Kappa Alpha Psi was founded at Indiana University on January 5,
1911, and incorporated as a National Greek Letter College Fraternity
under the laws of the State of Indiana on April 15, 1911. The original
name was Kappa Alpha Nu, but by official Proclamation the name of
the Fraternity was changed to Kappa Alpha Psi on April 15, 1915.
Elder Watson Diggs was the guiding genius in writing the Ritual
and establishing the organization. He was ably assisted by Byron K.
Armstrong who made many contributions toward the development of
the signs and symbols of the Fraternity. Ezra D. Alexander, Henry T.
Asher, Marcus P. Blakemore, Paul Caine, George Edmunds, Guy L.
Grant, Edward G. Irvin and John M. Lee were the other Founders and
each played a role, more important than was realized, in making the
organization a success. Download kappa alpha psi initiation ritual pdf by clicking below mentioned button.
