    My grandmother attended Geneseo Normal school in Geneseo, NY in the 1920's. She was an English teacher. We have tried to find information on what sorority or social group this was. The Greek letters are Lambda, Chi, Chi. Any information would be greatly appreciated. My 90 year old father is very interested to learn what this may be. Thank you!

    My mother was a teacher & belonged to a sorority for teachers, Alpha Delta Kappa, as well as being an alumna of her college sorority. Nothing is coming up for this, so may have been limited in spread & disbanded long ago. The search continues. :)

    Interesting that it's a lapel pin and not the form most often seen for women's organizations. I would look to coed/professional/scholastic groups and not exclusively social sororities.

    Have you been in touch with the school? It still exists. (I realize the pandemic may have sent the school's historians/archivists/etc home for awhile, but they might be available for email.)

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    It is now SUNY Geneseo, I think...

    Your best resource would be the school's special collection/reference librarian. She would have access to vintage records (year books, student newspaper, etc.) many of which may well be digitalized.
