Baird's Manual of American College Fraternities (1879)/Q. T. V.
This society, confined to agricultural colleges, was founded at Massachusetts Agricultural College, in 1869, by Messrs. Ed. R. Fisk, R. W. Livermore, Wm. R. Peabody, Henry Wells, L. L. Holmes, and others. This chapter is called the “Amherst” Chapter. In 1874 another chapter was established at Maine State College, and is called the “Orono” Chapter, from the town in which the college is situated.
The total number of members is now 141.
The badge of the society is a slab, on which are engraved the letters “Q. T. V.” in a monogram. The colors are brown and white.
