    Guy L. Grant Ezra D. Alexander Henry T. Asher
    Marcus P. Blakemore Paul W. Caine Edward G.

  • Kappa Alpha Psi is the 2nd oldest existing
    collegiate historically Black Greek Letter
    Fraternity and the 1st intercollegiate fraternity

    as Kappa Alpha Nu.

Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. History of Kappa
Alpha Psi
  • The Founders endured acts of racial hatred and
    hostility and formulated this fraternity to
    alleviate the feeling of isolation and raising
    the sights of Black youth higher than they may
    have otherwise realized.
  • Fashioning ACHIEVEMENT as its purpose, Kappa
    Alpha Psi began uniting college men of culture,
    patriotism and honor in a Bond of fraternity.
  • Since it's founding in 1911, the Fraternity has
    never limited membership based on color, creed or
    national origin.
  • KA? has over 125,000 members with 700
    Undergraduate and Alumni chapters in every state
    of the United States, and international chapters
    in the United Kingdom, Germany, Korea, Japan, the
    West Indies and South Africa.

Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. History of North
Central Province
  • In the beginning, the Fraternity was essentially
    a coalition of chapters, located mainly in the
    Midwest. As the Fraternity continued to grow, a
    strategic plan was implemented to effectively
    manage the future expansion of the Fraternity and
    service its needs.
  • In 1920, Grand Keeper of the Exchequer, George F.
    David, II proposed organizing the Fraternity into
    Districts with a Director, appointed by the Grand
    Polemarch.
  • At the 10th Grand Chapter Meeting, David became
    the 3rd Grand Polemarch and initiated this idea
    and the Fraternity was divided into three
    Districts.

Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. History of North
Central Province
  • By 1922, the Fraternity had established chapters
    on 18 campuses in 12 cities, including two in the
    South.
  • W. Ellis Stewart was elected the 4th Grand
    Polemarch and he increased the number of
    Districts to 7 and they then became known as
    Regions.
  • At the 15th Grand Chapter Meeting in 1925, the
    Fraternity again adjusted the names of the
    Regions and denoted them as Provinces and
    likewise the Regional Directors were named
    Province Polemarchs.
  • There is not a direct correlation to geographical
    location of the Districts or Regions to the
    current day Provinces. Also, Province Polemarchs
    were initially appointed to govern a Province
    irrespective of where he may reside.

Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. History of North
Central Province
  • The North Central Province was originally known
    as the Central Province and included the same
    geography as today with the exception of the
    state of Iowa. Today, the North Central Province
    consists of a 5-state region including Indiana,
    Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota Wisconsin.
  • 22 Province Polemarchs have led North Central
    Province since its inception. Korlon Kilpatrick,
    II is the 23rd Brother appointed to this
    position.
  • 6 Chicago Alumni members have been appointed to
    lead the North Central Province in the capacity
    of Province Polemarch C. Leon Wilson, Julius
    Morgan (twice), Eldridge T. Freeman, Jr., Daniel
    Dixon, III and Michael Hughes, Sr.
