Gamma Phi Delta Sorority, Inc. was founded February, 1943, by the late Elizabeth Garner, 
teacher and the late Violet T. Lewis, owner of Lewis Business College, Detroit, Michigan. 
The founders, along with the other eleven members are known as the Sorority's 13 Original Pearls.
Each of the teachers pledged to organize a chapter of the Sorority in her home city. 

Elijah Cummings  

We have lost a true gentleman, a fierce defender of civil and human rights, and a public servant dedicated to defending our U.S. Constitution and our laws.  Gamma Phi Delta Sorority, Inc. will greatly miss Mr. Cummings.  He stood firmly for the hard right against the easy wrong.  We offer our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Mrs. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings and the Cummings family.
