On Sunday, November 12, 1922, seven school teachers--Mary Lou Allison Gardner Little, Dorothy Hanley Whiteside, Vivian White Marbury, Nannie Mae Gahn Johnson, Hattie Mae Annette Dulin Redford, Bessie Mae Downey Martin, and Cubena McClure--gathered to create our illustrious sorority, Sigma Gamma Rho, in Indianapolis, Indiana. These founders believed the hope to a better society relied upon the education and success of its youth as well as service within the community. On December 30, 1929, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority became an incorporated national college sorority with the charter being granted to the Alpha Chapter at Butler University. It is the only sorority of the National Pan Hellenic Council to be founded on a predominately White campus.
