CDUA Established 1882

For several decades after its founding the Cornell chapter met at various locations in Ithaca, including the Ithaca Hotel and a rooming house on Eustus Street (College Avenue).  With the eventual goal being the constructon of a chapter house, alumni leaders in 1882 began discussing the creation of an alumni association.

On June 14, 1882, the Cornell Delta Upsilon Association was born.  Present were John H. Comstock '74 (of Comstock Hall) and two future presidents of Stanford University: David Starr Jordan '72, Stanford's first, and John C. Branner '74, its second.
