Alpha Delta Pi memorabilia

If you will pardon my barge...

I came across some of my mother's ADPi items this past weekend and thought I would share with you a day in the life of an ADPi in 1960.

Her pledge book



Recipt for dues, housing and initiation



My personal favorite...a little sister adoption card. Are these still given?



Her colors



Her composite



I have some other items and photo's I will post as well.

My favorite is the Big-Little agreement. Also, the receipt. It says to "Save Your Receipts" and she sure did!

Was she ever at UNT? I ask because the dorm name and room number on that little sister adoption slip are suspiciously close to where I lived as a freshman!

Mom did attend UNT for her freshman year and then transferred to TCU. I went back and looked through her scrapbook and it appears the little sister adoption card is for the dorm at UNT and not sorority related. I just naturally assumed it was for the sorority.

Here are a few more items.

TCU Greek Guide



Party schedule. She has a newspaper article that says 700 girls went through recruitment that year.



Mom was dropped and also got engaged while in school. Can someone tell me if these photo's are the dropped or engagement or maybe even a pinning? I love how everyone is wearing the same thing.

Oh, how I love what you are sharing. And I am so upset that I didn't save every little thing now. The photos look like they are standing on the entrance steps outdoors.

Could you help me understand what you meant by your mom getting dropped?

Love it. Every ADPi chapter does it differently, so no way to know it was a dropping, pinning or engagement from the photos.

Yet another time that I wish we had a LIKE button!

Yet another time I wish my printer would work, so I could show you a postcard from EO in the 1950's (not to me, though)!

Out of my lane here too, but I agree with Honeychile, I wish we had a LIKE button.

I wonder in years to come if our daughters, will be posting our memorabilia online for future greeks to look at?
