Biographical / Historical

Delta Kappa fraternity was founded at Davidson College in 1946 for the sole purpose of obtaining a national fraternity charter. In 1948 the group became the Delta Lambda chapter of Sigma Chi fraternity. In 1969, the fraternity divided, creating an off-campus organization call the Machis and then later voted to end its affliation with the national office. The group folded in 1971 due to the implementation of the self-selection policy at Davidson College.
