Profiles of who we are:
This is Alpha Chapter #3 - 8/13/11
Bro. Charles "Dip" Thompson, Alpha 1915
(taken from NIKH Vol.II 1915. Howard's first yearbook, called the NIKH, was published in 1914, one year after the Founders graduated. The yearbook took on several different names over the years before settling on The Bison in 1923)A very interesting occurrence happen during the first decade or so of Alpha Chapter. Almost every Brother initiated into Alpha Chapter during this time went on to obtain their advanced degree (including all of the Founders; note that Professor Just had his Bachelor's from Dartmouth at the time of the Fraternity's founding. He did not receive his advanced degree until 1916). Bro. Thompson when on to graduate from Howard's Dental School in 1917. Why did almost all the Bros go on to obtain their advanced degrees? Was this just a coincidence or another reason?
