Excerpt from Phi Beta Kappa, 1901: Hand-Book of the Beta Chapter of Maine, Colby College The Phi Beta Kappa Society was founded December 5, 1776, at William and Mary College, Williamsburg, Virginia. It was a social and literary society, and John Heath was its first president. The Society continued its career until 1781 when, owing to the British occupation Of the Peninsula in that year, its activity was suspended. It was revived in 1849 and continued until 1861, when, at the outbreak of the Civil War, the records Of the Society were transferred for safe-keeping to the Virginia Historical Society. In 1895, when the original chapter was again revived, they were given back to the Old College Of William and Mary.
