I actually have a copy of the Sorority Handbook by Ida Shaw Martin (from my college roommate's grandmother's stuff, if you remember that story). That's where I found the open motto thing and also the specific type of white rose. There's lots of really cool information about all kinds of orgs in there.

Since it's probably unlikely that there are many of those floating around, you might be interested to know that it's online (6th ed.) on google books. Here's the link if you're interested:

Smile the motto

It definitely was gussied up to our current translation.

BTW, my father used to tease my chapter sisters about their pronunciation. The Southerners had that twang, "Taw kawlah deh-oh-koh-men" which bothered the heck out of him. But hey, he had an accent too!

I wish that this thread would become more active again! I loved hearing all of the trivia and history about Kappa Delta. I am a HUGE nerd when it comes to KD history...but I am not ashamed to admit it!!

Here's my (belated) Founder's Day trivia bump! It's been almost a year since Leslie first asked this question... what's the answer?!?

OMG. I'm so sorry. I can't remember where I found that tidbit of information but I'll try to find it today and post the answer.


Okay, I'm back and I found the answer. A Founder's Day message has been published in The Angelos by the National President every year since 1931.

Anyone want to post a new question?

New Question!

To get things started again I'm tossing out another question.

When was Kappa Delta's first convention held?

Thanks, Leslie Anne.

Next question:
What scholarship is awarded to a KD pursuing a graduate degree in the field of health care?
