Alpha Delta Theta??

All right, help me out folks.

I'm in the process of researching sororities and women's fraternities that are/were specifically geared towards women persuing degrees in scientific and technological fields. Amazingly enough, there are quite a few such organizations - most are established, active, and growing, while some unfortunately are defunct.

I've been able to trace most of them except one, called Alpha Delta Theta. I've found as many as 4 different greek lettered organizations named as such - the one I am interested in is the women's professional fraternity, and their Alpha Iota Chapter is at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia.

I figure based on their founding date and Chapter designation that there are more chapters - but I haven't found any national information on them, and I have a bad feeling that chapter is defunct.

Has anyone else heard of this particular Alpha Delta Theta - and if so, please point me jn their direction! Just as a point of interest - I've already ruled out GLOs of the same name at:

Sewanee - University of the South (a local sorority)
Highpoint University (a Christian sorority)
USC (a co-ed academic/pre-professional networking group for education/general studies majors)
UIUC - a national sorority, defunct for many years (merged with Phi Mu, as implied on UIUC and some Phi Mu pagees).

I'd appreciate any word-of-mouth leads, as web searches have turned up dry.

Thanks!

Thanks!
Are you referring to U of Illinois at Urbana Champaign? That is my chapter, and I never knew that!

Alpha Delta Theta used to be a national social sorority that was absorbed by Phi Mu in the late 1930s. At U of Illinois, during the depression, the sorority was forced to move into another sorority house, because ADT didn't own their house. So, they moved into the Phi Mu house, who at that time, was lacking membership. There's a sort of oral history on the UIUC website at:

http://web.library.uiuc.edu/ahx/slc/...oralhist5.html

They were also at Nebraska University...It was founded at Transylvania College in 1919 and had 9 active chapters. The Nebraska group was the Zeta Chapter. Here's a photo of their house from the 30s.

That's all I could find. Can you tell I do not want to do any more work?

Alpha Delta Theta merged with Phi Mu. Thats how my chapter began, we were ADtheta until we became phi mu in 1939. I don't really know much about how the organization worked, but I hope that helps!

Thanks for your quick feedback!

Thanks Barb and shakodat, I had indeed found those very sites - that's actually how I found out about the GLO in the first place.


If anyone hears of any other information - please let me know!

Thanks.

Interesting!

Thanks for the information, Barb! I didn't think to find Alpha Delta Theta in Baird's.

I know this thread is from 10 years ago but I hope someone will respond! I am a sister of Alpha Delta Theta from the Alpha Iota chapter at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. We are a professional women's fraternity for women pursuing degrees in the fields of science and medicine. We currently have 12 sisters and are still very active on campus. If you would like more information please feel free to contact me!

I know I am 14 years to late for this question, but hoping someone sees it.

I was in Alpha Delta Theta sorority, the Alpha chapter, at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was a professional sorority for Medical Technology students. I was the recording secretary for several years. I also attended the national convention in Morgantown, WV in 1972???

So I'm even later, but there was apparently an ADTh chapter at Albany College of Pharmacy. One of the founding sisters just died; her obit is here. http://obits.nj.com/obituaries/starl...&pid=184532984

Miss Anne Marie Tarsa, a member of the senior medical technology class and the daugb/ ler'ql Mr. and Mrs..Frank Tarsi of 6 Walnut St.,' Mcchanicville, was Ihe recipient of the Alpha Delta Theta 'Award of '$10 for the senior student in medical technology who during the first three years of the course has shown t h e greatest improvement, effort and achievement in the scholastic and professional program and who has'givcn evidence of increased interest in her chosen profession. . She is a graduate of Mechanicville High ner and cochairman, Graham .(The Times Record from Troy, New York, 1/10/1968) This is OCR transcription -- hence all the "typos" -- so that paltry $10 could be a different amount.

I believe that the Alpha Delta Theta local sorority at Sewanee joined Alpha Delta Pi last fall.
