A friend who attended the AAUW convention sent me a note about Julia T. Brown, the newly-installed Chairman of the AAUW Board (no longer President). Brown in a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
I also realize that I never acknowledged the installation of Kay Ivey as Governor of the Alabama on April 10, 2017. She is a member of Alpha Gamma Delta and an Auburn University alumna.
Congratulations to Sigma Nu Charlie Trantanella. He just published BROWN and BLUE and Greek: A history of fraternities, sororities and early student organizations at Tufts University. The book was a labor of love for him. He did extensive research and documentation and he left no stone unturned. It is dissertation worthy. An excerpt from his research appeared on this blog several years ago (http://wp.me/p20I1i-Dn). If you’d like info about purchasing a copy, use the contact form below and I will forward the inquiries on.
Over the weekend several additional sorority women won state contests and will be competing in Miss America 2018. See the list, which will be updated as additional contests are decided. See http://wp.me/P20I1i-3ER.
