As early as 1940, graduate chapters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated began to realize the importance of the prestige, goodwill, and cooperation of women who, for various reasons, were not members of any Greek-letter organization. During this time, a group of women organized to assist Zeta Phi Beta Sorority members in whatever capacity needed. They chose the Latin name, Amicae (Friend), for their auxiliary. Under the administration of Soror Lullelia Harrison, the first chartered Amicae group was given to Lambda Zeta Chapter of Houston, Texas.
