Name of creator
Founded in 1931, Beta Sigma Phi is an international women's organization that focuses on stimulating personal growth and development of its members through cultural and social programs and through service to others. Members volunteer for such activities as blood donor clinics, daffodil day, and meals on wheels. The organization supports various charities. Beta Sigma Phi was established in Peterborough in 1944. The Xi-Iota Chapter folded in 1998 or 1999.
Fonds was in the custody of Marjorie Clements, past president of the area council of the Beta Sigma Phi, before being donated to Trent University Archives in 2010.
