Paui II. Ch J. T. Spenc. Frank ( Iwi x P. C. Stringi Phi Beta Kappa, the nation ' s greatest honorary scholastic fraternity, was founded in December, 1776, at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, with three avowed principles . . . " Fraternity, Morality, and Literature. " Two years later a resolution was passed that membership not be confined to " collegians alone " and in July 1779, was elected to membership the only person who was not a native of Virginia. This initiate, a graduate of Yale, then proceeded to secure chapters for both Harvard and Yale and started Phi Beta Kappa on its way to a national organization. For over one hundred and fifty years the fraternity has given oblong gold keys, on one side of which are engraved the Greek letters for Phi Beta Kappa, and a hand pointing to three stars, signifying the principles l n u 1 j icH the organization stands; on the reverse side is the name of the member and the chapter, the year of initiation, and " S.P., December 5, 177!).
