Historical Note
"Founded at Yale University in 1895, Pi Lambda Phi was the first non-sectarian fraternity in the United States, accepting men of good character without regard to race or religion. Today, Pi Lambda Phi chapters at colleges and universities in the United States and in Canada cultivate communities that promote academics, leadership, social skills, and lifelong fraternal bonds. There are presently 37 chapters in the United State and one in Canada. One of the fraternities more illustrious brothers was physicist and Nobel Prize winner Richard Feynman, often called the Father of Quantum Mechanics."- Pi Lambda Psi website (http://pilambdaphi.org/) The Psi Chapter (also called Virginia Psi) at The College of William and Mary was installed in June 1929 and became inactive in 2002.
