Lambda Sigma Pi: For the Science-Minded


Lambda Sigma Pi, a "honorary science fraternity" was a recent extra-ciricular activity for female students at Dickinson College in 1941, as they began admiting female members the year before. The fraternity focused on raising student interest in the sciences by sharing their own scientific work and discussing current scientific events at their bi-monthly meetings.  In 1941, Lambda Sigma Pi could boast of three female members: Ruth Leavitt, Jane Raring, and Janet Thornley out of the twelve-person fraternity.
