Chapter History

The University of Nebraska was created in 1869, and is the largest and oldest public university in the state. It was the first university west of the Mississippi River to establish a graduate school.

A group of fifteen students organized in February 1913 to seek a charter in Alpha Sigma Phi. The Chapter was installed at Madison, Wisconsin, on April 9, 1913. In its first quarter century, Xi Chapter utilized 12 chapter houses moving in 1914, 1915, 1918, 1921 (to 500 N. Sixteenth Street), 1926, 1927, 1930, 1932, 1934 and 1937.

In 1937, they moved to a house owned by the alumni corporation at 544 S. Seventeenth Street. After World War II, the Chapter was located at 545 N. Sixteenth Street. No initiations were reported after 1949 and the Chapter became inactive in 1954. The Chapter roster contains 359 names.

Charles A. Mitchell, Nebraska '21, served as the second Executive Secretary of Alpha Sigma Phi. Frederick Babcock, Nebraska 1913, served on the Grand Council.
