Delta Kappa was a big part of our Fraternity and how it came to be. Delta Kappa is a big part of our Fraternity on a local level. The following history is taken and adapted from the Fall 1961 issue of The Deltan, the official Delta Kappa National Newsletter. -Special thanks to Brother Red Moeller for sharing these materials with us all.
The First Incorporation
Delta Kappa National Fraternity was originally founded under the name of Kappa Kappa Kappa at State Teachers College, Buffalo, New York, in 1920 by five men who constituted almost the entire male registration at that time. The purpose of the Fraternity was to foster the development of fellowship, scholarship, and leadership through the socializing influence of fraternal life.
The success of the venture was so pronounced that other schools soon became aware of the benfits to be derived and petitioned for installation of chapters.
