A Theta Delt legend -- Allen H. “Alio” Stowe ’60 -- entered the Omega Charge on August 5, 2013, in Vero Beach, Florida.
Al believed that one’s ties to Dartmouth and the Lodge are life-long. He often said: “Undergraduates are just alumni in training.” He was the great exemplar of his own objective, serving for decades as a director and president of the Omie Deut House Corporation. Largely through Al’s efforts – and those of his close friend and successor as president, Tom Brock ’60 -- Theta Delt thrived in the ‘80s and ‘90s, maintaining its place as a leading fraternity on the Dartmouth campus.
Al was the “social chairman for life” for the TDX Class of 1960 and surrounding classes. According to his obituary in The Valley News, he “was renowned for his unique ability to seamlessly intertwine disparate groups of people, whether they were from Bronxville, Ridgewood, Princeton, Hanover, Normandy or Vero Beach, into a cohesive band of revelers. His leadership in this area will be sorely missed.”
The story of Theta Delt at Dartmouth is one of undergraduate fellowship and alumni loyalty. The bonds of friendship forged as undergraduate brothers often last a lifetime. Alumni loyalty reaches back across the classes and generations to support the current brothers in the hallowed halls of the Lodge at 11 West Wheelock Street.
For the alumni of "Omie Deut", we hope that our site will renew your ties to your brothers and the undergraduate charge. We need your help to maintain the Lodge for the next generation of Dartmouth students! For the undergraduates, we hope that the site will teach you more about the history of the charge and lead you to become active alumni. We offer to you the words of Al Stowe, long-time president of the House Corporation and Social Chairman-for-Life of the legendary Theta Delt Class of 1960: "Undergraduates are just alumni in training."
