On November 11, 1874, Gamma Phi Beta was founded at Syracuse University by four courageous women who saw well beyond the limits of their time. Helen M. Dodge, Frances E. Haven, E. Adeline Curtis, and Mary A. Bingham worked tirelessly to establish a women's society which promoted literary culture and social improvement.

Gamma Phi Beta Delta Chapter at Boston University was founded in 1887. As the Delta Chapter, we are the fourth oldest chapter in the US.  In 2011, the Delta Chapter celebrated its 125th Anniversary at Boston University.
