In 1957 Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity first hosted a Calendar Girl party, in which 12 UT sorority members were contestants and one contestant (chosen previous to the event as the Calendar Girl by a prominent Hollywood personality) was crowned as the Calendar Girl. The fraternity then distributed calendars with the winner’s picture on the cover. By 1959 each sorority entered a contestant. The winner of the contest was the Calendar Girl of the Year, with her picture on the cover of the calendar. Twelve other contestants appeared as the girl for each of the 12 months. More than four thousand copies of the calendar were distributed annually.
