From A Centennial History of Alpha Phi Fraternity:

The first man walked in space in 1965. He stepped from a Soviet spaceship. Soon thereafter an American repeated the feat. Gemini 6 and Gemini 7 executed the first manned space rendezvous. The Watts riot in Los Angeles occurred in August, forerunner of future civil disorders. A massive power failure blacked out most of the northeastern United States and Canada on the night of November 9-10.

Beta Sigma Omicron, a member of NPC, became inactive in 1964, and Alpha Phi pledged three of her chapters. One of these was at Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge. There were sixteen NPC groups on campus. Twenty-three collegians and forty alumnae of the Beta Sigma Omicron chapter were initiated in May 1965 by the Omega (Texas) chapter and became Delta Tau chapter of Alpha Phi. The group had been on campus since 1929 and had many loyal alumnae.

On November 20, 1964, thirty-two collegians and forty-seven alumnae of the Beta Sigma Omicron chapter at Baldwin Wallace College, Berea, Ohio, were initiated into Delta Upsilon chapter of Alpha Phi. Five other NPC groups were on campus. Beta Omega (Kent State) initiated; Beta Omicron (Bowling Green State) conducted the model meeting; Beta Kappa (Denison) also contributed to the weekend.

Nine NPC groups were on the campus of Indiana University of Pennsylvania at Indiana, when thirty-eight collegians and seven alumnae of the former Beta Sigma Omicron chapter were initiated into Delta Phi chapter of Alpha Phi on January 30, 1965. Because this was rush week, the newly initiated group held a rush party the Sunday following initiation.


Note: Delta Phi has been inactive since 1988. Delta Tau has been inactive since 1980. Delta Upsilon chapter at Baldwin Wallace is doing very well. The alumnae of Delta Tau are also still very active.

If a former member of IAPi or BSO wanted to pursue AI, would she be able to since she was no longer a part of the NPC?

Since BSO was absorbed by ZTA, I personally would consider her bound to ZTA unless ZTA told me otherwise.

As far as IAPi, I don't know. If you're going by not being in NPC, then Kappa Beta Gamma members could also theoretically become alum members of an NPC, and I don't think that would go over well with the NPC groups who compete with them in collegiate rush.

Beta Sigma Omicron joined ZTA 1964-so some of those girls are probably still alive!
One of my sister's closest friends, a woman in her 60s whom she met in nursing school, was a BSO at Samford in the late 50s or early 60s. The chapter was historically very strong on campus and is one of Zeta's top chapters today. (I think my sister's friend either left school to get married or graduated before they affiliated.)

It sort of makes sense that there wasn't a merger when you look at it like that.
There were A LOT of problems for the greek system in 1970-72. The elitist attitude of the Greeks was coming into play and was a source of great angst to many a school. Minorities were just starting to go through rush, but most of the houses were very staunch in the all white stands, thus the relevance of Greeks was being questioned on every level. Schools were dealing with sit-ins and major anti-war demonstrations which were more relevant to campus members. During that time, rush numbers for sororities were low.

Hazing was also a big issue for fraternities at the time. There were rules against hazing, but enforcement did not come for quite some time. Again, this brought into play the relevance of the Greek system and their need on campus. The philanthropic work was not in the open, only the partying and hazing were what the community saw.

My mother was on campus from 1969-1973, and she talks about how much change there was in those four years. She was in a sorority, and as freshman, they did not leave the house in anything but skirts, and by the time she was a senior, they were allowed to wear JEANS!

Strangely, I think they were also very good years for the Greeks at Illinois, because the university did not have enough housing for its students, and encouraged as many as possible to go greek. If you look at the houses, the majority have obvious additions that were added in the late 60's or early 70's.

I once saw an Iota Alpha Pi pin on ebay, and it was beautiful! It was a diamond very similar to the ADPi diamond, but with a shadow effect, something like <<> . The first part of the shadow was gold, and the rest was strangely enough, azure blue! Then the letters were in gold.

I was convinced it was a colony which became ADPi, until I read its history - just like I thought Alpha Delta Theta would have been a more likely candidate to merge with Alpha Delta Pi than Phi Mu! Thank heavens for Baird's!!

DaffyKD said it well...
There were huge problems in the 1970s with Greek systems across the country. This was an era of social upheavel. Campuses were beginning to be integrated. Students were staging revolts. It was the time of "do your own thing" and non-conformism. Students made fun of the greeks. Membership in sororities and fraternities dropped, many chapters closed (including mine ), and some schools closed their Greek systems.

There's a great picture in one of our history books, Loyally, which shows sisters "protesting" during rush! These well dressed coeds all had big signs that said things such as "Up With ADPi!" "Make Charity, Not Protest!" and things such as that. It's so anachronistic, I love it!

My question is...

What happens to the alumnae of the defunct NPC group when they are absorbed by another group. I understand how the current collegiate members would have been given the option to affiliate, etc., but what about the alumnae?

Just curious if any of the members of these absorbed groups went on to do great things for their "new" group, e.g., serve as chapter advisors, district leaders, inter/national officers?
