Wheel and Chain is an all female senior honorary society. It is unique
to Dickinson College as is Raven's
Claw and Skull
and Key. It was founded at Dickinson College by Mae Mountz and others
in 1924 and is still in effect today. The 1934 group of seniors consisted
of eight girls. Those girls were R.
E. Betts, S.
E. Hess, E.
M. Dunkin, P.
Meredith, and E.
Billow. These girls belonged to several different sororities including
ZTA, Phi Mu, Chi O, and Pi Phi, and Betts was an independent. A truly diverse
group of women came together in this group. The group is limited to nine
members and wear "blue hats" to symbolize unity. In 1934 the group helped
to sponsor an orientation program for the freshmen women and presented
their annual award to an outstanding woman in the entering class.
