FORMER DISTRICT REPRESENTATIVES

 

 

A Recount Of History From Former Grand Basileus Avery

In the early years of the fraternity there were no such thing as districts. I suspect the reason was the fraternity had not grown to where they were necessary. It was in 1923 that then Grand Basileus, Brother J. Alston Atkins, appointed district representatives. At the time, he had the responsibility for the entire fraternity. When Omega began to grow that is when I think Brother Atkins felt he could not manage things alone. I am not sure but the Dreer History book may indicate the district areas involved.

Anyway, it was not until 1946 that there was a Second District Representative. His name was Mifflin Gibbs out of Mu Omega in Philadelphia. I know he was first appointed in 1946. He was elected to that office in 1947. Brother Ermon Jones was apparently the 1st Vice DR in 1957, unless he had taken the place of Brother Brooks by then because he initiated me. Brother Brooks may have been sick, out of office or for some reason not being the DR doing the initiations. Bro. Jones became DR in 1959.
