History of the Amicae
As early as 1940, graduate chapters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc began to realize the importance of the prestige, good will and cooperation of women who, for various reasons, were not members of any Greek-letter organizations. Under the administration of the 12th National President Lullelia Harrison, the first Amicae chapter was organized in Omaha Nebraska in 1947 making Zeta the first sorority in the National Pan-Hellenic Council to organize an auxiliary group. Zeta Amicae are affiliated through local chapters.
