Convention 1921: Lake Crescent, Washington

Hosted by Lambda Chapter (University of Washington) and Seattle Alumnae Chapter August 28-September 1, 1921, the 33rd Convention was appropriately held on the shores of Lake Crescent near Port Angeles, Washington. Guests enjoyed gathering at the Singer’s Lake Crescent Tavern, today known as Lake Crescent Lodge.

Lindsey Barbee (Denver, 1897) was re-elected Grand President while continuing her role as editor of The Crescent, and if that wasn’t enough, she announced that she had completed the Sorority’s first history book, The Story of Gamma Phi Beta, and that it was now ready for distribution. The major topic of discussion at this Convention was the Sorority’s philanthropy and though the idea of creating a “vacation home for poor children” got a favorable response, no action was taken.
