about a year. 
On October 25, 1851, the letter Chi was chosen by the brothers under 
the authority of the Grand Chapter, and by this name has the Chap- 
ter since been known. 

Thus Zeta Psi was launched at Colby with sixteen strong men as 
charter members. Eight of these are still living. Three of them, A. 
Owen, J. F. Baldwin and S. R. Thurston, were present at the reunion 
in 1898, and delightfully entertained the younger brothers with reminis- 
cences of the old days. 

This favorable beginning was prophetic of a decade of steady growth 
and prosperity. A lodge-room was fitted up in Marston Block, now 
known as Flood's Block, a brick building on the west side of Main 
Street, near the Unitarian Church. This was occupied till about the 
close of the Civil War. 

During the course of the Chapter's second year, beginning with 
the opening of the college in September, 1851, fifteen men were ad- 
mitted, constituting the largest number of initiates that any single 
year of the Chapter's history has known. Among these fifteen was 
Nelson Dingley, whose death on January 13, 1899, the entire country 
was called to mourn. The active membership has never been so large 
as during this year of 1851-'52, when there were twenty-seven names 
on the roll. The next largest roll was that of 1859-'60, when there 


were twenty-six names, and the third largest in 1897-'98, when there 
were twenty-three. The Chi has generally been conservative in the 
matter of numbers. As the number of students in Colby has always 
been small, this spirit greatly aided the Chi in securing excellent men. 
She has, however, always had a goodly number of old members back at 
the beginning of each college year. This number has averaged about 
twelve, and has rfever fallen below seven, save in the war years, 1863 
and 1864, and in 1872. The average size of the Chapter before 1866 was 
nineteen; since that time it has been seventeen. The average size of 
class delegation has been six. The entire enrollment of the Chapter at 
the present time is three hundred and thirty-five. Of these men two 
hundred and fifty-nine are living. 

During this first decade of the Chapter's history many of the best 
men in college were initiated, and the Chapter had excellent standing 
in all the various lines of college activity. Meetings were held regu- 
larly every two weeks. A literary programme was generally rendered, 
and special attention was given to debate. It is interesting to read in 
the record for July 17, 1852, that Nelson Dingley took part in a general 
discussion of the question, "Resolved, that this Government Ought to 
Sustain a Protective Tariff." It is not stated on which side he argued, 
but it would be easy to imagine. The presiding officer decided the 
question in the affirmative. During this period the Chapter was scrupu- 
lous in the minutias of good order, and there are recorded two by-laws as 
follows: "Any brother absent for any other reasons than those above 
specified (sickness or absence from town) shall be subject to a fine of 
twenty-five cents." "Any brother not presenting himself within ten 
minutes after the opening of the chapter shall be subject to a fine of ten 
cents, unless a satisfactory excuse be rendered to the Chapter." There 
were occasional lapses, however, and at one time, when " the brethren" 
had "assembled at a rather later hour than usual," Simon S. Brown 
"expatiated on the duty of being punctual." It may be stated here 
that the Chapter has continued up to the present time to maintain liter- 
ary exercises of a high order. These are given ordinarily at every regular 
meeting. Regular meetings are now held once a week on Wednesday 
evenings, the change from twice a week having been made in 1868. 

The history of the Chi now approaches the dark days of the War of 
the Rebellion. The brothers took a keen personal interest in the coming 
crisis. On March 23, 1861, Brothers Hopkins and Marble formally 
debated the question, "Has a State a right to secede ?" Then ensued 
a very spirited general discussion, lasting for two hours, in which par- 
ticipated nearly all the brothers. On April 7th, at the next regular 
meeting, was discussed the question, "Is the coercion of a State prac- 
ticable ?" This was followed on April 21st by the question, " Is it the 
duty of students to volunteer ?" Two days later, owing to the prema- 
ture closing of the college term, a special meeting of the Chi was called. 
All the brothers joined in singing "America." After this William 
A. Hatch, '61, who, with several other brothers, was about to leave 
for the war, feelingly addressed the Chapter. Many others followed 
with remarks that were filled with patriotism and loyalty, and the 
meeting closed amid fervent expressions of Godspeed to the departing 

Now and again during the next four years the Chapter was called 
upon to mourn for brothers who had given their lives in sacrifice to coun- 
try. The reunion banquet of 1865, held in Masonic Hall, was largely 
attended by elders, and among these were many returned soldiers. It 
was a time of hearty greeting, but the occasion was saddened by sincere 
sorrow for absent ones who would never return. R. W. Dunn, of '68, as 
Marshal of the Senior Class of that year, formed and conducted the first 
Memorial Day procession to Pine Grove Cemetery, in Waterville, to 
decorate the soldiers' graves. The procession was headed by the college 
students, and continued by the citizens. The G. A. R. had not then been 


established in Waterrille, but a post was organised later on and named 
in honor of William S. Heath, Chi, '55, who was killed at Games' Mill 
in 1862. In Memorial Hall, on the Colby campus, is a beautiful repro- 
duction in marble of the Lion of Lucerne. Beneath it is a tablet erected 
by the alumni of the college in memory of their fellows who perished 
"pro republicas integritate. " Thereon are inscribed twenty names, and 
among- them are eight which the Chi especially delights to honor, the 
names of her own beloved sons. They are as follows: John B. Wilson, 
'54; William S. Heath, '55; Sabine Emery, '58; William T. Parker, '58; 
William W. West, '60; Asher C. Hinds, '63; George C. Getchell, '63; 
Leonard Butler, '65. 

Out of a total membership of one hundred and thirty-two at the end 
of the war the Chi had furnished to the cause fifty men. One of these was 
a lieutenant-colonel in the Confederate Army. Oliver C. Gray, '55, of 
Little Rock, Arkansas. Of the forty-nine in the Union Army there were 
seven privates, one hospital steward, four surgeons, one brigade surgeon, 
one paymaster, four corporals, one provost marshal, one sergeant, four 
sergeant-majors, one second lieutenant, five first lieutenants, eight cap- 
tains, four majors (one a brevet lieutenant-colonel), four lieutenant- 
colonels (two brevet brigadier-generals and one a brevet colonel), and 
four colonels (one a brevet brigadier-general and one a brevet major- 

The Chapter was in sore straits in 1864. In the fall of that year 
only two brothers returned to college. Some who would naturally have 
returned were at the front; Leonard Butler, of '65, had been killed in 
service at Beaufort, S. C.; A. R. Burrill, of '65, and R. S. Hinds, of '66, 
had died, the latter in college; several had left to study professions or 
enter other pursuits. The two who remained were Amos B. Lunt and 
John C. Irish, both of '67. The prospect was dark and the condition 
discouraging. But these two worked with characteristic Zeta Psi spirit, 
and the Chapter was saved. They were magnificently assisted by sev- 
eral resident elders, who contributed much both to the financial support 
of the Chapter and to the interest and success of the meetings. To 
George A. Wilson, of '62, in particular the Chapter owes a lasting debt 
of gratitude. Brother Wilson was often present, and for a considerable 
period of 1864-'65 acted as Phi. Early in this year three men were 
initiated R. W. Dunn, F. R. M. Gillpatrick and Austin Thomas. 
There was thus an active membership of five. Later in the year George 
L. Chandler, O. D. Seavey and C. C. Couillard were added" to the num- 
ber. The fall of 1865 opened with seven brothers back; nine were 
initiated during the year. About this time the lodge-room in Marston 
Block, occupied by the Chi since 1852, was abandoned, and new quarters 
secured in Phenix Block, the building in which the office of the Water- 
ville Mail has been located for so many years. These rooms were 
retained till 1872. In the fall of 1866 eight returned, and six more were 
soon received. The Chapter, now well on its feet again, entered upon a 
period of quiet prosperity, which has lasted without a break to the 
present time. 

The early part of this period was marked by a special interest in 
athletics. The first regular baseball club was organized and a team 
put into the field. R. W. Dunn, of '68, was the first captain and 
pitcher; P. S. Warren, of '69, was catcher; F. M. Wilson and C. W. 
Foster were prominent players, the latter said to be one of the best all- 
around men ever seen on the Colby diamond. Intercollegiate baseball 
was instituted at Colby in 1877. Since that time, with the exception of 
three years, the Chi has been represented on the nine by from one to 
three men. In this connection the names of Walter C. Emerson, '84; 
Byron Boyd, '86; E. F. Goodwin, '87; F. A. Gilmore, '90, and O. L. Hall, 
'93, in particular are remembered with enthusiasm. Football was first 
fully established at Colby in 1891, and the Chi took an active interest 
from the start. She has furnished the manager four times, and has been 


represented on the team each year of the seven in '91, '93 and '98 by one 
man; in '95 by two, and in '94, '96 and '97 by three. In 1895, C. K. 
Brooks, '98, was elected captain, and reelected in '96 and '97. During 
these three years the team was remarkably successful, and in 1897 went 
through the season without a single defeat. 

In scholarship the Chi has stood well. Out of the twenty-one first 
prizes awarded since 1872 for general excellence in preparation for col- 
lege five have been won by Zetes. Out of eleven second prizes one has 
come to Zeta Psi. In 1896 Phi Beta Kappa was established at Colby, 
and in accordance with the college records members of previous classes 
were elected to membership. The Chi has one man from each of the fol- 
lowing years: 1850, '53, '56, '57, '59, '61, '62, '63, '64, '74, '76, '77, '81, 
'85, '86, '87, '89, '90, '91, '92, '93, '98; two from each of the following: 
1878, '79, '80, '82, '83, '94, '96. From the class of 1858 all the four mem- 
bers chosen were Zetes S. S. Brown, C. P. Baldwin, A. L. Hinds and 
E. W. Pattison. There are in all two hundred and twenty male mem- 
bers, of whom forty are Zetes. 

In composition and oratory the Chi has made a still better record. 
Out of thirty-four prizes awarded to members of the Senior Class since 
1864 for work in composition Zetes have won nine. Out of thirty-seven 
first prizes for Junior orations, fourteen, and out of the same number of 
second prizes six have fallen to Zetes. In Sophomore declamation Zetes 
have won twelve first and seven second prizes out of a possible thirty- 
nine in each case. In Freshman reading there have been twenty-five 
contests, Zetes winning first place seven times, and second seven times. 
In the Freshman exhibition of the class of 1901 the Chi received the 
unusual honor of having its entire delegation of five men appointed to 
participate, although there were only nine appointments in all. F. W. 
Newcombe received first prize. In composition and oratory, therefore, it 
will be seen that the Zetes have won nearly a third of all the first prizes 
and a fifth of the second, though her men have constituted less than a 
sixth of the men in college since 1862, when these prizes began to be 
given. The average yearly attendance of men for the past thirty years 
has been one hundred and seventeen, while, as already stated, the 
average membership of the Chapter for the same period has been 

In debate also the Chi has secured an excellent reputation. The 
Junior Debate was established in 1889 as an annual institution. Six 
men take part each year. The Chi has been represented three times by 
one man, and four times by two men. Last year at the Intercollegiate 
Debate between Bates and Colby two of the three men who made up the 
Colby team were members of the Chi F. F. Lawrence, '00, and H. C. 
Libby, '02. This debate had been held three times previously, and each 
time the Chi had furnished one speaker. In the Sophomore Debate and 
the College Debate, both of recent establishment, the Chapter has taken 
part and received recognition. 

In the matter of student publications the Chi has done her full share 
of duty and received her full share of honor. An annual called the 
Watervillian was published each year from '62 to '66 under the conduct 
of four associate editors. Of the entire twenty for these five years seven 
were Zetes. In 1867 the name of the college was changed from Waterville 
College to Colby University. The Watervillian then became the Colby 
Oracle. This has been issued every year up to the present date. From 
'67 to '75 it was under four associate editors, of whom one each year was 
a Zete, save in '69, when the Chapter had no representative on the board, 
and in '75, when she had two. In '69 the Chi issued alone the Colby 
Chronicle and Zeta Psi Annual. G. C. Fisher and C. W. Chase were the 
editors. This publication was the first to be issued in Colby by a single 
fraternity. It was not, however, continued. From '76 to '83 the Oracle 
was conducted by two associate editors, of whom one each year was a 
Zete, except in '81. Since '84 the Oracle has been under the manage- 


ment of a single editor-in-chief. Of the sixteen men who have performed 
this duty eight have belonged to the Chi. Of the twenty-three editors of 
the Colby Echo, published from '77 to the present time, first as a monthly, 
later as a bi-weekly, and now as a weekly, eight have been Zetes. 

In the successes of her sons along these various lines the Chi has 
ever rejoiced. She has stood, however, along with her sister Chapters, 
not primarily for success, but for good fellowship and social helpfulness. 
To underrate or despise the former would be affectation, but she can say 
with all sincerity that she has sought the latter first. She has valued 
men not so much for what they can do, as for what they are in charac- 
ter, in congeniality, in cheerfulness, in friendliness, in brotherhood. 
Herein lies the undefinable Zete spirit which the Chi feels her many 
years of history have enabled her to understand and to represent. Evi- 
dences of loyalty to this spirit she cherishes more fondly than the record 
of her honors. The annual reunion was established as early as 1852. 
This has been well attended. In 1898, for example, twenty-seven elders 
were present, and in 1899 twenty-two, besides all the active brothers and 
a representative of the Kappa each year. It has been a source of great 
strength and inspiration to the Chapter. Through all the reminiscences 
has rung the genuine Zeta Psi note, well expressed in the recent words 
of a charter member: "I formed the best and most lasting friendships of 
my life right here, and my interest in the society, and my care for its 
growth and honor, do not decline with passing years." 

" Firm shall be thy name forever, 

Glorious Zeta Psi; 
True hearts shall forget thee never, 
Glorious Zeta Psi." 

A Chapter House has been in the thought of the brothers for many 
years, and in 1891 the Zeta Psi Chapter House Association was incor- 
porated with F. C. Thayer, '65, as president. In keeping of this cor- 
poration there is already a good-sized fund, augmented yearly by gifts 
from brothers and delegations, and it is hoped, therefore, that before 
many years the Chapter House will pass from dream to reality. 

Till then the Chi will probably remain in her present quarters in 
Burleigh Block, on the corner of Main and Temple Streets. This block 
was very recently built, and the Chi rooms were designed especially for 
the Chapter, and occupy the whole of the third floor. These rooms con- 
stitute the Chi's fifth regular home. The first two have already been 
mentioned. The third was in Header Block, owned by Nathaniel 
Meader, '63. This was occupied from '72 to '84. With a very fraternal 
spirit, Brother Meader assisted in fitting up the rooms, and during the 
entire period of occupancy materially helped the active brothers. The 
fourth home cherished at present, probably, by more members of the 
Chapter than any other, as it was occupied for a longer period than any 
other except the first was in Barrelle Block, on Main Street, opposite 
the Common. It was occupied from '84 to '97. The present home is very 
satisfactory, and is by far the best the Chi has ever lived in. The rooms 
are well furnished and decorated, and present in themselves an epitome 
of the Chapter's history and an evidence of the loyal spirit of the 
brothers. Among other gifts which the rooms contain are an organ 
given by the elder brothers present at the twenty-fifth reunion, a sword 
and scabbard properly adorned with Zeta Psi emblems, given by C. E. 
Meleney, of '76, and a safe given by A. M. Foss, '85. Upon the walls 
are pictures of a large number of the Chi brothers. All the recent dele- 
gations appear entire, and there are representatives of every delegation 
from the very beginning of the history. The space over the Phi's desk 
is occupied by an elegantly framed crayon group of the seven Zetes who 
were graduated in 1898. It may be said appropriately in connection with 
this account of the Chapter's lodge-rooms that the brothers have already, 
to some slight extent, approached the advantages of a Chapter House in 


that the North division of South College, one of the college dormitories, 
has been largely appropriated to the use of Zeta Psi for private rooms. 
The Chapter has also for many years maintained a boarding club at 264 
Main Street. 

During recent years the Chi has taken a prominent part in social 
affairs, and has thus been in full harmony with the later administration 
of the college, which has sought to make more of the social element in 
training and culture than has ever been done in the history of Colby. 
Particular events well remembered in Waterville are a reception given 
in '93, a reception at the Elmwood Hotel in '94 and a general reception 
at Soper's Hall in the fall of '95, which was one of the finest ever ten- 
dered by a fraternity at Colby, and was a remarkable success. The '98 
delegation in its Senior year successfully conducted the Midwinter 
Promenade and the Senior Hop. Perhaps it is to be regarded as a 
social event in view of the fact that rowing has never figured prominently 
in the list of Colby sports, that in 1893 Zeta Psi built a handsome boat- 
house on the banks of the Messalonskee, a stream justly famed in local 
tradition as the scene of many happy boating and picnic parties. 

The Chi has been from the beginning very cordial in her relations 
with Zeta Psi at large, has taken a great interest in the expansion of 
the fraternity, and has in turn been greatly helped by the interest and 
sympathy of the other Chapters. The Lambda, of Bowdoin, and the Chi 
have been especially bound together, and an initiation in one Chapter 
has generally been attended by at least one representative from the 
other. On these occasions the familiar Zeta Psi marching song is 
usually rendered with a verse in honor of "the Lambda and the Chi." 
In 1894 a joint initiation banquet was held by the two Chapters at 
Augusta. The warm feeling between these Chapters is due not only to 
their proximity, but to the fact that the Chi is the parent Chapter, the 
Lambda having been founded in 1866 by George L. Chandler, '68. 

The Chi is also the parent of the Psi at Dartmouth, through Nelson 
Dingley ; of the Theta, at Union, through W. H. Baldwin, and of the Xi, 
at the University of Michigan, through Liberty E. Holden. The Psi, at 
Dartmouth, and the Epsilon, at Brown, both of which suspended their 
activity on account of the Civil War, were both reestablished by Chi 
men, the Psi by R. W. Dunn, '68, chairman of the committee for reestab- 
lishment, and the Epsilon by C. A. Parker, '86. Chi men also served 
on the committee for the establishment of the Omega, at the University 
of Chicago, and of the Pi, at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The 
Grand Chapter of 1858 was held in Waterville under the auspices of the 
Chi, and the Chi has been represented at nearly every Grand Chapter 
by from one to three regular delegates besides uncredentialed brothers. 
Chi men have presided at five Grand Chapters George Bradley, '53, as 
acting Phi Alpha in 1854, and as Phi Alpha in 1855; R. W. Dunn, '68, 
as acting Phi Alpha in 1871, and as Phi Alpha in 1872, and Liberty E. 
Holden as Phi Alpha in 1884. The following Chi men have held subor- 
dinate rank in various Grand Chapters: Nelson Dingley, '55, Alpha Phi 
Alpha; Charles A. Miller, '56, Alpha Sigma Alpha; C. E. Meleney, '76, 
Alpha Sigma Alpha; C. W. Sanger, '56, Gamma Alpha; George L. 
Chandler, '68, Gamma Alpha, and J. Manchester Haynes, '60, Sigma 
Rho Alpha. 

The Chi will celebrate her semicentennial on June 26th, 1900. Her 
record has entitled her to a large share in the councils of the college, 
and accordingly the principal public exercise of the Seventy-ninth 
Annual Commencement has been placed in her charge, and will be 
given under her directions. She will furnish the presiding officer, the 
orator and the chaplain, and it is confidently expected that the occasion 
will constitute a fitting climax to fifty years of unbroken and honorable

The history of the Epsilon of Zeta Psi falls naturally into three 
chapters. The first of these covers the period from its establishment, in 
1852, to its discontinuance, in 1861, by the enlistment of practically all its 
members for the defense of the Union. After an interval of three years 
the organization was renewed in 1864 and continued until the latter part 
of 1876. Ten years elapsed before the chapter was again revived in 1886. 
In all 232 men have been initiated, 110 of whom have joined the chapter 
since 1886. 

In the spring of 1852, when Zeta Psi was introduced at Brown, the 
University was flourishing under the able management of Dr. Francis 
Wayland. The material resources and equipment, though meagre meas- 
ured by modern standards, were considerable for those days, while 
the earnestness of purpose and intellectual alertness of the students 
would challenge comparison with anything that we, now at the end of 
the century, can show in the way of academic or scientific interest. The 
atmosphere of the college made its way into all student organizations. 
Literary societies flourished. Hence that intellectual companionship 
which the elders of the "Fifties" so fondly remember and praise as an 
essential feature of fraternity life. The more social ends that fraterni- 
ties now keep in view were at that date hardly regarded as sufficient in 
themselves or as having force enough to hold together a band of students. 
Whatever we may feel to be the merits of either view, the fact remains 
that the early founders, by making ability more than geniality or ac- 
complishment the basis of their choice, built on sterling qualities and 
built to last. There were few distractions, either social or athletic. 
Everywhere was an air of seriousness and of work. 

In such an atmosphere and in a college with a Faculty of twelve and 
a student body of two hundred and twenty-five the Epsilon Chapter of 
Zeta Psi was founded on April 21, 1852. Five fraternities were already 
in the field, only three, however, having been represented at Brown for 
more than five years. There was an abundance of good material for the 
new chapter and the wisdom of establishing it was shown at once by 
the energy which the Epsilon displayed and the influence which it im- 
mediately exerted. John A. Gardiner, '52, son of a prominent Providence 
physician, was the prime mover of the organization. With him were asso- 
ciated as charter members Charles E. Staples, Miles Fletcher, Asa Arnold, 
William D. Chaffee, Stoughton A. Fletcher and Addison W. Preston. The 
actual ceremony of initiation and inauguration was performed by Brothers 
from the Delta. On the 30th of April Bro. Rousse of that chapter brought 
the Epsilon the charter and various paraphernalia still in its possession. 
By June of this same year the membership had been increased to thirteen. 

From the first the chapter had a vigorous internal life, and at the 
same time made itself felt in all college activities. Furthermore, it en- 
tered at once, and in a surprising way, into the life of the fraternity at 
large. This, as it is always bound to do, had a very quickening, reac- 
tive effect upon the chapter. Cordial and intimate relations were imme- 
diately established with the Rho, at Harvard, and the Kappa, at Tufts. 
In 1858 Bro. Charles D. King was the chief agent in establishing a 
chapter at Amherst. This energy and enthusiasm aroused the corporate 
spirit of new and old chapters alike, and drew from the neighbors of the 
Epsilon many warm commendations of her spirit. At Commencement, 
1859, the Grand Chapter was entertained in Providence, and was pre- 
sided over by a $ A from the Epsilon Chapter. 

Naturally, a secret organization has little external history except 
the personal record of its members. For such accounts the reader is re- 
ferred for the most part to the biographical sketches. However, a few 


deserve especial mention men whose after lives are an indication of their 
own ability and of the personnel of the chapter in its ante bellum days. 
Of the charter members, the Hon. John A. Gardiner was long- a 
prominent member of the Rhode Island Legislature and of the Rhode 
Island bar. From 1871 till his death in 1879 he was U. S. district at- 
torney. Throughout his busy life his interest in the chapter of his 
foundation and his enthusiasm for Zeta Psi were sustained. The Hon. 
David H. Goodell, of the class of '56, served the Commonwealth of New 
Hampshire long and well, and was finally, in 1889-91, honored by his 
fellow-citizens with the highest post at their disposal, the Governorship. 
His contemporary, the Hon. Elisha Dyer, of the class of '59, has received 
a like honor. Since 1897 he has held the Gubernatorial chair of the State 
of Rhode Island, a chair occupied by his father before him. Edward H. 
Cutler, of the class of '57, enjoys a brilliant reputation as an educator 
and a scholar, fulfilling the promise he gave in college. The names of the 
Grosvenors stand for competence and success in the field of business enter- 
prise. Of the many who served the city of Providence, developing her 
industries and directing her councils, there is not room to speak. We 
shall proceed to devote the remainder of our space to the war record of 
the Epsilon. 

At the outbreak of the Civil War the able-bodied men of the chapter 
without exception entered the service of the country. One only was left 
to maintain the name of Zeta Psi in Brown, and on his graduation in 
1863 the chapter lapsed for a while. Eighteen Zeta brethren in all fought 
for the old flag. Three laid down their lives Miles Fletcher, '52, Capt. 
Charles A. Kneass, '58, and Capt. J. C. Williams, '61. Three attained 
to the rank of colonel, while three others W. G. Ely, '54, Livingston 
Satterlee, '60, and Wm. Ames, '63 were brevetted brigadier-generals. 
All but three received commissions of one sort or another. The chapter 
died, but it might be said "dulce et decorum est pro patria mori." 

At the close of the war, the Elders of the Epsilon, proud of their past 
and feeling honored in their very extinction, decided to put the chapter 
on a peace footing once more. On April 21, 1864, the twelfth anniversary 
of the founding of the chapter, it was reestablished to endure, as it 
proved, for twelve years. In those twelve years 53 men were added to the 
fraternity. The growth in numbers during this period was much slower 
than for the years 1852-60 or 1886-99. In the earlier years it averaged 
seven per annum, in the middle-age four, and in the last period eight. 

On turning over the biographical list we find a long line of success- 
ful men of affairs, to choose from whom would be almost invidious. Bro. 
Atwater, '65, and Bro. J. C. B. Woods, '72, have both been honored by 
election to the corporation of Brown University. Bro. George Hitchcock, 
also of the class of '72, has won for himself a place in the front rank of 
American artists and an international reputation. His work has received 
the gold medal at more than one international exposition, and his pic- 
tures hang in the Royal Collections at Dresden and Vienna. Sayles 
Memorial Hall is a monument to Bro. Wm. C. Sayles, '78, who died be- 
fore completing his college course. 

In December, 1871, the Grand Chapter was for a second time enter- 
tained by the Epsilon. The prosperity of the chapter received in the 
years immediately ensuing a sudden check, so that in 1876 the number 
of active members having sunk to three, the chapter again went out of exist- 
ence. Ten years elapsed before its revival in 1886, since which time it has 
had a career without vicissitudes. The work of reestablishment was 
effected by Bro. Charles A. Parker, '86, an initiate of the Chi Chapter 
at Colby, who came to Brown and took his degree in 1886. By his untir- 
ing efforts fifteen excellent men from the four classes were banded 
together for upwards of a year, receiving their initiation into the fra- 
ternity on April 17, 1886. 

The chapter owes much of its present prosperity to the excellent 
judgment of Bro. Parker, who selected his men deliberately and care- 


fully. The field was well taken by the older fraternities; the long 
interval since 1876 had broken traditions and misjudgment meant 
failure. Much, too, is due to the persistent loyalty and generosity of 
the Elders. Two destructive fires in quick succession destroyed the 
chapter's property, but the loss of chattels did not discourage nor thwart 
those who were bound to rehabilitate Zeta Psi. Every Epsilon man 
owes an almost personal obligation to Bro. Edwin G. Dexter, '91, who, 
at great risk, rescued the archives and charter of the chapter from the 

The events in the life of the Epsilon since 1886 have hardly crystal- 
lized into history. Its policy has been progressive and its tradition of 
quick and sympathetic touch with the other chapters has been zealously 
maintained. January 15 and 16, 1891, were made memorable by a third 
visit of the Grand Chapter of Zeta Psi to Providence. The Convention was 
one of the largest in the history of the fraternity and naturally had the 
effect of quickening the life of the chapter. 

Not much can be said of the achievements of the Elders of the re- 
vived chapter. Hardly time enough has elapsed. Still in 1898, on the 
issue of the call to arms, the Epsilon remembered her traditions. Two 
officersof the 1st R. I. Vols. were young Elders Capt. Maurice H. Cook, 
'97, and Lieut. Herbert D. Casey, '94. In the Navy Alexander D. Sharp, 
Jr., '75, of Annapolis Naval Academy, Lieut. -Commander of U. S. S. 
"Vixen," was advanced by the President five numbers on the list for 
"eminent and conspicuous conduct in battle." 

In closing, a brief statement of some of the achievements of BrownZetes 
in college matters may help to an appreciation of the Epsilon Chapter. 
From the days when Jastram, '60, rowed on the crew down to the present 
time the chapter has shown prowess on the track, the diamond and the 
gridiron, as the names of Marvel, "Woodcock and Robinson will attest to 
Brown Alumni at least. The dramatic interests of the college were 
organized in the "Hammer and Tongs Society" by Bro. Francis Lawton, 
'69, past $ A; and author of the words of "The Badge of Zeta Psi"; 
they were revived and again organized largely through the efforts of 
Colvin, '91, and Keating, '95, in the year 1895 by the production of 
"Priscilla; or, The Maid of Brown." Owen, '90, was one of the 
founders of the Brown Magazine, the College Literary, and Epsilon men 
were the projectors and printers of the Brown Daily Herald. 

The chapter has, true to the spirit of the fraternity, striven to bring 
together congenial men. It has never sacrificed harmony of spirit to 
gather in men of distinction or men distinguished in one line only. It 
has striven for the most vigorous local life, combined with the largest 
fraternal life, to mould Brown Zetes. Conscious of the dignity of its past 
and of its present strength, the Epsilon looks forward confidently to a 
career of credit and usefulness in realizing the spirit and widening and 
consolidating ever firmer the bonds of T K 3>.
