The Sigma Chi Fraternity is proud to present One in Heart and Purpose: The Founders and the Founding of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, which celebrates the 154th anniversary of the Fraternity. Compiled by Grand Historian Dr. William Fleming Jr., SAM HOUSTON 1965, and based on the writings of Ninth Grand Consul Dr. Joseph C. Nate, ILLINOIS WESLEYAN 1890, One in Heart and Purpose is the definitive work on the Founders and the founding of The Sigma Chi Fraternity.
Building on the work of Nate from his multi-volume History of the Sigma Chi Fraternity 1855-1925, the book describes the lives of the seven Founders and the events surrounding the founding of Sigma Chi from a variety of perspectives. One in Heart and Purpose includes additional works by: Frank Crozier, MICHIGAN 1894, the editor of The Sigma Chi Quarterly during the 1890s; past Grand Historians Robert Collett, DENISON 1914, and 62nd Grand Consul Douglas Carlson, MINNESOTA 1973; and Samuel F. Hunt, former editor of the ΔΚΕ Quarterly, who gives the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity version of the founding of Sigma Chi.
In tribute to the year of Sigma Chi's founding, 1,855 hard-bound copies of One in Heart and Purpose have been printed. In addition, the Fraternity has commissioned the publication of 154 leather-bound copies of the book, in commemoration of Sigma Chi's 154th anniversary.
This first offering of One in Heart and Purpose is a numbered edition and will be accompanied by a bookplate showing the production number. All proceeds will benefit the Sigma Chi Historical Initiative, the task force charged with preserving the priceless documents and artifacts that give us a physical connection to the Sigma Chi Fraternity's past.
With this book, Sigma Chi has presented you with a chance to not only support the Fraternity, but to own a lasting piece of its heritage. Whether it is a gift for yourself or a loved one, One in Heart and Purpose is the perfect complement to any Sigma Chi in whose heart the Fraternity holds a special place.
Remember, production time is not shipping time! With this selection, you are choosing the amount of time we are given to produce your item.
Once produced, we still need to ship the item to you and that takes time. If you are in a rush, we suggest you choose one of our rush production options and the appropriate shipping option at checkout.
Please note that we ship all orders complete, so do not order items from other sections of our website with your rush-produced item unless you can rush all items together!
As an example, if you choose a 24 hour rush item and an item that takes 3 weeks to produce, you are going to be unhappy when your rush item is delayed. In this instance, please make two orders if you need something faster with the benefit of our low standard shipping price.
Finally, a production day is an actual business day and not a weekend day
, and any order placed after 2 pm CST will count as the next business day. As an example, purchasing an item at 10am CST on Monday and selecting 24 hour rush production will ensure your item is produced and shipped from our headquarters on Tuesday. An item purchased after 2pm CST on Monday with 24 rush production selected would not be produced and shipped until Wednesday.
