We hope these two photos of Lambda Chi House Parties in Spring 1953 will evoke memories from our senior alumni members. We do not know the identities of anyone in the 50+ year old photos. The photos were sent to us by Daniel Patton of Dallas, TX ('79 - Indiana Univ. of PA). His mother, Mary Jane (Zehner) Patton is shown in each photo with the same brother, but we don't know the identity of the brother. Mary Jane lived on Main Street in Bethlehem, was a 1948 graduate of Bethlehem High School and we believe was a Phi Mu from Moravian College. After college, she married and moved to West Chester, PA where she lived the rest of her life, passing away in 1991.


Her son Dan wrote, "Friends tell me I am crazy to give away these photos, but I don't agree. My mother, who graduated from Moravian in 1952, is in each of the photos and although I cherish all photos of her, I truly feel these will be much more appreciated at Lambda Chi than packed away in a box in my home. Maybe these pictures are a dime a dozen, but I hope they can be enjoyed by the people who are in them."

Dan, from all of us at Lambda Chi, we thank you for taking the time to find us and return the photos for our archives. They will most certainly elicit very fond memories of years gone by. Dan also sent additional photos from 1952. We will be posting all the pictures on our website at www.lxalehigh.com.

If you can identify any of the brothers or guests in these pictures, please contact Walt Keiper, '85 at wkeiper@fest.org.
