The Creed of Alpha Tau Omega
To bind men together in a brotherhood based upon eternal and immutable principles, with a bond as strong as right itself and as lasting as humanity; to know no North, no South, no East, no West, but to know man as man, to teach that true men the world over should stand together and contend for supremacy of good over evil; to teach, not politics, but morals; to foster, not partisanship, but the recognition of true merit wherever found; to have no narrower limits within which to work together for the elevation of man than the outlines of the world: these were the thoughts and hopes uppermost in the minds of the founders of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity.
Otis Allan Glazebrook
The ATO Creed begins by stating: "To bind men together in a brotherhood based upon eternal and immutable principles," and the Delta Chapter has done just that -- creating lifelong bonds of friendship.
Alpha Tau Omega came to fruition on September 1865, just four short months after the Civil War had come to a conclusion. Through those four tumultuous years, Otis Allan Glazebrook devised the creation of a fraternal organization focused on the Christian ideal of brotherly love and to mend the fractured relationship between the North and the South. This idea became a reality on September 11, 1865, as Glazebrook was joined by close friends Alfred Marshall and Erskine Mayo Ross at his home on 114 East Clay Street in Richmond, Virginia to sign the Alpha Tau Omega Constitution.
The Virginia Delta Chapter of Alpha Tau Omega was chartered on November 25, 1868 by William George Bennett and Frederick A. Berlin. To this day, the Delta Chapter has created friendships, memories, and brotherhood.
