Dr. DeNorris D. Crosby
Three young undergraduate students and a scientist who were on the University faculty founded the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. on November 17, 1911 at Howard University in Washington, D.C. The founders are Edgar A. Love, a divinity student who established a distinguished career as a physician in Philadelphia, Pa, Frank Coleman, a science and mathematics major who returned to Howard and taught for forty years. Our two other founders are Oscar J. Cooper and Dr. Ernest E. Just, a biologist and pioneer in embryology. The principles upon which the founders based the Fraternity are set forth in the four words: Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift.
