Gamma Chi Throwback

On your next visit to Pullman, check out the original Gamma Chi Charter, which was granted on May 20, 1911 to a local group of men known as the Washington Sigma Club. Among all chapters of Alpha Tau Omega, this is an extremely rare document, as it bears the signature of the fraternity’s primary founder, Otis Allan Glazebrook. In 1865, he and two other cadets from VMI founded ATO five months after the end of the Civil War as a Christian organization committed to reuniting young men from the North and the South as brothers. He was 20 years old. In 1911 when he signed our Charter, Glazebrook was Chairman of the High Council, then Alpha Tau Omega’s governing body. Very few of these charters with his signature remain in existence today.
