Delta Sigma Pi Founder

Alfred Moysello

Alfred Moysello was born in Naples, Italy on April 20, 1884. He came to the United States at an early age and received his formal education in New York City public schools. He attended City College of New York and then enrolled in New York University in 1906. With tremendous personality, he was one of the most popular students at the university and participated wholeheartedly in all the activities of the class.

He joined with three of his classmates to establish Delta Sigma Pi at NYU, and, as a Fraternity brother, exemplified the purposes of the Fraternity. His friendliness and personality were distinct chapter assets.

In the early years, Delta Sigma Pi’s Alpha Chapter maintained summer homes on the seashore and these were an important factor in creating the Fraternity spirit so badly needed in the critical early days of Delta Sigma Pi. Moysello was one of the leaders in this movement.

In his career, he was connected with the Board of Education of Brooklyn for many years and gave much of his time to the study of juvenile delinquency and child psychology.

Moysello was in attendance at Delta Sigma Pi’s 13th Grand Chapter Congress in Philadelphia in 1939 and is well remembered for the active interest in Delta Sigma Pi he displayed throughout his life. He was married and had one son, Alfred Moysello, Jr.
