In 1978, the Executive Committee of the Sigma Chi Fraternity asked 62nd Grand Consul Douglas R. Carlson, also the fraternity’s 19th Grand Historian, to compile a history of the fraternity for the years 1955 to 1980. Following in the traditional of Joseph Cookman Nate’s seven-volume History of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, Carlson tells the story of Sigma Chi in chapters coinciding with the terms of office of the Fraternity’s Grand Consuls. In the course of the narrative, Carlson takes the reader through one of the most turbulent periods in the history of Fraternity. History of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, 1955 to 1980, shows how the fraternity dealt with issues of civil rights and the war in Vietnam while continuing to grow in an era when many felt that fraternities had become irrelevant. In addition to the Grand Consuls, the reader is also introduced to the wonderful young women who served the fraternity as “The Sweethearts of Sigma Chi,” and the many Sigma Chis who contributed so much of their time in service to the Fraternity.

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.
