1919: An International Sorority
Gamma Phi Beta became an international sorority with the installation of their first Canadian chapter, Alpha Alpha, at the University of Toronto on October 30, 1919. The new chapter was originally a local society named Delta Phi founded in 1917. The petitioning members had an excellent scholarship and activity record and were readily welcomed. Eight members from Alpha Chapter (Syracuse) assisted in the Installation of Alpha Alpha Chapter (Toronto), Gamma Phi Beta’s first Canadian and 25th chapter.
