Biographical Note

Alpha Omega Fraternity was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1907 by a group of dental students to fight discrimination in dental schools. Its mission was to facilitate mutual assistance, to foster self-improvement, and to repeal un-democratic policies that existed in schools of higher learning. Alpha Omega is responsible for the formation of both dental schools in Israel: The Hebrew University-Hadassah School of Dentistry and the Tel Aviv University Goldschlager School of Dentistry.
