Robert Kutz served as the Fraternity Grand Historian for an unmatched span of 34 years, recording the Fraternity history, authoring numerous versions of the Chapter History Sketches, and often traveling cross country at his own expense to document and preserve our history. 

He has been instrumental in our Western growth, serving as the installing officer or Grand Council representative for most of our chapters established on the West Coast along with helping to establish chapter endowments for many of these chapters, most of whom had few living alumni at the time of Chartering. He is a 1981 Delta Beta Xi inductee for his sustained alumni involvement to the Fraternity and was the 1994 Evin C. Varner Distinguished Service recipient.
