Charles I. Brown

The most honorable founding father Charles I. Brown was physically a little smaller than average; his cheek bones were high, his "cowlicks" deep.  Socially, he was known to be a "perfect gentleman."  This is to say that he had that gracious courtesy that is commonly associated with the Eighteenth Century ideal type; never hurried, never flustered reticent and affable.  He was the third member of the "Great Three" who founded Phi Beta Sigma.  The most honorable founding father Charles I. Brown entered Howard University in 1907 graduating in 1914.  After Graduating, he taught English for public schools in Topeka, KS.  The most honorable founding father Charles I. Brown is noted for founding Delta Chapter at Kansas State University, the first chapter in Sigma History to be chartered on a racially mixed university campus.
