ΘΦΑ Wikipedia page expansion...

Just thought I'd let the sisters know that the Wikipedia page about Theta Phi Alpha page has gone through some recent expansion and work. You might find it interesting!

Pi Lambda Sigma

Currently in the process of creating a Draft of a Pi Lambda Sigma article. Most of that is coming from the Centennial History, but backed up with Baird's.

When I get that to a stable state, I'll post the URL.

I've found some interesting things looking through yearbooks from universities with PLS chapters. Unfortunately Boston University does not have online yearbooks to look through.

Agreed. Get with the program BU!

Also, at this point I'm trying to find two things
1) I thought that I saw that at some point Beta chapter was folded into Alpha Chapter as both were at BU (one College of Arts, the other College of Education).

2) Trying to get a list of founders. The Theta Phi Alpha Centennial book as different lists of Theta Phi Alpha founders on two pages (one with 8, the other with 9) and https://sororityhistories.wordpress....-lambda-sigma/ shows 6.

Can you give the page numbers where they differ? I've never noticed that before...

ETA:
If you see the last column on page 21, it gives detail on Sutherland and Quinlan being added as official founders.

Not differences in the founders of Theta Phi Alpha, differences in the founders of Pi Lambda Sigma.

Page 37:
The Pi Lambda Sigma founders were Constance Bartholomew, Mary O’Shaughnessey Brennan, Lauretta Nally Cushing, Anne Donohue, Viola MacEachern Horrigan, Mary Lyons Laffoley, Margaret McDermott, Teresa Talamini, and Helen Wilson.

Page 67: (The Gray box)
PI LAMBDA SIGMA FOUNDING MEMBERS
Teresa Talamini
Lauretta Nally
Anne Donohue
Helen Wilson
Constance Bartholomew
Viola MacEachern
Margaret McDermott
Alice Curran

Differences:
Mary O’Shaughnessey Brennan and Mary Lyons Laffoley are in the first list, but not the second, Alice Curran is in the second list but not the first.


And https://sororityhistories.wordpress....-lambda-sigma/
has Theresa Talamini, Mary O’Shaughnessy Brennan, Constance Bartholomew, Mary Lyons Laffloey, Lauretta Nally Cushing, and Helen Wilson which are 6 of the 9 in the first list.
(Which appears to be taking from Baird's Manual of American College Fraternities (at least of the 1968 edition in the fraternities that are no more)

HELP!

Pi Lambda Sigma

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:...igma_(sorority) is the current location, I'm asking for review before "publishing it" on mainspace. Still haven't figured out the issue with the founders.
