Biographical/Historical Note

Only one chapter survived the Civil War, but the fraternity was soon reestablished at the University of Georgia and at the University of Virginia and grew rapidly. Today, the organization boasts 8,200 undergraduate members in 225 chapters in 47 U. S. States and Canada.
