Metagenes Chapter turned 41 years old this week, so here is a collection of correspondence from the founding days of the chapter – including letters from the sponsor chapters, Demetrios (Ohio State) and Vitruvius (Penn State).
The tradition of pledge book covers is as old as the Metagenes Chapter. Each class of prospective members has produced a cover or container design to protect their copies of The Archi Pledge. Although the designs have ranged in materials from chipboard to aluminum to plexiglass to cloth or in size from over a 12-in square to more recent compact designs, each has represented a generation of brothers of the fraternity.
Here’s a gallery of pledge book designs. If you don’t see yours, send us a photo!
Thanks to Kent McCullough for many of these scans.
