Specific handshakes. Whispered mottos. All Greek-letter organizations have their traditions, but only a few were founded as true secret societies. The Pi Kappa Phi fraternity is one of those few, and since 1904 has grown from just three members to several thousand. A number of famous people have pledged their loyalty to the white, gold, and royal blue. Celebrity Pi Kappa Phis include musicians, professional athletes, and even a few notable politicians.

Graham got his B.A. in Psychology in 1977 and a J.D. in Law four years later. Baseball legend Tommy Lasorda is a member-at-large of Pi Kappa Phi. Other famous men featured on this list of famous Pi Kapps include Joe Sewell, Ed Lu, and Chris Moneymaker.
