Historical NoteReturn to Top

Lambda Rho, Women's Arts Honorary, UW Chapter, was an honorary society of University of Washington School of Art alumni founded in 1917. Its natural outgrowth, Lambda Rho Alumnae, was begun in 1923 to support the activities of the student group as well as to bring the arts to the Seattle community. In particular, its purposes were to further the educational and cultural values of the arts, to sponsor scholarships for art students, to sponsor art exhibits, and to promote the advancement and appreciation of the arts.

In 1963, Lambda Rho Alamnae began the process to be a tax exempt women's organization and became Lambda Rho Alumni Association, Inc. in January 1965. The association was dissolved in 2006 and its financial holdings were used to establish the Lambda Rho Endowed Fellowship at the University of Washington.
