Sororities Absorbed by DZ

Hello!

I was hoping some sisters of DZ would be able to assist me. I am doing a blog post on the sororities that DZ has absorbed. I know that the sorority has absorbed many sororities in the past and I was wondering if any sisters could guide me.

So far I know DZ absorbed:
Beta Phi Alpha in 1941
Phi Omega Pi in 1946
Delta Sigma Epsilon in 1956
Theta Upsilon in 1962

Thank you so much! Any additional information would be wonderful!

DZ didn't absorb other sororities, DZ simply absorbed sororities that had absorbed others.

Here we go:
I. Sigma Sigma Omicron absorbed Phi Alpha Chi (originally Tanewah) circa 1927. The new sorority became Sigma Phi Beta.

In the early 1930s, Phi Omega Pi (originally Achoth) absorbed Sigma Phi Beta.
As you know, PhiOPi went to DZ.

II. Lambda Omega (originally Norronea [sp?] absorbed Alpha Sigma Delta (originally Iaqua) in 1932.
Theta Upsilon (originally Mekatina) abosrbed Lambda Omega in 1933.
Then, Theta Upsilon goes to DZ.

IV. Delta Sigma Epsilon absorbed Pi Delta Theta in the early 1940s. Then, DSE goes to DZ.

V. Beta Phi Alpha took a chapter of Phi Delta, a non-NPC sorority that was disintegrating by the late 1930s b/c of the Depression. But this isn't really a merger.

It's a very interesting family tree!!!!

But wouldn't sororities that had absorbed others still be sororities?

I had to read it a few times, but I think that by "DZ didn't absorb other sororities," she meant DZ didn't absorb sororities other than those listed in the OP.

Sorry about the typo. DZ only officially, through legal paperwork and all that other fun stuff, absorbed BPhiA, PhiOPi, DSE and TU.
