They decided to start the first fraternity that was "a fraternity in which all men were brothers, no matter what their religion; a fraternity in which ability, open-mindedness, farsightedness, and a progressive, forward-looking attitude would be recognized as the basic attributes." Chapters at other universities started soon after. While non-sectarian, it was predominantly Jewish until the end of World War II. During its history, three national fraternities merged with Pi Lambda Phi: Phi Beta Delta, Beta Sigma Tau and Beta Sigma Rho'.

"Winnicott [Donald Woods Winnicott, 18961971] has profoundly influenced contemporary psychology, psychotherapy, and psychoanalysis. His 600+ papers offer a unique compass to the psychotherapeutic process and child development.

Each entry is a journey through his papers that clearly illuminates the breadth and depth of his concepts ..."
