Pi Kappa Tau Brotherhood Facts
...a work in progress

To Pi Kappa Tau Brothers
From Curt Ebbesmeyer

    During the 2004 reunion, the brothers listed pledges, pledge masters, pledge captains, presidents and other info in my brown day book.  These are the lists that resulted.  There are gaps and misspellings etc.
    At the next reunion, I plan on posting a separate page the wall for the brothers to make notes on asking for correct names and ways to locate lost brothers.
    Next, I will: 1)  Enlarge each collage to poster size and write the name of each brother beneath his photo.  I was careful to include a picture of the brothers who attended each reunion; 2) On the lists below, mark the reunions which brothers attended so as to identify those we need to locate; 3)  At the next reunion, display the posters in the hospitality suite and send the scans plus lists to Turton for posting on the PKT website.
    Please take a moment to correct anything.  I’ll fix things up over the coming months and place this out on a table in the hospitality suite for all to mark up.  After that, perhaps it will be ready for prime time on the PKT website.

Summary:
    Fraternity founded July 2, 1961.  Charter members plus 15 pledge classes during 8 years (1961-1968) total 160 men of which 49% attended at least one reunion 35-41 years later (1996-2004).  A remarkable achievement!  We need to focus on finding the men of the ‘65-‘68 pledge classes.
