Kappa Sigma was founded at the University of Virginia in 1869. William and Mary president Lyon Gardiner Tyler became a member of Kappa Sigma while at the University of Virginia. Kappa Sigma was established at the College of William and Mary in 1890 just two years after the institution had reopened in 1888.
Photographs of fraternity members are available in the Special Collections Research Center and in the yearbook, The Colonial Echo.
