The Founders Of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc.
Dr. Oscar J. Cooper (1888 - 1972) - The City of Brotherly Love may never inherit a citizen as diligent, professional, dedicated, and focused as brother Oscar J. Cooper. Brother Cooper was a graduate of D.C.’s M Street High School. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from Howard University in 1913. In 1917 he earned the degree of Doctor of Medicine from Howard University. For half a century, brother Cooper practiced the art of internal medicine in Philadelphia, PA approximately 3 hours from where he received his medical degree. During his undergraduate days, he was one of the original "Three Musketeers" who founded Omega Psi Phi. The Good Lord blessed brother Cooper with eighty four years of life; he left behind a legacy of scholarship which will long be remembered not only by the brothers of Omega, but by all men who seek to set them selves apart from the average individual in society.

Brother Coleman was born in D.C. where he attended M Street High School. He received his Bachelor of Science Degree from Howard University in 1913.
