History of the Southeastern Province

As is documented in The Story of Kappa Alpha Psi, the Southeastern Province can be dated back to 1926 when Deaver P. Young was the Province Polemarch. Prior to 1924, the provinces were known as Regions One through Seven. The Southeastern Province, as we know it today, was formed in 1951. Until that time, the province included all chapters along the eastern seaboard from North Carolina to Florida, including Georgia and Alabama. The last Polemarch to serve the province under that organization was Toussaint L. Hale of Birmingham, Alabama. In 1951, Brother Hale was appointed as Polemarch of the Gulf Province (which was later named the Southern Province) which included Florida and Alabama.
