Beta Sigma Phi International (ΒΣΦ) is a non-academic sorority with 200,000 members in chapters around the world. Founded in Abilene, Kansas, in 1931 by Walter W. Ross "for the social, cultural, and civic enrichment of its members", the organization is now present throughout the United States and Canada, and in 30 other countries.
The organization started out under the name: "The National 'What to Read' Club". Walter Ross, the founder of Beta Sigma Phi, visited Vinita, Oklahoma, where librarian Leona Schroers agreed to help establish a chapter in the town, and introduced Ross to Sally Rogers McSpadden, sister of the humorist Will Rogers. McSpadden was active in the Oklahoma Federation of Women's Clubs, as well as other women's organizations, and advised Ross to change the organisation from an association to its present form, along with changing the name. A new framework for the organization was developed, with the Greek letter name derived from the sorority's motto: the letters, "Beta", "Sigma", and "Phi" were the first letters of the Greek words for "life, learning, and friendship".
