Brother Mac ARTHUR was the first disabled member of our Fraternity. He was instrumental in getting Delta Chapter on its feet financially, and later served as the Treasurer of the Maple Leaf Society (the Fraternity's Alumni Association. He was a graduate of Manual Arts High School in Los Angeles.
At the time Charles was initiated into our Brotherhood, Americans with disabilities were generally ignored and discriminated against in many ways. Charles taught his Fraternity Brothers that his wheel chair was a minor impediment when the job of building Delta Chapter at Los Angeles City College and later the Maple Leaf Society was concerned. He died in the late 1960s.
The date of his initiation and pledge class semester and year is not known.
