Dr. Blanton came to Montana on April 13, 1940 to organize Montana as the thirty-sixth state in Delta Kappa Gamma. Alpha Mu State was organized at the Finlen Hotel in Butte, MT. Following a one o'clock luncheon, members were initiated, dues were collected, officers were elected and installed for Alpha Mu State. Alpha and Beta Chapters were chartered at that time. Plans were made to organize four chapters in the state. An attendance of 54 was reported.Dr. Blanton collected the dues and initiation fees until she became loaded down with cash, much of it in silver dollars. As the group met later in her room, Dr. Blanton emptied her pockets and purse, scooped up the piles of bills from her bed, and said, "This money is all mixed up. I don't know what to do with it. Here, Bess, you be the treasurer and straighten it out." Dr. Blanton dumped the money in Bess' lap. (Bess Stone served as the state treasurer from 1940 to 1946.) Dr. Blanton went to Billings next and installed Gamma Chapter on April 15 before going to Great Falls to install Delta Chapter on April 16. She then went to Idaho to organize Alpha Nu State at Pocatello on April 18, 1940. Information taken from Fifty Years in Montana Ethel T. Picton State Editor 1966-1990.
