Sigma Alpha Mu

A chapter of the Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity was founded at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania in 1919, though the official chapter designation is unknown.

The founders of Sigma Alpha Mu, who were students at the City College of New York, were of the Jewish faith and espoused a strong Zionist perspective, although the constitution of the brotherhood was later amended to allow any student of "good moral character.”

The chapter at Dickinson remained in existence until 1921.
