Title

The Web 1961 "Kappa Alpha"

Description

The text on the 1961 Kappa Alpha spread explains that it was created at Washington and Lee University in 1865, and is the "only national fraternity which bases its principles upon the life of an actual person—Robert E. Lee." The fraternity "is Southern in the significant sense that its essential teaching is that its members shall cherish the ideal of the Gentleman, of which Robert E. Lee is the perfect expression." Social highlights of the year included the "'Share Cropper's Stomp'" and "Old South Ball."
