Which is why it's not accurate to say that the statement that Betty Crocker was Greek was partly true, partly false. The accurate statement would be that the woman who first provided the voice of Betty Crocker was Greek.

If you're going to the Betty Crocker and Suzanne Sugarbaker were "real people" route, than you need to demonstrate that Betty Crocker's backstory gave her a Greek affiliation. Otherwise you're saying that any character is Greek just by virtue of being portrayed or voiced by an actor with Greek affiliation.

Even Smurfette.

I think that I heard that Betty Crocker and Smurfette both personally left their badges on the moon when they were there.

Seriously, if nobody has claimed Sally Ride, a remarkable woman, it seems likely to me that she may be a plain old GDI.

Smurfette and Betty both knew Neil Armstrong's wives personally...didn't ya know that?

And regarding Sally Ride, I wouldn't be surprised if she was a member of a service/honorary/professional Greek organization based on her resume alone. Nothing on Google came up with an NPC affiliation so I'm guessing she's not one.

Gamma Phi Beta has/had an astronaut - Laurel Blair Salton Clark - whom we lost in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster.

Great posts, but....

These are wonderful posts from lots of great people, but I still haven't found out about Sally Ride! Any Pi Phis out there who can confirm that she's in your organization? If you're not sure, no problem - I've loved all the comments! The ones about Betty Crocker and Aunt Jemimah were funny. BTW - did you know that Mrs. Campbell, of Campbell Soups was a Kappa? Next time you pop open a can of tomato or cream of mushroom soup, check out the fleur-de-lis!

Another US astronaut, Judith Resnik, had been a sorority member from Carnegie Mellon. I think it was AEPhi which was no longer on campus by the time I was an undergraduate. She was killed in the Challenger Space Shuttle explosion in 1986.

If you want to take some intiative yourself, most, if not all, NPC sororities have a link that'll take you to a listing of their distinguished alumnae. I'd think content on an HQ's website can be considered official content.

Judging from earlier posts and visits to official HQ websites, you can rule out Sigma Kappa, Pi Beta Phi, and Kappa Delta. I can say and I know for sure that she's not an Alpha Gamma Delta either. You got 22 more to check out if you want.

Judith Resnik was indeed an AEPhi.
