Alpha Delta history

A query came in about this sorority, which was started here in March 1888, it still continues at Geneseo, and that is where the questioner is from. Sent some images, the following note:

"Hi Theresa, I have a fair bit of material for Alpha Delta here in the Rose Archives. It did start here, in March 1888, and later established chapters in other of the Normal schools, including Geneseo, where they still continue. Here at Brockport though all the old Normal school fraternities and sororities were closed out in 1938-39. They had had rooms in the old building, a new complex was built, and the then principal of the school didn’t include rooms for them, essentially shutting them down, so they all ended here in 1939. If you’d like to visit sometime and look at the materials I have that would be fine, let me know."
