HISTORICAL SKETCH

The Filiae Patriae Sorority was founded on 27th October, 1920 at the University of Tartu, thus being the oldest sorority in Estonia. It operated successfully until 1940 when Estonia was incorporated into the Soviet Union and along with most other organizations, the sorority was closed. The members who emigrated to the West founded chapters in Canada, USA, Sweden, Australia and Brazil, and those in Estonia pursued the tradition of regular meetings in informal settings.
