Pi Beta Phi
Pi Beta Phi is the oldest national fraternity for women in existence. It is the
oldest society for women modeled after the men's fraternities and was the first or-
ganization of its kind to establish chapters in the different schools and colleges
throughout the country. Pi Beta Phi was founded at Monmouth College, Illinois,
April 28, 1867. It was incorporated as a national organization by an act of the
Illinois State Legislature, October 14, 1899. In all, Pi Beta Phi has sixty chapters
throughout the United States and Canada and a total membership of over ten thous-
and five hundred and fifty. '
Pi Beta Phi was installed at the University of Pittsburgh September 19, 1918.
The active chapter consists of twenty-two members and two pledges. Since its
establishment at the University and even before, while still a local, the fraternity
has endeavored to work for the school and to take part in activities. The fraternity
has always been represented in all forms of activities-athletic, scholastic, and liter-
ary. It has three members in Alpha Lambda Nu: three members in Pi Lambda
Theta. One of its members was Panther Editor, three were Editors of the Owl, two
are on the Pitt Weekly Staff. In other activities such as Senate, class oilices, Girls'
Glee Club and Orchestra Pi Beta Phi is also represented.
