               Facts Continued
• Beta Chapter: Yale dropped out, given to UMB, but
  petition made by University College of Medicine in
  Virginia. The apparent misordering of the Greek alphabet
  for the early chapters according to their date of
  installation is explained as follows: The first letter of the
  Greek alphabet, Alpha, was assigned to the alumni of
  the prep school chapters, Russell, Cheshire, and
  Hillhouse. The second letter of the Greek alphabet, Beta,
  was originally designated for the chapter at Yale
  University which never materialized because Preston W.
  Eldridge went to the business world. It was later
  reassigned to the chapter at the University College of
  Medicine in Richmond.
