Iowa State Chapter of Triangle Fraternity
Photo Albums Scanned and Uploaded E-mail

Hey Brothers...

I decided the old scrapbooks that used to live in the living room at 125 N Hyland needed to be saved. I picked up what was saved from the house before it was torn down. This represents well over 200 hours of my time scanning, copying, tweaking and organizing those photos.

Here are 1256 photos, sorted by year (more or less). The "post 1980" has demolition photos in case you haven't seen. This only covers 1964 to 1985 or thereabouts. I have heard someone in Minneapolis has the later years.

I hope you enjoy reliving those days as I did. What really struck me is, I joined the house in 1975 and the house was barely 11 years in existence. And it lasted almost 49 years as a Triangle house (it was Sigma Chi before we bought it). I never through of myself as one of the "early guys."

Lots of photos have been pilfered over the years (or possibly confiscated by the law enforcement for evidence). I scanned what I had.

You can see the scanned pictures in the Gallery section of this website.

Watch the newsstands for the BFG Songbook to come next!

The Iowa State Chapter of Triangle Fraternity held its homecoming meeting on October 27, 2012 at 1:00 pm in the Iowa State University Alumni Center in Ames, Iowa.

  1. Attendees introduced themselves with name, current residence and year of initiation

  2. A current status of the chapter was provided by Jason Carroll, Alumni Board President:

    After discussions at VEISHEA, and a unanimous recommendation from those in attendance, the properties were put up for sale and closed on 8/31/2012 for $406,250.  The new owner worked quickly to take down the house and it is our understanding plans have been submitted to the city for re-development.

    Chapter possessions have been moved to a climate-controlled storage garage in Ames.  This includes all of the Ritual materials, composites, trophies, pictures, and a few pledge projects. 

    The Beta Sig House was sold to the owner of the property next door without our knowledge before we could finalize the financing.  We have reached out to the all the other Chapters and continue dialogue with our real estate agent.  It is expected that another property will be available within 12-18 months, but it is very uncertain.  Sigma Nu is also re-colonizing and will be ahead of us in terms of those efforts, but we feel like we are positioned well to purchase a new property.
