It's either Charmaine, Chanikwa, or Chante. I forget.

I know but it was fun adding possibilities.

It might have been Chiante.

It's referenced that way on the DST wiki page...but she's the only one listed that way.

Although Wiki sucks, we always referenced "Founder Olive C. Jones." And many lists of the Founders include the "C."

Her middle name has always been elusive.

Ditto. I learned it that way as well.

My earlier agreement with ladygreek was more of a let's play a trick on Doris.

Hmmm. Maybe the C stands for Circumspect?

No official Delta list of the Founders includes a middle initial for Olive Jones. Check our national website out.

That is interesting, because on our official lists we do have other Founders listed with middle initials. So what does that tell you about the Wiki page?

I'll have to keep the "C" and assume that official lists without the "C" don't negate the existence of a middle name that may begin with a "C." Chapters got the "C" from somewhere.

My middle initial isn't listed everywhere and sometimes it's a matter of whether an initial was reported by whoever reported the name at the time.
