Historical Note

The Greek Interpreters of East Lansing was founded on April 16, 1945 by students and faculty of Michigan State College (now Michigan State University). It was the fifth scion or offshoot of the Baker Street Irregulars of New York in the United States and also the first academically based scion. Activity of the scion waned over the years and was resurrected in 1960 by Donald A. Yates. Activity waned again in the late 1970s when Erik Beckman revived the activities. Another lull occurred in the 1990s but dedicated members Howard Brody, Ralph Turner, Etta Abrahams, Shari Conroy, and Charlie Press, banded together to keep the scion active.
