Chapter History

You have to know where you’ve been to know where you are going. Kappa holds a special place in its heart for Fraternity history, but every chapter of our organization has unique beginnings of its own. Each plays a part in shaping us today. Read more about our chapters’ histories in Kappa's digital archives.

Mu Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma, founded in 1878, is the longest-standing fraternity on Butler University's campus.   

A Mu Kappa, Tade Hartsuff Kuhns, proposed the idea of a national magazine. The magazine, known as The Key, is still in circulation 150 years later.    

Elizabeth Bogert Schofield, also from Mu Chapter, became Kappa's first fraternity president in 1940.
