1972: The 55th Convention – Future Soundings  

The 55th International Convention held at the Radisson South Hotel in Minneapolis during June 1972 had a nautical theme, “Future Soundings,” and among other business, created a plan to aid the formation of new alumnae chapters. With fewer responsibilities than alumnae chapters, the new Crescent Circles could now be formed in areas where fewer alumnae resided.

Grand Council meeting led by Grand President Audrey Schafer (Missouri-Columbia, 1938), 1971.
