Founded at the University of Texas, Austin, in 1929, DKG spread to Alabama ("Beta State") in 1931. Led by Laureson Forrester of the Eta Chapter at Troy, AL, nine women educators of Houston County, AL, founded the Alpha Rho Chapter on February 18, 1950. The chapter does not appear among those listed on the Alabama DKG website, and lack of records after 1979 indicates the chapter is not longer active.
