Donate to the Robert D. Lynd Memorial Scholarship Fund


Our Brother Bob Lynd, Iota ’67 passed to Chapter Eternal on July 13, 2015 after a decade-long struggle with cancer.  

Bob’s contributions to Kappa Delta Rho have been extraordinary.  While Bob served in leadership roles within his undergraduate chapter at Bucknell (as President, Treasurer and Social Chair), his service to Kappa Delta Rho and the larger fraternal movement had only just begun.  He served as a member of our National Board of Directors for 24 years, more than half of them as National President.  Extending to serve beyond the boundaries of KDR, Bob also served on the board of the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) for 8 years, also serving as its President.  In the last decade, he served his own Iota Chapter as advisor, alumni board member, and leader of its most recent recolonization effort, while also being active as an Emeritus member of the National Board of Directors.  He believed strongly in the promise and value of the entire fraternal movement, and his dedication was unwavering.  He constantly exhibited a strong heart, a creative mind, and a positive spirit, as we worked together to make KDR a stronger and better Fraternity.
