Delta Zeta Founder - Alfa Lloyd Hayes, 1880-1962, served as the Sorority's first NPC representative and was Historian from 1912-1916. She presided at installations and initiations of early chapters and helped found the first alumnae chapter in Indianapolis. Her 1908 wedding to Orison Hayes took place in a Miami Univ. campus auditorium that was built by her father. Her attendants were Delta Zeta sisters attired in rose and green. Alfa Lloyd Hayes became part of the Flame Eternal in March…
Delta Zeta Founder - Alfa Lloyd Hayes, 1880-1962. Alfa Lloyd had already had a degree from the Oxford College for Women when she enrolled at Miami University in 1902, but her desire to be the best in her profession, teaching, led her to pursue a degree in pedagogy. A born leader, it was natural that she associated with women of similar ideals and goals. She was elected Delta Zeta's first President, serving from 1902 to 1912, and her birthday, October 24, was set as Founders Day.
Elizabeth “Bess” Coulter Stephenson, Miami University - Elizabeth “Bess” Coulter was the first woman to be pledged to Delta Zeta. Bess was approached by Founder Anne Simmons in the main hall of Miami University in 1903 and asked to become a member of the new Sorority, the first on Miami’s campus. As a collegian, she served on the Miami Student newspaper, played for the women’s basketball team and was active in the newly-formed Y.W.C.A.
Delta Zeta Founder - Julia Bishop Coleman, 1881-1959. Julia Bishop Coleman's contributions to Delta Zeta, from the earliest moments and continuing throughout her life, are unique among the Founders. She was the only one to marry a college sweetheart who witnessed the events leading to the Sorority's founding; she is the only one to have daughters who both became Convention initiates; and she was the only one to return to school in that critical year, 1903.
