    Historical note

    The Chi Alpha Delta Sorority is the first Asian American sorority in the United States. Chi Alpha Delta was organized in May 1928 by fourteen charter members, under the guidance of Helen Matthewson Laughlin, Dean of Women (1919-1946). The sorority's founding mission was to promote friendships, cooperation, and social activities among Japanese women students at UCLA. Chi Alpha Delta was officially recognized by UCLA on April 5, 1929 and was granted full university privileges in 1962. The sorority is now open to all women students.
    The fourteen charter members were: Lillian Shizu Ando, Rosa Fumiko Ando, Alyce Aiko Asahi, Chieko Goh, Fumi Iwasaki, Yone Kawatsu, Haruyo Komai, Tomiko Kusayanagi, Shizue Morey, Pauline Yuki Masuda, Mary Aiko Mizue, Haruko Ruth Saito, Kiyoko Helen Tomio, Yone Georgene Tomio.
    Chi Alpha Delta was inactive from 1942 to 1945 due to the internment of Americans of Japanese descent during World War II.
    From 1976-1977 onwards, each Chi Alpha Delta pledge class was given an animal name by the preceding year. The pledge class names are listed in full on the Chi Alpha Delta website: www.chialphadelta.com
