Biographical Note

The Houston Assembly of Delphian Chapters is an organization for women, which has three-fold purpose. It is dedicated to intellectual enrichment, social enhancement, and philanthropic endeavors. Founded in Houston in 1924, it is one of the oldest clubs for women in the greater metropolitan area. The organization has continued uninterrupted through wars, recessions, and most importantly, the changing role of women in society.

The organization is known for hosting a wide range of social functions, including an annual gala, luncheons, style shows, cultural events, and tours. The proceeds fund scholarships to area undergraduate students at the University of Houston. In addition, Delphian chapters meet in small discussion groups guided by seminar material focused on specific topics. Such a meeting structure illustrates the importance placed on enriching intellect by the Houston Assembly of Delphian Chapters.
