TKE’s Celebrate Founding College's First Integrated Frat  
 
‘To me, pledging this fraternity was the most important thing I did here. You guys held your ground,’ said John Fargher ’66. He noted that when George Wallace visited Crawfordsville [in 1968], ‘we as a fraternity picketed him.’ While in the Air Force, Fargher had a secretary who was a cousin of Wallace, so years after the picketing, he had the chance to meet the Governor. 'I talked to him about it, and he remembered what we had done.' Ong pointed out that 'we picketed him, but did not attempt to prevent him from speaking. We didn’t do it with the idea of stifling his right to speak.'
