Brief History

Officially founded on January 5th, 1911, our fraternity was originally known as Kappa Alpha Nu. It's name, was possibly a tribute to the black student organization known as Alpha Kappa Nu Fraternity which, founded in 1903 preceded them at Indiana University. These astute men of vision decided Kappa Alpha Nu would be more than another social organization. It would be the only Greek letter organization founded with the concept of ACHIEVEMENT. Kappa Alpha Nu began uniting college men of culture, patriotism, and honor in a bond of fraternity. The fraternity was primarily founded under the efforts and leadership of the calm, methodical, and philosophical Elder Watson Diggs, and the scholarly Byron K. Armstrong. Through their labors, the fraternity’s ritual, ceremonial forms, constitution, hymn, motto, insignia and emblems were fashioned. Each of the remaining Founders provided capable assistance by furnishing necessary sustenance to the embryonic group. The name was officially changed to Kappa Alpha Psi® on a resolution adopted at the Grand Chapter Meeting in December 1914. This change became effective on April 15, 1915. The charter members were Elder Watson Diggs, Byron K. Armstrong, John M. Lee, Henry T. Asher, Marcus P. Blakemore, Guy L. Grant, Paul W. Caine, George W. Edmonds, Ezra D. Alexander, and Edward G. Irvin.
