It all began one spring day when Victor Lewis, Jr., contacted several of his friends to explore the possibility of establishing boulé in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Having made contact with Archon Robert V. Franklin of Alpha Phi Boulé , Lewis arranged several meetings with professional men of distinction who lived in the area. In December 1995 Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity accepted the application for the chartering of Delta Nu Boulé and set a date for the ceremonies: March 9, 1996. The Marriott Hotel in Stamford was the place, and Anthony W. Hall, Jr., Grand Sire Archon-Elect, administered the installation of officers, with Victor Lewis, Jr., as Sire Archon of the boulé . Archon Victor D. Lewis, Jr., of Alpha Boulé died in Philadelphia on February 6, 1999. He was a Minton Fellow and continued his family legacy, one established by the late Grand Sire Archon Charles H. Carroll of Rho Boulé and the late Howard B. Shepard of Beta Boulé . His son Victor D. Lewis III is Sire Archon Alpha Boulé.
