3 Omega Chapter Alerts From 1960s Alpha Rho: Brothers MARION FYE (Fall 1964), ALBERT DUNCAN (Fall 1
The 1960s were particularly fruitful years in producing good Brothers to build upon the rich legacy of Alpha Rho at Morehouse College. Altogether -- there were 19 separate initiation periods that produced the decade with this highest roster of members in the 96-year history of the chapter.
Today, we dive deep into the chapter archives to help tell the distinct stories of three of our beloved Brothers who have now entered the fraternity's Omega Chapter. We speak the names FYE, DUNCAN and DAVIS in their eternal earthly absence.
A native of Dublin, Georgia and the and son of the late Rev. Marion F. Fye, Sr. (Morehouse '27), Brother Fye is proudly recognized by the Alpha Rho Alumni Association for making the first general membership financial contribution to the innovative campaign to salute the 90th anniversary of the chapter's founding. The campaign resulted in the establishment of the first and only Alpha Rho Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund at Morehouse College, and the installation of the iconic chapter obelisk on the campus green in Atlanta, Georgia.

Of historical note, the "Fye" legacy in the roster of Alpha Rho initiates is shared by his brother, Edward Mathis Fye, who followed his elder brother into the fraternity by way of the Heavy 19 (Fall 1967), the second largest intake group of the 1960s.
