88-Year-Old Bro. Dr. Albert Miles Davis Ceremonial Paddle Presented To Alpha Rho Chapter Alumni Association’s Archives At Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library




By APCAA Staff


On Monday, March 18, 2024, The Alpha Rho Chapter Alumni Association (APCAA) welcomed the family of the late Bro. Dr. Albert Miles Davis (Fall 1936) as they presented his treasured ceremonial fraternity paddle to the APCAA archives at The Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library.


APCAA's president BMaynard Scarborough, GM Alzay F. Calhoun, CFO Amin S. Aleem, and caucus leaders joined Bro. Davis' wife Mrs. Myrtle Reid Davis (former Atlanta City Councilmember and the first woman to run for the office of Mayor of Atlanta) and daughter Ms. Stacey Davis Stewart (CEO of Mothers Against Drunk Driving/MADD) in the presentation and discussion about Bro. Davis' professional contributions to Atlanta's African American community, and how the artifact was recently discovered in the holdings of his daughter, the late Fulton County Magistrate Judge Stephanie C. Davis.



The 88-year-old artifact will become the association's most significant fraternal holding, and will be incorporated into select ceremonial events during the chapter's 2024 centennial year, and beyond.


Also in attendance for the presentation was close Davis family friend Bro. Richard M. Shropshire (Kappa Theta) of the UNCF, who is also the grandson of legendary Morehouse College sociology department chairman Dr. Walter R. Chivers (namesake of Chivers Dining Hall on the historic campus).
