Greetings from the 3rd District History and Archives Committee:

The Committee hopes you enjoy reading the reflections of Mrs. Lenore Robbins Drew, wife of Brother Charles “Charlie” Drew.  Her perspective on her husband’s many accomplishments seemed more revealing about the person (and the Omega in him) than the professional record.  You have to read to the end, but it seems she believed her husband’s greatest accomplishment was not so much his blood plasma work as it was his values and principles, and the interest he took in others’ success. Omega caliber to be sure.

The Monday Pearl is provided by the Third District History and Archives Committee and is a weekly sharing of fraternity content, commentary, and research of historical value we hope Brothers will enjoy and from which Brothers will draw inspiration. The Committee encourages your feedback. Should you have reactions, comments, information, anecdotes, documents, and the like, related to any of the content we share, we’d very much like to hear from you. Please send all communication to
