History

Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) is an all-male fraternity first established in 1899 in Illinois which quickly spread across the United States and Canada. It is currently one of the largest fraternities in North America. Although many fraternities developed bad reputations the “Tekes” were known for their non-discriminatory membership and solid personal qualities. The University of Manitoba chapter of the TKE was established in 1958. By the 1960s University of Manitoba "Tekes" had a fraternity house off campus on Balmoral Street in downtown Winnipeg. By the 1970s interest in fraternal organizations waned in Winnipeg and the chapter ceased functioning in 1979.
