Beta Theta Pi at Saint Lawrence University, Canton, NY
Unknown, architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, 1902. 7.5 by 6 inches. VG+ condition with browning around the edges and light crinkling.
Photogravure. Today Beta Theta Pi maintains over 120 chapters on college campuses in the United States and Canada. Membership places us as one of the four largest fraternities nationwide. Today we are the oldest fraternity at the University of Maine, having been the second fraternity ever founded at UMaine and the first Greek letter fraternity ever founded at UMaine. We were the first fraternity to join up with a national fraternity during a time when fraternities did not set up chapters at colleges under land grants such as the University of Maine, much less newly established colleges. Our chapter led the way for all other fraternities at the University of Maine to go from being local fraternities to aligning themselves with strong national fraternities with chapters across the country. Below is the story of Greek Life at then Maine State College from Merritt Caldwell Fernald's 1916 book "History of the Maine State College and the University of Maine" and the story of Alpha Sigma Chi and how we came to be Beta.This picture is extremely hard to find. The Greek Letter Men had a very small circulation during this time and these original photogravures only appeared in a very limited number of issues. It measures 7.5 by 6 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 10 by 8.5 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
