As early as 1940, graduate chapters of Zeta Phi Beta began to realize the importance of the prestige, good will and cooperation of
women who, for various reasons, were not members of any Greek-letter organization. Under the administration of Mrs. Lullelia Walker Harrison, 12th International President, the first Amicae chapter was organized in Omaha, Nebraska in 1947 making Zeta the first sorority in the National Pan-Hellenic Council to organize an auxiliary group.
Amicae are women who believe in and support the ideals of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., but have not attended college.
