DELTA GAMMA FUN FAQ
DID YOU KNOW......
Soon after the first initiation on January 2, 1874, plans were made for the first pin. A few years before she died, Mary Comfort Leonard described the first pin: "We went to a local jeweler and had our pin made-the letter "H" which stood for hope, for which we hoped for great results and have not been disappointed."
It was't until 1877 the letter H was replaced by anchor, which is the symbol for hope.
