At International Headquarters, many historical artifacts speak proudly of our past. Beginning with priceless items that date back to our founding in 1874, our museum gallery showcases pieces from many decades, all donated by our members or their families.
When in the area, our staff welcomes your visit! Tours of our museum are always free and open for all to enjoy (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
Here are a few of the special relics:
A guest book from Omicron Chapter (Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) signed by President Woodrow Wilson, whose two daughters were members.
Memorabilia from member, astronaut Laurel Salton Clark, M.D., (Wisconsin-Madison) who died in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster.
1919 dance card from Rho Chapter (Iowa).
Victorian bud vase engraved Clara with the date December 25, 1874. A piece of paper tucked inside identifies it as a gift from our Four Founders to Gamma Phi Beta's first initiate, Clara Worden (Syracuse).
