The Delta Delta Delta national sorority was founded in 1818 at Boston University. The founders include Sarah Ida Shaw, Eleanor Dorcas Pond, Isabel Morgan Breed, and Florence Isabelle Stewart. In 1913, Delta Delta Delta came to the University of Arkansas, making it the fourth sorority on campus. The Delta Iota Chapter had nineteen members when it began. By 1932, the Delta Delta Delta house was completed on Maple Street, and the Delta Iota Chapter had forty members. Prominent chapter alumnae have included Louis 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. In 2017, the Delta Iota Chapter started renovating their 85 year old house. The $14 million project was finished in the fall of 2018, making it the largest sorority house on the University of Arkansas campus.
