Installation at New York Beta

On the afternoon of May 28, 1904, Barnard College became the home of the New York Beta chapter of Pi Beta Phi. The Initiation Ceremony took place in the morning room of the Breton Hall Hotel. The installation banquet was held in a private dining room of that same hotel. Due to anti-fraternity sentiment, the College suspended all fraternities in 1913. The chapter’s charter was relinquished in 1915 when its last members graduated.
