middlewesternprovinceHistory Of The Middle Western Province The Middle Western Province was established in 1920 as the "Seventh Region" of Kappa Alpha Psi, under the leadership of Regional Director Harrison W. Hollie who served in that capacity until 1924. Regional Director Roy C. Garvin served from 1924 through 1926, then Carl Roman Johnson became Polemarch of what was then described as the "Western Province" of the fraternity. Brother Johnson served from 1926 through 1929. He was followed by J. S. Hunnicutt (1929-1932), W. H. Beckett (1932-1933), Percy Harold Lee (1933-1955), Wyatt F. Jeltz (1955-1967), Charles F. McAfee (1967-1975), Art S. Williams (1975-1977), Ed Bivins (1977-1982), Ivory Johnson, Jr. (1982-1991), Cordell A. Stephens, Sr. (1991-1994), Willie H. Burnett, Sr. (1994-1996), Reuben Anderson Shelton, III (1996-1998), Broderick R. Crawford (1998-1999), Adolphus Morris Pruitt, II (1999-2003), and Elmer J. Crumbley (2003-2009). In 1935, the Western Province was renamed the Middle Western Province. At the time, there was one chapter in the Western Province - the Upsilon in Los Angeles (CA). In that year, the Middle Western Province was defined to include four states: Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma. In 1939, Colorado was added when Beta Theta was chartered on May 29th of that year in Denver, Colorado. Beta Theta was a "hybrid" chapter that included both undergraduate and alumni members until Denver Alumni was chartered fifteen years later on February 20, 1954. In 1979, the northwest corner of Arkansas was added to the province when Iota Tau was chartered on April 8th of that year in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Consequently, there are now chapters from six states in the Middle Western Province. The 46 chapters of the Middle Western Province are: 01/01/16 - Eta 03/27/20 - Mu 04/19/21 - St. Louis Alumni 11/05/21 - Rho 04/25/22 - Oklahoma City Alumni 03/31/23 - Kansas City Alumni 04/14/25 - Topeka Alumni 04/14/25 - Wichita Alumni 09/09/29 - Alpha Eta 05/23/31 - Tulsa Alumni 10/28/33 - Alpha Pi 05/16/36 - Alpha Psi 05/29/39 - Beta Theta 05/18/40 - Jefferson City Alumni 03/22/41 - Pittsburg Alumni 02/07/42 - Beta Nu 03/15/46 - Muskogee Alumni 03/17/47 - Beta Psi 11/22/50 - Omaha Alumni 02/20/54 - Denver Alumni 06/13/56 - Wewoka Alumni 09/06/58 - Delta Upsilon 03/18/61 - Delta Omega 02/23/63 - Epsilon Gamma 03/23/63 - Lawton/Fort Sill Alumni 05/18/63 - Epsilon Eta 04/03/71 - Zeta Theta 02/26/72 - Zeta Rho 04/13/73 - Langston Alumni 04/14/73 - Zeta Omega 05/05/74 - Eta Kappa 09/21/74 - Colorado Springs Alumni 11/01/74 - Eta Omicron 01/15/76 - Norman Alumni 04/08/79 - Iota Tau 02/23/80 - Iota Omega 09/20/81 - Columbia Alumni 11/17/84 - Mu Alpha 02/09/85 - Mu Epsilon 03/23/85 - Mu Eta 10/10/87 - Nu Epsilon 05/20/89 - Lincoln Alumni 12/14/96 - Fayetteville Alumni 05/15/99 - Omicron Zeta 12/05/02 - Omicron Pi 03/23/03 - Independence Alumni (NOTE: Not all of the chapters listed are currently active and/or in good standing. And, there are three undergraduate chapters whose letters were irrevocably "retired/recalled" from Kappa Alpha Psi and are not listed with our province. Therefore, there "have been" a total of 49 chapters charterd in the province.)View all posts by middlewesternprovince
