Gamma Phi Delta Sorority, Inc. was founded in 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.
The Alpha Gamma Chapter (Atlanta, GA) of Gamma Phi Delta Sorority, Inc. was chartered on April 14, 2007 in Atlanta, Georgia. Thirteen women, including four reinstated sorors, were guided by the South Atlantic Region to establish the first graduate chapter in the State of Georgia. Alpha Gamma members serve as advisers to the Alpha Delta chapter at Clark Atlanta University, the Alpha Tau chapter at the University of Georgia, and the Gamma Sigma Upsilon chapter at Georgia State University.
