“Hazing” A Throwback to the Middle Ages” by Frederick D. (Fred) Kershner, Jr.

Moderator Note: When I was performing initial research on hazing 1975-1989 for “Human Behavior” magazine and my 1990 “Broken Pledges: The Deadly Rite of Hazing,” no fraternity experts were more helpful than CHUCK founder Elenne Stevens and Delta Tau Delta historian Fred Kershner, Jr.

I think you’ll find this article as relevant today as it was decades ago.  Moderator Hank Nuwer

Here is Fred’s article. RIP Fred and wife Marian.  –Moderator Hank Nuwer
