Alpha Kappa Psi was started at New York University on October 5, 1904, making it the first Professional Business Fraternity in the nation. Our ten founding fathers were Frederic R. Leach, George L. Bergen, Irving L. Camp, Robert S. Douglas, Daniel V. Duff, Howard M. Jefferson, Nathan Lane Jr., Frederic R. Leach, Morris S. Rachmil, Herbert M. Wright, and William O. Tremaine. In over 100 years of progress we have welcomed hundreds of thousands to become brothers. In 1976, we welcomed women into our organization who play a vital role in Alpha Kappa Psi today.
