Lambda Pi was an honor society at the University of Virginia. It has been variously described as honorary and one of two "political parties" that stood candidates for University offices.[1]

Lambda Pi was founded in 1896, and included two Virginia Glee Club alumni as founding members, Rockwell Smith Brank and Herbert Old.[2] The latest Virginia Glee Club member identified as participating in Lambda Pi was Ridgely D. Miller, who was identified as a member in 1944. The party, along with its rival Skull and Keys, voted itself out of existence in 1969.[3]
