Most fraternities were founded sometime in the 19th century. Times were tough back then. If a man wanted to survive, he needed to be strong. He also needed a strong name. It just so happens that a lot of the founders of fraternities had such names. I’ve painstakingly researched for tens of minutes and found what I believe to be the all-star roster of fraternity founding fathers, based solely off their names.
