The Sweetheart
of Sigma Chi
Michigan Historical Marker 

Historical Marker 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.
