Simmons ’19 (the dining room is dedicated to him), Jack Powers ’17 (the whole new wing is named for Jack) and Stewart Daniels ’21 (long time ATO National Executive Secretary… our west living room is dedicated to him). The picture is labeled March 1966. Not sure to occasion but probably a Founders Day celebration since Gamma Zeta’s founding was in March.
