Under the leadership of Grand Basileus Albert W. Dent, Brother Stanley Herbert Adams served as the first Sixth District Representative. Sixth District records indicate that Brother Adams served in this capacity from 1935—1943.
The Oracle (March 1947) saluted Brother S. Herbert Adams in “Omega Academic Awards For 1946.” Brother Adams, who served as Registrar at Johnson C. Smith University, Charlotte, NC, received a $250 scholarship to aid in the completion of doctoral studies at New York University and a definitive work on the office of the registrar in American colleges. The following excerpt references the high regard of Brother Adams:
“Brother Adams came to us from Barbados, British West Indies and became an American citizen. He attended Harrison College in Barbados and received the A.B, and A.M. degrees at Durham University, England and he has done further study at Columbia University. He spent four years as Instructor in Latin in British Guiana, S.A., and came to Johnson C. Smith as Instructor in Latin and History in 1923. His long-time exemplary service as Sixth District Representative has made him well known to the Fraternity” (Oracle, March 1947 p. 20).
The Mighty Sixth District consists of the states of North Carolina and South Carolina, has over 100 graduate and undergraduate chapters and over 2,000 members. It is the home of the current Grand Basileus, Brother Antonio Knox – 40th and Brother C. Tyrone Gilmore, the 34th Grand Basileus.
