The weekend of March 6 and 7 was a memorable one for all the Alpha Phis in the San Francisco Bay area of California. Thirty-one former Ero Sophian collegians and 35 of their alumnae were initiated into Alpha Phi. The initiation was held on Saturday afternoon at the Berkeley Women’s City Club, after the new members had been initiated at Lambda’s chapter house. Over two hundred Alpha Phis from at least 14 chapters gathered to meet old friends and greet the new at the banquet following the installation of the Beta Psi chapter.
The Ero Sophian group was one of the oldest local organizations in San Jose, founded in 1898, and the chapter at San Jose State was filled with many involved collegians.
