TitleCharlotte Barrell Ware With Her Candlesticks Slide
DescriptionCharlotte Barrell Ware poses with the Ware Candlesticks. The silver candlesticks were first used at Charlotte's wedding to Robert Allison Ware in 1895. She presented them to the Fraternity in 1935 after initiating the Passing of the Light ceremony at Alpha Province Convention, now a beloved Kappa tradition. The candlesticks were used in the closing service at each General Convention and in the installation of new chapters before they were retired in 1998.
