It was in the spring of 1911 that two freshmen at Albion College, Byron
D. Stokes and F. Dudleigh Vernor, wrote the words and music for a song
they called "The Sweetheart of Sigma Chi."
The song made a hit with their fraternity brothers, and requests of
copies came in from other chapters.
Within a few years the melody and lyrics of "The Sweetheart of Sigma
Chi" had become familiar to pepople around the world.
