Our Chapter remembers a great Brother who served Kappa for 69 years. We extend our deepest and sincerest sympathies to the Peterson family.
Allen Wayman Peterson, Jr. was born in Battle Creek, MI to the late Reverend Allen Wayman Peterson, Sr. and Mrs. Harriet Golden Peterson on January 13, 1928. Allen was a member of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Due to Reverend Peterson’s ministry as an AME minister, Allen moved frequently around the state of Michigan with his parents. He later joined the Episcopal church as an adult.
Allen received his early education in Battle Creek and Lansing, MI where he graduated from J.W. Sexton High school. Allen served in the United States Coast Guard and received an Honorable Discharge before attending college. He received his BA degree from Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, MI and MSW degree from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI.
Brother Peterson was initiated into the Alpha Beta of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. in 1949 at Wayne State University. He was also a charter member of the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti-Inkster Alumni of Kappa Alpha Psi.
