Installation of Iowa Alpha

In the fall of 1868, a little more than a year after I.C. Sorosis was formed at Monmouth College, Founder Libbie Brook (Gaddis) enrolled at Iowa Wesleyan College. She installed the Iowa Alpha Chapter on December 21, 1868 as Gamma of I.C. Sorosis. It’s believed the installation activities took place at the home of Elijah Spry, at 206 North Jefferson.

The chapter’s charter was relinquished in 2004.
