The Brooklyn Four
The story of Alpha Kappa Psi begins at New York University. In the fall of 1902 George L. Bergen, Nathan Lane Jr, Frederic R. Leach, and Howard M. Jefferson met each night after class to walk to City Hall and then across the Brooklyn Bridge to their homes. These eager students, known today as the Brooklyn Four, founded Alpha Kappa Psi Fraternity on October 5, 1904. Since its founding Alpha Kappa Psi has helped develop leaders such as U.S. President Ronald Reagan, Co-Founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanian, and Founder of Walmart Sam Walton. Today Alpha Kappa Psi is recognized as the oldest and largest professional business fraternity with over 240,000 lifetime members coming from 271 chapters worldwide.
