Mu Beta Psi National Honorary Musical Fraternity is a service and music fraternity with chapters and colonies at universities throughout the eastern United States. Founded in 1925 at North Carolina State University by the director of bands, Major Percy Walter 'Daddy' Price, this group began as a male-only, honorary fraternity for colleges lacking a music major. It spread early to several colleges throughout the southern United States. In 1961 it expanded eligibility requirements to admit women. By the early 2000s, the fraternity had expanded to several colleges throughout the eastern half of the United States. Although an honorary fraternity, Mu Beta Psi views itself as primarily a music service group. Several of the chapters run scholarship programs and pride themselves on providing service to their music departments. Any member of the fraternity is referred to as a 'Brother' without regard to the member's sex.
