History: The architectural style of Southwestern at Memphis Sorority Row Historic District, and the other campus buildings, was specified by college president Charles E. Diehl. He included proposed fraternity and sorority lodges, which were to be of Arkansas sandstone and have metal windows and slate roofs with roof spans of not more than twenty feet and a pitch of 52 degrees. Even during subsequent renovations these specifications have largely been followed. The result is that Sorority Row makes a strong contribution to the campus’s continuity and harmony.
