Scope and Contents note

The collection consists of just 14 black and white photographs of the Washington State University (then Washington State College) chapter of the Pi Beta Phi sorority, collected by Sue Glenn Richey during 1954-1958, while she was a member of that sorority. The photographs are split fairly evenly between professionally photographed group images, and more informal personal photos.
