Pi Lam makes the front page in a story about alcohol policy.

September 15, 1982 - Pi Lam is prominently featured in a front page story in the Temple News about the announcement of a new alcohol policy. Best quote, "Because "Pi Lam" is not a university owned building, recent alochol policy changes do not apply and the partying can continue."

1959 Composite - This was one of several damaged composites that were restored in 2001. In the 1950s, apparently there were only three haircuts: the crew cut, the D.A., and the Wally Cleaver.

Pi Lambda Phi featured on front page of The Inquirer - August 24, 2007

Well, maybe not exactly featured, but you can clearly see "Pi Lambda Phi" on the front of the house, just behind the mother who is reconsidering ever letteing her daughter go to college...

June 2007 - Carriage House John Stafford Crest (circa 1991)

The intricately designed "JS" (John Stafford) crest is an indication of the affluence of this area of North Broad Street at the turn of the century. The crest adorned the western side of the carriage house until around 1993 when it was stolen by vandals. The carriage house was deemed structurally unsound and demolished in 1995 due to safety concerns.

April 2007 - Pi Lam Meal Plan?

Gathering for meals was a ritual in the 1960s and 1970s when the house had a meal plan. It was a great opportunity to share time with brothers. Many alumni fondly recall long-time house chef, Ed Little, who prepared and served meals from the kitchen at 2000 North Broad.
