Kappa Delta Rho (also known as KDR) is an American college social fraternity, with 78 chapters (38 of which are active) spread out over the United States, primarily in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions. Kappa Delta Rho's open motto is Honor Super Omnia, or Honor Above All Things. Kappa Delta Rho was founded in room 14 of Old Painter Hall at Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT on May 17, 1905. It formed out of the Middlebury Commons Club, and had ten principal founders: George Edwin Kimball, Irving Thurston Coates, John Beecher, Thomas Howard Bartley, Pierce Wordsworth Darrow, Benjamin Edward Farr, Gideon Russell Norton, Craig Tyler Dunkle, Chester Monroe Walch and Roy Dyer Wood. Unusual among college fraternities, KDR's Alpha Chapter at Middlebury was forced to coeducate in the early 1990s, due to a policy at the school against single-sex organizations.
