Hazel Rutherford McCuaig, daughter of the first premier of Alberta Alexander Rutherford, was a Pi Phi.

(She was also, I'm told, a strong advocate for Greek life at UAlberta but the only sources I have for that are anecdotes so feel free to take it with a grain of salt.)

Not my sorority, but it was fun to read that Dorcas Reilly, the inventor of that green bean casserole that probably everyone's eaten at one time or another, was an ASA: http://www2.philly.com/philly/obitua...-20181023.html.

This article is also interesting because it shows her original notes from the testing process.

Anyone know details?

I think her younger daughter, Olivia Jade, joined USC Kappa too.

Millionaire YouTubers, Brooklyn and Bailey McKnight, both joined Chi Omega at Baylor.
And of course, their recruitment journey is on YouTube:

Female presidential candidates

Now that the 2020 election is (already) heating up, here are three democratic presidential candidates with greek affiliations: Kamala Harris, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Elizabeth Warren, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Kirsten Gillibrand, Kappa Kappa Gamma.

This site has a rather extensive list of greek women that have served in the United States Senate: https://www.franbecque.com/female-se...-2017-edition/ At the top of the page, there are also multiple headings to click for other groupings of famous sorority women.
Looking through some of the other lists, I see that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a member of AEPhi, and my own Kansas governor Laura Kelly was a KU Pi Phi.

Can anyone help with this one? Linda Ellerbee was a reporter for NBC, and appeared in several of their online news magazines. Younger GCers will know her from Nick News on Nickelodeon.

In her autobiography, "And So It Goes", she mentions that she joined a sorority at Vanderbilt. This was in the early 60s, as she dropped out of Vandy in '64 to get married. I've tried to look it up, but have never found the answer.

BTW, if you can get a hold of a copy of "And So It Goes", it is great reading. Especially what it was like to be a female reporter in the early '70s.

She likely would have been initiated as Linda Jane Smith. I checked the Pi Phi database and could not find her. Alas, if she resigned her membership she would not be in the database members can check.

She does not appear the the Gamma Phi Beta database either. Gamma Phi Beta was at Vanderbilt from 1924-1998.

Alpha Delta Pi hadn't chartered its Vanderbilt chapter at that time.
