Chi Omega's Beloved Founders

Dr. Charles Richardson occupies a unique place in Fraternity history, a founder of a women's fraternity. As a founder of Chi Omega, he drafted our first ritual and constitution, chose the names of our officers and developed the Eleusinian mysteries as the basis of our esoteric symbolism. In his many writings, Dr. Richardson often said that founding Chi Omega was his most precious accomplishment and the one in which he had the most pride and satisfaction. ~ taken directly from Chi Omega's National Webpage (www.chiomega.com)

We're Special...

Gamma Sig doesn't list all of the ladies involved in the formation of the sorority. Instead, we recognize all the schools they were from.

Those Eight Founding Schools are:

Drexel Institute of Technology
New York University
Brooklyn College
Queens College
Boston College
University of Houston
Los Angeles City College
Miami University of Ohio

Gamma Sig also recognizes those three women at Drexel who coordinated the entire formation by bringing all the schools together~our "Golden Gammas":

Barbara Ferraro
Marvyn Glover
Margaret "Peg" Zimmerman

This is an interesting fact for my APO brothers: The national officers of Alpha Phi Omega attended our sorority's first few conventions. Also, our "Golden Gamma" Marvyn was married to an Alpha Phi Omega brother for over 40 years!

In Service...

Our founders then met a Phi Delta Theta from Indiana named George Banta and he helped with the expansion of Delta Gamma in the North. He is DeeGees only male initiate.

You beat me to it! When I was in college, two of our founding sisters were still alive since we were founded in 1917.
