Alpha Lambda Delta Honors Society

Alpha Lambda Delta was founded in 1924 by Maria Leonard, the Dean of Women at the University of Illinois, to recognize academic excellence among freshman women. One year prior, Dean Thomas Arkle Clark had founded Phi Eta Sigma, an honor society to recognize academic excellence among freshman men. Both groups operated as single sex organizations until the mid-1970s when they both became coeducational in response to Title IX.
