Alpha Theta is a literary society amoung
young ladies of the High school. Only those who have completed the
first years work are eligible. The society was organized in the fall of
1900 for the purpose of promoting the social interests of the school and
to help its members along literary lines. One of the greatest benefits
is that most essential requirements, self-possession when one is called
upon to speak in public. The programs consist of debates, plays, recitations,
essays, charades, music, etc….The officers are Frances Ash, president;
Lena Patchen, vice president; Blanche Sweet, secretary, Nora Regan, treasurer.

Many thanks to Berit Taggart for contributing this information. Berit is researching the following names and would love to hear from anyone on them...Becker and Collison. "Both families resided in Oswego county (Schroeppel Census 1860, 1865,1880 ) from the mid-1800's through early 1900's. Information has been slim so far, but I am undaunted!"
