From Iota Delta's Founding Through the article

The 1950's and 60's were times of unbounded enthusiasm at Iota Delta, interrupted by the "Great Fire of 1971" which destroyed the third floor rear roof. Our Chapter, caught up in a campus cultural revolution in the 1970's, nevertheless managed to survive and thrive during the 1980's, We experienced a "roller-coaster ride' of success in the 1990s, with extensive renovation of the house in 1993 and a second-place IU Sing finish in 1996. Strong Little 500 teams and "Keeping the Promise" construction campaign led Iota Delta's prospects into the early 2000's. . . .

Early Newsletters

Monty and DonWilliam S. Montgomery ID '64, i.e. Monty, was the publisher of Frangipana II newsletters for many years, as well as holding Chapter Council and Alumni Association positions, including being Treasurer. His publication succeeded the first Frangipana newsletters of the early 1960's. To save on our limited money, as we owed over $110,000 to the Chi Phi Educational Trust on the initial building loan, a few alumni spent long hours several timesa year manually affixing address labels to some 500 newsletters in zip code order to use a Bulk Mailing Permit. The newsletter title changed to Iota Delta Update in 1989.
