Alpha Phi Quarterly Editorial Policy The purpose of the Alpha Phi Quarterly and its content is to provide information and services to the membership of the Alpha Phi Fraternity, in keeping with the Fraternity’s status as a 501(c)(7) tax-exempt private membership club. The magazine is devoted to highlighting its members and matters of fraternal and college interest. The views expressed in the articles published in the Quarterly are those of the authors and their contributors, and do not necessarily represent the opinions of Alpha Phi Fraternity, its officers or staff.
When my daughter Kiley was born, I hoped one day she would be an Alpha Phi. I imagined her collegiate experience would be similar to mine – that she would immerse herself in chapter activities and perhaps serve as a chapter officer. It was a dream come true for me when she pledged Alpha Phi at the University of Nebraska (UNL). However, her experience as an Alpha Phi collegiate member was quite different from my own. She participated in recruitment as a sophomore – a rarity at UNL. And to make things even more interesting, she was a Navy midshipman. She wore a uniform on Thursdays, ran in her boots on campus and had very little discretionary time. It was Kiley’s challenge to make her Alpha Phi experience something she could manage and something she would enjoy. And it was Nu chapter’s challenge to find the value in Kiley’s membership despite her limitations. While it wasn’t easy or traditional, they did it. With the help of her chapter sisters, Kiley managed to blend her two worlds and had an extraordinary college experience that was uniquely her own. Today’s Alpha Phi collegiate members have complex lives. They are athletes, artists, musicians and entrepreneurs. Sorority membership is only one of many choices available to collegiate women these days, and participation in Alpha Phi is quite demanding. In return for their considerable investment of time, devotion and resources, we must support our members as they work their way through this phase of life’s challenges. Not everyone will do it the same way, and that’s okay. We encourage all of our members to make the Alpha Phi experience work for them. Kiley graduated in May and was commissioned as an ensign in the United States Navy. It was a proud day for her father and me – made more proud for me when I turned around during the commissioning ceremony and saw her Alpha Phi chapter sisters sitting in the audience. I will always be grateful to Nu chapter for being home to my daughter while she was away in college. As Kiley looks forward with excitement upon her future, I find reassurance in knowing that wherever she goes, near or far, Alpha Phi will always be an important part of her life (after all, she is a lifetime dues payer). Take care of yourself my daughter, my sister, “while we are absent one from the other.” Alpha Phi Toujours,
Linda Long Boland (Gamma Kappa-CSU/Long Beach) International President

Message from the International Executive Board
Many Ways to Serve, Many Ways to Gain
International Executive Board (IEB) directors take every opportunity possible to meet with collegiate and alumnae sisters in cities across North America. And whenever those sisters are also Fraternity volunteers, we inquire about their reasons for giving their time, talent and support to the Fraternity and Foundation. Not surprisingly, the answers reflect a broad range of motives: fond memories of their collegiate experience, delight in the benefits of alumnae friendship while serving others, a desire to model leadership behaviors for younger women and loyalty to a cause bigger than one’s self. These conversations re-affirm for all of us the importance of the commitments we made and remind us that, indeed, Alpha Phi is much bigger than ourselves. At the same time, today’s volunteers aren’t the women of our Founders’ generation, or even that of our own mothers and grandmothers. According to industry experts, volunteers in the 21st century are motivated by outcome-based projects, and they have little patience for endless rounds of meetings toward an unspecified mission. They are more likely to give of themselves when there is a particular set of valueadded tasks toward known goals rather than general relationship building. Today’s volunteer is happy to give, but she wants to know her giving results in an identifiable benefit. So it was with this insight – coupled with the recognition of the need to serve a growing base of larger chapters – that the alumnae strategy team (AST) and the collegiate chapter support committee 2
Alpha Phi Quarterly
(CCSC) went to work. After careful deliberation and consideration of our Fraternity’s needs as well as the interests of our volunteers, they recommended complementary new structures and launched pilot projects to test their ideas. Plans were adapted to reflect the feedback of the pilot groups, and Alpha Phi carefully launched the first phase of our new collegiate and alumnae chapter support environments. Instead of a small cadre of volunteers supported by an even smaller Executive Office team, we extended our reach. We added several new roles, each designed and defined with a particular focus. For example, collegiate chapter advisors will now be supported by a collegiate chapter administrator (CCA), a volunteer with only a small handful of other advisors to coach. Likewise, CCAs will receive support from a collegiate chapter manager (CCM), another volunteer with only a small handful of CCAs to coach. The same is true for alumnae. Alumnae chapter presidents will connect with an alumnae chapter administrator (ACA), a volunteer with knowledge of alumnae needs and a small, specific group of chapters to assist. These ACAs gather their support from an alumnae engagement manager (AEM), a volunteer having direct experience with alumnae in a particular section of North America. As a complement to these Alpha Phi-specific alumnae roles, a new alumnae Panhellenic administrator (APA) will also serve as the chief recruiter of Alpha Phi alumnae volunteers for Panhellenic endeavors in a local area.
At the same time, the Executive Office adapted to provide direct assistance to these new structures. Executive Director Linda Wells Kahangi (Zeta Delta-Iowa State) established a volunteer coordinator staff position, with a mission to recruit volunteers and recommend them for specific positions. This position complements the collegiate and alumnae departments currently in place. Jennifer Hutchinson Frobish (Epsilon Delta-Northern Illinois) now fills this position, following her tenure as North Central Midwest regional manager. Also, a new Phi Form, developed by the volunteer task force, was recently launched on alphaphi.org (keywords: Phi Form) to capture members᾿ contact information, experiences and interests. These two new support structures have created hundreds of volunteer opportunities – all of them defined, focused and with outcome-based goals. Beyond this, the collegiate and alumnae strategy committees are busily working on the definitions of other chapter support functions (many of which will be launched in the months to come), each creating even more volunteer roles. Finally, we would be remiss if we did not mention the many teams of volunteers supporting the other aspects of the Fraternity and Foundation. Housing, extension, recruitment, strategy and finance – to name just a few – continue to thrive, all thanks to your generous spirit and loyal hearts. There is no doubt some of the drivers behind contemporary volunteer service have evolved, and your Fraternity has responded by opening up a broad new set of opportunities for even more women to get involved. But what remains, what is most lasting, is our collective commitment to our Fraternity. It is a commitment guided by our shared purpose, focused on the betterment of Alpha Phi and the women’s fraternal experience.
Volunteer! Help us find the perfect volunteer opportunity for you in Alpha Phi! Or update us if you already volunteer. Fill out a Phi Form at alphaphi.org (keywords: Phi Form).

Sisters Meet While Stationed Overseas Phis don’t shy away from challenges. When the opportunity presented itself, two sisters each took different paths to the American Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. Michelle Thompson (Gamma Pi-Arizona State) and Sarah Wannarka (Delta Mu-Purdue) did not know each other before arriving, but soon discovered their shared affiliation. Michelle works with the U.S. Department of State, and Sarah is an assistant United States attorney with the U.S. Justice Department. In such a stressful war zone, the women have been comforted by the instant bond of sisterhood. Above: Sarah Wannarka, left, and Michelle Thompson meet while working in Kabul.

Gamma Zetas Enjoy Summer Reunion Gamma Zetas from the classes of 1963 and onward returned to Puget Sound for the university’s Summer Reunion Weekend. It was the second consecutive reunion for many of the sisters who reminisced about college days and shared details about their lives after college. They enjoyed meeting several collegians during an open house at the chapter.

TV Phis Discover Shared Sisterhood Three women who work for WBFF-TV in Baltimore, Md., discovered they are Alpha Phis. Melinda Roeder (Epsilon Iota-Duquesne) is a reporter, Jennifer Gilbert (Beta-Northwestern) is an anchor, and Janice Park (Delta Zeta-Maryland) is a reporter. The station was recently named Most Outstanding News Operation by the Chesapeake Associated Press Broadcasters Association, and Melinda was named Best Reporter for the region. As a trio, they have more than a dozen regional Emmy Awards combined and a long list of other honors. Above: Janice Park, Jennifer Gilbert and Melinda Roeder pose in front of the anchor desk at WBFF-TV in Baltimore, Md.
High School Friends Are Sisters Beta Betas Celebrate 50 Years of Sisterhood Michigan State (Beta Beta) sisters who graduated in 1963 celebrated their 50-year anniversary with a reunion during Michigan State’s Alumni Reunion Days. A highlight of the gathering was a visit to the chapter house, which was in the midst of improvements including the installation of a fire sprinkler system, enhanced lighting and other summer projects. The 2013 reunion was one of several throughout the years, the most recent in 2011 to visit Philadelphia and the Brandywine Valley of Pennsylvania.

Three high school friends from Richmond, Va., went their separate ways to college and all joined Alpha Phi at different schools. Katie Davies (Theta Iota-James Madison), Blair Bartholf (Beta Mu-Alabama) and Marissa Stevens (Eta Omicron-Virginia Tech) are pictured during a recent 8k race they ran together with Blair’s mother, who is also an Alpha Phi, Tiffany Adams Bartholf (Zeta Iota-Virginia).
Alpha Phis Lobby on Capitol Hill In April, Alpha Phis visited Washington, D.C., to educate Congress on the value of the Greek system. For several years, inter/national fraternity and sorority leaders have worked together to build a positive presence on Capitol Hill that helps to protect the fraternal experience. Those efforts are strengthened by the Fraternity and Sorority Political Action Committee (FSPAC), which seeks to provide financial aid to the campaigns of federal office candidates who support the objectives of fraternity life. While visiting Congressional leaders and their staffs, Alpha Phi collegiate representatives Kirsten Mehnert (Delta Nu-Maine) and Karly Moen (Pi-North Dakota) joined hundreds of other Greek leaders who advocated for preserving the value of charitable deductions, protecting the freedom of association and due process rights of students, educating leaders about our efforts to combat hazing and passing the Collegiate Housing and Infrastructure Act (CHIA) to improve collegiate housing. CHIA has bi-partisan support in both the House and Senate. The bill would allow donations to housing projects for non-profit student housing, such as an Alpha Phi house, to be tax-deductible as a similar donation would be for university-owned housing. FSPAC needs resources to advance these important issues, and Alpha Phi is grateful to those many sisters who have donated to the FSPAC over the years. Special thanks goes to the Virginia (Zeta Iota) house corporation board (HCB) for making the first donation from an HCB to the FSPAC’s new independent expenditure account. “HCBs stand to benefit from this change in the tax code that permits donations for housing projects to be deductible to the donor,” says Virginia’s HCB President Kelly Benedetti Walsh (Beta Omicron-Bowling Green State). “Supporting the passage of CHIA through an FSPAC donation should be a budget line item for every Alpha Phi HCB.”
Enjoying a break from lobbying Congress, Alpha Phis gather at the FSPAC annual dinner where Alpha Phi’s International Executive Board and National House Corporation Board were recognized for their contributions to the FSPAC. Pictured (from left) are Karly Moen (Pi-North Dakota), Kirsten Mehnert (Delta Nu-Maine), Coree Smith (Epsilon Theta-Northern Iowa), Bonnie K. Arthur (Delta Delta-Oklahoma City), Riva Litman (Lambda-UC/Berkeley), Meghan Snyder (Epsilon Iota-Duquesne), International President Linda Long Boland (Gamma Kappa-CSU/Long Beach), Jackee Schools (Eta Lambda-George Mason), Val Lawlor (Omicron-Missouri) and Kim Brannon (Gamma Rho-Penn State).
One of the highlights of the spring visits to Capitol Hill is the opportunity it gives collegians not only to come to Washington, D.C., but to be trained by the country’s top lobbyists on how Capitol Hill works. It also provides the experience of advocating at the highest level for a cause in which they believe. An alumna of the FSPAC collegiate experience, Riva Litman (Lambda-UC/Berkeley), shared, “I am grateful for the experience Alpha Phi provided me while I was in college – not only to develop my leadership skills, but to have a front row seat to the legislative process.” Riva now works on Capitol Hill for a member of the leadership of Congress, and she was recently named a top press secretary on Capitol Hill. Please consider making a contribution to the FSPAC. Contact FSPAC Board Members Val Lawlor (Omicron-Missouri) or Bonnie Arthur (Delta DeltaOklahoma City) at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Sisters Collaborate on Meaningful Fashion Brand Kristen Davis and Cara Prodanovich (both Theta IotaJames Madison) have launched a startup company that offers luxury fashion goods produced via sustainable means and fuses the love of style with the love of culture. The Hand Made On Earth brand (handmadeearth.com) strives to empower people around the world, especially women. The company’s artisans are skilled seamstresses who live in rural villages in the Himalayan Mountains. Cara and Kristen’s company provides wages three times the average in efforts to provide them with a better standard of living. Additionally, their hand sewn, one-of-a-kind items are made out of primarily recycled material to minimize impact on the environment. The sisters note that they are not in the business of making money, but in the business of making change. They hope to reinvest their profits into their business model and replicate it in other areas of the world.

Alpha Phi Quarterly
Emerging Leaders Institute Four Emerging Leaders Institutes (ELI) were held this summer at Butler University (Indianapolis, Ind.). This interactive learning experience included large and small group discussions, trust building activities and personal reflection. Topics ranged from values clarification to communication skills to stewardship. A total of 199 emerging leaders attended the Institutes and received a full scholarship funded by Alpha Phi Foundation that included travel, lodging and meals. These sophomores and juniors showed great potential as leaders!
Challenge Course Members put their values into action by participating in a challenge program. Through activities such as a climbing wall, zip line and trust fall, they utilized individual strengths to enhance the team experience. With effective communication, team building and collaboration, these women got out of their comfort zones.
“ELI helped me build a stronger connection to Alpha Phi and reinforced that I made the right decision by becoming an Alpha Phi.” – Jaime Rehm (Eta Mu-Marquette), Session 4
Alpha Phi Quarterly
“I couldn’t have asked for or imagined a better experience than ELI. It gave me the confidence, knowledge, tools and support to reach the goals I have set for myself. It has better prepared me to lead my chapter and prepared me for any endeavors I attempt in the professional world. Each person who was part of the session I attended is now someone I know I can trust and rely upon.” - Claudia Ash (Theta Nu-Appalachian State), Session 1
Alumnae Panel Participants had the opportunity to see how Alpha Phi is a lifetime commitment by interacting with Indianapolis area alumnae during a panel moderated by staff.
Values Clarification Students participated in an exercise that allowed them to determine their core values. Fall 2013

Listening Activity Participants learned the art of listening and other communication skills through an interactive activity, where every person had a specific role to achieve an overall goal.
“I found that ELI helped with my self-confidence, leadership skills and knowledge of Alpha Phi values and ritual. I left ELI feeling empowered and even more in love with Alpha Phi!” – Paige Heilbrun (Epsilon Chi-Cal Poly), Session 3
Content Review Each small group takes a day of content to review with the entire group. Skits, songs and games were used to express what was learned during the day and made it a memorable activity.
“ELI has had such a significant impact on my life. It has given me that extra push to fulfill those ambitions and goals I have set for my chapter and myself. I believe it is an opportunity that no one should pass up. I am so thankful for being able to experience ELI.” – McKenzie Paterson (Alpha-Syracuse), Session 2
Thank You, Alpha Phi Foundation! The Fraternity would wholeheartedly like to thank Alpha Phi Foundation for their generous and continued support of the Emerging Leaders Institute.

Alpha Phi Quarterly
Years of the Alpha Phi Quarterly Highlights from the magazine through the years By Christine Spiegel July 1888: The first issue of the Alpha Phi Quarterly is published.
The first issue of the Alpha Phi Quarterly magazine was published in July 1888. It displayed a plain orange wrapper, included 20 pages and had a circulation of 250 copies. It was created as a magazine, and continues to be distributed as such, consistently publishing for 125 years. Today, it reaches more than 130,000 readers via mail, and issues of the magazine back through Fall 2000 are available online. In its century and a quarter, the magazine has seen continuous changes during its own evolution into an awardwinning publication. In recognition of the 125th anniversary of the Alpha Phi Quarterly, we share some noteworthy moments from the magazine’s history and salute those who have devoted themselves to its journey. Perhaps no other source provides such an in-depth and fascinating record of Alpha Phi than the Alpha Phi Quarterly. From accounts of chapter installations to profiles of members, from listings of addresses to Convention reports, the Quarterly serves as an unmatched resource. Not only does the Quarterly preserve so much of Alpha Phi’s history, it also reflects history itself. The evolution of the magazine parallels the evolution of the Fraternity, higher education and the women’s fraternal experience.
Alpha Phi Quarterly
Beginning in 1872 with the Syracuse (Alpha) chapter, the Founders and early members of Alpha Phi contributed to the “Literary Cabinet,” a handwritten journal devoted to the writings and work of the Fraternity sisters. The journal was the pre-cursor to the Quarterly.
After several years of discussion among members, the publication of the Alpha Phi Quarterly was authorized at the 1887 Alpha Phi Convention. Everything, down to the number of pages (24), was arranged. A Chicago printer, Jameson and Morse, was secured, and Northwestern (Beta) chapter was given editorial reign for the first year, with Minnie Moulding [Goodsmith] (Beta-Northwestern) appointed editorin-chief. Associate editors were from the four existing chapters: Syracuse (Alpha), Northwestern (Beta), DePauw (Gamma) and Boston (Eta).
The purpose of the magazine was “to devote our pages to the discussion of Fraternity questions, to exchange items, Alpha Phi news, as well as to recognize Alpha Phi’s literary talent.”– July 1888 Quarterly In an 1895 Quarterly, Editor-in-Chief Elizabeth Northup (EtaBoston) urged all members to take up a subscription.
In July 1888, the Alpha Phi Quarterly made its debut. Cora Allen [McElroy] (Beta-Northwestern) became the Quarterly’s first editor when Minnie Moulding resigned before beginning the position to get married. The magazine was to “report the entire workings of the society and the growth of each chapter, as well as the whereabouts of absent sisters to whom we have pledged undying fidelity.” Members were invited to participate “not only by subscribing, but by sending any article or item of news of common interest.” The first issue contained only text and two illustrations – a drawing of the first chapter house at Syracuse (Alpha) and one of a piano that was part of an advertisement. It was the fifth sorority magazine published.
1887 Quarterly Editors The editor position itself and the responsibilities associated with it have changed in 125 years. The first editor was a volunteer who served in the position on what today is considered a “part-time” basis. Today, the editor is a full-time member of the Executive Office staff.
1888 Cora Allen McElroy (Beta-Northwestern), 1888-90 Cora wrote several articles for the Quarterly while editor, and her impact on the magazine was honored even after her death. For years, the magazine carried a Cora Allen McElroy memorial article and other tributes. Cora remained involved in Alpha Phi and the Greek world throughout her life. She was a National Panhellenic Conference delegate for 16 years, chairman of NPC from 1911-12, Alpha Phi’s National President from 1912-14 and chairman of the Fraternity’s Endowment Fund for six years.
“Don’t sit back with the complacent fancy that you have done your whole duty when you refuse the small subscription price. If the magazine is not interesting to you personally, the welfare of Alpha Phi is, presumably, and the reputation of the fraternity depends more upon the character of its publication than you perhaps think … So it is a personal matter after all with both active member and alumna, and a question of loyalty. Have you done your whole duty, sisters new and old?”
Black and white photographs are introduced in the May 1897 Quarterly and included only sparingly at first.
1895 Jennie DeRemer Thorburn Sanford (Alpha-Syracuse), 1890-92 Jennie served as National President of the Fraternity from 1887-88 before being chosen as editor. She was celebrated as one of those who was instrumental in the building of Syracuse’s (Alpha) first chapter house – the first sorority house in America – in 1886. Jennie also helped organize the Southern California Alumnae Association.
Edith Lynch Bolster (Eta-Boston), 1892-94
Elizabeth C. Northup (Eta-Boston), 1894-97
Edith was initiated at the 1886 Convention in Boston – the first Convention to have an initiation service as part of its program. During her time as editor, the exchange section became prominent in the magazine, and several pages of each issue were devoted to excerpts from other sorority and fraternity magazines.
Most of the articles during her time as editor reflected her own personal convictions. She wrote, “The editorial department must inevitably have a personal bias if it is to become anything more than a mere record of the fraternity’s official decrees … Up to a certain point, being a mouthpiece is no unworthy function, but it has its limits.”
A Chicago Tribune article titled “Girl Graduates Again” from July 27, 1890, judged the Alpha Phi Quarterly as taking “high rank among college periodicals.”
Elizabeth introduced columns which were designed to bring the larger world of fraternities and education into focus. She also introduced “Sparks From Many Forges,” a column featuring the work and news of alumnae, reflecting the key role the increasing number of alumnae were playing in the Fraternity. Elizabeth was elected National President in 1897-98 and continued to write humor columns for the Quarterly until 1943.
Alpha Phi Quarterly
The July 1904 Quarterly introduced a series of essays chronicling “distinctive college customs” on the various campuses where its chapters were housed. Each offered a view of life on the Fraternity’s 12 campuses, underscoring differences. M. Pamelia Clough (Theta-Michigan) elaborated on the vast distance over which the link of sisterhood stretched in a Quarterly article titled “Alpha Phi in the World.” It highlighted the fact that Fraternity members now resided not only all over the United States, but also all over the world— from Japan to India.
The August 1900 issue reported the death of Founder Kate Hogoboom Gilbert and pictured her with her college daughter, Ruth Gilbert [Becker] (Alpha-Syracuse), the first Alpha Phi daughter to be initiated into the Fraternity.
November 1902: The Quarterly, thriving under the direction of Martha Keefe Phillips (Alpha-Syracuse), issued a special 30th anniversary edition in honor of the Fraternity’s birthday. It was mailed to all Alpha Phi sisters. A photograph of the Founders was included, followed by a dedicatory essay to Dr. Wellesley P. Coddington (professor and advisor to the Founders), as well as notes from the Founders and a history of the Fraternity, titled “Thirty Years.”
“Our sisters, women of ideals and of similar college opportunities,” she wrote, are “scattered all over the earth, yet linked each to each in the golden chain binding us in fraternity.”
The history was written to “show to all our readers the growth of the fraternity in thirty years. From the work of ten young women we have seventeen chapters, more than a thousand members, with a constantly widening circle of influence and usefulness.”
1900 Viola Vernon Sutter (Alpha-Syracuse), 1897-1900 Viola, born in Bologna, Italy, attended Syracuse University for just a year before leaving college and traveling abroad. She wrote for the Northern Christian Advocate and in 1897 wrote and published a book of poems. When she became editor, an issue of the time was whether alumnae or collegians would be able to make better decisions on behalf of the Fraternity moving forward. Viola’s articles expressed both sides.
Cora Stranahan Woodward (Delta-Cornell), 1900 Cora served as editor-in-chief for just one issue before resigning and assuming the post of exchange editor. She was National President from 1894-96 and Visiting Delegate from 1905-06. Based on her experience as Visiting Delegate, she urged the expansion of Alpha Phi into the Western states in her message to Convention delegates in 1906.
Alpha Phi Quarterly
1902 Jessie Tyler Peck (Alpha-Syracuse), 1900-02 During Jessie’s time, Alpha Phi and all sororities were still considered to be in their formative years. The “Chapter Round Table” section of the magazine became prominent of this time. The event of the greatest long-range significance covered by the Quarterly at this time was the first meeting of the Inter-Sorority Conference on May 24, 1902, in Chicago. Called on behalf of Alpha Phi National President Margaret Mason Whitney (ThetaMichigan), its purpose “was to discuss matters of vital importance to fraternities, particularly the evils connected with the present methods of rushing and pledging…”
1904 Martha Aubrie Keefe Phillips (Alpha-Syracuse), 1902-06 Martha’s first job out of college was at the Heath Publishing House in Boston. Known as “Sister Martha,” she pursued matters of subscription for the Quarterly. By 1906, when Martha resigned, the Quarterly’s subscription list had grown significantly from 295 to 950.
Elizabeth Stryker Brown Holbrook (Theta-Michigan), 1906-13 The major focus of the Quarterly during Elizabeth’s editorship was the InterSorority Conference (which would become the National Panhellenic Conference). Magazines also included Panhellenic Notes, News of the Fraternity World and many photographs of solemnfaced sisters, as it was not the norm of the times to smile in photos.
In the 1900s and 1910s, the magazine began showing greater interest in Panhellenism (Alpha Phi was one of five women’s groups to found what would become the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) in 1902). Panhellenic delegates from various groups are pictured in the January 1913 Quarterly.
Beginning in 1918 and through 1922, under the direction of former editor Cora Allen McElroy, appeals for donations to the Fraternity’s Endowment Fund (which helped pay for a member’s subscription to the magazine in addition to several other significant Fraternity expenses) appeared in the Quarterly over the course of several years (at left from September 1920 issue). Cora’s goal was to build up the small fund to an amazing $50,000 by the time of the Fraternity’s 50th anniversary in 1922.
Many articles described the YWCA “foyer” in Roanne, France, which had been financially supported by Alpha Phi. It served as a social center for female munitions workers who were uprooted during and after the war. This photo appeared in the March 1919 Quarterly.
During the World War I years (1914-18), chapter news focused on members doing their part to help in the war effort. The Alpha Phi Quarterly reduced its page numbers and suspended the publication of photographs between 1917-18 in an effort to conserve resources.
“This dream will become a reality,” Cora wrote, “if every Alpha Phi, who cannot give fifty dollars, will send in five dollars promptly to the Fund.”
At the 1920 Convention, with the magazine’s increased circulation, size and production costs, it was decided to raise the annual subscription price of the magazine from $1 to $2 and discontinue the printing of advertisements. A plan for life subscriptions was set up, and four years later the lifetime subscription to the magazine became part of one’s initiation fee.
Cora’s hard work, coupled with the generosity of Alpha Phi members, paid off, and the goal was reached.
Frances Gay Perkins (Iota-Wisconsin), 1913-18
Grace J. Sawyer (Alpha-Syracuse), 1919
Ruth Sanders Thomson (Beta-Northwestern), 1919-44
In 1917, Frances proposed to the National Panhellenic Conference of Editors that the 18 member groups discontinue their individual publications and come together to produce one publication for all, since she considered all sororities are “fired with the same inspiration and work for the same great ideals.” Fortunately, this was vetoed.
Grace played many roles in ensuring the success of Alpha Phi. She was a Visiting Delegate in 1903-04, housemother at Oregon (Tau) when the chapter was founded in 1915 and at Syracuse (Alpha) that following year, and she was the National Panhellenic Congress delegate.
Ruth initially declined to edit the Quarterly because she wasn’t a journalist, but accepted when she married George Franklin Thomson, who was. She often referred to her husband as her “co-editor.” The two were responsible for a new cover design that continued for more than a quarter century.
World War I had ended in November of 1918, but the issues Grace edited in 1919 continued to be weighted by war reports.
Ruth served as chairman of the National Panhellenic Editors’ Conference. She was also historian of the Fraternity and wrote The History of Alpha Phi 1872-1902, which was published in June 1943.

Alpha Phi Quarterly
“Plan Wisely and Live Economically” The Great Depression that overshadowed the 1930s impacted articles that appeared in the Quarterly during those years and the operation of the Fraternity itself. There were the usual lighthearted news of sisters’ lives and accomplishments, but there were also reports about unemployment, the New Deal and saving money. In the January 1933 issue, an article by President Margaretta Orem Lindsay (ZetaGoucher) titled “Plan Wisely and Live Economically” informed members how the Executive Board has “pared down its budget in every way possible … and made tentative plans for even greater economy should the occasion arise.”
“This is not pessimism. It is just intelligent preparedness … In matters of finance each chapter is an individual unit and must stand on its own feet.”
Ruth Sanders Thomson (Beta-Northwestern), editor since 1919, incorporated a new design to the January 1932 cover which continued for more than 25 years. The design
“The General Treasury cannot meet chapter deficits. We can only advise and urge that each group plan wisely and live economically.”
featured a solid bordeaux background with the Ursa Major constellation, one silver stripe to represent every decade of the magazine at the time and 10 stripes for the 10 Founders.
“The Quarterly has written the history of a restricted group’s activities within a larger group of ever changing educational and cultural advancement. An analysis of this record would show the enlarged opportunity in the scheme of education for women – the progress of women’s freedom – the evolution of differing accepted standards of morals and manners – the numerous phases of women’s growing independence in their contribution to the world’s knowledge, betterment and happiness.”
“Gable Becom es a Gopher”
“…With pride and expectation, I rise to offer the toast. ‘To the Quarterly’s next 50 years, may they be pregnant with the records of a greater finer Alpha Phi.’”
A September 1932 article profiled Marion Dale Roper (Beta Delta-UCLA), who competed in the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles, Calif., in the women’s high diving event. The caption at the time read, “She stood halfway to heaven.”

— Founder Clara Bradley Burdette (“Mother Burdette”) wrote in the January 1938 Quarterly in recognition of the magazine’s 50th anniversary.
A piece titled “Gable Becomes a Gopher” in the March 1939 issue describes how Mary Louise McLaughlin (Epsilon-Minnesota) “stalked” and sold Gable a homecoming button. The note reads, “Clark Gable (pitter patter) stopped over in Minneapolis last fall enroute to California after a hunting trip in northern Minnesota.”
During the years of World War II (1939-45), the magazine was filled with details about members and chapters doing their part, including a large number of
sisters featured with every issue for their involvement with the Red Cross and in women’s branches of the armed forces.

Articles also noted the work of sisters who contributed to the Maple Leaf Fund, launched by the Fraternity to support war efforts. The President at the time, Dorothy Stewart Kernohan (Xi-Toronto) was Canadian (Canada entered the war before the U.S.) and influential in creating the fund. Two projects in particular benefited from it: afghans were donated to mothers and children in bombed areas of Britain, and war relief stamps were sold to purchase surgical kits for emergency use among civilian victims of air raids in England. Conventions of 1942 and 1944 were also postponed because of the war.

Marian Wiley Keys (Alpha-Syracuse), 1944-52 Marian came from an Alpha Phi family consisting of her aunt, two sisters, two cousins and her mother, who was National President from 1902-04. She told the tale of moving into the Alpha Phi chapter house for a summer at Syracuse with her parents when she was three months old.
The Make Do and Mend government campaign of the time encouraged people to ration, recycle and reuse old clothes and other fabrics and resources. Stemming from this was the popularity of knitting clubs. Several examples of rationing and knitting appeared in the Quarterly. Pictured in the June 1944 Quarterly are Milwaukee alumnae Frances Cutler Van Patten (BetaNorthwestern) and Abigail Shay Bassett (Theta-Michigan).
Marian’s lifetime of service for the Fraternity included being Visiting Delegate in 1925-26 and writing the first pledge handbook. She served several times on the Executive Board and was International President from 1954-58. She was also elected chairman of the National Panhellenic Editors’ Conference. Marian always noted her favorite job was editing the Quarterly. She continued to contribute after she resigned to ensure the early history of Alpha chapter and the Founders would not be lost.
A January 1942 article titled “Alpha Phi Stamp Funds Provide Four Surgical Kits, More Than One Hundred Afghans Have Also Been Made” reported on the progress of the Maple Leaf Fund efforts and called for additional support. “The war that was waged across the seas and was ours only as we took the suffering and the needs of others as a charge upon our hearts, now comes home to us and makes us one with all who have borne its brunt these long months, these weary years.”
”Why aren't you a nurse?“ A March 1943 article titled “Why Aren’t You a Nurse?” urged members to consider a career in nursing “to fulfill the armed forces need for 3,000 nurses a month.” It read, “You have bravely sent your brothers, friends, dear ones, away to military service. Now, can you be content to merely knit, or serve in ordinary ways, and let someone else take care of the wounded? Your country needs you and is willing to assist financially; and Alpha Phi and other groups are contributing to scholarship funds … You can help win the war by becoming a nurse now. In post-war days, your opportunities at home and abroad will be unlimited.”

The October 1950 Quarterly included a message from President Clara Ingwersen Gregson (Iota-Wisconsin) reflecting the state of the world at the time and hope for the future, “The world again faces the confusions and the sorrows of another war. With unrest, suspicion and insecurity rampant, we have need more than ever before of the comfort and stability of those institutions which have withstood the test of time – among which we count our fraternal ties.”
Articles of the 1950s reflected the issues of the time, including the Korean War and communism, racial discrimination and post-war economic expansion. Reflective of that time were reports noted and photos of members “entertaining.”
Following the official adoption of cardiac aid an Alpha Phi priority in 1946 and the establishment of the Alpha Phi Foundation in 1956, it was common to view photos of and reports about chapters’ work toward the Heart Campaign and National Heart Week. This has remained a priority for both Alpha Phi and the magazine through the present.
“Communism: Know What It's All Abou
March 1950: There were a significant number of photos of people entertaining, or hosting teas, in this decade. In this photo, Pauline Warning pours a cup of tea to honor Georgia Neese Clark (Upsilon-Washburn), the first female Treasurer of the United States, serving from 1949-53.
A two-page article in the June 1952 magazine was a suggested list of summer reading titled “Communism: Know What It’s All About!” and an October 1953 reprinted article was written by J. Edgar Hoover about “Communism and the College Student.”
Summer 1957: Sisters sell lollipops to promote heart health and the Alpha Phi Foundation.
Margaret Knights Hultsch (Beta Nu-Duke, Rho-Ohio State, Beta-Northwestern and Omicron-Missouri), 1958-92
Janet began as assistant editor in October 1948 and became editor four years later. Her greatest innovation was the introduction of photographic covers. During her time as editor, the Quarterly reported on two momentous events – the acquisition of the Fraternity’s first headquarters building in Evanston, Ill. and the launch of Alpha Phi Foundation – both occurring in 1957. During her term, Janet brought a new look to the magazine, adding the first photo to a cover (January 1954), making changes to the contents page, incorporating more photos throughout the magazine and including the first inserted section on color pages (“Complete Rushing and Recommendation Data 1956-57,” Summer 1956).

Janet Powers McGurn (Beta-Northwestern), 1952-57
During her editorship, Marge was a pioneer for the magazine and for Greek magazines in general, serving as chairman of the National Panhellenic Editors’ Conference from 1961-63. The magazine received numerous writing and design awards, including being voted top sorority magazine by other Greek editors several times in the 1960s and 1970s. It continued to consistently win in the 1980s in National Interfraternity Foundation and College Fraternity Editors’ Association competitions. In 1969, the Quarterly became the first sorority magazine to be professionally designed. Paul Fisher, professor of magazine design at the University of Missouri School of Journalism designed the magazine for 23 years with Marge. Marge received the Ivy Vine Award in 1988, presented by Alpha Phi International in honor of outstanding service to the Greek world. Marge has been published in national publications such as Good Housekeeping and The Wall Street Journal as well. Marge is the Quarterly's longest-serving editor.

Marge was the Quarterly’s first full-time editor and began her term working out of Alpha Phi’s headquarters in Evanston, Ill. After marrying and moving to Columbia, Mo., she continued another 30 years working out of her home – eventually moving from full- to part-time.
The first photo appears on the cover in January 1954,
The Summer 1957 magazine included an article titled “Oh to be the Wife of a Congressman! By Two Who Know,” written by Marie Thomsen Schoeppel (Nu-Nebraska), wife of former Kansas Senator Andrew F. Schoeppel, and Norma Wells Younger (SigmaWashington), wife of former California Congressman J. Arthur Younger.
The Quarterly of the 1970s included quite the range of topics – from letters supporting soldiers in Vietnam to notes about protests against the war, to articles about women’s roles and the Equal Rights Amendment. There was also discussion about consumerism, drug abuse and hazing among collegians and the troubled fraternal movement.
Fall 1960: "Politicos – Chicago area Alpha Phis greet Toni Hatfield at hotel convention headquarters.” Summer 1972
The Summer 1973 Quarterly article titled “The Fraternity’s Greatest Concerns” noted “In the seventies the role of the woman in society is undergoing vast evolutionary changes. So, too, the role of the sorority woman has been affected.
The issues of the 1960s most covered in the Quarterly were women’s rights, status of women in employment and education, Vietnam and race discrimination among others. The Winter 1965 issue profiled a sister who volunteered with the Peace Corps shortly after it was established. A Winter 1960 article titled “The Right to Select” stated,
She has to defend her organization and prove the worth of the sorority to many.”
“Whether it is wise or desirable for a fraternity or a sorority to be interracial as far as its membership is concerned is a question for that organization to decide and that organization alone.”
Winter 1973: “This is Alpha Phi. All membership records, which formerly consumed one whole room, are now stored on this reel of magnetic tape a mere ten inches in diameter!”
The Summer 1963 issue celebrates another milestone for the Quarterly and includes a seven-page article, “A Memoir on a 75th Anniversary,” written by Marian Wiley Keys (AlphaSyracuse), historian at that time. She writes, "…In fraternity journalism, as in the popular magazine of the day, great changes are taking place, and the magazine of yesterday bears little resemblance to the one of today save in the name. What the magazine of tomorrow will be – who knows?"
Winter 1975: “Ball State Phis find that there’s nothing like sorority uniforms to create chapter unity and identity on an unhoused campus. The suits all match. Chapter members express individuality with their own ties, sweaters and blouses.”
“The Adventure of being a Wife”
“Marriage is the most exhilarating, self-satisfying career a woman can have”
The Winter 1976 issue featured the first full-color cover, along with some internal color photos. It introduced the new Executive Office in Evanston, Ill.
“Crusading for Planned Parenthood” Feature story headlines from the 1970s. Fall 2013
Alpha Phi Quarterly
Hot topics during the 1990s included extension, recruitment and the future of the fraternity system. Articles about Watchcare and risk management focused on the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse, warnings about acquaintance rape and abuse. Alpha Phi International’s progress in the world of technology was touted, as Alpha Phi became the first NPC group to launch a website, featured in the Spring 1996 issue.
Recurring topics during the 1980s included the increasing issue of alcohol and drug use on campus and the effects of hazing and other “demeaning” activities. A new hot topic was “legacies,” or daughters, granddaughters or sisters of Alpha Phis. Women’s rights and the feminist movement were discussed. A Winter 1982 “Phi Mail” letter noted “I’m the product of my era, but I also have a daughter, 23, who is articulate about her generation and the feminist movement… So I also find objectionable the use of the word ‘girls’ by Quarterly correspondents in the ‘Bear Tracks’ section.”
The magazine soon after began using the word “women” rather than “girls” to describe sisters of college age and older.
Spring 1992: Kimberly Williams (BetaNorthwestern) debuts in “Father of the Bride.” The magazine won first place in the National Interfraternity Foundation's Publications Awards for the article “Should Women’s Fraternities Go Co-Ed?,” printed in the Winter 1994 Quarterly.
Fall 1988: “The Alpha Phi Quarterly, celebrating its centennial, was in the spotlight all of Convention week. Posing with the Quarterly display in the Memorabilia Room are, from left, current editor Marge Hultsch, alumnae editor Ann Emrich and former editor Janet McGurn.”
Virginia “Ginny” Burson Struble (Beta Kappa-Denison), 1994-95
1980 Winter 1980: The Quarterly was “named the Top Women’s Fraternity Magazine out of a field of twentysix contenders by a panel of Greek fraternity editors.”
Ginny became editor after serving as International President (1990-94). Her service to Alpha Phi has also included being a Foundation Board director, NPC delegate and on the International Housing Committee – all within the same timeframe.
Alpha Phi Quarterly
Lesli Davis Clarke [previously Nadolski] (Beta-Northwestern), 1995-98 In addition to serving as editor, Lesli was an advisor to Emory (Theta Pi). In one of her messages to readers, she said, “In many ways, the Quarterly is the heart and soul of Alpha Phi. It is what keeps us connected, and it belongs to all of us.”
“Looking for a Fun Tax Shelter? Then Buy a Chapter House” Feature story headline from the 1980s.
Winter 1990: Lynn Zimmerman (BetaNorthwestern), Miss Illinois, was third runner-up in the Miss America Pageant. Today, Lynn goes by Jeri Ryan and is a wellknown actress, most recently seen on ABC’s “Body of Proof.”
The Fraternity world and Alpha Phi joined in the push for “political correctness” in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and the Quarterly followed suit. Changes in terminology included referring to “recruitment” rather than “rush,” “new member” instead of “pledge,” “holiday” instead of “Christmas,” and so on.
Anne Pratt, 1998-99 Anne was the first member of another Greek organization (Kappa Delta) to serve as editor of the Quarterly. When she was hired in the late 1990s, her employment was somewhat progressive on Alpha Phi’s part. Today, there are a significant number of editors who work for magazines of fraternities/sororities other than their own.
The Spring 1996 article titled “Alpha Phi Enters Cyberspace” noted, “Lately, many Alpha Phis have discovered the benefits of e-mail and the Internet … New technologies provide wonderful opportunities to increase unity and sisterhood, foster greater alumnae involvement and facilitate faster, more economical communication amongst members … The Internet is an important part of Alpha Phi’s future.”
The Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S. were at the forefront of the minds of sisters immediately following the tragedy, and the magazine reflected the mourning, efforts to assist those affected immediately after and the changes to the way of life moving forward, including involvement in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. A Winter 2002 article titled “Sept. 11: Remembering and Caring” noted, “Alpha Phis responded to the Sept. 11 national tragedy with donations of time and money, as well as support for the people and communities directly affected.
In the early 2000s, the Quarterly followed the magazine trend of the time and featured “themed” issues that carried throughout the majority of the magazine. The “Protecting Yourself” theme of the Spring 2004 issue, for example, included topics of self-defense, identity theft, acquaintance rape and health screenings and extended to “protecting the leaders of tomorrow” via training and other collegiate programs.
More than $15,000 was raised for the Alpha Phi Sept. 11 Disaster Relief Fund, established by the Fraternity and Foundation.” The article paid tribute to the sister who was killed in the World Trade Center attacks, Kristy Irvine Ryan (Zeta Psi-Dayton). The Summer 2002 Quarterly featured sisters who served in the military and emergency services. Sisters also shared their involvement with or response to natural disasters. The 2004 tsunami in East Asia, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and Hurricane Sandy in 2012 were noted among others.
The age of new media and social media that brought about significant changes in the 2000s and continues today has impacted how Alpha Phi – and the Quarterly – collects information from sisters and communicates with them. The first complete issue of the magazine to be posted online for sisters to view, download, print and share was the Fall 2000 Quarterly. Today, most material is submitted online and most correspondence is conducted via email – a far cry from the handwritten submissions that were mailed to the editor for the first issues.
Christine Spiegel (1999-Present) Christine is also a member of another Greek organization (Delta Zeta), but has been with the magazine long enough that she now knows more about Alpha Phi and its members than her own group. Under Christine, the magazine has continued the awardwinning trend set by Marge Hultsch, annually receiving awards for both writing and design. Among the more prestigious is the Fraternity Communications Association Fred F. Yoder Award.
Coming Soon! You’ll be able to view, search, print and download historic issues of the Quarterly online! Alpha Phi Foundation will generously be funding a digital archiving project, beginning with the first issue and moving forward. The project will begin this year.

Tribute to an Alumnae Editor There have been a number of women who have also served as assistant or associate editors and alumnae editors over the years. We would like to recognize one of those women, who passed away this year.
Ann Freeman Emrich (Beta Gamma-Colorado), Alumnae Editor, 1964-92 Ann started writing for her hometown newspaper at age 16. She worked for radio stations in Colorado, completed freelance assignments for the Denver Post and other newspapers and periodicals, and she wrote throughout her life. Her older sister, Eleanor Freeman Hutchinson (Beta Gamma-Colorado), led her to Alpha Phi. Perhaps most popular among Ann’s contributions to the Quarterly was the career series she created to introduce women to a variety of careers and feature successful Alpha Phis who work in them. The series ran 10 years.
Fall 2000 and Summer 2002 Quarterly covers show two different masthead designs of the 2000s. The redesign was implemented in the Fall 2001 issue.
“From Nail Biter to Celebrity Manicurist” “Special Agent’s Career Reads Like a Movie” Feature story headlines from the 2000s.
Ann held nearly every office in the Denver, Colo., alumnae chapter, being involved more than 20 years. In 1986, she was presented Alpha Phi International’s Michaelanean Award for her dedicated service on the local level. Ann was the longest-serving editor in an assistant position – 28 years. During her service, her son, Gary was a photographer and provided several cover photos for the magzine.

Announcing the Alumnae Affinity Program
The alumnae strategy team (AST) is pleased to announce the launch of its alumnae affinity program. The purpose of the program is to encourage, facilitate and support the relationship of alumnae with their collegiate chapters. This includes enhancing communications via social media and in person. The hope is that these connections will not only keep new graduates connected to Alpha Phi immediately following graduation, but actively engage alumnae in Alpha Phi membership for a lifetime. To begin fostering and rekindling the connections of alumnae to their chapter sisters and Alpha Phi, a group of pilot chapters has been selected:

Those who are members of the selected chapters are asked to assist your alumnae affinity specialist (AAS) volunteer (listed above) by making sure your contact information is updated and helping locate missing alumnae members from your chapter. Visit alphaphi.org (keywords: missing members) to view the listing of missing sisters and help track them down. Alpha Phi International looks forward to seeing the growth in alumnae connections that this new program will bring.
Pin Created in Memory of Beloved Sister In memory of a dear and loyal sister, Ann Freeman Emrich (Beta GammaColorado), Denver alumnae Jean Creamer Hodges (Rho-Ohio State) and Deirdre Bainbridge Nalven (Iota-Wisconsin) designed and gifted a beautiful alumnae president’s lazy Phi traveling pin to be worn by presidents of the Denver alumnae chapter during their terms in office. Ann was a long-time member of the Denver alumnae chapter, holding nearly every office. She received Alpha Phi International’s Michaelanean Award in 1986 for her outstanding loyalty and continuous devotion to Alpha Phi at the local level. Ann was a reporter and columnist for the Denver Post and later the Washington Park Profile (Denver, Colo.). She served as the alumnae editor of the Alpha Phi Quarterly from 1964-92. The pin was presented by Deirdre and Jean to the current and continuing president, Heather Smart Brevik (Zeta Mu-Colorado State). This pin will be a treasure for all who are elected to wear it and a lovely remembrance of a truly remarkable sister.

Celebrating 70 Years at Bowling Green State (Beta Omicron)
Charter Member Ruthanna Fridley Allion won a quilt that was raffled. She is pictured with Kathryn Cook Crider.
The 70th anniversary of Bowling Green State (Beta Omicron) was celebrated in April. More than 300 sisters, including members from every decade, gathered to say goodbye to the chapter house they have all called home. A new house will be built as part of a university decision to tear down all existing fraternity and sorority houses on campus to create a Greek Village. The celebration featured a brunch that kicked off the beginning of a fundraising campaign for the new house and collected close to $2,300. The house corporation board presented Charter Member Ruthanna Fridley Allion with her 65-year pin. Sally Cook Conley Wannamaker, Karen Warden Suchy, Sue Delap Whitmer and Kathie Ledger Rasbach received 50-year pins. Attendees also enjoyed Founders’ Day and Loving Cup ceremonies.
One alumna said it best when she wrote, “It has been over 30 years since I’ve seen many of these ladies, but once we saw one another, it felt like only 30 minutes.” Visit Beta Omicron’s Facebook page for updates on the new house.
Alumnae pose in front of the chapter house as a final farewell.

Forever Home in Alpha Phi Housing Highlights
Alpha Phi International Hosts Housing Academy On June 14, 2013, more than 20 house corporation board (HCB) and chapter property committee (CPC) members representing 17 collegiate chapters traveled to Evanston, Ill., for this year’s Housing Academy. The Northwestern (Beta) chapter and its HCB graciously hosted the attendees throughout the weekend. Housing Academy is designed to provide the training necessary for housing volunteers to manage HCBs and CPCs that are charged with providing safe, quality, competitive housing and meeting facilities for undergraduate chapter members. Educational sessions covered a wide variety of topics, including current trends in interior design, emergency
planning, Americans with Disabilities Act compliance, board governance and a broad spectrum of important legal topics. All attendees were also treated to a sneak peek into the latest updates, developments and resources that will be coming down the pipeline from Alpha Phi’s Executive Office. While the weekend was packed with educational programming, attendees’ favorite aspect of the weekend was the opportunity to learn from each other and share stories and experiences. Participants
Introducing the National Housing Corporation
left the academy energized and excited about their leadership roles and armed with more knowledge to take back to the other members of their housing teams. HCBs and CPCs should earmark funds now to plan on attending this valuable training opportunity next year. Alpha Phi International is always seeking housing volunteers to join these teams regardless of experience level. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in learning more.
The National Housing Corporation (NHC) is an organization that aims to assist Alpha Phi house corporation boards (HCB) in providing safe, wellmanaged and appealing facilities for collegiate members. The NHC accomplishes this goal through the purchase and ownership of chapter facilities as well as through provision of business management services to local HCBs. The NHC has contracted with nationally-recognized companies to develop and manage cost effective services to help ease the workload of HCB members. These providers were selected based on their professional expertise and experience working with nonprofit organizations and Greek organizations. Insuring the safety of collegians is a top responsibility – if not the most important responsibility – of house corporation boards. It takes a considerable financial investment to meet local fire safety codes and keep safety systems and equipment in working order. By pairing with multiple financial and insurance companies, the NHC assists HCBs in providing facilities with a high level of safety while also saving HCBs time and money.
NHC Members Wendy Deems Sugg (Beta Delta-UCLA), president Jane Kirby Arkes (Omicron-Missouri), secretary Lisa Ripley (Delta Rho-Ball State), treasurer Christina Boyle (Zeta Phi-MIT) Coree Smith (Epsilon ThetaNorthern Iowa), International Executive Board representative Linda Wells Kahangi (Zeta Delta-Iowa State), Fraternity executive director

Some university properties have already been purchased by the NHC, including recent acquisitions at Northern Colorado (Delta Gamma) and Utah (Beta Sigma). Visit the corporation’s newly launched website at alphaphi.org (keyword: nhc) for additional details about the corporation, photos and information about NHC properties, services the NHC provides and a listing of the specific companies with whom the NHC works.

“Throughout my time as a collegiate member, Alpha Phi has not only helped me to forge bonds that will last a lifetime, but it has given me the strength and courage to face life’s many challenges head on and emerge a victor. It often becomes easy to forget about the many other chapters and sisters our Fraternity encompasses, but through programs such as these, bonds are formed between sisters who may never get to meet in person.” —M aria Fernanda Silva (Iota Beta-St. Mary’s)
Scholarship Applications The scholarship application for 2014-15 will be online this fall. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2014. Visit alphaphifoundation.org to learn more.

Our Founders were among the first women admitted to Syracuse University; and while their circumstances were lonely and uncertain at times, they were brave and mature beyond their years, determined to make a place for themselves and for other women in the world. They knew their success would depend on their ability to find support, and it was this longing for sisterhood that inspired the formation of Alpha Phi Fraternity. The publication of Alpha Phi International Fraternity: The First Fifty Years (1872-1922), Union Hand in Hand begins a three-volume series documenting Alpha Phi’s rich 150year history, the final nine years of which have yet to take place. The purpose of this project is to capture the extraordinary determination of generations of women who believed in higher education, the value of equality, and the prerogative to manage their own lives. Volume one introduces 40

readers to stories that are both familiar and new. It follows the surge in membership in the midst of war and resistance to coeducation, and celebrates the Fraternity’s many “firsts.” It’s sure to inspire us all to continue the legacy of the women who created a sisterhood that has spanned generations and is well poised for the future. This first volume has been four years in the making. We give special thanks to Alpha Phi Foundation’s archivist, Jenny Thompson (Alpha Lambda-Alumna Initiate), who spent tireless hours researching, writing, editing, gathering photos and guiding the production of this book. Jenny’s expertise, her writing style and her genuine interest in women’s history made the stories of Alpha Phi’s first 50 years come to life like a modern novel. Her work was supported by the women who serve with her on the Foundation Heritage Committee: Terri Ostlund Brooks (Gamma Tau-Williamette), Ann Brinkman Carstensen (Zeta DeltaIowa State), Kathleen Feeney Hiemstra (Delta Theta-Western Michigan), Margaret Knights Hultsch (Beta-Northwestern), Valerie Lawlor (Omicron-Missouri),
Linda Morford Neugebauer (Delta PhiIndiana U. of Pennsylvania), Phyllis Sims Selig (Gamma Delta-Kansas), Meagan Spellman and Darcel Atwill Weller (Gamma Iota-Texas Tech). Their collective and vast knowledge of the Fraternity was instrumental in ensuring the authenticity of the stories shared. We extend another special thanks to Kathleen Feeney Hiemstra (Delta Theta-Western Michigan) whose lead gift inspired others to invest in this project. Kathy’s generosity and belief that our history is one of our greatest assets made this project possible. Final thanks goes to the following women who made important contributions to this book: Laura Jen Kin Berger (Gamma Kappa-CSU/Long Beach), Nancy Owen Craig (Beta Chi-Bucknell), Emily Ellison Lamb (Gamma Iota-Texas Tech), Linda Gardner Massie (Delta AlphaEastern Carolina) and Christine Spiegel.

The Alpha Phi Foundation mission – advancing women’s lives through the power of philanthropy – is simple in phrase but momentous in meaning, as evidenced by the statistics below. These numbers represent
lives transformed, skills strengthened, and investments made in three of the biggest issues facing our society today – increased educational costs, few women in leadership roles, and heart disease.
Because you believe in advancing women’s lives, this past year we were able to help more Alpha Phi women become better students, better sisters, and better citizens.
Your gifts made it all possible.
Power of 1000 … Our Million Dollar Mission Over 100 alumnae stepped up to join our million dollar mission this past year. Alpha Phi Foundation’s Power of 1000 giving circle recognizes donors who contribute $1,000 or more in a fiscal year. To view a list of Power of 1000 donors, visit alphaphifoundation.org. Each Power of 1000 donor receives a beautiful custom scarf designed by New York fashion designer Marisol Deluna (Alpha Lambda-Alumna Initiate). It is a token of our appreciation, and an outward symbol of their commitment to empower the next generation of women to be philanthropic leaders. Step up and become a Power of 1000 woman today!

Thank you for advancing women’s lives through the power of your philanthropy.

As an alumna, Jenn has served as a chapter leadership development facilitator and a silver circle facilitator at ELI. Kelly also joined Alpha Phi Foundation as a Gold Society development officer in October 2012. She travels to the Northeast and Southwest U.S. and Canadian provinces. Kelly was initiated at James Madison (Iota Theta) and transferred to New Hampshire (Eta Alpha) during her sophomore year. As a collegian, Kelly was chapter president, vice president of program development and director of scholarship for New Hampshire (Eta Alpha). Kelly has served the Fraternity as a silver circle facilitator at ELI and as a Bystander Behavior Prevention facilitator. “I have been given many opportunities as a collegian, volunteer and staff member to see first hand that Alpha Phi is a network of accomplished women,” says Kelly. “The Gold Society is a way in which to connect these women, while sharing the growth and continued success of our organization. It enables alumnae to feel more connected through supporting the Foundation and its mission.” The Gold Society gives alumnae a way to connect no matter where they are now or plan to be in the future. With Gold Society donors in nearly every state and in many Canadian provinces, it provides young alumnae with a vast network that goes beyond their location. Gold Society donors are also provided with purposeful ways to tap into that network through the Gold Society Facebook page, LinkedIn group, e-newsletters and receptions. Stay Involved.

Collegiate Chapters Take Center Stage! We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our new blog. Designed specifically to highlight our collegiate chapters for their many philanthropic successes, the Foundation’s blog is full of spotlights on specific chapter events, awards and honors recognition. Last year the women in our collegiate chapters raised over $1.7 million to support our shared mission of advancing women’s lives through the power of philanthropy. Focus on Philanthropy celebrates these philanthropic achievements and the chapters behind them. It also provides a place for collegiate chapters to share and learn from one another. Each month we’ll be featuring a different chapter in our Chapter Spotlight. Visit today and see which of our chapters is taking center stage: alphaphiphilanthropy.tumblr.com.
