Kappa Delta Pi

Member of this honor society stopped by, inquiring about their original charter. I didn't have that, but was able to find some history of the society, especially in the 1949 Saga & Stylus. Apparently an honor society was formed in 1949 with the intent of becoming a KDP chapter, and they succeeded, getting their charter in 1949.
