Phi Gamma Delta In World War II

Five hundred and six members of Phi Gamma Delta gave their lives in the service of their countries in World War II. Of these, 317 were killed in action, died of wounds or lost their lives as prisoners. The remaining 190 were killed in non-battle accidents or died of natural causes while in the service.

Of the "Gold Star" Fijis, 359 were in the United States Army, 98 in the United States Navy, 27 in the United States Marine Corps, 17 in the Canadian or British services, and 1 in the German military. [Note: we know of only one other Phi Gam who served for Germany, a naval lieutenant initiated at Minnesota after the war. Another post-war exchange student, Erik Sem Foss-Pedersen (Tennessee 1951), was a member of the Danish resistance. Alf Bjercke (MIT 1943) pledged in 1939; before initiation he departed to serve in the Royal Norwegian Air Force fighting with the Allies. He was initiated in 1989 at his chapter's centennial celebration.]

The Washington Chapter had the largest fatality roster in the Fraternity - 14. Next was Pennsylvania with 13. Colgate, Dartmouth, Missouri and Yale had 12 each; Davidson, Knox, Michigan, Oklahoma and Oregon had 11 each; Denison, Syracuse and Texas had 10 each.

The Washington Chapter and UCLA chapters led in the number of brothers killed in action - 9. Chapters with 8 combat fatalities were Maine and Oregon. 7 men from each of the following chapters were killed in action: Colgate, Davidson, Denison, Michigan, Rutgers and Tennessee.

There are 512 names in the following gold star roster, which includes deaths from September 3, 1939, to December 31, 1946. Deductions for dual chapter memberships reduced the total to 506.

This list was originally compiled by Cecil J. Wilkinson (Ohio Wesleyan 1917) and published in the "Fiji Thesaurus" edition of the Phi Gamma Delta magazine, October 1947. Subsequent additions have been made since that time.
