Name of creator
Chimes Junior Honorary Society chapter at Kansas State University began in 1952 as the society's fourteenth chapter. The local chapter of Chimes remained a female-only group until three men joined with 15 women in 1977's new class of initiates. The national organization has disbanded, but the remaining chapters have retained the name and symbol of Chimes Junior Honor Society.
