Chapter History

Washington University was chartered in 1857 and moved to its present campus in 1905. Louis R. Goluck, IIT '46, transferred to Washington University in 1948, and organized the Chapter. 

The group was organized in the spring of 1950 and membership was eight men at the end of the school year. Development accelerated in the fall of 1950, and the Gamma Eta Chapter was chartered on June 2, 1951. Past Grand Senior President Wilbur H. Cramblet, Yale 1912, was the Principal Speaker at the Installation Ceremony; Grand Senior President Lloyd Cochran, Penn '20, presented the charter. 

An apartment adjacent to campus was used as a meeting facility. The chapter initiated 73 members before closing. The chapter newsletter was "Gamma Leta."
