Joseph Lorenzo Settles Alpha Frater Settles was born November 2, 1871, in the little town of Lexington, Illinois. He entered Illinois Wesleyan Academy in the fall of 1896 and was known as “Dad” Settles; he was nearly 25 years old at the time. He completed the Academy coursework and enrolled in college coursework, graduating from Illinois Wesleyan University in 1902. After graduation, he served as a minister for the Methodist Episcopal Church for more than 18 years. He then served as assistant treasurer of the Methodist Centenary Fund and later moved to Los Angeles as the executive secretary for the Los Angeles Rotary Club. Founder Settles remained in Los Angeles until his death on February 15, 1943.
Clarence Arthur Mayer Alpha Frater Mayer was born on May 18, 1879, in Mt. Pulaski, Illinois, and was Frater McNutt’s roommate. He graduated from Illinois Wesleyan in 1902. Mayer was the most colorful of the Founders. He was a musician of great natural ability and exceptional training. His field was the piano and pipe organ. In 1916, he and his wife and Wallace Grieves founded the Springfield College of Music and Allied Arts, of which he continued to be the director until 1926. Frater Mayer never ceased to be an active Teke and along with Founder McNutt, laid down the eight criteria by which a real Teke will always be recognized, and these epitomize the actual creed of the Founders. He also wrote the Teke Closing Ode. When Clarence A. Mayer died on August 8, 1960, Tau Kappa Epsilon lost not only a Founder, but an inspiring leader.
