Excerpt from Catalogue of the Kappa Alpha Fraternity: 1865-1900

It is with mingled feelings of relief and pleasure that the accompanying Catalogue is presented to the fraternity. During fifteen months the labor has been all-absorbing, and the relief at realizing the task completed, is known only to those who have experienced the sensation. The demands of the Catalogne have consumed much time that should have been spent in other employments. But the time and labor have been given freely, and if the results are such as to receive the approval of the fraternity, the Editor will feel that the time has not been spent in vain.

For convenience in finding, the chapter rolls have been inserted in (Greek) alphabetic order, rather than in the order of their establishment, and for the same reason the lists of members have been similarly arranged. The geographical index of members, the first that has appeared in a K. A. Catalogue, has been prepared with considerable expenditure of labor, and it is hoped that its usefulness will justify the outlay.

Within nine years the members have almost doubled, and the first Catalogue contains the names of 4481 initiates, of whom 4119 are alive and in good standing. During the same time
