This is a 1908 telegram from Maud Powell (Alpha, DePauw University) from Tacoma, Washington. She was responding to an invitation to convention but was touring at the time in the U.S., Canada and Europe. In a 1909 Lyre article she wrote, “We must give our fraternity a reason for existing – and that reason must be one that is worthwhile for now and for the future.”
This overnight telegram was sent from Founder Oliver Burnett Clark expressing her well wishes since she was not able to attend the 1955 National Convention in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
Gladys Wilson Hayden (Alpha Gamma, The University of New Mexico) expresses thanks that her group at the University of New Mexico has been accepted to affiliate with Alpha Chi Omega.
