The Teke Library
In December of 1939, THE TEKE began running ads and articles centered around the Teke Library. TKE has a long history with literature. Our Founders – Settles, McNutt, Mayer, Truitt and Atkinson - created the Knights of Classic Lore. A society whose avowed purpose was "to aid college men in mental, moral, and social development." This organization would later become what we know today as TKE but literature remained a strong focus for these men. With this appreciation for literature deeply rooted in TKE history, it is no surprise that Teke Libraries are also a part of our culture as a Fraternity.
In keeping with this tradition, and just in time for winter break, we will start a new tradition. About once per month, a member of the TKE Headquarters staff, Grand Council member, or the TKE Educational Foundation team will recommend a book.
Our first recommendation comes from Frater Cory Martin. Cory is an initiate of the Upsilon-Iota chapter (IUPUI). He joined the staff in October of 2013 and has served in roles that include risk management and membership services.
Give and Take by Adam Grant
“This book dives into the psychology of organizational behavior and leadership in a way that I’ve never viewed it before. This book expels the notion that passion, hard work, and luck are the only formulas for getting ahead. Adam Grant shares how nice people don’t always finish last and in fact, they are among the elite in the world. As the Washington Post put it, this is a book that every leader should read!”
