On behalf of the Founders and all the Brothers of ΔKA, I would like to welcome you personally to our Fraternity website. It's hard to believe that 50 years have passed since that Sunday night of October 8, 1961 when, upstairs in the PJC Library Conference Room, Alfred Maurice Shams, Ira Lee Jones, and I met in secret and laid out the principles of Delta Kappa Alpha. Our beliefs were sustained by nine other men of character who joined us as First Brothers three nights later.
A tenth man, Leslie A. McLean, Jr., who is also my Brother in Pi Kappa Alpha, provided mentoring and leadership to the Founders and First Brothers. As an initiate of Pi Kappa Alpha, and in good conscience, Les declined initiation into our Rite. To honor him, the 13th place in the Bond Book is to be left blank in perpetuity. Since then nearly four hundred of us have signed the Bond Book that made us Brothers.
On July 29 & 30, 2011 we celebrated this amazing milestone in Pensacola. We recognized Brothers, shared memories, rekindled old friendships and made new ones.
If this is your first visit to the website, please go to Profile Entry in order to familiarize yourself with the registration process. From there, continue on to the In the Bonds page to register and update your profile.
Please encourage other Brothers to do the same. We are still trying to locate many Lost Brothers. Please take a look at the list and let us know if you have any helpful information.
As noted previously, there is a fully active Alumni Association in Pensacola. Read the latest news on the Alumni Association page. You can see the list of Brothers who are involved, and, don't forget to pay your annual Alumni Association dues.
We hope you will enjoy and contribute to our Fraternity website. Be sure to save it to your Favorites and return often to check for updates.
Lastly, you are going to need passwords to enter four pages of this website. I can't provide them here for all to see, but just send me a request using the Contact Us link and I'll send them to you.
We are looking forward to hearing from all of you! It is our hope that as you think back, you will reflect fondly upon the days that began almost 50 years ago.
