Lambda Sigma was installed A p r i l 27, 1935, in Memorial hall on the
campus. Edith Huntington Anderson (Mrs. Arthur K . ) Beta Phi—Indiana

key names in Lambda Sigma history are Callendar, the first collegiate
president, and Carolyn Huey Harris ( M r s . J. Rodney) the 1964 Inter-

South Milledge, now a nursery school; and in 1946, the chapter obtained a
lease on the present Delta Tau Delta fraternity house, where Lambda
Sigma collegiates lived for seven years. I n 1947, the chapter purchased the
Pi Kappa Alpha residence at 1190 South Milledge, which is the present
Lambda Sigma location. The residential area around the site was a large
plantation. Community work consists of keeping the gardens in good con-

are kept for public viewing. For the 1964-1965 academic terms, Lambda

When Carolyn Piper [now Carolyn Piper Dorr (Mrs. Louis) ] was a
student at Northwestern she was unaffiliated, as were all the collegiates
who lived in Pearsons hall. These young women were not accepted into
sororities because they lived in a cooperative house to reduce their living
expenses. Carolyn believed there were many fine girls of personality and
ability, but not wealth, who would be splendid sorority members. Through
the efforts of Carolyn and May Barlow Yokum (Mrs. Earl L . ) and their
friends, Rho was installed June 11, 1909. Many interested persons f r o m
other chapters helped in the founding. For example, Melita Skillen, Epsi-
lon—Cornell University, was teaching high school in the area and was
popular with many potential AOIIs. Mrs. Rowe, for whom the chapter
was named, was a friend of Carolyn's mother and made her home available
for many functions in the days before the 1927 building of the chapter
house. — f r o m winter, 1959, T o DRAGMA

Indiana it happened this way
DePauw University • Indiana
F r o m the beginnings of a little club called J . F . F . (Just for F u n ) formed by six
Greencastle, Indiana, high school girls as a take off on sororities, Theta chapter
had its unofficial start. F o r when five of the girls went to college at D e P a u w , they
"stuck together". I n a short time, they were approached by the president of the
University who indicated he would like to see them organized as a national sorority,
and A O I I was the mutual selection. T h u s , on August 22, 1907, H e l e n S t . C l a i r M u l l a n
(Mrs. George V . ) , Alpha—Barnard College and one of T h e Founders, and third
National President, installed T h e t a chapter in the parlor of "Sunny H i l l " , the home
of a member. B y now, 57 years and 700 A O I I s later, T h e t a chapter has had s i x
different locations, each larger than the former. T h e first was a parlor with three
adjoining bedrooms; the last is a beautiful new home with cornerstone rites held last
May 2, which will be occupied for the first time this fall. M a r y Jane F a r m e r H a y e s
(Mrs. L o u i s ) , one of T h e t a chapter's charter members, helped in personally financing
the home which occupied the site that now is the scene of the new house for 68
collegiates. T h e t a has spent 1963-1964 in four annexes while the new house was
being built, but nevertheless, it has been a great year for the chapter. T h e many
inconveniences, rush in the Art Center, meals and dances in the Student Union, and
crowded meetings in the central annex, have just made more fun and togetherness.
Annual traditions of introducing the pledges at the Rose B a l l , honoring parents on
Mom's and Dad's days, raising money for Mortar Board and for philanthropic
projects, and displaying booths at the W o r l d University Service carnival and at
DePauw's Little 500 were continued. B e i n g able to watch our hole in the ground
grow into a beautiful home was the most thrilling part of the year. E a g e r l y Theta
looks to its first year in the new house. I t w i l l be a little sad though to say goodbye
to the annexes; they have become a part of A O I I that we will never forget. Good
deeds continue to be part of T h e t a collegiate's giving, for Panyotis, a Greek boy, is
being supported by the chapter as a philanthropic service. —Donna Leverett

surrounded by a group t r y i n g to decide whether to have the " O " set in
