Please tell us a bit about the history of the organization.
Alpha phi Alpha Fraternity was founded on Tues Dec 4 1906 at Cornell University Ithaca NY. It actually began as a social study group in 1905 for the young and very too few black men on the prodominantly white campus. Keep in mind that this is an ivy leauge school in the early 1900's . . . these black students had to go through much injustices, to say the least, in their everyday lives. Blatant racism, and abuse, as well as people aiming to cut their college career short (not wanting to see black men succeed). The group eventually evolved into an organization then it became a fraternity on december 4th 1906 (as mentioed above). We aim for scholarship, manly deeds, and love for all mankind. We are the first inter-collegiate fraternity for black men. any specific questions?

What are the names of the founders and from where did the idea spring?

There are seven founders which we refer to as the "Jewels" . . .

Jewel Henry Arthur Callis (who became a physician)

Jewel Charles Henry Chapman (professor of agriculture)

Jewel Eugene Kinclkle Jones ( founding secretary of National Urban League)

Jewel George Biddle KElley (first registered black engineer in New York)

Jewel Nathaniel Allison Murray (High School Teacher)

Jewel Robert Harold Ogle (member of US Senate board on appropiations)

Jewel Vertner Woodson Tandy (first registered black architect in New York)



. . . its original idea was not to become a fraternity, it gradually evolved into that. but the original concept was to make a social study group where the few black students of an early 1900's Cornell University could assist each other academically and also morally. being the only blacks on that campus drew them together and they soon formed a brothely bond, where they can discuss ways of combating the injustices, methods of study, or just speak of issues which were occuring.
