Norma Chipnian Chipman Wells  Red Bluff
This is quite a large photo 4 x 5 1/2 inches and  7 x 9 inches framed.
I will guess the photo is from 1900 to 1910.
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I think the middle name is Chipman. Google show her to be born in 1901.

  2. I wonder if this is her.
    Norma Chipman Wells was a founding member of the Zeta chapter at the University of California-San Francisco. She served as Grand Treasurer from 1928-1930 and Grand President from 1934-1936 and was also Treasurer of the Zeta Alumni Chapter. She and her sister, Clara Wells, attended many LKS Conventions and were known for their sisterhood in the Fraternity as well as in real life. As outgoing Grand President in 1936, Norma Wells presented a new Fraternity gavel made of California Redwood with the LKS crest to new Grand President, Cora E. Craven. This gavel is passed on to each incoming Grand President at the close of the Biennial Convention. In 1986, Norma was honored by the Fraternity with the Distinguished Service Citation.

  3. Norma Chipman Wells (2 Sep 1901 - 18 Jan 1995) and her sister Clara (1899) were adopted by Frank J Tetreau, their mother Lulu's second husband. Their father, John J Wells died between 1910 and 1920.
