#psptbt: Brothers Are We

#psptbt is a blog series on the National blog. Every third Thursday of the month, we’ll dig into the archives from the last 99 years and share a piece of Phi Sigma Pi history.

You know it. You love it. And if you’ve ever been to National Convention, you’ve sang it in a circle with all of your fellow Members. It’s Brothers Are We. We’ve been digitally archiving our past magazines and we found some really cool references to the history of song that we had to share.

Below is the announcement of the new song in the April 1933 Lampadion. That’s Charles Darrin, the composer and Theta 42. Regional Conferences have always been a great place for sharing ideas, and that year’s Eastern Regional Conference was the site of the first introduction of the song.

Some Chapters used to create their own publications. The Theta Chapter published the following account of how Brothers Are We came about in the 1936 edition of Theta Times.

Now go practice! We’ll see you in Washington D.C. and we’ll be ready to sing.
