Notes

This list was compiled from a number of sources. The primary and preferred record is chapter election reports, followed by listings in the Omicron Oracle and Omicron Alumni News, composite photographs, and mentions in the Cross & Crescent or other sources from outside the chapter. The first alpha, Benjamin Smith, was originally elected as the fifth “Herr Vorsitzender” of the Iswza Society, and continued in the presidency after the installation of Omicron Zeta in October 1913.

Nevertheless, there are occasional gaps and conflicts. No name is found in any source for 1931. In 1964, on the other hand, no fewer than four names are recorded. And it is possible that this list omits successions or special elections if, for example, the gavel-wielder “busted out” of school. Anyone who can provide clarifications or corrections to this list is urged to contact the Heritage Committee.
