So it seems that Beta Gamma was a weird mistake. Maybe the wiki page editor meant a chapter of a sorority named Beta Gamma?
It's Wiki. Yours seems like a good guess.

Well that solves that.

But I am doing research on all the defunct/absorbed NPC, AES, and Junior Sororities.

I have a lot of information on most and pictures of badges for most of them but perhaps someone on this thread can help me. This is the information I am missing:

Alpha Delta Theta
Picture of the crest and name of the founders.

Beta Sigma Omicron
All chapters past 1911 and a picture of the crest.

Beta Phi Alpha
Name of the founders, chapter roll, picture of the crest and badge

Theta Upsilon
Name of founders, crest, and chapter roll with years

Lambda Omega
Founders, chapter roll, crest and badge

Phi Omega Pi
Names of the 15 founders, chapter roll, and crest

Sigma Phi Beta
motto, flower, colors, publications, crest, chapter roll, name of founders

Delta Sigma Epsilon
Chapter roll past 1926, crest

Theta Sigma Upsilon
motto, flower, colors, publications, founders, history, date of founding, chapter roll, crest

Pi Delta Theta
motto, flower, colors, publications, founders, history, date of founding, chapter roll, crest, picture of badge

Pi Kappa Sigma
motto, history, crest, chapter roll past iota chapter

Alpha Kappa Psi
history, founders, crest, badge, and chapter roll

Eta Upsilon Gamma
history, founders, crest, chapter roll with years

Sigma Iota Chi
founder's names (there were two), chapters with years

Phi Mu Gamma
motto, flower, colors, history, crest, chapter roll

Zeta Mu Epsilon
publications, founders, history, crest, chapters with years

If anyone can help that would be amazing! Google is so limited it seems. I have been searching Ebay for some things and I have found a publication of Eta Upsilon Gamma and a ring for ZME...but so far that is it....

some of this information can be found in the old Bairds Manuals which can be found on google books. I have pictures of each of these groups pins if you need them, and possibly the crests. As for mottos, do you mean their secret ones or the public ones? I would contact each of the organizations to which the groups merged an try to get info as well.

Please feel free to PM me if you are having troubles finding the information as I have an abundance of it.

The google books copy of The Sorority Handbook by Ida Shaw Martin that MysticCat posted about in another thread may have some of this information.

I have online copies of Baird's and Martin's Sorority Handbook as well as copies of Banta's Greek Exchange and I was unable to find crests, badges, and open mottos.

BG, I didn't think to contact some sororities like DZ who have had several mergers! I will email their HQ and see what they can tell me and I will share it on here! Thank you all!
