History of Kappa De l ta Pi In the Spring of 1926 , a gr oup of men met to discuss the fo r m tion of a fra tern ity base d on true fellowship. The founding of Kapp a Delta Pi resulte d from this mee ting and had on its roll t h e name s of seven charter members. Lafrence Kelsey George Henderson Kent Beech er Brazer Beecher Herbert Whi t e Kent Dorman Eugene Campbell Kapp a Delta Pi is founded on¡ t h at greatest of all stories Damon and Pythias and its members are striving to l i ve the ideals as set forth in that story. High scholastic work is required of 11 active members and ple dges. From t he beginning, the National Fr a ernities on the campus as well as the Interfr at ernity Counc il have acc ord ed Kappa Delta Pi recognition of wh ich every member is proud . The Fraternity and its members have been wel l re pres ented in all campus activities and also have taken prominen t part in intermur al athlet ics . A majority of the members of Kappa De lta Pi are entirely self-supporting. Although t he Frate rnity scholas tic standings have not been published for last term , it is generally conceded on the campus that Kappa Delta Pi will lead all with a grade of 78.8 percent . The general av erage for 1926 was about 75 . Only four men will be lost at the end of the present term , Three of these will enter Indiana Un iversity School of Medicin • At the p esent time, the Fr aternity is renting a large house on Irvington Avenue, near the Universi t ye Alre ady plans are being formulate d for the building of a home near the new campus at Fairview Parko The Fraternity has n o debts and is in good financial condition. Kappa Delta Rho appeal s to us bec au se i t has t he same principles and ideals as Kappa Del t a Pi, ac cording o Professor Ra tt i , a But ler faculty member and a charte r membe r of Kappa Delt a Rho.
