Intercollegiate Knights Queens 1959


Taken at the Intercollegiate Knights Queen's Ball on February 6th, 1959, this photograph shows (in order from left to right): Blythe Lynch (1959 I.K. Queen; Theta Nu Alpha), Ruth Long (unaffiliated), Suzanne Richards (1958 I.K. Queen; Phi Lambda Omicron), Linda Bumgarner (Delta Chi Delta), Kay Kienstra (Kappa Delta), Ann Broadbent (Phi Lambda Omicron). The Intercollegiate Knights were a national honor-service society for male university students. One of the annual service functions of the Pacific University's chapter was to host the I.K. Queen's Ball, where a Knight's Queen was elected. The selection process for the 1959 Knight's Queen began on January 29th, when two representatives from each sorority as well as two unaffiliated female students all attended a banquet put on by the Intercollegiate Knights where each I.K. voted on his favorite candidate for Queen. Whichever five women got the most votes became the I.K. Queen's Ball Court. The Knight's Queen is elected from among those five women and crowned during the Intercollegiate Knights Queens Ball by the past year's Queen.
