Over the last 67 years, the Boston Alumni Chapter has been home to brothers, who have not only been leaders within Kappa on a Province and National level but have also been pioneers within their respective industry of work. Bro. Dr. Henry Aaron Hill, the 1st Polemarch of Boston Alumni, co-founded National Polychemicals, Inc. and the Riverside Research Laboratories, and became the 1st Black president of the American Chemical Society in 1977. Bro. Abraham B Fischer, the 1st Lt. Strategus, became the 1st African American to become a licensed pharmacist in the state of Massachusetts. Bro. Wade H. McCree, Sr., a charter member, also helped charter the Gamma chapter at the University of Iowa on March 7, 1914.

Boston Alumni has been fortunate to host fraternal events at both the Province and National level throughout its history. Boston Alumni has had the opportunity to host the 53rd Grand Chapter Meeting in 1965, as well as the 54th (1984), 67th (1997), and 85th (2015) Northeast Province Councils.
