Download PDF for this date

More than 1,200 members of Phi Sigma Delta will gather in twenty cities throughout the United States tomorrow night to observe the twenty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the fraternity, which occurred at Columbia University here.

Elaborate events have been scheduled for New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland and Denver. Undergraduate and alumni chapters will participate, in many places in jointly sponsored affairs.

Phi Sigma Delta was brought into existence November 10, 1909, by Dr. Alfred Iason, William L. Berk, Herbert K. Minsky, Maxwell Hyman, Herbert Eisenberg, Joseph Levy, Joseph Shalleck and Robert Shapiro.

The New York Alumni Club, with the aid of the New York University and Columbia chapters, will celebrate with an anniversary banquet and dance at the Hotel Lismore. David Berend’s orchestra will play and Edward R. Murrow of the Institute of International Education will deliver an address.
