Something to note from the Wikipedia page for Alpha Delta Pi: "In 1905 the Adelphean Society changed its name to Alpha Delta Phi (ΑΔΦ), but was later changed because a men's fraternity by the same name was already well established at many universities where ADPi wanted to start chapters."

It is possible that this name change could cause some confusion. However, I have not found evidence of an Alpha Delta Pi chapter in Utah. There is a current Alpha Phi sorority, but I'm not sure how old that is. 

Hunting down the 1949 edition of Baird's Manual of American College Fraternities would allow you to narrow down the possibilities. I suggest contacting a librarian at the University of Utah or an alumni group for further assistance.
