Did you know?
George Biddle Kelley (BS, Civil Engineering 1908), was one of the seven founders of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity at Cornell University in 1906, and Alpha chapter’s first President. At the start of the 20th century, black students at American universities were often excluded from fraternal organizations enjoyed by the predominantly white student population. During the 1905–06 school year, black students at Cornell organized the first Greek letter fraternity with the aim to provide an opportunity for association and mutual support among African-American students.
