Gamma Phi Beta was founded in Syracuse, New York on November 11, 1874 by Helen M. Dodge, Francis E. Haven, E. Adeline Curtis, and Mary A. Bingham. This organization was founded as a society for women at Syracuse University who were discouraged from entering college due to their “insufficient brainpower” and “delicate health”. The first meeting took place in Dr. J.J. Brown’s study. The organization has now spread internationally and contains over 190,000+ members. Since the organizations founding 140 years ago, the international headquarters is now located in Centennial, Colorado and there are more than 180 collegiate chapters.
