Kappa Delta Foundation Christmas Seals Through the Decades
As the end of another decade draws near, let’s celebrate the holiday season by revisiting some of our favorite Christmas seals from each decade.
1929: Designed by Dorothy Duggar (Sigma Lambda-Auburn), this Christmas seal illustrates Kappa Delta’s support of the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU.
1938: This seal designed by Elizabeth Pegram (Sigma Delta-Duke) is a moment of peace and calm during a normally busy time of year.
1945: In the midcentury modern style, this seal designed by Henrietta Elliston Warren (Beta Epsilon-Tulsa) is sweet and joyful.
1954: This jolly red Santa, also designed by Henrietta Elliston Warren, surely brightened each envelope it adorned.
1960: Three fir trees on this Christmas seal designed by Barbara Loftus (Beta Epsilon-Tulsa) are as sweet and simple as the come.
1971: A break from standard convention, this Christmas seal designed by Carole Hawes Bond (Epsilon-Louisiana State) is sketched.
1982: The cutest little ornament, designed by Cary Brooks Rupert (Omega Xi-Cincinnati0.
1999: Designed by Emily Chandler (Alpha Chi-Louisiana Tech), a Christmas tree made of lights was sure to delight!
2005: Rudolph made his debut on this seal designed by Rachel Dorenfeld (Zeta Mu-Towson).
2019: We may be biased, but we love this year’s design by Amy Becham (Delta Chi-LaGrange)!
Since the first Kappa Delta Christmas seals were distributed in 1925, this one-of-a-kind initiative has raised funds for scholarships and educational opportunities, provided internships and leadership training, and supported our national philanthropies and numerous local community outreach programs.
Happy Holidays from the Kappa Delta Foundation!
