Los Angeles Jr Chapter History

Establishment of Los Angeles Jr. Chapter

In 1935, as a result of the foresight of the Los Angeles Chapter, a new non-religious and non-political group was formed in Los Angeles. That group consisted of 16 young men, and was the recipient of a Charter for the first Junior Chapter of the Triple X Fraternity of California.

Despite its energetic beginnings in the late 1930’s, the Jr. Chapter could not survive the depletion of its ranks by the call of duty in World War II. The Jr. Chapter was a fond memory to those that advanced to the Sr. Chapter after the War, but it was not until 1957 that the enthusiasm again reached the level necessary to launch the Jr. Chapter again. It has been going strong since then, and has been a social, athletic and charitable leader among young men in Southern California throughout the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and into the new millenium. Although ever-adjusting to changes in the American lifestyle over the decades, the Jr. Chapter has always retained teh basic ingredient of fraternalism-friendship among its members. Countless lifetime bonds and associations have been formed in the ranks of the Los Angeles Jr. Triple X, and those who have been lucky enough to have participated have benefited greatly from its seeminly endless source of brotherhood.
