History / Biographical
Frederick Thomas Robins was born in 1877 in Margate, Kent, England. He learned the printer's trade in England, and came to Canada in 1903 as a master printer. Mr. Robins assisted in printing the statutes that created the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta in 1905. In 1907, at the invitation of newspaper owner William Asbury Buchanan, Mr. Robins settled in Lethbridge and helped print the first edition of the Lethbridge Daily Herald. In 1909 Mr. Robins founded Lethbridge Quick Print. In 1916 he joined the 113th Lethbridge Highlanders, and served overseas until the end of World War 1. Upon his return to Lethbridge, Mr. Robins discovered that much of his printing equipment had been destroyed in a fire while in storage. Mr. Robins returned to work for the Lethbridge Daily Herald, but with the presses he was able to salvage from the fire, he established the F.T. Robins Printing Company between 1921 and 1924. The company was located at 713 3 Avenue South, but in 1931 moved to 714 2 Avenue North. The firm moved again in 1937, this time to 812 4 Avenue South. In 1954 Fred Robins moved his business one last time, to 1269 3 Avenue South. In 1957 Fred Robins, 80 years of age, retired from the business and his son Chester took control. Chester had started as an apprentice in the printer's trade in 1938. In 1976 Fred Robins died in Lethbridge at the age of 98. Chester Robins died in Lethbridge on 24 April 2004. The F.T. Robins Company was the first in the city to purchase a Litho press, an important change in the printing process. In 1970 the company purchased the first and only Webb Business Forms Press in the city. In October 1977 the firm merged with Southern Printing Limited. to become Robins Southern Printing Limited. Chester Robins remained with the company until 1980, when he retired.

History / Biographical
Beta Sigma Phi International "In 1931, during the Great Depression, there was a need for an organization that could bring women together and expose them to a social, cultural and educational climate that was not available in those difficult times. Most important, there was a need for friendship and support from other women. Beta Sigma Phi was created out of this need. It did not take long before Beta Sigma Phis were helping others. Members worked together to raise $22 million in war bonds during World War II. The 1950s brought peace and prosperity to the world, and Beta Sigma Phi membership doubled. This era was filled with grand balls, elegant teas and the growing strength of sisterhood as thousands of women joined Beta Sigma Phi. As the times have changed, so has Beta Sigma Phi. The 1960s and 1970s found our organization less formal, but the ideals were the same. Now in the 21st Century, our over 165,000 members find the more we grow, the more valuable we become to our sisters and to our communities. The Beta Sigma Phi woman will continue to face challenges and cherish opportunities as she moves into the future. Typical chapters enjoy socials that range from informal gatherings to gala affairs that often include friends and family. Fascinating cultural programs offer insight into subjects that range from the arts to gardening to in-home businesses. Membership in our organization provides opportunities to contribute to your community, develop lifelong friendships, and polish leadership skills. Our members raise more than $3 million for local charities and donate over 200,0000 volunteer hours in an average year. Each chapter determines its own service projects and participation is always voluntary. Chapters have created their own International Funds that donate millions of dollars to health research groups, hunger projects, and other worthwhile causes. Members and their families can receive assistance through our International Loan, Scholarship and Disaster Funds ... Unlike a college sorority, our organization has members of all ages and educational backgrounds. Our sisterhood constantly redefines itself through the diversity and vitality of its members who share their ideas, talents and enthusiasm."

Beta Sigma Phi in Lethbridge Beta Sigma Phi was founded in Lethbridge 19 July 1945 in a ceremony held at the Marquis Hotel. Mrs. Esther Lewis, a traveling representative of Beta Sigma Phi International with headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri, read the pledge ritual to 22 women who formed the Kappa Chapter. As reported on page eight in The Lethbridge Herald of 19 July 1945, Mrs. Lewis "will read the pledge ritual for the initiation at a table with a large bowl of yellow roses flanked on either side with tall black candles." The number of members dropped to 10 by the time of the first 'Ritual of Jewels' ceremony. The organization remained at 10 members until 1949, when members from Kappa Chapter split to form Beta Chapter. On 3 October 1950 the first meeting of Beta Sigma Phi City Council was held. Another chapter, Tau, was created later as was Nu Phi Mu Junior Chapter. In Lethbridge, the members work their way up through various levels according to a planned program of the larger organization. The members meet in each others' homes twice monthly and take turns making educational presentations on a variety of topics: music, health, history, home, famous women and literature. The local chapters of Beta Sigma Phi have provided volunteer and/or financial support to organizations including Harbour House, Meals on wheels, Canadian Cancer Society, Arthritis Society, Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Alberta Heart and Stroke Foundation. Beta Sigma Phi also provides scholarships to Lethbridge College and the Kiwanis Music Festival.
