Knight Commanders

Willard Walter Wadsworth

5th Knight Commander

Epsilon–Emory University, 1870

Born in Decatur, Georgia, in 1851, Wadsworth was initiated by Epsilon Chapter in 1870.  He transferred to Zeta later that year. Little is known about Former Knight Commander Wadsworth as he served less than five months, resigning after moving from Georgia to Mississippi, outside, as he said, the bounds of Kappa Alphaism. Wadsworth would have little contact with the Order beyond his brief term as Knight Commander. Wadsworth was president of the 1871 Convention and orator of the 1873 Convention while serving at each as a delegate of Zeta.  Wadsworth was a Methodist minister in Washington, Georgia.  He died in 1924.
