Eta Phi Chapter
In early 1925, Brothers Matthew Bullock, Esq., and Dr. Theodore E. McCurdy surveyed the area and petitioned the National Office to establish a graduate chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. in Boston, Massachusetts. They did this so that they could continue their fraternal union as Omega men beyond the undergraduate year. Their petition was approved on July 1, 1925 under the leadership of Grand Basileus George L. Vaughn, and the Eta Phi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. was chartered.
