Women in the ΑΞΔ sorority initially lived at 40 W. College Ave, on the northeast corner of College and Woodlawn Avenues. Postcards from 1914 show Alpha Zs on the front porch. In 1919, Clara Hamma (widower Mrs. Michael W. Hamma), sold her house at 529 North Wittenberg Avenue to the Alumnae of ΑΞΔ for $1.00. Read the transcribed deed.

During our research into home owners, Caitlin Lobl (class of 2016), investigated the lives of a couple of Alpha Z women. Her profiles will appear below:

    Hello,

    My name is Rachel, my maternal grandmother, Mary Elizabeth VanMatre pledged Alpha Xi in approx. 1919 at Wittenburg University. I remember my mother telling me that her mom was the first Homecoming queen (although not called homecoming queeen at the time) at Wittenburg.

    Since my mom and her mom have since passed, I am asking for any information pertaining to my grandmother be sent to me.

    I thank you in advance.

      You can contact the Wittenberg University Archives and inquire as to whether they have any materials relating to your grandmother. Wittenberg does retain yearbooks from her time at Wittenberg and so you might be able to see what her life was like while at Wittenberg College during this period. Contact: ssmailes@wittenberg.edu
