Greetings from the 3rd District History and Archives Committee:

Lest we forget Brother Walter "Crow" Riddick - Grand Keeper of Records and Seal Emeritus, Life Membership Chairman Emeritus, 2nd Third District Representative, and former Basileus and longtime member of the exceptionally historic and consequential Lambda Omega Chapter in Norfolk, Virginia.

We hope you enjoy reading these few excerpts from past Oracles that provide a window into the life and service of this loyal Son of Omega. 

It is recorded that Brother Riddick attended St. Paul College, North Carolina A&T, and Morehouse College (where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree). There is some evidence that our late Brother Riddick was initiated into Mu Psi Chapter while attending North Carolina A&T. Should anyone be able to provide documentation confirming Brother Riddick's initiation chapter and year, the Committee would greatly appreciate your sharing (

The Monday Pearl is provided by the Third District History and Archives Committee and is a weekly sharing of fraternity content, commentary, and research of historical value we hope Brothers will enjoy and from which Brothers will draw inspiration. The Committee encourages your feedback. Should you have reactions, comments, information, anecdotes, documents, and the like, related to any of the content we share, we'd very much like to hear from you. Please send all communication to
