By 1932, when the Tri Delta house on Maple Street was completed, there were forty members. Prominent chapter alumnae have included Louise McPhetridge Thaden, aviatrix and winner of the Bendix Transcontinental Air Race 1936; Rosa Zagnoni Marinoni, poet laureate of Arkansas 1954; and Donna Axum, Miss America 1963.
